Four Azerbaijani GMs made it into the second round of the FIDE World Cup. Teimour Radjabov got his ticket on the tiebreak by beating Samuel Sevian in both rapid games. 

"I was playing against a pretty strong chess player, the youngest GM in the chess history of the USA, - azerisport.com cites Radjabov. - [Classical] games were tough and ended in draws. Although I had an advantage in the first game, my rival managed to save the difficult position. As the second classical game was also drawn, the tiebreak had to decide the winner. I managed to come on top. Tiebreaks are in no way a rare sight for the World Cup. Some of the matches are determined exactly on the tiebreaks... There are no weak opponents at such tournaments. All of the players came to our capital to achieve success. Competition is very high. Current tournament is the strongest in its history. Each and every of our players is trying to do his very best. My goal is to pass all rounds."
