In September 2009 Radjabov was top 8 for the seventh list in a row, but in 2010 he was never betetr than 10th, and he did have 15 team games with black but only 6 with white last year.Counting from the last rounds of the European Team Championship 2009 Radjabov has 17 blacks and 6 whites in his 23 latest team games, so in this period (but not earlier) it has more or less been a 3 to 1 ratio.With a Karjakin schedule instead (12 white games and 4 black in his two latest team events) he may have had a few points more on the rating list, but he hasn't played as well as expected in some events. After being rather stable around 2750 the last four years he needs to show that he can close in on 2800 and not get stuck just outside the top 10. Even if stable 2750 is quite good too.
