Rauf Mamedov, who has given an interview for the Russian version of our website in the evening of February 12th, had learnt just a few minites before going on the air that he was among the players invited to the second Gashimov Memorial. That has become a total surprise for the reigning Azerbaijani champion:

'To be honest, I've learnt that just some twenty minites ago... I received an SMS from Gadir Guseinov who asked me if I was going to play in Shamkir. I was astonished since I had thought the field had been completed. I'm still quite shocked. Maybe that's some kind of a joke? I can't understand yet... I have never played in a classical tournaments close to this strength', Rauf told us.

(The full text of the interview is available in Russian)

The information has also been published by extratime.az. While it's not clear yet who of the foreign participants announced earlier is going to be replaced by Rauf Mamedov, the exact dates of the 2nd Gashimov Memorial are already known: it will take place in Shamkir from April 16th to April 25th, 2015.
