  WannaBe: Andrey could have resigned a couple of moves earlier...
May-22-14  waustad: He probably didn't believe he was losing to a 9 year old.

  JointheArmy: Interesting fact, Abdusattorov and Zhigalko share the same birthday (September 18th)...just 19 years apart.
Oct-22-14  fisayo123: An outrageous feat. Regardless of how you slice it.

Spelling both their names correctly?

Oct-22-14  fisayo123: <Jim Bartle> Yes, that too, lol.
Dec-23-14  siggemannen: Wow, incredible play by the youngster!

  offramp: Huge series of captures between 34...Qd7 and 40...Rxb8.
Dec-22-15  Nonnus: <A few weeks ago while surfing some chess results, I stumbled on to a tournament played in Uzbekistan. I went through the results of the first round to see if there were any major upsets, and as I was about to move on, something caught my eye. I noticed that a very high-rated GM (exactly 2600) Andrei Zhigalko lost his first round to a 2057 FIDE rated player. This is of course a huge upset. But what makes it even more incredible is that the 2057 was a nine-year-old!>

Jul-16-16  fisayo123: With this game, Abdusattorov became the second youngest player ever to defeat a grandmaster in classical time controls. Awonder Liang holds the record, beating Kaufman. But Kaufman is not nearly as good as the 2600+ rated Andrey Zhigalko.
