  JointheArmy: Nordibek just turned 11 years old three months ago.

No problems at all in this game.

Dec-21-15  Pulo y Gata: Well, he's young and, for me, the young ones can afford to play with reckless abandon, to attack, to try to win. I think he was playing to draw.

  wordfunph: Nordibek's play is reminiscent of my games when i was 11.

yayyy :)

Dec-22-15  epistle: How true! You were a class by yourself at 11, Master B. Home-tutored, you had no classmates at that age.

Nordibek's name, however, is difficult to remember. So since he's just a boy, let us just call him "NO ABS" since he has no abs yet, just like you now, Master B.

  wordfunph: Nodirbek "No Abs" Abdusattorov, nice.
Dec-22-15  JimNorCal: Yeah, he made achieving a draw against a GM seem pretty simple.

Is GM Shankland considered to be a pretty cautious positional player? He didn't show much aggression in this game. Indeed by move 26 or so, White looked better.
