FIDE player card for Nijat Abasov

(born May-14-1995, 21 years old) Azerbaijan

[what is this?]
International Master since 2009 and Grandmaster since late December 2010. Abasov's first GM norm came with his equal first placement at the GM Tournament 'Memorial A.G. Matskevich' in Kharkiv in Ukraine in July 2009. His second GM norm came with winning the Celin Kamen GM tournament at Niska Banja in Serbia in late April 2010, and he won his third and final GM norm at the Azerbaijani Solidarity Day tournament late in December 2010, where he also took first place. It appears that a GM norm in respect of his results at the UFA-66 tournament in Ukraine was disallowed by FIDE.* Had it been accepted, he would have achieved his GM title two weeks before his 15th birthday as he had already achieved a rating of 2500 a few weeks after his 14th birthday.**

In August 2010, he was =2nd-5th in the Baku Open behind Gata Kamsky and in October he scored 7/11 in the World Youth U16 championship. In December 2010, he was first with 8/10 (+6 =4 -0) in the Azerbaijani Solidarity Day tournament and in April 2011 he came second in the Azerbaijani U20 Championship behind Vugar Rasulov. A less successful endeavour in April 2011 was in the Nakhchivan Open group A, where he only scored 3.5/9. Some productive rounds played in the Turkish Clubs Cup Chess Championship in June were followed by a mediocre performance in the powerful Baku Open (2011) where he scored 5/9. At the World Youth U16 Chess Olympiad in 2011, he scored 6/10.

Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-28-09  Thuellin: With a rating of 2525, he's the highest ranked player born after 1994. Surely he'll become a GM very soon.
Nov-12-09  BIDMONFA: Nijat Azad Oglu Abasov

ABASOV, Nijat A. O.

Nov-12-09  Prugno: Since his initials are N.A.O., if Abasov was a bit older he might have been recruited by the famous (now unfortunately closed) Paris chess club!
