Nodirbek Abdusattorov was awarded the title of FIDE Master after becoming the 2012 Under-8 World Champion. He achieved the IM title in 2017. On October 29, 2017, he became the second-youngest Grandmaster in history (behind Sergey Karjakin) at the age of 13 years, 1 month, and 11 days, a position he held until June 2018 when Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa became a GM before he turned 13.

He was the runner-up (behind Nihal Sarin) at the World U10 Championship 2014. He scored 6/10 as his team's 4th board at the 2014 World Youth Team Chess Olympiad.

Jan-12-17  sonia91: The wunderkind applied for the IM title:
Aug-22-17  mprodrigues: I think he just notched a GM norm in the 24th Abu Dhabi International Chess Festival.

Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: That would be his second one, right?

He already missed the record age for a GM title (that is, he is older than Karjakin was at his title), but the second place in the record books, currently held by Negi, is still within reach.

Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: Would be great if chessgames made a page for Abu Dhabi Festival.

Nihal Sarin, a year older, also played, but had a more modest result than Nodirbek, who finished second to him in 2014 when they were mere youths of 9 and 10!

Aug-22-17  fisayo123: <alexmagnus> Judging by your comment history, you have an infatuation with these type of records. At the end of the day, not all these players are competing in similar type of events in terms of quality and quantity.

I know that Praggnanandhaa plays more tournaments with GM norm possibilities than Abdusattorov for instance since the former has a sponsor who provides travel and other financial support.

So whether Abdusattorov becomes a GM at 13 or 14, it's really not that serious.

Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: Just looking at who Abdusattorov has beaten already by age 12 makes me think he is already GM strength.

Andre Zhigalko GM 2571
Benjamin Bok GM 2615
Kirill Stupak GM 2564
Mads Andersen GM 2556
Luka Paichadze GM 2581

The last two at Abu Dhabi while going undefeated in 9 rounds and having a performance rating of 2608.

Sep-28-17  sonia91: He tied for first in the 14th IGB Dato Arthur Tan Open in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with 7/9:
Sep-28-17  Absentee: Perhaps it's also time for a profile picture update.
Oct-27-17  columbeau: the kid is doing very well at the CHIGORIN MEMORIAL, 5,5/6 with two gm scalps ! Sethuraman being one of them. impressive
Oct-29-17  markz: This kid become the second youngest GM in history
Oct-29-17  NightKnight: Congrats to the kid, wonderful achievement considering he does not come from traditionally rich chess culture. Will be a force to reckon with in the future, the potential is clear.
Oct-29-17  sonia91: Congrats on becoming GM at 13!
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: Uzbekistan produced Kasindzhanov, so it's not like the country had no chess culture at all.
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: Kasimdzhanov*
Oct-29-17  fisayo123: <alexmagnus> "traditionally" rich chess culture. Strawman as usual.
Oct-30-17  columbeau: Congratulations young man !
Oct-30-17  epistle: Happy to see No-Abs finally developing some muscles
Premium Chessgames Member
  ketchuplover: I second that emotion
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: A great talent, time for an updated picture. He looks about 8 here.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Congrats to Abdusattorov for becoming the 2nd youngest ever GM.

Here's a video analysis of one of his games:

Mar-02-18  Tal1949: It is a long climb from world number 636 (active players) to the top 10, but I am hoping he can achieve it. Either way it will be fun to watch.
Dec-02-18  sonia91: Uzbekistan with Abdusattorov playing the top board just won the U16 Chess Olympiad in Konya, Turkey, congratulations!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: GM Abdusattorov holds 4th seed GM Dubov to a draw at Aeroflot, Round 1.

D Dubov vs N Abdusattorov, 2019

Dubov is the highest seed <not> to win their white game in Round 1.

Feb-23-19  sonia91: Yesterday in round 3 at 17th Aeroflot Open (Group A) (2019), he beat his first 2700+ opponent (I think): last year's Aeroflot winner Vladislav Kovalev.
