FIDE player card for Nodirbek Abdusattorov

(born Sep-18-2004, 17 years old) Uzbekistan

[what is this?]

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 age 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.

At the World Cup (2021) he eliminated Chithambaram V R Aravindh and then Anish Giri 3-1 (+2 -0 =2), before falling to Vasif Durarbayli 4-2 (+2 -4). He finished third at the Kramnik Challenge (2021), and second (+8 -1 =6) at the Tolstoy Memorial (2021). At the FIDE Grand Swiss (2021) he broke even with 5.5/11 (+2 -2 =7).

At the 2021 World Rapid Championship he achieved one of the most shocking results by an outsider in chess history, the rapid equivalent of Harry Nelson Pillsbury 's immortal triumph at Hastings (1895). Abdusattorov scored 9.5-3.5, tying for first with World Champion Magnus Carlsen, 2021 world championship challenger Ian Nepomniachtchi, and 2018 challenger Fabiano Caruana. En route, he defeated, among others, Carlsen, Caruana, world No. 6 Levon Aronian, and 2012 world championship challenger Boris Gelfand. Of the four tied players, Abdusattorov had the best tiebreaks and Nepomniachtchi the second best, so the two of them advanced to a playoff for the title. Abdusattorov won 1.5-.5, winning the title to become, at 17, the youngest World Rapid Champion ever.

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!

  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.

Dec-28-21  fisayo123: Youngest World Champ in history?
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: Seeing what happened today reminded me of another 17 year old kid who back in the day became US Champion:

Dec-28-21  thebully99: Congratulations to Nodi, the youngest to win a major championship title. Caissa smiled upon him today and the game just wouldn't let him lose. He escaped from 5 consecutive games where he was worse at some point.
Dec-29-21  ndg2: What stands out with him are his defense capabilities and his end game prowess. He had a couple of games in the Rapid WC where he was worse out of the opening and early middle game but he defended diligently. His end game technique was almost flawless in his win against Carlsen.

Firouzja can learn a bit or two from this youngster. Alireza's endgame technique is stilly shaky as his win against Shevchenko shows.

Dec-29-21  TheBirdman33: <Firouzja can learn a bit or two from this youngster>

Imagine the strength of <Firousattorov>, that would be unfair almost, if we could "merge" the two teenagers ;)

Dec-30-21  Mathematicar: Congrats!
Jan-02-22  Whitehat1963: Will he become the challenger to Firouzja’s throne, or vice-versa?
Jan-08-22  Mathematicar: I honestly doubt.

May-30-22  Albertan: Hé won thé 2022 Sharjah Masters tournament,congratulations!!:

Jun-08-22  EvanTheTerrible: Future world champion. He is the second strongest junior, even though his rating does not show it.

He has not played many events recently, so his rating has not caught up to his playing strength. He regularly holds his own with the world elite and it's only a matter of time until he joins their ranks.

Aug-02-22  Little Caezarz: Good storiez above. Nodirbek Abdusattorov is climbing quikly.
