FIDE player card for Nodirbek Abdusattorov

(born Sep-18-2004, 19 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 World Rapid Championship (2021) 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.

Aug-02-22  Little Caezarz: Good storiez above. Nodirbek Abdusattorov is climbing quikly.
Aug-11-22  SymphonicKnight: Not sure how there is no Search Drop-down yet for Abdusattorov, the World Rapid Champion 2021, Olympic Gold Medalist with Uzbekistan 2022 winning Silver for 1st Board performance? The same goes for the other top juniors (besides Esipenko and Firouzja who are already on the list). Isn't it time also for them to get their own drop-down arrows in Search? Gukesh, Erigaisi, Nihal Sarin, Keymer, Niemann, and Praggnanandhaa at least among the junior players? Surely their popularity justifies such, and all are 2650+ players, unlike many already on the list?

What's up with this censorship business?

Jan-19-23  Whitehat1963: Can he promote his pawn and get the win against Carlsen?
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Very difficult for Carlsen to escape.

  OhioChessFan: 60...b2 and it's over.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Abdusattorov did in fact play b2. Carlsen will probably look for a couple minutes then resign.

  OhioChessFan: And Carlsen resigned. Huge victory for the kid.

  OhioChessFan: Sure is exciting to see. But Ferocious Ali seemed the Next Big Thing, and that really hasn't panned out yet.
Jan-24-23  Whitehat1963: I think he’s definitely ready for prime time.
Jan-29-23  EvanTheTerrible: He just missed out on winning Tata Steel. I'm sure he'll win it multiple times in years to come.

Keep in mind that Fabiano Caruana has challenged for the classical world chess championship, so he's a real professional. Nodirbek Abdusattorov was put to the test and played like Harry Houdini!!
