The World’s Youngest Grand­mas­ter Lives in Tashkent

Re­cently, Hun­gary’s Budapest hosted a tour­na­ment called First Satur­day GM Oc­to­ber 2018. Our com­pa­triot, the young chess player Javo­hir Sin­darov, who par­tic­i­pated in it, com­pleted the last norms of the in­ter­na­tional grand­mas­ter re­quire­ments.

The for­mer world cham­pion Susan Pol­gar noted his suc­cess with im­por­tance, point­ing out that Javo­hir ful­filled the grand­mas­ter stan­dards at 12 years, 10 months and 8 days, over­tak­ing the In­dian grand­mas­ter Prag­gnanand­haa Ramesh­babu, who ful­filled this stan­dard at 12 years, 10 months and 13 days, and be­com­ing the sec­ond af­ter Sergey Karyakin (12 years, 7 months), the youngest holder of this ti­tle in the his­tory of world chess.

Given this out­stand­ing suc­cess, the head of our state Shavkat Mirziy­oyev pre­sented Sin­darov with a three-room apart­ment in the Sergeli dis­trict of Tashkent city. The key to the apart­ment on be­half of the Pres­i­dent of the Re­pub­lic of Uzbek­istan in a solemn at­mos­phere was pre­sented to him by the pres­i­den­tial ad­viser A. Ab­du­vo­hi­dov.

It is worth re­call­ing that, be­fore this, our com­pa­triot Nodirbek Ab­dusat­torov was also the sec­ond youngest in­ter­na­tional grand­mas­ter.

Thus, we have ev­ery rea­son to hope that high chess ti­tles, re­ceived at such a young age, will soon grow into cham­pion ti­tles.
