Nordirbek Abdusattorov, born 18 September 2004, fulfilled all requirements for the chess grandmaster title by securing his third and final gm norm on 29 October 2017 in the Chigorin Memorial
(Open) in St. Petersburg, at the age of 13 years, 1 month and 11 days.
He then became the youngest living chess grandmaster on earth and the second youngest grandmaster ever in chess
history (as of 2017).
Abdusattorov will play for the first time at Biel Masters 2018, after playing already at Areoflot Open in Moscow, Reykjavik Open, and Sharjah Masters this year.
