Everyone knows that chess is one of the oldest and most intellectual sports. Uzbekistan can rightfully be proud of its strong chess school and legendary players: Georgy Agzamov, Shamsiddin Vohidov, Rustam Kasymjanov, and today the young star of the national chess sport Nodirbek Abdusattorov. In December 2021, the 17-year-old Uzbek grandmaster managed to beat the champions Magnus Carlsen and Jan Nepomnyashchy at the World Rapid Chess Championship in Warsaw.
In our country, the state pays special attention to the further development and popularization of the chess sport of Uzbekistan, in particular, among the youth. For this purpose, chess clubs have been opened in secondary schools of Uzbekistan and in preschool institutions, city and republican tournaments and competitions among young athletes are held.
So, from February 4 to 26, 2022, Tashkent will host the Uzbek Chess Championship among boys and girls from 8 to 18 years old in the standard, rapid and blitz categories.
The winners of the tournament will be awarded valuable prizes and diplomas.
The Uzbekistan Youth Chess Championship is organized by the Chess Federation of Uzbekistan with the support of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
