Sindarov and Yakubbaeva win Uzbekistan Championship

Javokhir Sindarov and Nilufar Yakubbaeva won Uzbekistan championships that were held in the second part of April in Tashkent. Both open and women’s events were round-robins with classical time control. 

The 15-year-old Javokhir Sindarov (pictured below) clinched his second national title after the first success in 2019. Despite suffering two defeats the youngster scored an impressive 9 out 12 and came out clear first a half-point ahead of Jakhongir Vakhidov and the rating-favourite Nodirbek Abdusattorov
