The Elo rating system is a method for calculating the relative strength of players in games involving two players. It was developed by Hungarian-American physics professor Arpad Elo.

In chess, the Elo rating is calculated based on the results of matches between players. The Elo rating system divides chess players into nine classes: the highest class starts with a rating of 2600, and the lowest class corresponds to a rating of 1200 and below.

Recently, Abdusattorov won prematurely at the super tournament in Prague.
