  1. He is not 2800 he is currently 2770 elo rating.

  2. Seems he is like the only sensation of the last 20 years ….. way too talented and exciting player….

  3. From reading all the comments down below or hearing the excitement of the commentators, i thought i was going to see some of the greatest strategic moves in chess history, but all i saw on the board was a guy winning by flagging a lot of his opponents or exploiting the time pressure to do some cheap tricks. It really doesn't take much to impress you people, does it ?

  4. Watching this kid grow up and get stronger and stronger was epic … everyone's predicition that he would be soon going for the WCC is coming true.

  5. Alireza having similarities to Fischer is sure likable but I'll still side with the old dogs.

  6. one would think he got his rating from online chess. what a stupid video

  7. Alireza is making history. An exceptional prodigious talent. Pennsylvania 🇺🇸 USA cheers you on Firouzja. Magnus is you're arch rival now.☕🙂👍

  8. Imagine being so good that you regularly beat the living shit out of Nakamura. Nakamura. The guy who eats 2400's for breakfast. That's bloody scary.

  9. Do you hear those footsteps, Magnus? Guess who's coming for you.

  10. Well this isnt fair. Magnus broke at 17 on live rating. If it was by the end of the month it could have been formal. It's not fair

  11. It would have been much better if you had shown important games. Here we see his talent at swinging bullet games, but this achievement is not about online bullet flags but about classical masterpieces. The guy went 8/9 in his last tournament and won the Grand Swiss this month and there's no picture if it. Just bullet swings of random online tournaments

  12. and the dude is only 18 and he´s by far superior than most GM in the world

  13. The best comment from Anish Giri, "He's scripted" 😂

  14. Greeting from Tehran,Iran.Keep it up Alireza and keep going on!

  15. He's obviously a super genius! Let's wait for coming up few years.

  16. Why is every video clip on here not Classic – that's what his 2800 rating was in? Not one thing in this video had anything to do with the title of it.

  17. IRANIAN CHAMP, VIVA ALIREZA🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷

  18. Can't wait to see Alireza vs Magnus in the next world championship match!!!!

  19. 2:16 why did Hikaru stops?? He was Clearly winning on time, and the game has no increment. Alireza only have 2 secs left. Did he just resign because of some kind of honor between GMs??

  20. Imagine if he becomes the first 2900 in history too

  21. France has won the jackpot with Alireza! I hope he will be able to say a few words in French soon. But maybe French is harder to learn than chess? 😉

  22. Subtitulos en español para mayor difusión, 😀👐⭐

  23. Pretty sure his hit rating on the board and not online.

  24. We love you Ali 🙌🏽🌹🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷

  25. Magnus drinking too much at these days. He should take care. This kid coming very fast.

  26. I don't know if he can ever be the number one and I don't care I just love the way he plays very offensive and risky with a lots of unpredictable moves and creativity which makes it so much fun to watch him play

  27. I would really love to see a match with Abdusattorov Nodirbek.

  28. Firouzja is on his way to take the crone, watch out Magnus..

  29. It so cool, you can tell that Magnus is a fan of Firouzja's play. This is going to be an epic rivalry.

  30. Are we all sure that Alireza Firouzja is NOT working as an adult act0r called "Diego Perez" ? It looks like it's him.
