  1. Why is this all speed chess? Being quick on Chesscom has nothing to do with his FIDE rating

  2. Amazing talent .. Still on Team Magnus though .. Can't wait for them to play a classical game whith this crazy alireza form. shame alireza is not playing Tata steel

  3. Carlsen retires in what, 30 years'ish?
    That's when Firouzja takes over the Classical crown.
    Notice i wrote "Classical", rapid and blitz will be a different story.

  4. but this is bullet and blitz… he got 2800 in classic

  5. He's going to be the first to reach 3000 FIDE. Calling it now. ๐Ÿ’ช

  6. Alireza Iran proud of you , hope soon Mullas leave the country and you compete for your own flag Iran ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ท โค

  7. Congrats firouzja what an amazing player ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฅณ

  8. He started joining tournament at 12? Or started chess at 12? If he started at 12 that is just amazing how he learned so quick.

  9. "All Fedoseev had to do was take the draw" He is so good that even an amateur like me won't go for the draw, just watching his amazing plays makes me want to play a game, same with magnus.

  10. Iโ€™m sure weโ€™ll see him at the next candidates tournament.

  11. Watching him play gives me chills!
    A legend is born!

  12. Eu posso dizer que vi carlsen e firouzja.

  13. 2800 in classical and just shows bullet/blitz lol ok

  14. Magnus has had a good run, but I think his day in the Sun is setting. Chess Players seem to be a lot like Mathematicians. They do their best work in their 20's.

  15. Kind of funny to celebrate Alireza's FiDE rating with exclusively clips of him playing bullet and blitz.

  16. he is gaining great feats in classical and u r showing his tricks for flagging opponents..๐Ÿฅด

  17. Candidates will be the true test of his strength. He's likely overrated (FIDE) currently.

  18. Man it's hard to grasp the fact that he's in my generation…

  19. Definitely someone to watch and a future contender for the world championship itself! We're living in another springtime for chess!

  20. in the future, he will be magnus opponent in the world chess championship. F as in Fischer!!

  21. I think it's still gonna take some time for him to become the World Champion, but he's on the right track.

  22. Is this a chess video or am I watching the Kentucky Derby?

  23. ๐™‰๐™–๐™ง๐™š๐™จ๐™ ๐˜ฝ๐™ž๐™จ๐™ฌ๐™–๐™จ says:

    F**k ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ goosebumps…

  24. The Alireza Firouzja era is upon us.

  25. He is really tricky thatโ€™s epic this guy will be first on the chess boards he got so much talent and a lot concentration

  26. Most overrated player of all time ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Magnus will easily beat him

  27. It was easier for Magnus to beat Vishy Anand for the title of champion than it will be for Alireza to beat Magnus.

  28. I would wipe the floor with this dude in chess.๐Ÿ˜Ž

  29. Am I missing something? At 2:38, in the background the chess board is set up wrong, behinf Firouja, (white square is on the left side – with the black rook on it).

  30. Persians Proud of you Alireza Firouzja โœŒ๐Ÿ’ฏ

  31. So proud๐Ÿค˜ Happy he left Iran to be focused on his game

  32. This is Federer-Nadal. I suspect Firo will need one or two go's in WCC matches before he takes the crown.
