    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.

    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

    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 ?

  • Corteum9000


    5 ditë më parë

    @Django Leo It's easy to say Firouzja has 'zero chance' when the boy is still maturing and hasn't even reached his peak. To put things in perspecive, though, Magnus didn't reach 2800 at 18 years old. So judging by Firouzja's rate of progress, and assuming it continues its upward ascent (seems likely given the last few years of progress), it would only seem logical to conclude that Alireza is on track to surpass Magnus at some point in the near future.

    wow you'd think these prodigies all started at 4 years old or something. wow......... Edit: re the reply ' really made his achievement that much crazier. Yeah typically 4-5 is when most of the elite players started, 9/10 is old with today’s standard. The fact he only played chess for less than 10 years and is currently world number 2 is mind boggling.' --> that's exactly what i meant.....

    @Mark Callaghan He hinted at that every time ... he is basically going to retire when he loses the title, could be in many years,,

    @Jason Koch But I think Magnus will retire after this WC match , he has suggested as much a few times.

    People keep saying this like Magnus is just going to roll over for him. Magnus is still in his prime and is still by far the best player in the world. And he just dispatched Alireza with little trouble in this year's Norway chess. Alireza has been phenomenal over the past few weeks but for people to just assume he's ready to knock off the guy who has been number 1 in the world for the past decade really need to tap the brakes. Alireza has a bright future and he may be world champ one day, but Magnus is going to have a lot to say about when.
