  1. 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

  2. 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? 😉

  3. 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??

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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.

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