now 2705 and rising

 

bjorkstrand

at the expense of Ding Liren(draws) he's over 2710. that's one way of doing it.

 

 

bjorkstrand

at the expense of Cori he's tied for 28th with 2721. carry on.

He's on the rise again. The 16 year old. SO FAR he's winning at TATA STEEL. carry on kid.

 

DamonevicSmithlov

Currently in clear 1st at TaTa after 7 rounds. 5 points from 7. Rating is 2739, ranked #19.

Looks like he's movin on up like George n Weezy but so did Wei Yi and he seems to have plateaud. Never can tell.

TPR of 2889 for Firouzja at this point.  He has some tough opponents in the second half of the tournament (White against Carlsen and Vishy, Black against Caruana. Also games against van Foreest and Dubov who are playing well.), but I'm thinking he's going to win this tournament.

DamonevicSmithlov

I'm going out on a limb here and predicting he doesn't win the event but finishes top 3. 

ChessStudy123

His first classic tournament at this level... even if he loses all his next games (i don't think so) he still impressed everyone... we will see more of this guy the coming years... All top players are scared of him... and he is only 16. 

Also his second place at the world rapid was very promising.

DamonevicSmithlov

Hopefully he'll learn the rules more thoroughly and not throw tantrums when he doesn't get his way like in his last blitz game with Carlsen.
