Elstartolt az év és hosszú idő után az első klasszikus szuper verseny, amely végre nem a virtuális tér,hanem valódi sakkal

 
Carlsen on beating Firouzja
“I knew in my heart that once I’d taken that decision I wasn’t going to back down later on & look for equality, so I knew at that point that at least mentally I’d already burned some bridges!”

Carlsen says Firouzja’s nervousness was one of the reasons he gambled today: “I’ll be very surprised if he wasn’t winning at some point. I was not in control of this at all. “

Carlsen telling #2sjakk he took too much risk: “It was a typical first round. I think too much, and take too big risks. Luckily he became very nervous, just like in Stavanger. That saved me.”

Peter, Tania & Jan are commentating live on Carlsen-Firouzja and the other TataSteelChess Round 1 games!

“Normally as Magnus you want a smoother start – not something so high stakes in Round 1!” says Jan of Carlsen-Firouzja

Firouzja “has all the chances to fight for the world title in the future!” (Leko)

AdamGenesisArt @AdamGenesis6 Did this for Magnus today since he is our Neo from the Chess Matrix. Loving this tour! Hope he wins.

“This is the dream that Black is trying to achieve in this line!” (Peter) Jan and Peter think something has gone a little wrong for Magnus:

And since Rapport beat him in 2017, Carlsen has played 44 games without a loss in Wijk aan Zee scoring +15 =29.

Amióta Rapport megverte Carlsent 2017-ben, Carlsen 44 mérkőzést játszott vereség nélkül Wijk aan Zee-ben +15 = 29-re

Carlsen’s score in Wijk aan Zee since 2011: +44 =68 -5 (losses vs Giri, Nepomniachtchi, Karjakin, Wojtaszek & Rapport) with a performance of 2859.Actually Carlsen has never lost R1 in Wijk aan Zee (not even in B & C groups 2004-2006). Wins vs Mamedyarov and Gashimov, 11 draws.

Winning scores in TataSteelChess:
2020: 10 (Caruana)
2019: 9 (Carlsen)
2018: 9 (Carlsen *)
2017: 8 (So)
2016: 9 (Carlsen)
2015: 9 (Carlsen)
2014: 8 (Aronian)
2013: 10 (Carlsen)
2012: 9 (Aronian)
2011: 9 (Nakamura)

In Carlsen-Firouzja, Sesse has basically shown 0.00 the entire game. Perfect play

Magnus is taking risks sacrificing a pawn first on d5 and then e6! “I would say he is completely winning… if he wasn’t two pawns down” (Leko)

The 17 year old allows Carlsen to finish him off with Nxh6!! which wins on the spot.
