Kasparov congratulated Firouzja on winning the Sinquefield Cup
Garry Kasparov compared Alireza Firouzja with the wave of young talent that’s hitting the top of world chess right now — plus some shots were fired at Wesley So, who could have won the Sinquefield Cup and Grand Chess Tour with a couple of accurate moves in the penultimate round!
“Here we saw that it’s not just accidents, it’s a trend. Alireza could repeat, following Julius Caesar, veni, vidi, vici, I came, I saw and I won. Wesley made a great contribution to this great accomplishment — no offence meant, Wesley!”
