Alireza Firouzja

Alireza Firouzja, born on June 18, 2003, is an Iranian and French chess grandmaster known for his exceptional talent and achievements at a young age. Renowned as a chess prodigy, Firouzja made headlines by winning the Iranian Chess Championship at 12 and earning the Grandmaster title at 14, becoming the second-youngest 2700-rated player in the world. Notably, he surpassed Magnus Carlsen's record to become the youngest player to achieve a FIDE rating of 2800.

Firouzja's accomplishments extend to international competitions, including winning a silver medal at the World Rapid Chess Championship and a bronze medal at the World Blitz Chess Championship. In 2021, he clinched victory at the FIDE Grand Swiss tournament and earned individual gold at the European Team Chess Championship. His remarkable talent and success led to him winning the Grand Chess Tour in 2022.

The chess world was intrigued when Firouzja left the Iranian Chess Federation in 2019 due to the country's policy against competing with Israeli players. This decision sparked debates and controversies, with Iranian officials questioning his motives and highlighting their investment in his chess career. Despite the controversies, Firouzja continued to excel, eventually becoming a French citizen and representing France in international competitions.

Firouzja's journey from a young chess enthusiast in Babol, Iran, to a globally recognized chess grandmaster showcases his determination, talent, and resilience in overcoming challenges and pursuing his passion for chess.

In 2021, Alireza Firouzja earned a silver medal in the Norway Chess supertournament and won the FIDE Grand Swiss Tournament, qualifying for the Candidates Tournament. His success propelled him into the world's top 10 and earned him the distinction of being the youngest player to achieve a rating over 2800.

In 2022, Firouzja's journey continued with participation in tournaments like the Superbet Chess Classic and the Candidates Tournament, where he finished sixth. Notably, he secured victory in the Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz and the Sinquefield Cup, setting records and earning significant prize money.

In 2023, Firouzja remained competitive, participating in tournaments like the Superbet Chess Classic and the Norway Chess Classical Tournament, showcasing his resilience and determination. Despite controversy surrounding his rating qualification for the Candidates Tournament 2024, Firouzja ultimately secured his spot with outstanding performances in various events.
