? I thought that Carlsen is the best Blitz player?

First he said that he was going to win the Rapid and finally conquer Blitz, so far Carlsen did not win the Rapid and I am NOT too sure about the Blitz either, it could be Grischuk, or Naka the B O M B *

WOA 15 years old Firouzja is Number #3 in Bullet in the World, this Kid by the time he reaches 18 years in 3 more years, he will be a menace to the top 10 in Classical time control. I would like to see Bullet chess incorporated into this yearly event ==>

I didn't want magnus to come first. But i see he did now.
So he still feels great and would think he only had a short bad spell because he was too relaxed and frozen shortly after becoming world champion vs nakamura.

Magnus deserves to be first, he is simply the best Blitz player in the world, besides being the best Classical or standard player too, but I would like in the future for them to include Bullet chess too. There is no commentary since those games are too fast for anybody besides the players to analyse or say something smart about the moves played by both players. :shock:

It would be more interesting to see him struggle and have to prove himself again, not just sit on it till old age.
Like this, he'll just bow out suddenly and do something else, and he'll say he wanted to step aside.

He did struggled and almost lost on this position, his opponent made a slight move order blunder and played h5, instead of playing pawn to f8= Queen then after Rook take Queen King take Rook then after his king advances to e5, all that he had to do was to play his King to g7 and secure a Win.
