Carlsen vs. Firouzja’s Banter Blitz Cup Side-by-Side

16-year-old Alireza Firouzja’s stunning 8.5:7.5 victory over Magnus Carlsen in the Banter Blitz Cup final was one of the chess highlights of recent years, made all the better by the fact that both players commentated live on their moves. Now all 16 games have been released in a side-by-side format that combines both videos, not with the players speaking over each other but one after the other. It’s the perfect way to get both perspectives on the games, and whether you’ve watched the match already or not you’re in for a treat!
