Aryan Tari vs Alireza Firouzja

Lawrence Trent: "Today I'll be looking at the developments at Norway Chess and more concretely the stellar performance by the Iranian phenom Alireza Firouzja. His Black victory vs Aryan Tari in round 6 was reminiscent of how Garry Kasparov used to crush his opponents in the 80s and is a great example of how to harness the initiative and translate it into a winning attack."
