Candidates Day Eleven: Hyper-Bullet, the Breakfast of Champions

I am actually looking forward to a Carlsen - Nepo rematch (if it happens). Quite a way to go!

Bad preparation by Alireza Firouzja.
He needs to work on his emotionally intelligence.
I do too!
Chess can be addictive and needs to be controlled, there is a fine balance.
He should work on his well being (perhaps play a music instrument) and exercise between rounds. He needs a coach mentor. I will not preach too much, as I've made my own mistakes. This is history now, so there is a stamp on this event. He needs to work on preventing it being a recurring event. I recommend Alain De Botton, the School of life, his book consolations of philosophy should cover it. Visualise, by writing out the event on a piece of paper and releasing it down a river, whilst listening to pianist Yiruma, (이루마) - River Flows in You, top Korean musician.

I think lichess should reconsider the public access to some personal lichess activities. Whereas alirezas decision seems questionable I wonder what implications it has that this is immediately available to the public.

Maybe a simple option would be to officially allow two accounts per player - one Bering the public one and another one where he goes incognito

To FM FlinkerFreddy, it is better it is in the public domain. Now Alireza Firouzja can find the support he needs. The International Chess Federation (FIDE) is the governing body of the sport of chess, and should support the players well being. Robert Bobby Fischer had no support, let us not repeat history, and learn from our mistakes. I call out Nigel Short to raise this event and issue at the next FIDE Board meeting.

The Lichess Tos says " In select and special circumstances, a user may have multiple accounts (see our Fairplay & Community Guidelines for more information)."

A titled player that wants an "incognito" account would be completely ok.

Even on other chess sites it was written that he played. So not only lichess told the audience he played. He did not play on an anonymous account, so he did not care people know he is playing. I think the titled players are allowed multiple accounts.
