GM Alexander Fier – Robert Dubrovin, French defense, Blitz chess
The French Defence is a chess opening characterised by the moves:

1. e4 e6

This is most commonly followed by 2.d4 d5, with Black intending …c5 at a later stage, attacking White’s centre and gaining space on the queenside. White has extra space in the centre and on the kingside and often plays for a breakthrough with f4–f5. The French has a reputation for solidity and resilience, although some lines such as the Winawer Variation can lead to sharp complications. Black’s position is often somewhat cramped in the early game; in particular, the pawn on e6 can impede the development of the bishop on c8.

  1. I have another Dubrovin match over here on my channel for all interested. Strong player.

  2. Arrumou uma água, Fier… Isso aí.

  3. He couldnt find a place to put his arms during all game. What a useless table

  4. Almost looked effortless by black. Nice draw.

  5. He doesn't have any chess' title but he draw with a GM, that's so nice

  6. At 8:42 guy on the right should have played rook to C8 the king only had one square to move and then he could fork the king and rook winning a rook. It was end game and time was low but I'm only a 1200 and I seen this nice move

  7. Fascinating…I usually blunder on move 1, just to speed things up…

  8. Si tiene tanta tos, es posible detener el reloj para que vaya afuera, tosa y regrese? Que mala costumbre entre los ajedrecistas, parece que van a estos eventos a toser.

  9. Jajajajajajajaja el GM con negras salió rápido, estaba era asustado !!!! por esa tos crónica del GM con blancas.

  10. I have never seen a game where Fier doesn't keep coughing!

  11. Thiën kunt good chess
