Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 {The Rossolimo System versus the Sicilian Defense. This is GM Robert "Bobby" Fischer other weapon versus the Sicilian Defense.} Nf6 4. Nc3 Nd4 {This move strikes the bishop at b5. It's getting complicated at move 4 only.} 5. e5 {See what i mean...} Nxb5 6. Nxb5 Nd5 7. O-O {Now that white king is castled, its ready to rumble!!!} a6 8. c4 {This kid has too much fire power on his wits.} Nb4 9. Nc3 d6 10. d4 {GM Firouzja does not hesitate to execute unconventional moves, always based it on calculation and guts.} cxd4 11. Qxd4 {Look at that!! there is obvious fork at c2, but he has something hiding on his sleeves (idiomatic expression).} Nc2 12. Qe4 Nxa1 {I remember one of his games when he sacrificed his rook too... check this link: https:// memorychisel.com/wesley-eliminated/} 13. Bf4 {GM Firouzja is a strategic planner. It is reasonable by the dictate of the position when black's king still at the center, a must for white to create imbalances to achieve advantage.} Be6 14.

Nf7+) 26. Nxe5+) 25. Bxd6 Bxd6 26. Qe4+ Kf7 27. Qd5+ Kg6 28. g3 {Placing the king safe from back rank mate and the move Bh2 check taking the queen at d5.} h6 {Now: lets analyze the position. 1. Same count of pawns 2. White's pieces are well placed. 3. Black king is still exposed.} 29. Rd1 Re8 30. Nf3 Re6 31. Nh4+ Kh7 32. Qd3+ {Black resigned due to Nf5 or if g6 then Qg6...} 1-0
