  1. "You were the better player"
    And arjun's nod what a felling man what a feeling….

  2. Levon is too wholesome dude, I clapped at home after watching this. What a legend ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

  3. Who won?? I just do not underatand at the end…P.S. i am noob

  4. Does levon has joints disease or something like that ??

  5. It's interesting to see if he wins he will discuss the game and say you were better and if it's draw or lose just move away. Using Psychology to beat a inexperienced player that shows what Arjun is capable of. Aronian body language seems to be more agressive and intimidating with his fast play.

  6. I always love the way Levon smiles. A truly sincere and down to Earth person.

  7. Levon is such a gentleman.
    Praising of someone is a great virtue which can be found in great man's behaviour.

  8. Why does levon has 5 mins and arjun has 4?

  9. Thanksโค for also showing the board

  10. Such a good interaction between the two players at the end. Big Hearted Levon and Humble Arjun!

    Tata Steel Chess OP!

  11. I don't understand how could you watch this match as audience because audience can only see their faces that shows no emotions,,,

  12. " Arjun is mentally very strong but physically he's not that strong . Only reason he didn't won the second cup coz he can't pick-up two cups at same time". – LEVON
    ( What a guy man โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ)

  13. The game discussion at the end was epic. Also Levon not hesitating a bit to appreciate arjun is commendable.

  15. India has so many up and coming stars. Great performance Arjun!

  16. ChessBase รndia , best angles vรญdeos !
    Perfect !!!

  17. Honestly, I may not be a GM but I believe this position can be defended by black
    black Rb8, white Rg8, black Qb6 and that is the end of the treat; only exchange of pieces will happen but not checkmate. PLEASE anyone disprove this theory, I will be happy to learn

  18. Couldn't black use rook or queen for defence?๐Ÿค”

  19. Levon should go to see Neurologist after this match…lol

  20. Levon starts the game aaja beta folding cuffs! He wins half the battle before starting only.

  21. Why all players take back their hands to their normal resting position after pressing the clock when they know time is less and they have to keep pressing it again and again

  22. Vishy anand, Levon aronian ,Artemiev….I admire these three โค๏ธโค๏ธ

  23. can somebody explain why Rrjuns clock is 4 while Levon is 5?

  24. Arjun who is student of finegold? He sure has come a long way

  25. I think it's the longest talk after the match in the history of chess ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

  26. Qd6+ Ka8 Qc6+ ??????????? Aronian has nuub

  27. Instead of Qd7, Aronian could have also played Qc6+! (Rxc6 then Rg8 mate) kb8 then Qb7 mate!

  28. Levon is simply a gentleman …cant imagine such a brilliant mind and such a nice character!

  29. It is very rare to listen after match communication, very nice to listen

  30. Aronian's torso and neck movement as always. Kind of a chess break dance.

  31. why does aronian have `1 minute more i am new could anyone explain

  32. Can anyone please explain me why there is initial time difference?
