  1. Sounds like they're playing in a laundromat….

  2. 7:48 Jobava pointed out after the game that he could held a draw by Kb3-c4-b3-c4-… Instead he moved his knight and let Carlsen a chance.

    9:54 Here we see him pointing it out

  3. Wow what a beautiful move. As soon as he made it the game was over. Take the bishop and the pawn gets to queen or take the pawn and the bishop destroys the backline which also leads to pawns turning to queens.

  4. I don’t play chess nor understand it but this was cool.

  5. A 8: 22 il met le fou devant le roi et le roi ne prend pas le fou
    J’ai rien compris !!!
    Ah oui bravo il perdait un coup et magnus récupéré la reine

  6. They don't make eye contact…even when the game is over. it's annoying or something.

  7. Not only Bb4 but also after Nc3 a2. That is the move Jobava missed before Bb4 was played.

  8. Magnus made a mistake with the Bishop beside the Queen. The other dude missed it. Should have locked it with a rook, then exploit with the Knight.

  9. Brilliant! The suspense is unreal and what a killer move, like a surgeon welding a scalpel… amazing.

  10. What happened… finally?!! Why did they shake hands?

  11. 😂😂😂when you watching the game, you'll notice the timer getting tap harder & harder
    Tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap😂😂😂😂😂

  12. Can someone tell me please why did Jobava not take Carlsen's bishop at 8.10 when he has the chance?

  13. That was a knuckle crack if ever I heard one one from the guy at the top table at 3:48

  14. Love the facial expression and body language during the last handshake.

  15. magnus always looks like he’s going through an existential crisis every time he plays.

  16. Seeing a game of chess without a small board on the side is like watching a performance of Led Zeppelin without a voice.

  17. This Carlsen's bishop must to be at museum after such move…

  18. The way the guy at the other table stares at magnus before the game starts. A huge fan i bet.

  19. Didn't know Stefan Salvatore has a doppelganger that plays Chess.

  20. I’m really impressed that Magnus is able to be in two places at once. True chess master

  21. This was a great game from both players. Well done.

  22. 9:49 Magnus’ “oh well” reaction every time his opponent surrenders is hilarious

  23. I'm new to chess so… What happened!!?? Sm1 please enlighten me, how did it end

  24. People coughing shouldn’t be allowed in these events, or at least sound proof the damn play area.

  25. How is he playing at two tables at once🤣🤣🤣

  26. Why did he agree to draw when he clearly would have won?

  27. I wish they filmed from above or have a digital board.

  28. 8:03
    Magnus: here, eat my bishop
    Jobava: Thank you, ill eat it n… wait

    would Magnus still win IF he was not allowed to EVER twiddle around with the dead carcasses of the opposing armies recently diseased pieces while he thinks?
