  1. Speed format ain't Gukesh's cup of tea but i am happy he is not afraid to participate in these events regardless of the result.

  2. too many mistakes, not proper chess. Bring back classical. Magnus needs to retire.

  3. I only have one question now: where is the meme (GIF) of Carlsen's jump xD

  4. Good idea to focus on one game at a time

  5. Magnus has been fighting to catch up Wei Yi for sometime. I believe Magnus will catch up to Wei Yi and overtake him. Magnus will win the tournament.

  6. I don’t understand removing the eval bar during the scrambles.

  7. I wonder in which decade rapid and blitz chess will be presented properly, and the game given its due respect it deserves

  8. Flukesh should give his WCC ticket to Wei Yi.

  9. Good day! Warm greetings from the city of Santa Monica, CA, USA! Let’s go Praggnanandhaa!

  10. People who have started watching chess in pandemic need to understand first difference between classical/ rapid/ blitz first .

    People in history who are always remembered are all classical chess world champions. Nobody remeber rapid / blitz champions.
    So calm your horses down and stop abusing. Even the goat is on no 2 right now. I mean people in comments are so idiot who were saying we yi > magnus . Even we yi will laugh on that.
    The best and real chess is classical

  11. People in these comments need to grow up and not fight over chess players 😭💀 y’all so mad at each other th

  12. Gukesh showing that he has what it takes to be World Champ 😊

  13. The moderation, commentary, and presentation were top-notch in this broadcast. You assembled a great team for this match, SLCC. Thank you for not making every move an overdramatized superlative. 😉

  15. Commentators are sucks. If I see this couple again wouldn't hesitate to shut this channel down

  16. I know there isn't enough time to show the highlights slowly but the blinding speed of these highlight reviews is just ridiculous.

  17. Great show! Looking forward to tomorrow. The tone, the pacing, everything is so delicate and pleasant. Thank you for this!

  18. Superb covering by Saint Louis Chess Club. I enjoyed it very much

  19. What is going on with Wei Yei? I don't think I have ever seen play this well for this long. Just destroying all his opponents. I guess he's been working hard on his game. I always knew he had a lot of talent, to say the least. Hopefully it continues after this tournament.

  20. If Anish can avoid finishing last, it would be a great achievement for him.

  21. 2.42 mostraban el tablero de Magnus cuando se analizaba el tablero de Wei YI

  22. 2:47 la sombre de Erigaisi es notorio, no deja ver la posicion.
