  1. Lol Sagar tried to do outro like Samay 😂😂

  2. Samay copyright dedo, both intro and outro copied from you 😂😂😂❤

  3. What a fantastic tournament this has been, what a fantastic line-up and three of the winners being from India took away the cake! I love the fact that the women's event not only got the same prize money, but was also covered well. It was nice to see Vishy sir joining in for the commentary, and being so relaxed and fun. I'll reiterate that Tania is one of the best in the business right now, and Sagar and her made an incredible commentary team. And thanks to team CBI, for the fabulous coverage, and for all that you do! ❤

  4. proud of our youngsters 🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳….. Will miss this duo untill the next year…..tania ma'am a pro in hosting 🦁 also…..#justiceforblueshirtguy 🤣

  5. Great Event 🔥🔥
    Vaishali, Nihal, Arjun OP ❤️❤️❤️

  6. Vidit finishing ahead of Prag , Nihal, and Gukesh both in Rapid and Blitz. speaks volumes of how much his speed chess has improved.

  7. pragg does not play well in such intensive events, where so many matches are played i think…may be he lacks stamina…

  8. Congrats to Nihal, Vaishali & Arjun…amazing performance! Also thank you Sagar & Tania…epic duo !!

  9. Next time Carlsen, Nepo and Alireza should be here 👍👍

  10. Intro and outro both inspired by the man, the myth, the legend, the best of best, the ever charming, the man who has 220 IQ 👑Samay raina🤴(THE SUPREME LEADER) 🛐 love you samay ❤️

  11. Congratulations Arjun. 👏🥳 Great event . Good organization. And thanks CBI to bringing the live entertainment. You guys are the best ❤️❤️👏✨

  12. Why all the women are all in a uniform and not the men?

  13. Why that guy watching tania constantly when she was talking 😂😂😂😂😂😂

  14. @3:20:35 vidit praising the grace of his guru…
    Chess is a small part but with gurus grace you can win so much more 🙂

  15. Congo Arjun🔥🔥❤❤Also well played Vidit Who seems to have Really improved his Speed chess👍. Nihal, Gukesh and Pragg did show character in some great Games

  16. Isn't giving same amount of money as given to higher rated players to those women competing at a lower level of rating not an insult to merit? Let the women too without any discrimination be allowed to compete with high rated players and win same prize for proving their merit. In the name of equality why should quality and merit be compromised? Therefore take a dislike from my side Tata Steel.

  17. You guys are awesome..you have taken chess broadcasting to a different level in India…learnt a lot during last couple of days… CBI op and Vishy op ❤

  18. Y taniya dance while speak
    Stand straight and speak

  19. It was really great to experience it live! Kudos to Arjun for winning the blitz section and also to other great players who displayed a wonderful game of chess over the board!!

  20. It’s safe to say now that Arjun is the strongest active Indian player if you club all the formats. At such a young age, the lad wins it all .

  21. @3:34:01 – this is the humility and glory of our culture – humbling yourself before the guru!

  22. Excellent tournament excellent commentry. Arjun is the new beast of chess.

  23. Congrats to Arjun and Nihal!
    Loved the commentary by Sagar and Tania❤️

  24. Fantastic broadcast of a fantastic tournament. Thanks to all involved!
    P-.S. Commentary team was simply OP. I have been never seen such chemistry between two commentators as that between Sagaar and Tania. Keep up the good work!

  25. Tanya now a super international hosting Anchor. The questions he asked to The CEO of Tata Steel Group T. Natarajan, is very accurate, especially about the Gender Equality in Tata Steel Group relating from chess to Manufacturing Industry is amazing..

  26. GM, Master of Ceremonies, Tania. None, as observed in other sports will be able to take your place as MC bcoz you are truly a good, passionate chess player & on top of that an IM. You have the technical knowledge &:gift of the gab when it comes to dwelling on Chess if the need arises. That's the plus. Keep going

  27. A great, unique tournament & the icing on the cake; three Indians winning the 1st prize. Congratulations 👏 to all of them. The Indian Chess juggernaut is on the roll

  28. All women chess players dressed in Sarees with B&W squares & wearing bindis. Wow man!! This is out of the box 👏👍❤️
