  1. Thanks for posting this. I missed the games today because of the weird relationship to Kasparov chess. I'm not interested in twitch.

  2. you guys are missing out a lot of viewers by just streaming on twitch.
    i hope u guys stream on both platforms

  3. What happened to the camera quality? I feel like I'm watching in this the 90s…

  4. I'm just not interested in Twitch. At all. It reminds me of the high school quad, now digitalized. I'm betting you're going to lose a lot of viewers.

  5. Richard Rapport looking like SCH right now 💪🏽 🇫🇷

  6. 4:25:20 – yes cough*, thank you *cough It must be the weather factor. lol

  7. 1:09:27 Way more intense than online bullet/blitz (Firouzja – So)
    1:23:54 Svidler's style of moving the pieces looks interesting (Svidler – MVL, queen & rook vs. queen& lots of pawns endgame)

  8. just horrible commentary….Ashley….never stops trying to make himself the focus…..Yasser…fed up with it….both guys talking over each other disregarding the audience …….just a bad show…..much to irritating to watch…worse to listen to…..

  9. The problem is that the most important moments over the board, you change the cameras, we want to see the players, not the engines

  10. Can anyone comment about the Indian timings of the event. Thanks 🙂

  11. Coverage on Paris Grand ChessTour with Maurice Ashley and Yasser Seirawan is much better than three people competing against each other.
    Big improvement!

  12. Glad to hear that Aronian has found love again, although of course he will always have his previous wife in his heart forever! 🙏

  13. Its time for Svidler to dig deep and win a tournament. BTW, its the 19th and where is Day 2 from SLCC?

  14. I already love Almira 😍. Man she's brilliant.

  15. Maurice is the best commentator and Yasser the best entertainer .

  16. cant decide who is my favorite commentator. love it! tyvm<3

  17. I do appreciate the great production value. I guess you get used to the constant sceaming yelling, and generally overstating things.

  18. I love how they cover this like other competitive sports with replays on the big touch screen

  19. Maurice STOP shouting man and stop commentating like its a fast n furious sporting event, Its Chess for god sake. Im off to take pain killers for my headache.
