  1. Someone tell Peter to add the 3 lines option to Lichess! A few times where they've wanted to know if the move was an only move and that is a good feature

  2. You can feel the big difference between Peter and other analysts before him. His predecessors were "computer slaves" 99% of time

  3. I like Peter but he should be at the desk with Yasser. He looks uncomfortable standing up there with the engine. Tania isn't my favorite commentator.

  4. so..when Westley put his glasses on…game over!! like the old watch thingy

  5. Finally the saint Louis chess club gets it right by bringing sachdev in. She’s the best

  6. Pretty annoying that Peter won’t have the engine on.

  7. Does anyone find the Indian woman unnecessarily loud? You know like she feels like she is irrelevant or something? Or she has something to prove? This could be seen as quite rude to some people, especially when somebody of Yasser's status is next to her.

  8. Peter on the board is really instructive.

  9. Is it necessary tanya is commentator at this level??

  10. Having a strong GM like Svidler in the commentary is such a pleasure to heard and learn from.

  11. Please stop using engine all the time. We have three great players there. Let them make the analysis.
