  1. Akobian is great at this. Gives just the right amount of info about the position and does it quickly.

  2. Yasser is such a great commentator. It's just soothing to the ears having him analyse the game.

  3. 1. i was critical of this commentary team in the last tournament but Varuzhan and Paikidze have improved a lot these last few weeks. It's good to see.
    2. Magnus looks like hans lmao idk who ended who's career

  4. Already Anish is keeping up with Magnus! Well done Giri!!

  5. I dont predict Magnus great succes with that haircut🤣. Color it grey and Id cast him as Luchenko in "The Queensgambit"

  6. 6:00 Magnus is also:
    Grand chess tour winner
    World rapid and blitz champion

  7. 16:48 Magnus would rather relax and play interesting entertaining chess than grub out something correct and boring. He's like a grand king bestowing largess on his peers and the people out of his vast resources. Polish defense in Warsaw – what a showman. 🙂

  8. Магнус задвинул 😂

  9. No love for the noobs. Why do you hate the eval bar so much? No one in St Louis thought to keep it on the screen?

  10. I like the GM who does the analysis with engine he seems to be a nice guy

  11. Y r cannon fodder Kirilenko and Deac there?
