  1. 2:54:00 Dammit, you're talking about critical positions you're not showing us! Fire the video display person. We're not all blindfold GMs.

  2. I just want to know what music this is that you guys play during the breaks. I love it lol can’t find any note of it.

  3. 1:28:08 The table base shows this to be an (extremely rare) position which white could win(!) except that it would take more than 50 moves(!). White K and one N chase black K laboriously counterclockwise around the rim of the board, then again to the upper right corner with both knights. Forced pawn moves prevent stalemate. Without the black pawn, of course white cannot force a mate. From NxQ, under best play white requires 56 moves before forcing black to move his pawn. What a game.

  4. Nice to see anish playing great chess again 😂

  5. Magnus looks like a street person? Too many late nights, booze and broads!

  6. Please don't ever compare this balding alcoholic to the Great Hikaru. Glad he is no longer World Champion.

  7. I am so glad to see a Saint Louis production again!
    The WC match production was abysmal – the FIDE producers could learn a lot from you!
