  1. good team, good balance of human and machine analysis (humans speaking first, machines with the last word of course… – good choice). All commentators were very fine, all with very intelligent contributions. Keep up the good work. Thanks.

  2. Why Shevchenko’s flag isn’t Ukrainian?

  3. every time the yasser guy trying to pick some fancy word the player already play 100 moves 😶

  4. Two impressive things regarding last game. It's impressive how he botched totally winning game. Then it's impressive how he defended difficult endgame and avoided loss

  5. Congratulations Magnus! Lagrave was also claiming some expensive champagne at the end.Wesley got stuck in the middle of the traffic.

  6. Hey Yasser.
    Can you stop calling him Maggie ffs?

  7. Magnus was just giving headstart to others in first 3 days and still won.. 😂😂😂 wow what a GOAT

  8. Great tournament. Fantastic chemistry between comentators. Good times to be alive.

  9. how dare you put magnus 2nd in the thumbnail are you dumb?

  10. I like the analysis of Var, a refreshing improvement after the cockiness of the guy he replaces

  11. That Magnus guy is pretty good. I think he can be world champion some day.

  12. I love to see Yasser Seirawan explaining the games. He Indeed is the Bob Ross of Chess.
    Always good Vibes to you Yasser. Following you since "Chess Master" game tutorial.

  13. Thank you for a great few days of chess 🫶🏼

  14. Congrats to GM Magnus Carlsen the only one able to do such a performance … i want to thank the whole crew in Saint-Louis also In Warsaw .. you guys are doing a great job to let us learn and enjoy this wonderful game ..

  15. Great chess commentary, but, Yasser: please no "Richie", no "Maggie".
