  1. I'm not very familiar with competitive chess – are most of the champions younger?

  5. I am proud of India. Well played Vishwanathan Anand.😄😄

  6. You can't give perpetual checks from there. King can escape.

  7. Fedosev did not resign, he ran out of time.
    Congrats Anand. Now go and win the blitz as well.

  8. whatever he is still well known player in chess history.

  9. Proud of my India..well done vishy.

  10. Anand is a legendary player..i m proud that i m from his country india…

  11. Anand is a legendary player..i m proud that i m from his country india…

  12. Yo ! Our INDIAN 🐅 TIGER RULES😁😁😁

  13. The tiger is alive now congratulations to vishwanathan Anand

  14. If there's one true come back king in professional chess it's anand. His ability to rebuild from the absolute lows is amazing.

  15. Not even Victor Korchnoi was stronger at 48 years old.

  16. congrats to Anand for winning Rapid Chess Championship 2017

  17. Suren !how can i become a strong player likes these peoples ?

  18. What a way to end 2017… Congratulations Vishy 🙂

  19. What a way to end 2017… Congratulations Vishy 🙂

  20. wow man. that's impressive of anand.. 48 ain't no spring chicken!

  21. Anand had no trouble with his time at all. That shows the depth of his expertise in the opening. Fedoseev, on the other hand, was struggling to find a way to enter complications at the opening stage without ending up a worse position.

  22. Plz add final of world rapid 2017 played between Anand and carlsen

  23. Gary kasparov takes 10 times more time than u. Rapid is most chellenging chess. No one can stay focused and determined like u Anand. Also u from a nation where very few play it.

  24. Just proud to be Indian…..I have never seen such a calm mind in deadly situations

  25. I don't think there's perpetual check at the end for white. White is losing after black queen jumps back to blocks checks.

  26. Anand, though, makes tiny inaccuracies, but, finally manages to beat opponents younger than him, and this is simply spectacular

  27. Great to know, Suren Sir, you have made a video on the Legendary Indian chess player winning the World Rapid Championship.

    He's legendary, because, he made chess famous in India
    I really like his style of play. Even in 2019, defeating Anand is not easy job.

  28. Suren Sir, did you notice, that in this game, even after allowing all possible counterplay by white, black still came on top.

    Just a fantastic game by Vishy Anand to win World Rapid Championship.

    Probably, many generations of chess players will be proud of this game by Anand.
