  1. Irrespective of game results, Arjun always likes to arrange his pieces back. Giri just went off.

  2. Forget the result..How humble Arjun is. Love his attitude

  3. It's so awesome how much attention Arjun gives to Anish after the game. Many players just listen a bit and then walk off, but Arjun is so nice and humble, willing to concentrate on whatever Anish is asking or bringing up without any sign of impatience or desire to hurry it up.

  4. Wow πŸ”₯ Amazing Gameplay by Arjun to defeat Anish !!! What a finish.

  5. Woh they listened and added a 2D board . Thanks Sagar

  6. Arjun is playing at a world class level with white against super GM. If he becomes more solid and gets a few more draws with black . He would've been in much better position

  7. What A Great Game Played By Arjun Ra8 is blunder !!!????

  8. The way players capture pieces OTB always captures my attention. Like this slick pawn-grab by Giri. 5:50

  9. Man!!! Arjun hand gestures are exactly like vishy… exactly !!!!!

  10. Petition to rename Arjun as 40 move prep

  11. I don't understand
    what's the result of this game ?
    cn anyone tell me

  12. Sometimes it's feel Arjun is high of some sortπŸ˜…

  13. Opponents will really be pissed off and feel embarrassed if you don't look at the board most of the time….. arjun not looking at the board really pisses off Anish

  14. Anish is so washed up, probably the vax sauce

  15. The way Arjun is playing, he will be No. 1 in the world soon. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™

  16. I love how Arjun is always open to discuss anything after the game irrespective of the result.

  17. Arjun faced Carlsen, Nepo, Giri, Grischuk, Fedoseev, Artemiev, Mamedyarov, Keymar, MVL,Rapport in this tournament. That is insane. He managed 5th place. Not bad at all. 7 2700+ and 2 2800+

  18. Always looking out the board is a strange habit. How can he concentrate?

  19. Anish is one of the best super gms but he just can't win the big thing.

    Wes, Nakamura, Firouzja, Nepo, Caruana .. them are not #1 but they won some tournaments!

  20. Why did he resign?.. Whatever he plays, next move is a mate with e-pawn or he loses an entire bishop.

  21. It's not easy to defeat anish even with white…. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘. GG.

  22. Where is Arjun vs Abdussatorov (not sure the spelling πŸ˜…) match at Tata Steel 2023 ? That game was epic, wasn't it? πŸ’₯
