  1. Tania needs to talk a bit more chill, Katja needs to come back at the table. Where’s jovanka?

  2. Was really nice of Fabi to blunder 3 games to Magnus

  3. Commentary = eval bar shrieking.. Layout is abysmal, it's not sports ball we don't need faces we need big boards.. Also format is terrible armageddon is coin flip chess.

  4. Stop saying that Carlsen is the greatest player of all time. He is losing so many games ! And he is not only losing, he is being crushed ! Fischer is by far the greatest player of all time ! He was very seldom losing. He was winning ! Carlsen would have been crushed by Fischer !

  5. So nice of the greatest chess player to let magnus speak. Gotham is so humble.

  6. Stop saying other than Magnus is the Greatest of all time, like Fischer was best for just a second, and the number of fantastic games Magnus has played goes so far away from anyone else.

  7. Who won in game 3 Fabi or Magnus I know they were tied a game a piece or was it a draw ? Did they play an Armeggedon game yet ?

  8. This super grandmasters are unbelievable, the fact they were given a chess study and majority of them said "aah i know that one", just reveals the kind of work they did to reach this level, there is over 90,000 chess studies out there, this guys have probably gone all of them more than once, if you want to be on par with this guys, atleast go through all those endgame studies, and thats just the base, i have those studies in pgn, atleast now i know what I'm going to work on in 2024

  9. Love Canty's energy, he's always so pumped and positive

  10. so awesome gamesπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³

  11. I wish the board was larger. I dont need to see them at a table

  12. Wesley become like mikhail Tal genius
