  1. 40 seconds late? I get upset at work when I'm waiting an hour for the next shift to show up. God bless only 40 seconds

  2. I’m new to chess, can someone explain how the end works ? I know the game is over when the king is checked. Was that the case here ? Looked like he still could have made some moves

  3. Could someone explain to me why in 8:39 black doesn’t take the pawn in g4 and follows up with the bishop?

  4. Unfortunately I can’t appreciate how good this game was because I don’t understand the strategy of Chess very much

  5. That other guy was scared that’s why he lost when you’re playing a grandmaster such as Carlson you must be very aggressive and deliberate with your moves he was afraid of losing and he lost

  6. You are playing well but correct your position

  7. I don’t understand why the timer keeps Going please explain

  8. im a bit out of the loop with everything .. but why is everyone so tense

  9. as a beginner i hate the most in this video and others the last part, why did he loss? , what happened?, Why did he give up?

  10. I didn’t see the check mate in this game how did it end the way it did?

  11. Bro i don't even know how chess works but it's so exciting to watch because u never know what they gonna do next or when a reaction comes.

  12. It's funny to see that the cameras are surrounding only one table and there are so many others.

  13. Let's hope the new worlds best doesn't go insane like the last guy

  14. Dude comes in late everytime, and then just sits there to run out the clock on the very first moves.

  15. Wait, that wasnt a checkmate. Why did he give up?

  16. Magnus wait nearly I will coming to play with you .. Then I will see you letter

  17. Can someone more intelligent than me explain, why he gave up??

  18. magnus play white but in the oppening he is pressured assured how is that?

  19. Bro choked and had to give up. Damn. But this was an interesting game. I learned some new stuff 🫡🔥

  20. I'm a rookie, but if the time weren't a problem, moving the Queen to C7 wouldn't have prevented a check mate?

  21. Firouzja went ahead and started the clock, what a b-move. Magnus Carlen was late this year to the 2023 World Blitz Championship, but his opponent asked to not start the clock until he arrived. The arbiters still went ahead and started the clock. Magnus had like 30 seconds and still won. But still, I had immense respect for Magnus' opponent across the board, knowing that it's Magnus Carlen he is playing and yet he wanted no advantage.

  22. Magnus is the type of guy that would read the terms and conditions, and click “I disagree”
