  1. Thank you very much for this video. Please upload such type of video with digital board at corner.

  2. En la era moderna del Ajedrez al final solo se rinde el que sabe que va a perder. ¿Quién perdió?
    In the modern era of Chess in the end, only the one who knows that he will lose surrenders. Who lost?

  3. Only the queen can nepo able to move. What a great strategy from Chess master Magnus.


  5. nepo looks so unbothered. Like he is just at home doing his regular things

  6. This is the place where covid – 19 was first founded

  7. Magnus flexes by coming a minute late to the game. What a guy 😂😂

  8. Что Ян сказал Карлсену в конце?

  9. this is so much better than online chess championships

  10. The pre covid days, when a room full of people coughing on each other was considered ok.

  11. Mukanya pada gitu ya ,, tapi mikir 👍👍

  12. Will they be laughing like that during their upcoming world title match later this year as well?

  13. 50:16 Ian be like, “k that’s it, I can’t stand the cough competition anymore”

  14. Chess finals in movies: one spot hanging dramatically over the board, the audience dead silent, the camera dead center.
    Chess finals irl: coincides with the world coughing championship, people walk right by the table, the camera is set up slightly off center so you can't see the players unless they're dead center all the time.

  15. Dude in the white shirt moving differently just play the game and relax pal 😂

  16. Ian likes to take fleeting glances at his opponent when he is not looking. Ding does so but less often.

  17. The threats of both Q-c8 check (if the black Q moves) and Qxf7 (if the black Q does not move to protect f7) cannot be both met. Is this why black resigns? …f6 then Be4 wins.

  18. Why did they invite an audience that all had tuberculosis? If I'd been the World Grand Master I would have just stood up and left. The coughing was out of control.

  19. whole lot of coughing going on in that room

  20. Is it just me or does Nepomniachtchi looks like a World of Warcraft Grand Master rather than a Chess one ?

  21. Toooo boring match. Face expressions Ian make are disgusting

  22. Its funny coz all the comments are just about the people coughing in the background 🤣🤣

  23. 0:44 Who is the guy drinking coffee in front row? Is he also chess player, cause I see him in every match!?!

  24. Great expressions by Ian in the beginning!

  25. what we need is a cough silencer app for those sick old people, nesting all top chess events like flies.
