  1. Poor game by Vishy's standards
    Nakamura has annoyed him a lot with the English in the past

  2. 01:47 , Sach bolo Sagar bhai, you were going to say "Thats all the World champion needs". Magnus really is the peoples champion! Love Vishy too <3

  3. Why didn't vishy bring his king closer to that passed a pawn?

  4. 🄼🅁 𝖕𝖆𝖗𝖎𝖒𝖆𝖑 𝖍𝖊𝖗𝖊 says:

    Sagar bhai…
    Ye nam3 dalke.. arrow dikhani ki jarurat nhi hai😂
    Sab pahchante hi hai😂😂😂😂

  5. Thanks Sagar for covering the games nice one

  6. Maturity is when you prefer @chessbaseindia over agadmator

  7. I wish we could know what they talk about after the match. I'd love to hear their convo.

  8. يا إلهي …مازال الأسطورة أناند غير قادر على هزيمة كارلسن منذ سنوات 😅…كارلسن معادلة صعبة للغاية

  9. That is why he is Magnus Carlsen … only he can casually and confidently convert small advantages to victories in endgames despite facing brilliant accurate defence from a super GM like Vishy !!!

  10. Amazing how perfect Carlsen has played

  11. James Canty is a disgrace for NOT dressing up for the occasion. Nobody wants to see his ashy knees! TECH MAHINDRA should pay him LESS for NOT wearing proper attire.

  12. So lucky to witness these two legends having at eachother again!

  13. Two time Vishay anand face Magnus in world chess championships and many other games but lost vishay is good player but Magnus Can be compared with Magnus

  14. Thanks for the labels in the thumbnail, was having trouble telling who was who

  15. Carlsen tem jogado xadrez de sacanagem, ja nao ta com aquele animo, ja provou tudo e um pouco mais, parece que ainda joga pra satisfazer alguns fans, agora quer curtir outras coisas, ate mesmo poker..

  16. I am not even from India, but vishy is such a lovely person ♟️

  17. Vishi is a old beast… Or beast but old

  18. 10 world championship winners in a single frame

  19. Why is there FM sort of sound in the Background , please fix

  20. Estoy seguro que si Anand lo reta a jugar un match le gana

  21. 2 pawn down against Magnus 💀
    You have chosen loss..

  22. so weird hearing norwegian grandmaster. wierder not hearing world champ. damn!
