  1. Can't see the board, at least put up a heads up display.

  2. Can someone explain why Sahakyan surrendered?

  5. Sagar Bhai ,where is ur live commentary
    Please update about our indian talents ๐Ÿ™ please sir

  6. Ter gave it his all and you can see the agony with the post game conversation

  7. I love how Magnus casually talk with his opponent after the game, giving him advices

  8. There's some great elegance and calmness in the way Magnus moves his pieces and presses the clock. Just mesmerizing.

  9. Look at Hikaru's reaction after the game ended lol hahaha

  10. When i am watching chess, i see only ther expressions, not the pieces

  11. Just again a waste 12min video by not adding the 2D video

  12. The poise with which Magnus plays amazes me every time! G.O.A.T

  13. 3:10 many people have complained online about how this move is possible.
    Actually is a legal move in chess

  14. We see now how chess can be intimadating when the opponent is not only the strongest player in the world but in the same time look alike Reacher.
    Magnus intensity.

  15. It's wonderful to see Magnus dabbling in the French (he used it against Naka a few days back). First tier chess has not really had a passionate French advocate since Korchnoi, so this is pleasing to see. Not that I think he'll be using it to the extent that Korchnoi did obviously, but the French is still popular at the club and Swiss level, and French players will get a boost out of the main man using it, however selectively.

  16. Magnus played unbelievable blunders in this game. The transformation of chess into ''bullet'' games is just sad

  17. I have caught that Blanco has done wrong, look at the time 3:11… (pawn)

  18. who the fck breathes like that gawh damn
