  1. πŸ”₯ Tania ROCK 🀘

  2. Super duper commentators, and yes Mr Hess. BAN THE DRAW OFFER!

  3. You can’t party and be world champion, there are so many good players available now ready to eat your lunch!

  4. 25:00 'technical difficulties' translation: human screwups – 20 minutes worth right at the start. How long have you had to prepare for this? Do your job. Your negligence leaves the commentators (and audience) hanging. Someone should be fired.

  5. 43:35 Bringing up the analysis board, giving commentator control over it… the most basic, most needed stuff. Why isn't this smooth at this point? Prediction: the world will perish from bad design by mediocre minds.

  6. mashala bache ha πŸ˜€ πŸ’šπŸ€β€

  7. U can see magnus player chess I his waiting time from seeing magnus room

  8. Rather amateurish to sort standings only by points earned – it's misleading. Is it that hard to display rounds completed as well, and sort by points / rounds?

  9. 5:09:30 once again, incompetence in the graphics leaving commentators and viewers hanging….

  10. this was a great Monday. tania and hess super commentary

  11. Did Ding withdraw last minute? He's in the title but isn't in the event it looks like

  12. Ivan saric handed magnus an ass whopping

  13. Someone said Ding wasn't playing well so he I guess quit.

  14. 6:16:00 from here on out, deez knights (or knight) of Magnus was just spectacular.

  15. 6:24:57 this is what I want Magnus and Hikaru flagging battle in the previous CCT be like. Instead Magnus just mouseslip for no reason.

  16. Wish I knew how many I've had. I can only analyze 1 game per day as a non premium member. πŸ™

  17. Oh Tania,I've missed your mad screams so much with these boring and calm Judit and Ivanka

  18. Talking like she knows Magnus was out partying… maybe got that "U up?" text. lol.

  19. More Tania – less Jovanka!
    Tania has way better insights and communication skills
