  1. Nihal ,play with me,l am big chess master (WCD),nice person.This is title game,play ❤❤❤

  2. How come white purposely went for an ugly looking double pawn via B x B? What was the catch?

  3. Why do they shake hands before ending the game… I want to know how the game continues and ends.. Why do they have to resign… I want to see checkmates

  4. That's a nice Zugzwang in the end

  5. Why didn’t he queen at last move? Why saving the pawn, he could have moved the rook! What am I missing?

  6. Nihal is very solid and is a phenomenal positional player!!😊

  7. Nihal on his way to become the GOAT 🐐

  8. Can i get chess set as a gift ….sagar…😂😂😂

  9. Thank You ChessBase India for making this available to me!

  10. E ho ky rha h INDIA to bde bde players ko dhul chtara h ajkl

  11. Levon is the most sweetest person when it comes to accepting defeats.

  12. Ke1 and Kf2 🔥🔥🔥 brilliancy of waiting moves

  13. Bro really said, yeah take my knight, take my pawn i don't care. I'm going for queen 😂

  14. Nihal is lower rated than aronian but still wins.. So strange

  15. Why is he not making the queen and get s straightforward path to victory. Why hold the pawn on the seventh rank ?

  16. Nihal looks tiny (in a cute way) compared to all the super gms but outplays them like a champ 👌every time I watch him fight on the board I think of the David-Goliath metaphor 😅

  17. @7:12, the spelling of Initiatives is wrong 😢 (it says “Iniciatives)

  18. Bro nihal shook hands also like he is playing bullet damn!😮

  19. Master tactician NiHAL❤❤.
    Levon coolest guy ❤

  20. my only reason to click on this vid was to see how much aronian moved in his chair.
