  1. Vishy is my favourite player to watch on the board, he's so composed and knows all the players idea's, not many players would push their pawn so early in the game but he knew they were heading for rooks at the end. And he is always ready to explain to the younger guys what they did wrong, what a wonderful human being

  2. When you don't know anything about this game ..but still you have a smile on face…..🔥🔥🔥

  3. I love how Anand offers to analyze the game after every game even at this age. This shows his love for chess.

  4. G5 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  5. better title: Not all rook engames are drawn

  6. Como puede un GM hacer un blunder tan gigantesco?

  7. 10:33 to 10:38 those multiple stares 😀 …. position mein kuch rakha hai kya aur khelne ke liye?

  8. The camera angle would be better in a straight-on side view, like previous videos. It's a bit confusing seeing the physical board with white at the top of the screen, and the diagram board with white at the bottom of the screen. Don't understand why you changed things, "improving" them. Everyone liked them the way they were.

  9. Can anybody tell me, is it a draw, or that guy resigned?

  10. So impressive that Vishy is over 50 and still playing at the elite level!

  11. @ 09:09
    Alex – Rf1
    Vishy -Kh2
    Alex -if Rf5 to RF2 wont it mate can any one explain???

  12. Jb ye sir jeet jate h to samjhane baith jate h pr jb haar jate h to uth k nikal jate h

  13. Still he had pawns…he could have tried to make queen till the end. He resigned early

  14. That was some serious disrespect playing on a rook down.

  15. How chess prodigies of other countries might be trying to work the way Anand Sir has been for the past 37 years. (I believe every chess enthusiast overcthe globe must be fascinated by this living legend.

  16. Браво Вишванатан Ананд!

  17. Rea5 correct move instead he played Rf5

  18. I dont know how come Alexander made so many mistakes

  19. Anand is well-known for his endgame skills specially applying the principle of two weaknesses

  20. Can someone please explain why did Black resign?

  21. Does anyone know why the Clock is not on the Right side of Black? Donchecko is Right Handed.
