  1. 1:54:12 I was litereally like wait that's a Skewer, right? I was really having to think about the actual definition of Skewer and Pin. As soon as I settled on Skewer I hear Danya realize it's actually a Skewer. Great stuff.

  2. This is awesome ! Please try to say the opening name if join game midway

  3. Live Board.
    Please, if there is a god, please. I really want to watch this.

  4. Anish Giri absolutely destroying everyone

  5. It’s like if it’s written in their contract they have to talk or shout all the time, not to leave even a single second of silence in the whole stream.

  6. I absolutely can not believe vidit in his second game against Amin didn’t play Kg1 wtf is e4?

  7. Arjun, you will do better eventually for sure 👍

  8. Terrific commentary, at a high level. Two suggestions: First, that the commentators refrain from talking constantly; their job is not to talk and to say everything that occurs to them, but to comment. Also, the commentators sometimes get excited during a time scramble and start to shout out moves that are better than those played, even talking over each other; it would be better not to do this. Still, remarkably good commentary!

  9. These two hosts are the best there is !!!

  10. 1:20:45 The Kasparov impression is fantastic. Helps that he's also Ukranian and Azerbaijani from his parents so he definitely knows the nuances of the accent.
