  1. I hope they get a better synergy commentator than benjamin next match. I don't think he and Hansen go well together. A lot of the commentary conversions between them was forced and didn't feel natural at all.

  2. Where can I see Hikaru's own stream of this? I've subscribed with Prime to switch. Looks like a ghost town lately. I've looked at kick, looked at youtube… cannot find anywhere..???

  3. Hikaru is better than Magnus at speed chess. (I think Hikaru is a betting favorite over Magnus?). That's all that needs to be said. It's amazing to have Magnus and Hikaru, Nepo, So and Fabi and also all the really young players. Great time to watch chess, especially since all the best players are playing constantly.

  4. 44:00 i would feel insulted if the commentators are already predicting the finals for my opponent
