  1. 7:16 I have a question
    Why couldn't Hikaru move the castle A5, A8, G8, G7, then get the king out of that position?

  2. Can anyone explain why magnus didn’t play rook to C7 at 6:45?

  3. at 7:08 why did magnus go for a queen trade instead of taking the rook with his queen?

  4. Hikaru likes to look at the sky when thinking !
    Maybe there's a cheat over there 😎😎

  5. I wish chess was commentated on live TV the same way UFC is

  6. 7:05 If Magnus gave the check by placing rook at H8 then he can easily get The queen or if couldn't then ,
    By placing queen on C3 in next move and then by giving check again by rook at H7 and Sacrificing his rook, he can get the Queen

  7. If Hakiru had at least 2 minutes he could have pulled a draw but he had just 8 seconds so he was gonna lose on time anyway so GG

  8. So I watched the whole match just so they can shake hands at the end?

  9. What these jobless audiance watching can they see gameplay from that distance

  10. And they look like the Asian and white version of one another

  11. I might be wrong but on min 7:04. If Magnus does check with the rook, then check with the queen C3, wouldn’t magnus take hikaru’s queen ?

  12. I am surprised Magnus missed a pretty easy win at 7:01. It goes Rh8+ Kg7 Qc3+ Qf6 Rh7+ Kxh7 Qxf6

  13. just one pion could actually decided whos the winner

  14. Legend has it the concession stand sold out of lozenges.

  15. I don't know anything of this Game… But i enjoy to look..,,,. I'm asking myself… Whyyyyyyyyyyy!!!?!?????

  16. this is how chess matches should be filmed, i see too much bad quality cam setups that cant even see the board followed by about 13 virtual chessboards on the screen for analysis

  17. तुम ऊषा आंटी और विशवास भईया वाला शतरंज को खेला करो

  18. horse gives support to soldier.
    hail the lord!

  19. This is not a rivalry. This is a massacre

  20. When magnus moved Rc7 on 7:05 but he should move Rh8 that will win a queennnnnnn!

  21. В туберкулёзном диспансере чтоли играли?
    На фоне точно кто-то коня двинул, причём разных возрастов группка подъехала

  22. 5:40, Magnus opponent should have taken that Pawn at B5 earlier… That's what costed him in the end.
    Bravo Magnus 👏🏻

  23. why would he give up they were in excact same position

  24. Guys explain, why do players stand up and go walk around the room in the middle of the game?
