  1. 4:36:08 for the standings after Day 2. In my opinion these should be shown more frequently during the broadcast.

  2. I must that the commentating drastically improved today over yesterday. The chemistry between the commentators and the gentlemen working the engine was not great yesterday but it appears everyone is more comfortable and the experience as a viewer is much better today. Great job!

  3. Adding Miro to the commentary team was a great decision!

  4. Great to see Miro again. He understands exactly how to handle the computer role. Always careful to point out that it's the computer doing the thinking while paying due deference to human ideas. When in response to a suggestion from Yaz he said, "If you played that move against me, I would be afraid, but the machine doesn't care," he showed with perfect grace and humor how to integrate computer input with the human factor. I hope we'll see more of Miro in the future.

  5. Evgenij Miroshnichenko, its the best chess ancor. Nice to see you Evgenij

  6. Magnus choked badly …… Fabi just owns him now

  7. The fisheye cameras on the players is so weird

  8. Why does the eval bar come and go so much? Why not just decide to show it or not?

  9. I like how Miro clearly learned chess AND English from Kasparov. "Ya know…"

  10. @1:47:52 So NASA named two minor planets after Vishy? One 4538 and 4528? Just kidding, 4538 is correct. Someone must have decided to type it again instead of copy pasting. Always a bad idea 😀 Just copy and pasta
