  1. We are with you, Nodirbek. Brother, good luck!

  2. They are blowing each other (off the board) and thrusting each other (pawns). as they pushed their pieces into one another's rear ranks.

  3. They are blowing each other (off the board) and thrusting each other (pawns). as they pushed their pieces into one another's rear ranks.

  4. To promote the most frivolous and insignificant activities with the utmost confidence and arrogance is… Danny Rench.

  5. Great job by Magnus beating Fabi. Magnus will beat So in the finals.

  6. They're thrusting (pawns) and Blowing each other (off the board). And sliding their pieces into each other back ranks.

  7. These games were really good. The dynamics of chess viewing and commentary are changing.

  8. 6:33:37 "here we sit on the East coast.."? Are they playing in Halifax or Saint John's? No, they're in Torona, center of the universe! The world revolves around the CN Tower don't ya know. 😂

  9. Its disappointing that wesley always credits jesus when he wins. As if he himself possesses no skill. Its strangely naive, but then he is filipino and they tend to be very religious. Cant help thinking he'd have had more success at top level if he was more confident in his own ability without divine intervention

  10. Nodirbek we are with you. Good luck brother!!!

  11. Thank you for this tournament it got me playing again

  12. Please do not talk loudly over the players when they are speaking about anything, e.g. when Wesley was talking to Danny I think when he came in with Wesley with plushy. I wish I knew what he said. That is more important than anything at that moment — especially when the commentator is just rehearsing what has been said before.

  13. You guys are so incredibly skilled at handing off and setting each other up and with such a technical subject — and so fast. Graat job. A joy to watch. Still, it is disheartening for us mere mortals to watch you guys instantly sum up positions and key variations etc. 🙂

  14. Shades of Fischer-Spassky with the chairs …

  15. Nodirbek should play chess boxing. Abdusattorov vs Canty odds?

  16. deep analysis of that Indian woman about mate in one after "black Knight takes Knight on g4" (So vs Abdusattorov, first game, after move 14), served with that screeching voice of hers – what a pleasure!

  17. 03:19:00 omg Levy is so funny, not to mention an excellent commentator/reporter
