  1. At 7:54 Magnus first adjusts the position of his c4 pawn and then moves his king. Doesn't he violate the touch-move rule here? Of course it wasn't his intention to play that pawn, but technically it's an error, no? (it would be ridiculous to lose a game like this though and I'm glad he wasn't punished for it)

  2. Magnus traded down into a slightly better endgame with the more useful pawn majority that could potentially create a winning passed pawn on the kingside. On the other hand, Dubov’s queenside majority was maimed with doubled pawns and more easily stopped from created any passed pawn. This gave him a two result game of either winning or drawing with little risk

  3. 0:26 keymer and dubov having a laugh because of magnus routine haha

  4. I love this guy. "If magically you could transfer your knight to c5, THAT WOULD BE EPIC." Sagar, you're already epic.

  5. the comentator like know whole playround. bout he's got nothing. stopping describe move both. just watch

  6. Зашёл чтобы посмотреть как крутят пешку в руке, а тут какая то шахматная партия…♟️🎩

  7. If you have the black pieces, it's better to trade off the kings as soon as you can.

  8. Can I ask what chess piece they are using because the design is something I like it

  9. Great explanations, I learned a lot about such positions.

  10. Magnus I guess is all business at the hand shake.. not even a smile if they are good friends? weird.. Dubov smiled

  11. I don'tt speak english but Sahh quel plaisir ! what a Analyse by Sagar ❤

  12. Everyone: "Here"
    The chess commentator: "HIOR"

  13. Amazed that this is real-time commentary. How in the world did you know Dubov was going to jump his knight all over the board only to trade it immediately after getting to its spot?

  14. Belle partie, merci Sagar pour votre commentaire 🙂

  15. In modern era MVL & Dubov are known for creativity , hustling on the board

  16. Thora rest lo iarHum ko bhi sochney ki mouka do bhaiBap re bap

  17. dubov copy the magnus habit, playing with pieces of pawn while thinking

  18. Even in the end Dubov has more than 15 minutes on the clocks against Magnus. Amazing

  19. Si Dubov quisiera creo q podria desafiar a Carlsen, pero lo admira demasiado cmo para eso. No debería ser su amigo.
