  1. Alireza is streaky, when he’s on fire he’s OP though

  2. Can the lady calm down a little? Thanks.

  3. the report is so discriminative and biased. Are you reporting the game or are you supporting the Magnus?

  4. Although Tania was great in commentery, however she picked sides and it made the whole thing looks bad, I have seen her picking Indian's sides so many other times as well ☹️

  5. Some of the best high level chess. If you don't watch or don't play you will after the 2nd game

  6. I actually like Tania commentating 😊😊😊 she know what she talking about

  7. Did hikaru decline to participate in this tournament?

  8. I hate that they don't show magnus throwing the water bottle….SHOW IT! Show players in their raw environment. Enough with this censorship crap. We want to see the RAW FEELINGS AND REACTIONS OF THE PLAYERS!! STOP TRYING TO MAKE THEM APPEAR BETTER LIKE SAINTS BY PANNING THE CAMERA AWAY.

  9. It’s just rapid. Alireza still doesn’t have the discipline to seriously challenge Magnus and co in standard time control.

  10. Great tournament! Great games! But. Very strange format. The word "Final" is used too many times. Final this, final that. We already sometimes getting confused with Armagedon, and on top of that we have several "finals", just confusing a bit.

  11. I dont like pulling and moving the pieces by commentators during so intresting match, arrows are good… but moving pieces 🙁

  12. Commentators were Magnus biased from the beginning till the end.

    Surprisingly even after Alireza delivered the surprise, they still lean towards Magnus.

  13. Great commentary by Daniel and Tania! One of the best competitions in recent years and congrats Alireza!

  14. Magnus tilted so much probably he lost because of that

  15. All the Alireza haters from the candidates be having a bad day lol😂

  16. “Maybe he threw something at the router” 💀

  17. Bring David Howell and remove Tania he is way more fun

  18. Magnus is great, but not the Better of all times

  19. I think Magnus was just bored with winning comp in, comp out; he could have gotten away with a draw game four, but he decided to spoil the spectators instead with a good show. Good on him. And kudos to Firouzja, of course.

  20. It's always a pleasure hearing Daniel's amazing commentary. Sometimes I enjoy it more than the chess!

  21. Iranian number one not French
    And this was good shit 👍🏼

  22. Alireza is a Chad man…he had a great comeback against the GOAT magnus 🎉

  23. “It’s not up his alley-reza” – Tania dropping bombs 😂

  24. Please No Tania Commentry from next time Button👇

  25. Alireza performance is better in Blitz and Bullet online than in Classical

  26. Losing against those glasses must be traumatic.
