  1. Thanks for a great stream! I very much prefer your stream to the main one – even if i am from Norway 😀 Strange that there was no camera directed at the Magnus game, from start to finish, only the distant one. But TWO close ones at the Nakamura game — was that because of the organizers?

  2. More than 34 participants are Indians 🇮🇳 🇮🇳 or in other way half of participants are indians

  3. no on cares but, i resigned in 40 mins in the Masters B 😭

  4. Why magnus didn't complain to the arbiter when he realised opponent wearing watch? Why he is complaining this thing on twitter. Yes he is the best player in present, but that doesn't mean he can't lose.

  5. Like you can used for tournament presentation but not to see chess.

  6. The music is not good for chess.

  7. Wait… wasn't Qatar that country, where both man and women can get 7 YEARS IN PRISON for homosexuality and theoretically even CAPITAL PUNISHMENT can be delivered for Muslim people?
    Why FIDE keeps organizing important tournaments, like World Championships in Dubai, in a places that are not respecting human right, can flog or stone you to death, etc. for no serious reason?? …Wait, I know why!! Because of money!

  8. Please make all match videos seperately ….It's impossible to watch in one time…

  9. Oeeee qeeee. Tiene toda la razón Carlsen….En un torneo oficial para Elo, un IRT la ley FIDE señala que la gente no puede estar paseando alrededor de los contenedores y que en el área de juego menos la gente puede estar con celular😮😮. Francamente en la 3ra ronda debe aplicarse eso sino inmediatamente los jugadores deben solicitar aplicación de la ley. Si no aceptan se deben Retirar 😑
