  1. Anish Giri really brightened up my day – my wife laughed a lot as well when I told her some of the jokes ROFL 🥰

  2. Gukesh 🤝 Arjun hanging rook in one against Nodirbek to lose the tournament

  3. You always are proud of Gukesh but he cant win in international competion

  4. I respect india chess players There are many chess players who participated in Qatar but Uzbek players are strong they always beat you

  5. Uzbek silaaaa🇺🇿🇺🇿🇺🇿🇺🇿

  6. All big stars Carlsen, Nakamura, Giri, Gukesh failed. Less known Nodirbek who is not even in world top 100 and is Uzbekistan no.4 is real surprise winner. How many of chess fans even knew his family name before this tournament ? Very calm, calculated performance 5 wins , 4 draws, no losses in main tournament, same as Abdusattorov . That is how you play swiss tournament, without excessive risks.

  7. The whole blunder unfolding is hilarious. Sagar and Amruta have the live game open in another tab and they are following it too. The moment Anish made those expressions you can see the change of expression in both Sagar and Amruta because they saw it too. But they didn't want to react without it being updated on the board on screen because – content ka khel hai sab.

    There's nothing wrong in over exaggerated fake reactions because most audience members don't get it and it is good for engagement and content creation but hilarious if you get to see how phony the reaction were. And then amruta says "if that is true, whatever it is, it is a big heartbreak for Arjun" behen how do you it is for Arjun. 🤣 and then the over reaction of "it's gonna come now?" 🤣 . There are seconds when Sagar is waiting anxiously to make some fake reaction when it is reflected in the main screen. Again nothing wrong, they have to do it because most people watch the stream for moments like these. But if you see through the inner working of how they think, it turns out be hilarious.

  8. Why do our players seem to always do well at the beginning and mess up in the last rounds? 😢

  9. Arjun Erigaisi- The choker of Indian chess future stars .
    Always crumbles in an important match under pressure whether personal or for the nation.
    Look at the difference between him and Abdusattarov, always delivering when needed

  10. 4:00:59 Amrita needs to learn manners. You cant use S%$# word like that in professional commentary. Sagar and Amrita need to stop unnecessary laughing/use professional words for exciting/crazy situation to make this channel more reliable. If you want to continue as it is, the channel will stay mediocre or not up to the standards of professional chess commentators.

  11. Обе Нодирбека господствует престижным турнире.

    Возможно, ближайшие годы они будут бороться за чемпионство мира.

  12. The Nodirbek showdown was very unexpected to watch.

  13. Uzbek players have champion mentality, they play fearlessly and win at the crucial moments. Our Indian players (except Pragg) are mentally weak and choke at crucial moments. Especially pointing fingers at Gukesh here. Just shows rating points are not everything. Hats off to Uzbekistan players and their coach – the legendary Rustam Kasimdzhanov.
