  1. give Hans candidate spot already for participating

  2. Why repeatedly interject that one is a pawn-grabber ? Yasser does the same elsewhere, which has been for a long time now beyond irritating. No one is interested in that. Why is a file repeatedly called a line and even a square called a spot ? This is terminology no-one else uses. DH as always listens with good grace, but he might perhaps have a quiet word off-air.

  3. Fabi's in the candidates anyway, he knows Naka also deserves to be in it

  4. Watching the end of the Giri/Niemann without any commentary was very satisfying. Oh, I just realized that may come across as negative. All the commentary was excellent. Interviews with round winners were excellent. But I really enjoyed the experience of watching the endgame conversion live as it happened. And turning the mics on at the end? Well done!! Perfect!!
