  1. Also congratulations to Wei Yi! Outstanding performance!

  2. Magnus will always be at the top till he retires. and even then nobody comes close. he's right there as the GOAT

  3. Wei Yi may have lost but I'm impressed with his performance.

  4. Guys what is gct points that prag got 7

  5. Goat will always be the GOAT…..
    But Indians are soon going to be at the Top

  6. Magnus pi$$ed on candidates winner🤣

  7. Glad to see Wei Yi joining the world elite after quite a few years of struggle. Love his playing style too!

  8. Rrr! Unwatchable coverage of rapid chess as usual. You said you were going to 'focus on' games! To me that means literally sticking to a decent camera position of the board and clocks and following the game in its entirety.

    Great view of the board of Gukesh v Yi up until 12:02, but after that I switched off. Can you NOT switch screens for your analysis, just put insets in the corners if you want to do hypothetical lines / analysis etc? It's really important in rapid and blitz to keep the camera focus on the board continuously, because time is such a central element. Because when we return to the physical board at 20:10 it's changed out of all recognition, and the action is missed.

    Can you imagine panning away in the middle of a tennis match for 8 minutes while commentators discuss and hypothesise? And when do you ever see the commentators faces during a tennis match? Never.

    Please do better in the next tournament.

  9. Magnus is a genius. How he came back to top the list is unbelievable!

  10. Johvanka hates carlsen haha but does nothing matters

  11. I always enjoy with Yasser as commentator …he is the best for that …hope every big tournament they invite him

  12. You cannot use engine to check blitz game and say the player make mistake, mistake, mistake.

  13. I dont know what to do with my life after this concluded

  14. Flukesh cannot become the world champion with a performance like that. Ding needs to save chess from mediocrity.

  15. 10 games in a row should just be called the Magnus.

  16. that fork was insane against wei yi

  17. You should definitely put the bar next to the small digital board when players are on the main screen. It helps the average viewer to understand what's happening on the board and increases intensity of emotions.

  18. Gukesh came in last and challenges for the WC. Speaks so much for the WC tournament.

  19. I'm glad I predicted Magnus would win the tournament! Congratulations!!

  20. It's bizarre how satisfying witnessing pure dominance in a particular field is.

  21. Good day! Warm greetings from the city of Santa Monica, USA! let’s go Praggnanandhaa!

  22. You all were genious, and the crew too! ❤️

  23. I don't have words to describe this man, literally the greatest of all times.

  24. Jovanka Houska is a breath of fresh air. She really understands these position and is so knowledgeable. One of my fav commentators.

  25. This loosing and making a comeback is becoming habitual for Magnus now.

  26. He always does trail and error at the start of the tournament and wins all the games at the end to makeup

  27. El comentarista te duerme es increible lo lento que habla

  28. When i saw magnus being extremely disappointed in his performance yesterday I knew everyone was cooked 🔥

  29. Everybody plays chess, but Magnus wins.

  30. Yasser is undoubtedly not only the most professional commentator but the most fun one to listen to.

  31. im not a chess player , i know the moves but the commentary was enjoyable , i was able to follow along somewhat and really enjoyed the excitement they displayed with some of the moves. tom

  32. Amazing games, especially that blunderfest between Wei Yi and Prag 😂 it really shows just how dangerous time trouble can be even for the best players.

  33. How the hell did Magnus win?? Or how the hell didn’t Wi win???

  34. Good day! Warm greetings from the city of Santa Monica, CA, USA! Let’s go Praggnanandhaa!
