  1. For god sake stop showing your precious magnus for a second to at least see resultative moments of other boards. What a bullshit broadcast on this tournament.

  2. fight all the woke nonsense out there people.. its not normal to have trans athletes… it is a distraction from real issues like poverty and hegemony from NATO, USA… It's time we came together to fight capitalism on all fronts…corporations think we're dumb and will use gender politics to distract… don't let them win and tear us apart…

  3. 3:16:35 it seems like Fabi didnt get a full second of time added there. It went from 1.7s to 2.0s

  4. I guess i am the first person to comment for today..😂

  5. A question, does the Armegeddon game count as classical for ratings?

  6. no way for magnus to win guaranteed i think hikaru has a good chance of winning if not fabi

  7. Magnus in last is embarrassing dude lost his mojo

  8. I know this is semi-ridiculous and even dumb, but how can Magnus be the goat if at near his peak-rating he can’t win a single game in classical chess in 7 straight tries including against some substantially lower rated players?

  9. I hope the sleeping giant (Wesley So) has finally awaken. He’s been sleeping lately

  10. Is this Magnus' worst classical tournament performance? (Of course, this tournament isn't over yet)

  11. i've never seen magnus turn +4 into a losing position in classical !

  12. Interesting point by Hikaru on the confessional booth being mandatory. I think it would help the game and broadcasts a lot. It is not a crazy thing to require. We see it in many other sports. The coaches in the NBA finals going on currently have mandatory interviews they do throughout a game. I would be super interested to hear from these top great players that just don't talk that much

  13. Well, at least we know he's gotten his shorter time control skills back. His classical play is slowly coming but still not there, the eval was +2 when it was 14 mins for Magnus vs. 7 mins for Alireza, I thought for sure it was over, but… He's still got the rust. He should be extremely pissed his didn't win that classical, but also extremely happy Alireza didn't find the win at the end.

  14. Do we have any Romanian who play at the tournament?🙂

  15. Judit Polgar is so sharp as an analyst, it is stunning how fast she sees things. She is an impressive person to say the least. Greatest woman chess player in history by a country mile. I'm a fan

  16. As a Magnus Stan I must say I'm quite troubled with the way Magnus is playing.

  17. Magnus is secretly preparing for Blitz tournament

  18. Good commentator chemistry. They all pick up & run with what the others are saying & they all have a different perspective. Good combo

  19. What is the bgm name in the beginning of the video

  20. Does anyone know the name of the Celtic sounding flute music played during breaks?

  21. Magnus purposely draws the classical game just so he can play Armageddon.

  22. 4:25:06 Actually, after …f2, it's not over. Nf4+ leads to an amazing forced line with almost all only moves on both sides (!), a knight underpromotion for white , and many opportunities for it to go either way.4…f2 35.Nf4+ Kh7 36.Kg2 g3 37.Nd5(only move with choice (of knight moves, all different)) f4 38.c8=Q Rxc8 39.Bc7 Rh8 40.e6 Kg6 41.Nxf4+ Kg5 42.e7 Rh1 43.Nh3+ Kf6 e8=N+ Ke6 45.Nxf2 gxf2 46.Kxf2 Kd7 47.Ba5 Kxe8 …and black must still prove the win with rook vs. bishop and opposing pawns on a3 and a4.
