  1. However this WC ends, I have to say that Ian and Ding are my favorite human beings among the top players. Both super nice and respectful, focused but human, and still among the top 5 in the World.

  2. I thought these "commentators" were going to have heartattacks!

  3. I know this is harsh but Ding always put himself in time trouble as you can see from the candidates and most of this championship, I think he plays good when heโ€™s under pressure, it brings the best out of him but sometimes it backfire but time is part of the game and he need to master that craft

  4. Off-topic, but here it goes: What is the name of the background song? Love it!

  5. World championship match level definitely went down after Magnus left

  6. Best world championship match I've ever seen

  7. Ding pushed himself beyond his limits, he has achieved a greater honor than the championship itself.

  8. This proves a "simple" board game can take your soul outside your body.

  9. I didn't see this part live… When I left for bed Ding was doing good… This is soooo sad ๐Ÿ™ But I'm also happy for Nepo, and I think he tried to cheer Ding a little at the end there…

  10. To be honest this psychological breakdowns gives me terrifying chills that How much Magnus was resistant to these kind of mental pressure breakdowns, in game 6 of last WCC even magnus was down on clock but he managed to get in further time control

  11. Danya at the point even lost his eyes for a sec ๐Ÿ˜‚ So dramatic

  12. 1:52 Ian broke him ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคญ. Anish: Ding malfunctioned ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜†

  13. This feels like drama over nothing. The guy was thinking and we can see him keeping an eye on the clock. He just had no good moves to make.

  14. Ding has the kind of face that makes you want to pat his head and give him a lollipop

  15. lol, announcers so dramatic. Love the full screen of Ding there, it would be great to see someone just also show the game and players at the board only, you could switch back and forth to diff windows.

  16. I was glad Magnus didn't defend the title and this match is just confirming my feelings.

  17. Sad, after the sublime win in the previous game- i hope he can come back well, this must have been a hammer blow.

  18. General of your mom, your best reptilioid says:

    Ding the Frozen One

  19. just make a couple of doing nothing moves and he'll be ok with the added time but the pressure is too big :(( this would be his best game if he had been able to keep playing and win

  20. bruh .. what is happening to naroditsky's eyes ?
