  1. Another tournament where all americans resigns to Caruana to make him a winner.Congratulations, Maxim, You are the true winner!!!!!

  2. Thank you to the commentators for the wonderful job that you did as well as the whole crew and organization in general.

  3. As much as I like Svidler, he is also Ultra-Super GM in talking endlessly, to the point of becoming a bit disrespectful to his fellow commentators (despite them being lower rated).

  4. I have a question I always think about while watching their streams, the question is does the person operating the touch screen keeps on standing for the whole stream of 4-5 hours?

  5. First time I enjoyed a saint Louis tournament. Always found the commentary tedious and impossible to follow. Great job to the commentators. I was hoping for MVL to win but Caruana deserved it today

  6. Peter doing an absolutely superb job in the board role.

  7. Hello my friends grandmasters always keep in a good shape wear your favorite shoes in the games to avoid blunders..😊😊😊😊

  8. Fm tanya is also nice commentators.she is beautifull.😊❤😊

  9. Drinks coconut juice to refresh your minds..😊😊😊

  10. Congrats to Fabi and everyone involved. Ahh that was heartbreaking for MVL. He took his hand off the rook for a split second and was forced to play Re2. You could tell when MVL let go of the piece he knew that it was the wrong move.

  11. The killer blow was MVL losing the first two matches.

  12. great commentary and analysis cast, everyone did a great job! marvelous production value overall. well done to all, and congrats Fabi!

  13. without Magnus fast chess looks al of a sudden competitive)

  14. It's blatantly obvious to all promoters that Tania is ruining the viewing experience for a large portion of the chess fans by the negative comments regarding her presentation style in both the live chat and comments in any tournament she appears. Yet the promoters continue to hire her showing complete disregard for the fans when there is such a large choice of alternatives, shame on all of you for chasing the $$$ in a certain market.

  15. Very, very good tournament and very good commentators – much better than it usually is. Maybe because its so dynamic seeing the real board.

  16. To Anastasia and Tanya, thank you for putting some beauty and colour to the screen which Yasser and Peter cannot do. PS – Tanya, your silvery white dress looks really good IMO.

  17. Why is Magnus Carlsen not playing in St Louis this time?

  18. All credit to Alireza, for conceding the match like a true sportsman to MVL when their chess clock went blankety blank.
