  1. Can you guys please add the bar as well it's easier for us to understand the position with that

  2. Magnus the blitz specialist lol. Washed up in only format that matters aka classical at 32 lol. Put Karpov in blitz and see what happens.

  3. Is Miroshnychenko Seirawen's toy boy?

  4. It's so crazy when you think about it. All the other players are so insanely strong.. And then there is Magnus, playing in a complete different league…

  5. "I think, I never won all games in one day" … Lol he won all games on Tuesday 11/11 hahaha

  6. Amazing performance and result from Magnus!! 9/9 😮♟

  7. Wow…… what a historical day ❤🎉🎉

  8. Chess should be named MAGNUS what a Legend

  9. Love that reaction from him after winning Lupulescu.
    He looks at the crowd and raises his arms
    Are you not entertained?

  10. I think that Yasser's mug should be a Pot of Greed one.

  11. Love the way Christian gives the quick recaps- quick move by move overview with the opening ideas/ main theoretical ideas both sides. Clear, concise, quick.

  12. How is this even possible 😀 i can t get 10 wins in a row even vs 500 less rated opponents.


  14. If more Blacks ever got into competitive chess, I think that they would dominate just like they do in everything else they get into.

  15. Magnus proving he is the best for over a decade. Ding hiding under a rock after barely playing any games as the paper champion.

  16. How is Alireza fealing about M*slims invading France?

  17. Magnus is still the best whenever he wants to. The question is, how often does he want and how much … by the way blitz is a completely different discipline than classical. He's best in both though.

  18. Kinda feel for Caruana after that first match. Him thinking it`s a draw not knowing that Magnus is in for the squeeze

  19. Take away chess engines from the commentators lets see how it goes

  20. Questioning why you are using Miroshnichenko as the engine interpreter. Not to question his knowledge, rather because of his somewhat elitist attitude; "you don't see the three moves ahead that makes it obvious why that move was a mistake? Well, I'm not gonna tell you – I'm not Agadmator". See for instance his recap from 29:25. To be fair, I don't really think he is being elitist – he just does not understand the audience.

  21. Magnus wins forever all others and so called prodigies participate.

  22. magnus is the GOAT for a reason . winning 11 in a row at this level is just ridiculous !

  23. Magnus is simply the best in blitz without any doubt

  24. Magnus played so well. 9/9 today and earlier this tuesday he scored 11/11 in TT. I was waiting for hikaru video on this achievement for so long, but didnt see any on it, otherwise he will use magnus thumbnails on all of his videos.

  25. The only chess person that can beat magnus in this format is Hikaru and he isnt here. Magnus is just way too strong in blitz alireza suppose to be super strong but i just dont see it!

  26. Really no point watching the rest of the match its over already!
