  1. Bro Magnus is asked the same questions at the end of almost every event because he almost always wins them and you can really see that he just doesn't want to answer the same questions this often.

  2. Nazi is very sharp, and presents her many ideas with justifiable confidence. All commentators are quite competent; a pleasure to watch.

  3. 11 wins in a row for Magnus. Odds for a typical player, assuming 60% decisive games, 4:3 white-black win ratio, 6 white games, 5 black games won: over 500,000 to 1

  4. It’s so fun to see the same guy win every tournament

  5. Magnus "the G.O.A.T" Carlsen Wins the Tournament as always🔥
    Performance :
    In Rapid :- Won-4, Draw-3, Lost-2 {3rd place)
    In Blitz :- Won-14, Draw-2, Lost-2 {1st place)
    Overall :- 20.5/27🔥1st place🔥 Undoubtedly The Greatest Chess Player of all Time

  6. Magnus The Ultimate Beast🔥
    Even in the age of Engines, He is still able to defeat Everyone
    Magnus Carlsen is Undoubtedly The Greatest Chess Player of all Time🔥 Perfect Brand ambassador of Chess

  7. "Magnus Carlsen is Undoubtedly The Greatest Chess Player of all Time🔥 Perfect Brand ambassador of Chess". I agree 💯!

  8. Magnus Magnus Magnus…. Are there no other games to show??? 💩

  9. 1:31:00 what on earth is happening here? Again, flipping back and forth blazingly fast, moves barely corresponding to words spoken – I really don't understand why this production must treat all of it's viewers as super GMs with incredible visualization? You have so much to learn from Norwegian TV coverage of these tournaments. Not the fact that they exclusively focus on Magnus – but the fact that they focus on that specific moment, where the analysis board is in tune with what is said. It is dead simple – this is how you address viewers of all ages and skill levels.

  10. Lovely commentary. This is easily tied for 2nd place with chessbase india Sagar's commentary. Vishy sir's commentary in the world classical championship's nepo vs carlsen 8hr+ game is GOAT commentary.

  11. Miro really is great entertainment! His commentary in the World Cup some years ago was great.

  12. Alireza once again proved that he is the best blitz player.

  13. Great event well covered would love to see these 5 covering more events in future 🎉

  14. Congrats to Nepo for finishing second and congrats to Carlsen for the exhibition

  15. Magnus losing to Alireza. I was watching the game and thought at the critical juncture – "He just lost a piece …but wait, he can win it back with a check." Magnus missed the check! I'm not bragging – just astounded that Magnus would miss it.

  16. Love LiChess. Works great and looks good. Great tourney, great coverage

  17. Who's making the production decision to switch from the great view with the eval bar/players/commentators to the terrible view of just the board? How does this make any sense? I'll never get it. I immediately just start skipping through the video to get back to the parts with the eval bar. Sad coverage.

  18. "when it rains it pours" Yessir Yasser! Heard that a few times now 😉

  19. Second round most important match is between firouzja and ian and you streaming magnus game ? It’s ridiculously tendentious
