  1. Whomever pointed to clock at end does not know chess etiquette. Unless you are TD or other official you never, ever, and I mean ever inject yourself into the game. That's just as bad as suggesting a move as it is up to opposing player to notice.

    For those of you new to tournament chess, read that again.

  2. Phenomenal ! 👏☺️
    Black's ideas to keep marching ahead despite staying slightly behind. That Black bishop on rank-8 is just amazing ! Sitting quietly and waiting to control any advancement from White's King side.
    04:36 Bxh7 : White missed to take that free h-pawn ? Looks like a trap to block White's bishop if White takes it. Because White's King side connected pawns will get disconnected.

  3. It's so interesting to see a strong GM have incredible difficulty moving physical chess pieces, must be used to online chess.

  4. Beautiful game from both. Thank you chessbase India 🇮🇳. From Mexico 🇲🇽

  5. Black pieces are crazy , look at the the way that he’s moving his pieces

  6. Yoo played like a machine in this game. Dayum. was basically flawless moves all the way.

  7. Don't want to feel like the queen in Gelfand's right hand after that game.
