  1. your commentary take games to another level.

  2. This guy is my favorite commentator. Keep it up!

  3. Sagar has earned exceptional rapport with Carlson, Anish, Hikaru and other top GM’s that causes them to open up in his interviews. I’ve watched a lot of his interviews, and I think its a unique blend of 1. Gleeful enthusiasm for the game, 2. high-level chess knowledge (can speak on their level), and 3. Empathy for ‘messing up/ choosing the wrong line. I think the last of these is extremely important because GM’s tend to be transparent about their blunders if they feel they are in a non-judgemental / empathic zone. A lot of other reporters ‘critique’ GM’s in interviews (with the benefit of their supercomputers) whereas Sagar seems to embrace the inherent insanity of trying to figure out perfection under time pressure.

  4. Sagar bhai op commentary as always 🤝✨🇮🇳

  5. The best chess commentary ever. Quick and accurate analysis with such excitement!

  6. Your commentary on these chess battles is better than any commentary by professional sports announcers.

  7. Soooo .. is this live commentary or edited in after the fact?
    The former would be hard to believe.
    Either it makes it very exciting!

  8. Glad to see Anish won new blitz against Carlson…😮😮

  15. Giri c4 winning moves but he chose not to do. Instead his bishop trapped

  16. Very excellent commentary. I love the commentary and high-level thinking with the audience! Subscribed

  17. Bad commentary. Good commentary should be made without analysing the game prior.

  18. Magnus really needs to dial down his ego. What a shame.

  19. What an exciting commentary! The future of chess is in the blitz and rapid games, like Bronstejn said 70 years ago (!) …

  20. They always make the same hand gestures when discussing the game

  21. Absolutely love that there is commentary. It makes this so much more exciting. What an amazing job he did as well.

  25. Amazing how good and accurate the commentator was… he a GM?

  26. Brilliant commentator you make the energy lively.
