  1. Name 1 Israeli chess grandmaster that existed before online chess existed. That's why I don't play online chess anymore.

  2. So much toxicity & backseating towards the commentators, as well as bullshit misinformation in the chat, it's gag-worthy. People just repeating the same things again and again like bots it's depressing. Do they think they're being funny? First time I've deemed it necessary to hide the chat to enjoy a stream. Stream itself is fine.

  3. No more Trent please, an absolute rubish commentator

  4. Hi, I was just curious why Israeli's are 1% of the world population with the highest rated online chess ratings percentage per population size. They're also the lowest rated real life players who never show up at tournaments. Maybe it's because they're sh*t right? Maybe they have a special advantage in online chess vs. real life chess?


    When commentators are commenting on the main game and then disappear to another game and come back 5/10 moves later and they don't show the missing moves??
    Also when showing a game, when all the games are over, at least show the full game from the beginning!

    I know it's impossible to show all the moves from all games you show, but at least show all the moves from the main couple or three games you mainly analyse.

    Nice to see the opening and how they got in winning position, more complete games👍

  6. Great Commentary! David is as good as always, and while I had never seen IM Trent before, he impressed me

  7. I may be in the minority on this, but I find it irritating when the commentators hijack the board and start hypothesizing on various moves. I’d rather they commentate over a live board.

  8. Trent speaks ill of every Magnus position 10 – 15 moves in, such as the Ne2 move against Jorden which eventually became a powerful piece. Three or four moves later when Magnus is clearly better, Trent pretends "he understood the position all along". Such a duplicitous view makes for untrustworthy commentary. He is the only one that does this. It is annoying and I don't understand why they allow him to comment…?

  9. Hans Neimann 1:59:50 gets RESPECT (!) — well deserved. and 2:32:34
    Hans gets an amazing Rd. 7 win with some great tactics …d5-d4!!

  10. Great to have David Howell and Lawrence commentate instead of those incoherent European guys.

  11. Where did you find this Trent guy, an alley in Kazakhstan? Get him out of here!

  12. Let us just see the damn game in full size, it´s so frustrating.
    Not that interesting see/hearing your pocket philosophy..

  13. Dang the Trent hate seems a little unnecessary – he’s fine, but I’d super love to see Danya and David Howell do one of these tournaments. They’re both so insightful, and obviously Danya brings the passion and intensity as a commentator.

  14. Not possible to follow as a beginner because the commentators play their own chess all the time on the main board. Commentators should use the small board for their ego play.

  15. Trent is dreadful. Every so often he emits a bellow as if he is about to say something important, but what follows is silence. One example is at 1:07:35. There are many more in every video in which he appears.

  16. Terrible contrast between black pieces and dark squares.

  17. Title suggestion for Hikaru’s recap video today:
    Dear YouTube, I did an Anish Giri impression

  18. Hans will Bead everyone on the final day…Lets go😍Let chess speak for itself

  19. Gentleman! I love you both, but all day yesterday, and now this morning, you hate Magnus's position, and within about 10 minutes, Magnus has flipped it! Too funny.

  20. its sad that they dont even try to prevent cheating despite it being a huge problem and having a premiere cheater in the tournament. 3 min delay…. come on . Hiding from the fact that chess is full of cheaters is just pathetic, it has had cheaters for hundreds of years. Fix this issue, poor hans is losing his life because you allow cheating.

  21. this stream has made it a mission to not show hikaru, will be watching the other streams from other channels moving forward

  22. Trent gotta be one of the worst commentators ever

  23. can I just ask what is the first song named that is played on hte start of the stream the song that's 2 min long and the 1st song of the stream thank you!

  24. "this has gone horribly wrong for Magnus."
    Proceeds to wipe the floor with Jorden.
