  1. not even a look, not even Good-bye, very rude

  2. Game speak for itself.. IM was trying to be asking for his mistakes in the end😊😢😮😅

  3. Hans is to powerful he is from illuminati

  4. Hand was smirking all along the game meaning his opponent was too weak for him

  5. why is he playing a rook down ? shameless behaviour , also he played reall bad for an IM.

  6. The IM wanted to talk, this Hans guy didn't even look at him

  7. The #*Ignore* clickmagnet can apply here🤪

  8. At the end was he acting arrogant or didn't see his opponent asking his mistakes..but happy for him

  9. Hans was bore after seen opening mistake 😴

  10. Opponent didnt played like IM his accuracy would be like 75 in this game😮😮😮

  11. What a shame for these Indian players, even being an IM he was playing like a 1500 rated player. Also Hans missed a winning move too in 3:53 time stamp
