  1. 1:38:00 classy move by Nihal, resigning to give back a game bc of Ding's bad internet. I'm a new Nihal fan. What a great sport

  2. Why does rensch insist on using his nasally voice for the promos.. they would be so sick if you had a pro announcer with a deep voice to do them

  3. Sarin is getting stronger. Taking down Giri and Liren is a feat!

  4. I thought china had good tech. Bruh how's a professional chess player flagging because of crap internet. I am getting 500mbps 0-5ms ping for like 18ยฃ a month

  5. There's no little chance of hope of nihal against hikaru,,, its a massacre

  6. In game 2, they were screaming 'white Queen check on a4, then bishop b5!!" But Im confused. Bishop wouldnt be able to take on b5 because of the pin on the white king with blacks queen on h1…. Someone explain? To me they made a mistake in their commentary. Thats why Nihal chose to castle fit, to relieve the pin….

  7. Qa4+ is decisive . Black loses . Unfortunately , Nihal did not find it

  8. Somehow getting in semifinals is nomore a big deal for nihal sarin ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’โ˜บ๏ธ

  9. Daniel you are really impressive . I like your analysis

  10. nihal be like bap ka dada ka bhai ka sab ka badla lega re tera nihal

  11. Remembering how Ding versus Hikaru went last year, I wonder how Nihal versus Hikaru will go.

  12. 1:38:18 If you look closely…there is a conversation between Ding and Nihal…where Ding is saying "Thank you" while Nihal says "You're welcome". Two Gentlemen right there playing chess!

  13. I knew it Nihal Sarin is the future of Indian chess. Even Magnus loses to this kid in Blitz games.

  14. You do nice things not for reward. You do because it's part of your personality

  15. I feel bad for Ding .
    Dying seconds was the nightmare for his Internet signal and
    Nihal notice it that's why he gave one game to Ding ,I can see Nihal is going stronger and stronger good luck.
    Speed Chess 22 battle of class S monsters.
    Go Wesly๐Ÿ’ช.

  16. Great play by Nihal.. I really enjoyed the match.

  17. Both ding and nepo are currently focused in classical thats why they play bad in speed chess at the moment

  18. Nihal is not just a brilliant grandmaster,but also a nice person. These kind of chess players will make chess more popular.He is not just winning matches,He also winning the hearts of everyone .

  19. NIHAL blew off the interview again ๐Ÿ˜‚
    No one buys the technical issues after 4-5 hours of uninterrupted chess

  20. 17-9 nihal op๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

  21. Why don't u get a proper gm to comment gm games? Who needs IM nonsense?

  22. Nihal Sarin is so cool . To resign just beacuse ding had bad internet. Im a fan . Rooting for Nihal in semifinal.

  23. Wow, 2:00:00 is the most geometric thing ive ever seen in chess. The white king is like a classical electron being ushered around a nucleus by the electromagnetic force of the rooks

  24. Nihal, you gained a new fan, sportsmanship ๐Ÿ™‚
    And that cheeky wink ๐Ÿ˜€

  25. No wonder Nihals friends call him the devil. He is such a monster and also a gentleman. True sportsman I'd love to see him give blitz a break and bust out in classical chess.

  26. Nihal, you gained yet another fan man. What a great sportsmanship and sheer talent! Ding, you should change countries prodo, no good internet, issues with government etc. You may even grow balls and give a game back when people show great sporstmanship to you (Carlsen, Nihal). Being #2 in the world and have shitty internet connection, wtf is that shit in 2022?

  27. Daniel is the example of the Matrix forces and how society's invisible social pressures have managed to warp the mind and make it its own greatest enemies..

  28. I hope Danya is getting paid double the salarie – he is just such a great comentator. Btw you can really see the difference between a high level gm and a im, just the pure insights that Danya gives on the position wpuld take someone lower rater hours to figure out

  29. 1:38:15 Can they talk to each other? It felt like Ding unmuted and said thank you to Nihal and Nihal said it's okay or something.

  30. 3:04:19 that fist pump shows that he wanted to win this match and make statement about his speed play.

  31. Danny: perfection is an unrealistic expectation
    Carlsen when he only gets 98% accuracy: I played so terribly

  32. I think Nihal is not seriously playing with Anish giri that day otherwise he would totally dominate.

  33. levy let Daniel shows the analysis board.
