  1. It tok u 1h to catch the animale beacuse each person generets 75Watts hehe funn fackt

  2. This guy is very likable. I wish he was my neighbour.

  3. Great to see another one of Peter's classic Banter Blitz's!!

  4. Someone please find out what did shaba(or whatever) said around 24mins that upset Peter a little

  5. So happy to see a new banter blitz with the one and only Piotr Svidler! =DDDDD

  6. I don't know if you read the comments on YT after the stream, Peter, but "varied" is pronounced va-reed, not va-ride. like the "ried" in "buried".

  7. One of these days Peter's stream will be ok and i will start wondering if i am in the wrong place

  8. Я в шоке, читерас на читерасе. Петя, доколе? Сколько еще ты будешь этих тупых овощей обслуживать?

  9. UnknownIdentity plays kind of suspiciously imo. Such strong moves like that in that short amount of time? He played really well.

  10. even with 10 frames a minute i would watch your show! Don't worry. be happy. and the replay has no issues too 😉

  11. The entertainment value of this is off the charts.

  12. HE'S BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Can anyone explain to me why on earth around 27:18 he doesn't simply play Qxd7+ Kxd7 Rfe1? The comp gives this a dead equal position and it looks good for white: Black's king is completely exposed on an open file, while white is castled and the material is equal. Qe1 is a totally unnecessary and passive move it seems, why wouldnt he take the queen on d7?

  14. ShellingFord might be a good player, but is for sure a complete moron

  15. For what it's worth, I prefer Peter to play strong opponents. It makes the chess more interesting.

  16. Shellingford is a cheater, plays engine move the whole time

  17. Hey Peter, not everyone watching here is a gm, i mean you should explain why you resigned in some positions that aren't so clear for us,even though it looks obvious for you.

  18. Peterism: "… this is not going at all well."

    Englishism: "… this is not going well at all."

  19. This is hilarious. Spending the whole first game commenting on his poor internet connection while comfortably beating the opponent. Continuing with contacting "a tech guy" after the match while talking about how his week have been like this, full of issues (16.48min), before admitting he should have "rebooted his router" before starting. Then telling about his new guinea pig! Pure class.

  20. Shelling Ford used engine in the game., when he has to make his own moves-during last secs, he just ran naked and saved his life.. shameless fellow

  21. yeah GO Plantbased everyone for the animals! Go Peter!

  22. Let's all donate to buy Svidler a new PC and a lifetime of fast internet.

    44.Qd7+ Kg8 45.Qxb7+– [White loses on time]


  24. ¿El Divis sabrá que Polborta es Peter Svidler? Le hicieron ratatatatá, como diría Pepe Cuenca.

  25. 'Where did I miss mate in one?' slips into trance and plays through entire game in head

  26. Peter likes The Wire! What a kickass dude

  27. Peter Svidler is head, shoulders and beltbuckle above the crowd as far as chess ability is concerned.

  28. for how long do you think Svidler can still play at the top of competitiveness?

  29. Peter and I have something in common. I don't like playing like an idiot either. Of course, I do it much more often than he, but still …

  30. I would really like a Peter story time section, sounds awesome
