  1. Jeez .. got to be one of the most emphatic chess commentators I have ever heard and seen! Hammering it!! hehe..

  2. Excellent game and review. Thank you for making this!

  3. MVL is just the definition of a chess player. Always focused, determined and at the top of his game

  4. Irina blink twice if you need to be rescued from this stream.

  5. Haven't seen the games but nice to see MVL winning stuff again

  6. This duo commentary is not very good kind of robotic

  7. I feel bad for the players who couldn't continue due to covid testing.
    Congrats to the champions.

  8. I am happy to see shreck branch out to commentate on chess.

  9. hello to answer to GM krush question at 3 min 50 s i am french and i will translate for her what MVL said about this game: The turning point was just before the last game, i understood that i could play the same opening and having a good position maybe a winning position if if could improve the position played on the first game so i had to change a few moves to improve the position and movin the queen to C2 was my plan. So MVL didn t find this move on the board but it was planned best regards from france

  10. This year has been great, me and my son (8) have been following and had some nice nights, it's pulled him away from his bloody tablet anyhow so Thankyou.
