  1. No digital board?? Bruh what's the point of watching too though to keep up on the board🥲🥲

  2. Two rook vs queen it's a good game what a high paced game ..

  3. Well done to that asshole who stood in front of the camera when hikaru came back to say something.

  4. Oh Wow !!! What a game we have just witnessed 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
    literally mind blowing

  5. Missing chess board to watch what's happening

  6. @ChessBase India a 2D chess board in the top corner would make these videos 5x better. Stay awesome


  8. 6:10 hikaru touched his queen right, so it should be touch to move!?

  9. Those who are complaining about digital board not there and finding it difficult to identify the moves . hey you Guys YouTube have a option to zoom the screen. Update your YouTube app. I just saw this battle in 1.9x zoom and at 1.25x speed . Perfect combo .it was like standing right next to nihal . No coughing noise either.enjoy 👏🥳🌟 ✨

  10. Zugzwang at the ending what ever move hikaru makes will end in his loss. 😍👏

  11. जो बोले सो निहाल
    सत श्री अकाल 🛡️⚔️🛡️

  12. Is this the same seat, where Vidit shocked everyone with his stuning King Sacrifise?

  13. Digital board pe bhi dikhana chahiye tha. From one angle it was not very much clear.

  14. Nihal is 2800+ in Blitz and bullet he is underrated..NIHAL OP💯💯😍🤟🏻

  15. The guy literally played his last 20+ moves on 5 seconds & that too against a beast like Hikaru. Simply brilliant.

  16. Sagar Bhai …thoda digital board dekh jata ..toh Maja hi aa jata …

  17. From stalemate trick to Zugzwang, what a ride Nihal! Hikaru's reaction says it all 😀

  18. What's wrong with the table and the coughing audience? This is very bad organisation.

  19. Qué hermosura de final. Felicitaciones

  20. Just love it how Nihal arranges opponent pieces after each match, culture.

  21. Nihal is simply a monster in shorter formats

  22. Really tissue under the table? Please edit this out next time

  23. Crushing speed monster with speed❤️❤️just nihalization❤️❤️love you bruda

  24. Those Brains are made of Neurons of Steel…😄😄😄😄
    Fun Fact…Most of us were watching the clock(most of the time) not the game…

  25. Fantastic game. I became fan of nihal in this match

  26. @sagar — missing audience straight view of the board.. pls add it in the video ..

  27. Guys when you upload a video like this. Please be kind enough to present a digital board alongside for us to understand the game. Thank you.
