  1. I always enjoy with Yasser as commentator …he is the best for that …hope every big tournament they invite him

  2. Johvanka hates carlsen haha but does nothing matters

  3. Magnus is a genius. How he came back to top the list is unbelievable!

  4. Rrr! Unwatchable coverage of rapid chess as usual. You said you were going to 'focus on' games! To me that means literally sticking to a decent camera position of the board and clocks and following the game in its entirety.

    Great view of the board of Gukesh v Yi up until 12:02, but after that I switched off. Can you NOT switch screens for your analysis, just put insets in the corners if you want to do hypothetical lines / analysis etc? It's really important in rapid and blitz to keep the camera focus on the board continuously, because time is such a central element. Because when we return to the physical board at 20:10 it's changed out of all recognition, and the action is missed.

    Can you imagine panning away in the middle of a tennis match for 8 minutes while commentators discuss and hypothesise? And when do you ever see the commentators faces during a tennis match? Never.

    Please do better in the next tournament.

  5. Glad to see Wei Yi joining the world elite after quite a few years of struggle. Love his playing style too!

  6. What a horrible comment by johvanka realy disgusting

  7. Never want to hear this woman again

  8. Magnus pi$$ed on candidates winner🤣

  9. Goat will always be the GOAT…..
    But Indians are soon going to be at the Top

  10. Guys what is gct points that prag got 7

  11. Wei Yi may have lost but I'm impressed with his performance.

  12. Magnus will always be at the top till he retires. and even then nobody comes close. he's right there as the GOAT

  13. Also congratulations to Wei Yi! Outstanding performance!

  14. as always, grateful to live in the magnus era and able to witness his mastery/sorcery in the present. congrats goat ♥

  15. This is mental 🔥🔥. Magnus wins 10 blitz games in a row over the board against top youngsters

  16. magnus reminds of kasparov both are very compettivte

  17. The betting company shoving their face in chess after all other popular sports to make even more profit from an addiction. Besides that, because they pay for it, they have the ability to control the outcomes. Who the hell is that dude? What are his links with chess? Does he even know an opening or what en-passant means? Man, you're in this business to kill people and take their money, get the f out.

  18. His competitive spirit is one of the things that separates him. How often have see seen him come from behind like this? You expect it now.

  19. Magnus will win it all. He’s just too good. There is nothing the rest can do..we can just watch him win 🤷🏽‍♀️ Gukesh coming last is worrying- remember Ding won the WCs during tiebreaks …Ding was strong in that format too but Gukesh is very weak in Rapid and Blitz. So in case the WCs this year go to tiebreaks then it’s going to be a tough one for Gukesh

  20. The young gen all need to learn the end game. Nothhing about Magnus. He makes so many mistakes and proper players would have punsihed him. Many games were given away. Silly. Wei is the real winner for me.

  21. Not having even a chance to see fight for the 3rd place, where Polish Duda played – in Warsaw the host city(!!), while Wei Yi had zero chance after Carlsen's draw – is to me totally disrespectful and shame. They just indicate the fact, but I if it was US player from for example Armenia, they'd show most probably the hole game. 3rd place means nothing it seems.

  22. What happened to all of the younger players! They ran into the King!

  23. Good day! Warm greetings from the city of Santa Monica, CA, USA! Let’s go Praggnanandhaa!

  24. How the hell did Magnus win?? Or how the hell didn’t Wi win???

  25. Amazing games, especially that blunderfest between Wei Yi and Prag 😂 it really shows just how dangerous time trouble can be even for the best players.

  26. im not a chess player , i know the moves but the commentary was enjoyable , i was able to follow along somewhat and really enjoyed the excitement they displayed with some of the moves. tom

  27. Yasser is undoubtedly not only the most professional commentator but the most fun one to listen to.

  28. Everybody plays chess, but Magnus wins.

  29. When i saw magnus being extremely disappointed in his performance yesterday I knew everyone was cooked 🔥

  30. El comentarista te duerme es increible lo lento que habla

  31. He always does trail and error at the start of the tournament and wins all the games at the end to makeup

  32. This loosing and making a comeback is becoming habitual for Magnus now.

  33. Jovanka Houska is a breath of fresh air. She really understands these position and is so knowledgeable. One of my fav commentators.

  34. I don't have words to describe this man, literally the greatest of all times.
