  1. Made a mistake by not covering Magnus 1st game where he only had 30 seconds against 3:00 from running late.

  2. You had me singing Shaggy's Mr lover lover when you were talking about Polina Shuvalova 2:51:40 😆

  3. I see that Eric Hansen is back. Good to see that he is feeling better.

  4. 𝒎𝒆𝒍𝒂𝒏𝒄𝒉𝒐𝒍𝒚 says:

    “you can’t have it all”
    – gm peter leko

  5. jan with little perls "no reason for p1p1 in your pampers"

  6. My boy richard rapport winning 5 of his last 6 finishing strong lets go!

  7. Due to very specific reason there is only one player from Ukraine AND LIKE 40 F PLAYERS FROM RUSSIA

  8. Top Games for anyone interested in just watching a few games

    nakamura vs caruana 3:11:32

    nakamura vs nihal sarin 2:03:00

  9. We need to pressure FIDE into stop punishing Russian players, and allow them to fly their country's flag again. FIDE has no business playing petty politics, venting their anger onto innocent players. It's wrong, and the chess community needs to stand up to them.
