  1. If I ever arrived at a drawn endgame against Magnus, I'd inmediately resign. Better not to waste any extra energy.

  2. Thank you St louis for this high quality coverage

  3. The funniest thing in the world will ALWAYS be the Magnus haters that call Magnus Washed after he loses even 1 game, they think cause he's the best in the world it means he should win literally every game and literally every tournament, lmfao. To finish day 1 of blitz going literally 5-0 and last win was an insane display of his GOAT endgame skills against Duda (the tournament leader) GEEZ. I swear, Magnus proves time and time and time and time and time again why he's the best in the world.

  4. are they really going to allow Magnus game 8 after he tapped his clock before picking up the piece he knocked over? as Yasser said thats a DQ, why isnt it enforced it absolutely influenced the game and Giri was winning when it happened

  5. When the ukrainian (?) woman and the romanian (?) guy are analyzing, it's impossible to follow all their thoughts (for intermediate noobs like me). The moves are not shown (or wrong moves are shown) way too often. It's nothing against them (I like them from other contexts), but it does'nt flow well this way (for us not able to play blindfolded). Otherwise good stream!

  6. C'mon, just give me an eval bar so I can watch this and have a clue what's going on.

  7. Many missed opportunities for Wesley So. His last game with Duda should have been a win.

  12. OMG, someone timestamp the Carlsen game where he plays the Danish

  13. and I love commentators voice, so soothing to hear

  14. Ask the female commentator to go solely by her surname, please.๐Ÿ˜ข

  15. I like Yasser but calling Mc โ€œmaggieโ€ seems a little disrespectful

  16. Why no one mentions Magnus is current world rapid and blitz champion

  17. 3:03:34
    Instead of saying former world champion, say world rapid and blitz champion
