  1. Me as Yasser: Christian. Can you Please let me finish a ***** thought man? Please.

  2. Las jugadoras estadounidenses creo que casi ninguna es cien por ciento americana, y eso debería de ser alarmante para quien enseña ajedrez en universidades y escuelas, no hay tanto apoyo como por ejemplo en la India o Rusia.

  3. Women's chess is like watching a sleepathon rather than a marathon

  4. It's irritating that the producers continually keep the view on the commentators 5 or 6 seconds too long while they discuss moves on a board they can we but we can't. E.g. 2:44:06 , 3:42:00 . Many other examples.

  5. Mishra has maturity beyond his years. Imagine if he played for India. Yet another youngster destined for greatness.

  6. Somehow in Round 3 chess failed to speak for itself

  7. Why are you putting Cheater Hans in the middle of your thumbnail photo? Disgraceful! I will no longer watch Saint Louis Chess Club events. GFY

  8. And still … the director uses the ridiculous fisheye lens at the tables. AMATEUR FAIL.

  9. Great commentary as usual, but it's really frustrating when Yasser is recapping moves but his analysis board is not on screen. Conversely, sometimes while they are analyzing a position we can see moves being played on the live board that they seem not to be aware of. Hopefully they can get the commentary and the video more on the same page.

  10. @SLCC thanks for the broadcast. It was very interesting and you all did a fantastic job! I so enjoy these tournaments!
