  1. Rensch's old man grumpiness showing through by hour 7 lmao

  2. I just watched 3 hours of chess. I already knew the outcome and still enjoyed it. Great job!

  3. Really nice commentary from both of them, especially Naroditsky is killing it lately!

  4. This was so much fun to watch! I'll be happy if the main event is half as exciting..

  5. Nikolas❤️
    The best 😍♟👏🏻

  6. Kramnik, Nepomniatchi, Dubov – Russian flags, and Andreikin – International flag? 2 Gukesh D, one from India and another with International flag?

  7. Neither of you is good at impressions. It's okay. We still like your analysis.

  8. Why is Firouzja crammed down our throat? His ratings are fake and he is likely 26 yrs old. Professional commentators would not sap for Firouzja. Bias is over the top for Firouzja. I think he is using an engine at the game endings. Watch his eyes during the first game in second stage – to the right, watching a computer screen. Who is watching the players for cheating? Maybe otb isn't so easy to cheat, so F. Wont play otb. Who was paid off?

  9. CompressWealthDivide EconomicProsperity says:

    The Ditz and Monkey Wrench – this ought to be good. Who will show the most lame humor?

  10. CompressWealthDivide EconomicProsperity says:

    3:15:00 Geez, I knew it. Ditz and Monkey Wrench make for a great duo for lame humor.

  11. CompressWealthDivide EconomicProsperity says:

    With a mistake, in the B+N ending, a checkmate can also occur on the side.

  12. CompressWealthDivide EconomicProsperity says:

    4:15:51 Black way ahead…what does the engine say to move for black?

  13. All this rigged matchups to make sure the top 5 ends up fighting each other in semis 😴

  14. Innovative and inclusive format, and commentary by two legends

  15. I like this poker style prize format a lot. It is a good feeling to end in the money even if you don't win.

  16. It might be a debate wether chess is a sport, but there is no debate that Danya and Danya are the best commentator pair in all broadcasting, including professional sports. Well, maybe Danya and Hess…

  17. You may have felt exhausted at the end, but your energy level stayed high throughout. Thanks for excellent commentary.

  18. Hi the Duke here🥕🥕 CARLSEN doesn’t have to play?

  19. Y’all bought the best chess coverage in the world and turned it into this? Incredibly disappointing. Unwatchable.

  20. I love danya but I really miss David Howell and jovanka and that studio…

  21. What happened? Caruana had won 2 games and Hikaru had won 1 and lost 1 when I went to bed. Hikaru is truly a magician!

  22. This is bad chess really, extremely imprecise time control, I hate the armaggedons too. It's just a swindle fest. 15 min and more increment. ? More rapid games.

  23. Horrible format
    16 players one was way better

  24. Where do these ratings come from ? Firouzja has a 2745 FIDE rapid rating (which Chess24 correctly shows on their site) and a 2904 blitz rating; not 2483.

  25. Naroditsky, ничья is not "no one", it means "does not belong to anyone". The question Чей? in English is Whose?, not Who?

  26. Commentary gets away from chess too easily when Danny is commentating with Daniel … just too similar in personality.

    I like tania or leko paired with nariditsky

  27. Everyone is crying in the comments. I like the new format.
