  1. Nepo got inspired by watching Gotham 's how to lose at chess series. 💀

  2. One bad thing about this format is that The quality of chess has decreased
    Last world championship had that quality factor
    this has become like a blitz championship.

  3. That f5 move fabbi jast said that before ian moves. Thats misterios for me

  4. At one point the chat was full of Ian fans making fun of ding. How the turn tables

  5. It's CLEAR that Nepo hasn't learned his lesson yet regarding fast play and not fully calculating positions. We saw this weakness when he played against Carlsen, and we're seeing again here against Liren.

  6. WHAT?? Looks like they were playing chess but the eval was playing tennis.

  7. This game is a solid proof 1 of thing: There are no grand masters, there is only those who prepared and remember up to move 20+, and those who did not. once you're out of prep and the position is complex, you play no better than a 1600-1800 player

  8. I thought ding was gonna lose since he was down early,went to have dinner and bam come back let's go DING

  9. The 6th time commentators are saying "it's over" after a win. 🙂

  10. They managed to make the shadow of Carlsen longer in this series.

  11. This is, if anything, a reminder of whom is the best chess player in the world, by far. And he's not playing.

  12. Man Tania was such a disrespectful comentator in this one. I am usually OK with her commenting, but her reaction to the move f5 was very unprofessional. It's chess, you don't have to yell stupid phrases like you would do in other sports while commenting…

  13. Levy's next video title dinggggggggggg dingdingdingding

  14. Ladies and Gentlemen, Gotham gonna have a field day…

  15. Ding is lucky! but he has losed a game he shouldn't lose, so now it is even again. Come on Ding!

  16. I know I never played for stakes this high but boy do I know what Ian was feeling at the end. Probably a hundred different variations of “god, how did i miss that?” or “I’m so dumb” or “F, I had it” lol.

    Chess hurts man.

  17. Ian didn’t learn from last championship to utilize his time ? Magnus called out his quick plays, not a single person in his camp told him to use up his time ? why is he rushing a winning position

  18. I really like Fabi's way of commentating. He's very honest and humble. His insights lean more toward the players' perspectives. 3:24:24 Even though Ding blundered, he was looking at the most natural move, not just only at the engine's best move. Btw, Fabi if you're reading this, kindly crank your mic's volume up.😅

  19. at this point im convinced that a WCC game can only be 2 out of the following 3:

    entertaining, decisive, accurate (a WCC-worthy accurate, not your usual super GM accurate)

    the last game that checked all 3 was probably game 6 of the last WCC

  20. Ding holding it in. Trying so hard not to smile and smirk lol

  21. "He's getting back to his true self, playing poor moves quickly"

  22. I have to admit that though I’m cheering for Ding to become world champion, seeing Nepos reaction and his face when he realizes he had made a terrible blunder is crushing. He fell on the same sword that Ding fell on twice.
