  1. ❤Wesley, ❤Wesley he's our man 🎉. If he can't do it, no one Can! 😅

  2. these events really need a camera from upside the board

  3. ​He had 100,000 on the line you guys not 50,000. One of them is GAURANTEED a final match spot where the worst prize is 100,000. The loser of the semifinal is gauranteed 50,000. Winner 100,000, as that is at minimum the prize they will get for winning semifinal.

  4. Can someone please tell Tania about the first o in Abdusattorov

  5. I feel like caruana lost the moment he trade queens. It’s the main reason why magnus develops the bishop + after the C pawn then magnus move his rock to the C file. I’m 1200 elo but I love watching/ doing puzzles and watch other games. Great events guys 🙏

  6. Games were brilliant but Tania's fake accent😂😂😂

  7. Why wouldn't the organizers have water battles that do not pop and crack? Do you guys need some help?

  8. Can someone please explain to me how does bidding work in Armageddon. I thought they pick someone who chose little time to play with the black pieces. But now I'm seeing you have to bid for time and color as well, like how does the color chosing work to ne more specific?

  9. This is a great game format and great commentary, well done. Thank you

  10. As mentioned before, Fabi was already psychologically damaged after losing to Magnus in the previous WC final and this loss is unsurprising.

  11. The beauty of the commentary is such that you are tempted to think that they have memorized a script…the use of appropriate words are timely, accurate and just superb!👍💯

  12. Tania is very good for the sport commentating, has the right play by play commentating style that makes watching the games more entertaining. Just watch other chess commentating streams, can be very boring 😴

  13. Anyone know what time the next stream will be?

  14. Anyone know what time the next stream will be?

  15. My attempt to displace that Kaja comment from being thebmost liked. We love you Kaja. You're doing a great job.❤

  16. I love how the set does feel like a Canadian show. It looks like CBC National and George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight lolz.

  17. I love watching Chess like these level

  18. How could you not love Wesley? Such a sweet man

  19. Great chess…great commentary guys!

  20. I thought set 3 between nordibek and so will take place today so I shutdown after set 2 was over, but it's not really my fault it was 3 am here.

  21. Why is the live chat so negative? Like they have gotta be the most sad people ever lol.

  22. This commentary format will popularize Chess even more.

  23. Thank you for this tournament it got me playing again
