  1. Fabi – The pacer

    Nodirbek – The starer

    Hikaru – The headshaker

    Alireza – The finger twiddler

    Magnus – The camera blocker

    Wesley – The peeker

    MVL – ?

    Lazavik – ?

  2. Does anyone know if the dramatic music before and after each break is a specific song? Or is it custom?

  3. Hikaru played very well, outside of the armegeddons

  4. Commentaries are all rooted for Hikaru out of respect for him, but they forgot Nodirbek is a cyborg in chess

  5. Great stream. Tell David Howell I love him.

  6. Kramnik was right, hikaru exposed himself as a cheat

  7. The board and camera set ups were perfect for Alireza and Magnus game 2

    But then it sucked for Fabi and Wesley.

    The board needs to be front and center!

    The viewers are chess players, not people, magazine!

  8. Love this tournament. Production quality of the coverage is also excellent.

  9. Hikaru keep looking for mouse๐Ÿ˜น

  10. Is nodirbek in a gang or is that just acne?

  11. I'm very happy that Nodirbek made it through ๐Ÿ˜Š

  12. terrible performance by Hikaru in the last 3 days. Not just for his playing but also for his behaviour. Look around, no one else act like a sore b*** when they lose. He looked like a kid

  13. Why is the live board so small and camera on players massive lol

  14. This guy, James, is a moron. Heโ€™s not at the same level of the other, grandmaster commentators.

    Nice enough guy, but thereโ€™s no contact to his contribution

  15. Anything Hikaru losing is worth watching. Supposed to be professional, but can't hide being a sore loser. LFG!

  16. Levy is such a piece of shit โ€ฆ. Couldnโ€™t become good at chess and trying to commentate on super GM chess

  17. So cheesy and ridiculous that repetition from Hikaru. Dude, just trade the rook and apply pressure… but no, he repeats and allows Nodirbek a second chance for a better move ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚ Totally deserved win for the uzbek

  18. Nodirbek is slowlly but steadily becoming one of my favourite chess players. He's clinical like a surgeon.

  19. This format is great and made it possible for me to binge watch chess again. Eliminating the most frustrating element in chess, the majority of games ending in a draw, was a solid move from the creators of this format.

  20. I hate how Hikaru is not looking for a win at all. He's constantly aiming to draw. That's that mindset that cost him the game against Nordibek. 7:20:19 . I hate Hikaru's playstyle. He's so drawish. He used to outsmart his opponent and have brilliancies, now he's only hoping to draw against his fellow grandmasters. Considering that he held the title of best Blitz and one of the best in rapid. He's fallen way too off. As a fan I'm disappointed.๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž

  21. Hikaru is such a child. Bad loser, disrespectfull, go home play online dude. Grow up!

  22. I like when the commentators have no clue what they're talking about they just say the evaluation bar is wrong. Classic retard syndrome

  23. 7:36:08 hikaru didn't like to just say he didnt win so he changed it to lost the armageddon๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
