Clash of Indian titans! | Praggnanadhaa vs Vidit | PSPB 2023 | Commentary by IM Sagar Shah

Praggnanandhaa and Vidit Gujrathi are two of the best players in the country right now. In order to see them face off each other one would often have to travel to some super tournament happening in Europe. However, we were lucky to catch the two super strong GMs face off against each other in Pune for the finals of the Inter-PSPB Championships 2023. Pragg had the white pieces (representing IOCL) and Vidit was black (representing ONGC). What made this game even more important was the fact that the scores were tied at 1.5-1.5 with everything boiling down to this final encounter. Check out what happened in this tense battle as IM Sagar Shah takes you through the little nuances with his commentary.

  1. Vidit could have played a 50 move draw

  2. Interesting that both team sponsors are big oil and gas companies.

  3. El mejor comentarista de ajedrez del mundo 😎

  4. Actually its a drw game vidith miscalculated

  5. The way of praggy arranges the opponent's coin at the end, 15:53 shows his love of chess even after winning title!

  6. It could have be a draw he don't had to resign

  7. why is the commentator making his own moves on the floating board? its annoying

  8. Vidith lost when he missed Prgs Queen by simply bringing his rook at 12:38 when prags queen was before his king.
    That must have been a winning move

  9. I am new to chess. Can some one tell me how could Vidit castle after his King was checked?

  10. my only & only one problem in chess players in India,
    Praggna always stalks like this to all players it really feel weird, that he thinks opponent will not understand his step & strategies, & he starts watching opponents face … UP DOWN UP DOWN

  11. Why not handshake in the end.

  12. Always praggnandha best 🔥❤️♟️♟️

  13. At the end Vidit going alone is so heartBreaking 💔


  15. Sagar shah commentary is mind blowing

  16. Commentary is so disgusting man tbh.

  17. And then pragg won silver in world championship

  18. The sacrifice of queen by pragg is very good move that he sacrifice his queen, and also that take vidit queen, and the he has a chance to revive his queen

  19. Besop check the king of vidit 1 ileage move are seen you like now

  20. Vidit has great personality… One day he will become the world chapmpion…love frm Bangladesh…. Vidit when u become the wold champion thanks me…

  21. Praggna is really genius, this kid is going somewhere. Congratulations 🎉🎉

  22. Jitne pe vi dukh hai ….harne pe vi dukh hai….apne ke sath ladai karne pe haro ya jeeto dukh hi milta hai sirf😔💔😢

  23. That camera in intro just look like Rook 🐘

  24. i have a doubt.can anyone explain to me.
    vidit has chance to tie the game why did he resigned.when pragg going to take vidit pawn.vidit can take pragg both pawns know.
    can anyone exlain to me.

  25. 💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞

  26. It was a battle of south vs north.
    And south eventually won which was very predictive 😂

  27. Do you know pragnanda is also known as rajnigandha❤❤❤❤❤❤

  28. Wow what a great match up. 👏 I really enjoyed that. Great work guys

  29. 14:42 karthikeyan murli who defeated magnus carlsen in classical chess.

  30. Chess god present Magnus but pragg future

  31. Who is here after both Pragg and vidit qualified for Candidates!🎉🎉🎉 champions!❤ Great one Pragg!!

  32. 10:07 if he took queen hy knight , It 'll be check for black king and he cant able to move black rook on c1… after checked black king moves close black rook …

  33. Knight sacrifice at 12:23 was an awesome move by Pragg. White knight is not defended but it forces the queen to take it, which would leave black pawn at g5 undefended eventually giving Pragg the 2nd pawn lead just before entering the end game.
    Tragic to see Vidit leave alone in despair after playing such an amazing game.
