  1. All the commenters are amazing! David Howell and Robert Hess are very likeable and Leko analyzes the game really well. All of them do a great job of analyzing the games. Also big respect to the moderators in the chat. I could listen to these commenters for much longer 🙂

  2. Oh I feeel so so so so bad for Gukesh, come back stronger

  3. Gukesh needs to learn how to play the percentage game – its fine to take chances but he takes one too many. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

  4. @3:48:00 chess has no GMs, if you have good memory, you can beat the best, what a shame how chess became, Bobby Fischer knew this is going to happen.

  5. With that vest I'm calling him "Ian Solo"

  6. Fabiano Caruana is the great player or tournament os candidates in 2024.

  7. Not to be disrespectful, just asking, why do these tournaments usually have a 'wildcard' or 'weaker' player? (N Abasov)

  8. David Howell is the best chess commentator… he is a top 100 player unlike Danya or Hess, but also has conversational / explanation skills that Danya and Hess have.

    Leko is great because he speaks softly, doesn’t get in the way, and provides great analysis of a former top 10 player.

  9. Alireza is like, "I knew there was a reason I was playing blitz all night in my Gucci pajamas."

  10. How to properly watch the Candidates:
    1. Zoom in to the actual tournament
    2. Turn the volume all the way down

  11. I am so happy to see AliReza win. The way he looked so dejected after his loss to Vidit. But now Gukesh looked even more forlorn. Hope he bounces back with a win.

  12. oh man it was so satisfying seeing alireza win after all the haters and the doubters what an attacking masterclass.

  13. Wow. Been rly critical of Alireza this tournament, but he performed so well today

  14. 3:11:13 Just watched the game you(David and leko) recommend Leki vs Kramnik.
    Its just amazing game.

  15. Alireza genius strat:
    1. practice 200 bullet games per day.
    2. run low on time to make classic = bullet.
    3. profit.

    Love the games this year!

  16. Alireza brought that shit out of fire, reminded me of Leon Edwards against kumaru Usman. Even the commentators in both cases were saying that it was a completely lost cause but they prove them wrong

  17. lol @ Hess @ 3:52 "is there any world in which Gukesh doesnt win this game?"… well there is ONE WORLD where that doesnt happen… lmao

  18. Hikaru facial expressions didn’t seem like they came from someone that literally doesn’t care.

  19. Tbh Gukesh played kinda strange in time trouble. Can’t expect to push pawns a4 a5 a6 without any considerations about own king safety and hope to win.
    Anand would’ve won this in his youth, he had that killer instinct Gukesh still lacks.
