  1. I think the only person could have found D5 move or the reason is Alireza Firouzjs

  2. D5. Never to be forgotten. What a ridiculous 10-steps ahead-of-everyone move.

  3. "I came. I saw nothing. And I conquered."
    — Anish Giri

  4. Finally i can play london without getting Bullied

  5. Should they have to go until black pieces wins?

  6. You’d wanna go for the W with white knowing even if you draw you still get a game 7 but if your black the likelihood of winning in game 7 isn’t good but drawing is so go for the W in game 6

  7. Why are they taking their coats off if they’re cold ?

  8. ‘Good knight bad bishop’ sounds like a buddy comedy

  9. Maybe they should outline the black pieces in white like they do the white pieces in black so we can see them better

  10. Can someone explain what happens if black plays pawn to A1 and makes a queen?

  11. После Фс7 Аниш не видел Фf7?
    Сразу виден мат ладьей с f8.

  12. 2:10:00 the mirrored knights on the left are protected by a P and Q respectively creating an interesting dynamic

  13. at 4:30:45 what happens when the bishop at b1 takes the knight at g6 how the mating pattern continues?

  14. I know they are literal legends and my reasoning might be bad here. But doesn’t Queen promotion on a1 work for black after Qf7?

  15. This is why chess is more than memorization. True artistry!

  16. I struggle to get my puzzle rating above 2250 because I just don't see the lines as deep as I used to when I was much younger. Had Ding's mastery at the end been a puzzle, I definitely would have fumbled it. Absolutely brilliant!

  17. PETITION TO BAR COMMENTATORS FROM CONSULTING ENGINES. It spoils the moment, the splendor of a once in a lifetime brilliancy.

  18. While I do like the changeup of having someone else besides Danya in the commentating mix, I'd never seen JUST Anish and David together, without at least a 3rd party, so wasn't sure about how well the personalities would mesh, but they were absolutely brilliant. Both the chess analysis/commentary and their senses of humor are absolutely totally winning.

  19. Beautiful game in a lot of ways. Ian giving Ding an appreciative/congratulatory smile as he resigns. Class. Mad respect to both players.

  20. 4:17:00 Ding's immortal? What do you guys think. Nobody saw that mate 7 moves in advance except Ding. Not Ian. Not Anish. Not Fabi. NOBODY. Every spectator was thinking, "d5??? What the hell is d5?" This must be Ding's immortal.

  21. 2 pawns at d5 and h5 are unbelievable, incredible setup from Ding

  22. you would show your faces less and more board 😠

  23. Ding pulled himself together, now the match will go according to a different scenario 👍

  24. Reminds me bit of thw Spassky-Fischer Game-6 scene in movie Pawn Sacrifice where Spassky smiles and gives a standing ovation

  25. Anish Giri would always take a draw😢😂

  26. Ians smile when he resigned was so forced

  27. D5 is a genius move beyond imagination.

  28. The evaluation bar is dancing in the move of "d5" stockfich is confused 🤣
