  1. WEISSENHAUS…wow, they know what they are doing…

  2. Abdusattorov is always on top nowadays on tournaments, he almost won the TataSteel, I hope he'll win this one🤞 Rooting for my GOAT Nordibek!!

  3. What the hell is wrong with Ding?? is the world champion supposed to not win a single game????
    honestly he should drop off his title to a real word champion. this game format was just a proof that the losers so called GMs are nothing but a memorizers for games database, once you get them out of theory, they blunder at move 2…

  4. Best part was Peter Leko rubbing his hands out of excitement @38:53 when Alireza played 3. Nh3

  5. Chess 960 is so awesome ! Hope there are more events like this

  6. why are some of the pieces starting on different squares?

  7. Alireza cheated using a device hidden in those fancy buttons.

  8. Why is it necessary for the players of each color to "discuss" the opening position before the games? Why can't they just start their own games independently, without "colluding" with the other players? Wouldn't that make each player's game that much more unique and special?

  9. someone tell the indian girl her mic is on her clothes, stop talking with her hands

  10. IMHO, the traditional chess opening names, e.g., English, Spanish, French, Sicilian, Petroff, etc., simply DO NOT apply to Fischer Random. They only use those opening names because we're familiar with them, not because the same opening theory applies in Fischer Random.

  11. Glad that they left Levon alone in the analysis and he was the only one to get something with black. Maybe they'll join next time 😂

  12. the inimitable bobby fisher you saw what he created!!!

  13. Has Ding always been blinking that rapidly or is it morse code?
