  1. What an honour to be living in this time, where we can see the GOATs of chess play live…

  2. Why does hikaru destroys all these players online with headphones and now he's been crushed by everyone OTB .

  3. Strange thing happened. Usually I see errors and think hard should I mention them in a comment or not. Toronto streams are flawless.
    Worst thing being slow camera guy to follow time troubles. Could improve angle too.

  4. Yoooo hahahahahaha Gotham throwing in a cheeky wink in the post match interview is pure legendary😂😂😂 like what is he even doing there?🤣 5:44:45

  5. Really missing Peter Leko's commentary 🙁

  6. Wesley is the most likeable guy in the world, I mean, his social skills and humbleness are even more impressive than his games lol

  7. Hikaru with the thats so raven visions!!! 🤣🤣🤣

  8. Wesley So all the way 💪💪💪🇺🇸🇵🇭🇺🇸🇵🇭🇺🇸🇵🇭

  9. Thank you for staggered starts to allow us to see enough of each armageddon.

  10. wow Kramnik really caught Hikaru! this confirms Hikaru been cheating this whole time! 🤔how long? 4-5 years??
    no wander he needs bot in his headphone all the time

  11. Magnus loves watching Hikaru melt down. So satisfying to see how this is all playing out. Such a classy and humble group of goats and then one big cry baby.
    Better broadcasting today. Would still like to see all 4 boards on screen while they cover the featured game instead of just eval bars. But it’s obviously improving otherwise

  12. Hikaru is only good at tricking opponents in bullet 🤣

  13. Just looking at how Hikaru conducts himself compared to every other player, it's truly mind-boggling how he has amassed such a large following.

  14. What an insane Armageddon match from Wesley. He went straight for Magnus's throat in that one.

  15. Love the coverage but I hate the switch of the view at the end of each game. I end up watching the tiny screen in the corner, not the players

  16. I keep seeing these videos in my feed and rhe titles and thumbnail are spoilers cause i haven't seen the reults of round 1😭

  17. People have so much recency bias it’s insane 🤦‍♂️ Hikaru won so much this year, his last event he qualified for the candidates, rapid is very different to classical and blitz. Stupid couch losers

  18. Is MVL a grandchild of Stephen Hawkins 🤔?

  19. Why do all these guys seem like they're on the spectrum? It's bizarre. Is there a great chess player that's just a normal person? As in doesn't seem socially deficient, strange or have temper tantrums like a child?

  20. The best chess games I've ever seen! Forced to win against the worlds no. 1, demolished your opponent in a very spectacular series of sacrifices and brilliancy. Wesley needs to hire coaches to prepare him.

  21. Wesley game against Magnus was a MASTERPIECE!!!!

  22. Kramnik is in happy agony on Hikaru's game quality)))

    • MVL advances if…he wins OR Denis loses
    • Firouzja advances if…he wins OR Hikaru loses
    • Hikaru advances if…he wins AND Firouja loses
    • Denis advances if…he wins AND MVL loses

  24. The only Super GM's in chess who compared to Super GM Magnus Carlsen in terms of brilliancy, advance analysis, tactical chess techniques and tricks is Super GM Wesley So!!! Wesley So is much more accurate and much better than Super GM Ding Liren thats the fact!!! 🇵🇭🇺🇸

    To GOD be the Glory

  25. Hi karo love u brov no worry candidate is still on the table

  26. That boy clicking way too loud and he knows it

  27. Wesley- i had no chance to win

    Sike!!! 😂

  28. Alireza is going home?😮
    He played only 1 gg against Nordibek : not enough to stay with the big guys😢
    Fashion'boy is no more the chess prodigy who reached the candidates and 2800 very quickly.
    Maybe he wasn't enough mature to manage all pression on him…(Magnus made a lot of pression on him)

  29. Why you guys don't shut your mouth when necessary we want to here conversation between players (e.g. hikaru&caruana)

  30. I feel with only two matches per game, the players are more likely to draw and go to armageddon then try for a decisive game – I liked the four game matches better, allowed for taking more risks because you have more games to play

  31. Wow, I’m a big Magnus fan, but seeing Wesley clap Magnus was crazy! I’m now a Wesley So fan

  32. Wow, Wesley has not been human this tournament. I’m now a massive Wesley fan

  33. I don't like the Hikaru witch hunt, first of all we don't have proof for any wrongdoing, secondly he titled in this tournament. I don't like his character but that doesn't mean that we can assume anything without proof. It must have been very tough for him, for the last few weeks. If there is any proof I will be the first to condemn him.

  34. Wesley is fantastic, on and off the board! Love his solid play normally but this play was next level! So fun to watch.
