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

  2. 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

  3. 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😭

  4. 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

  5. Is MVL a grandchild of Stephen Hawkins 🤔?

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

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

  9. 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

  11. 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

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

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

  14. Wesley- i had no chance to win

    Sike!!! 😂

  15. 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)

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

  17. 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

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

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

  20. 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.

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