  1. Awesome analysis. Sad this is the last instalment 🙁 you need to make more videos like this, very instructive

  2. Danny this has been a very instructive and entertaining series, I hope you make more in thefuture. edit: by the way whoever made the thumbnails did a great job

  3. !amazing! you managed to pass all the moves idea's so clear

  4. This guy is analyzing another game from his imagination wtf

  5. Is it just me or do top players get scared at Magnus that they don't want to play agressively? I mean, magnus played Nb8 which looked very passive, I'm sure a top GM would immediately do something agressive in order to punish black and Danny's analysis showed that black indeed could get into trouble… I think if Kasparov was in Magnus' age and if Magnus tried to do such passive things against someone as fearless and energetic as Kasparov, he'd get melted in a blink of an eye.

  6. please more games of M.C losses, less wins

  7. Always a bummer when players miss a really entertaining line.

  8. That damn performance…. 3000+ stuff is not for humans

  9. "So" many passes pawns I can't tell if its just a coincidence or a nice pun

  10. no need to play Rc1 and Cxd5. that made black to come in the game. actually the game favours white and there is nothing to praise Magnus for in this game, only that So made a lot of mistakes.

  11. Well done, people. Thanks and keep it up. I think you are making us all better and more engaged players.

  12. So played so weak he had advantage early on.

  13. Hey Danny, I've just started watching chess videos but I must say that I like your commentary very much. Hope you do more videos, Cheers!

  14. best chess commentator and analyst. Danny you to deliver instructive commentary while keeping it entertaining for such a fast game. Keep this format coming where we get to see the action and the chess moves very clearly. A+ !

  15. We need more instructive videos like this.

  16. carlsen have many boring style to win..

  17. Frøken Glattbarbert Stillas-sikkerhetsinspektør says:

    EXCELLENT commentary


  19. can anyone tell me, when does Carlsen start wearing glasses?

  20. 1:20. See, I never notice stuff like that in my games, and than four or five moves later, I want to move my pawn, and realize that I can't because that entire diagonal has been controlled for about five minutes.

  21. Plz show us live what's going on on the board… We don't care about what you think or would play. Much appreciated

  22. Why is their very little eye contact with chess players? especially after a handshake

  23. No one is even near Carlsen. Super Diamond Grandmaster class

  24. Thanks for the extra instructions, maybe a good suggestion would be that if you are in "simulation mode" the colour around the board would appear to make it more visual?
