  1. The turning point of the game was when Pragg used “Remove the Coat” gambit.

  2. Going for Pirc/Modern against Pragg, was a poor choice considering he's been crushing it since his Jr's career

  3. That's why it's not good to play chess all the time

  4. Can I ask you guys, what's on pragg's forehead? And what is the meaning of that, thanks in advance.

  5. Hikaru openinge rak standar,e GM ogh😂

  6. Sagar bhai, without your passionate commentary, we can't figure out anything. Keep up the great work team @chessbaseindia.

  7. 4:23 why didn't he take the bishop with the Rook instead of the knight? Wouldn't that guarantee that he takes queen without losing his queen in the next moves? Someone pls explain.

  8. I think Hikaru just played a shitty game. Not up to his standards

  9. Please add commentary for the game… please.🙏

  10. Happy birthday prag my first copy move of you in last 3 year

  11. wow hikaru is helpless in front of pragga 😊😊👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  12. great victory by Indian GM, I know some folks in other parts of the world may be unhappy and jealous.

  13. Hikaru gave his best against the new Alien from India

  14. why didnt prag rook d7 at 5:00 instead? isnt it just a free queen?

  15. Silently froze king Hikaru

  16. Congratulation Pragg for this Insane match up between Hikaru Nakamura most respected SGM's Great Game🔥😎

  17. Naka got MANHANDLED! All that Damn Blitz has RUINED his game. He would be DOMINATING the World of Chess if he laid low for a year or so and SERIOUSLY IMPROVED HIS ENDGAME KNOWLEDGE. I have beaten him in the past even though he was about 8. I saw the SAME FLAWS in his game that I see today. I think he's a bonafide JERK so I couldn't care less about him though. 😒

  18. ❤ fantastic play by Pragg. Sagar's adrenaline filled commentary would have been an icing on the cake. Well done Pragg. All the very best ❤❤❤❤❤

  19. We discovered this game for no reason ha 🔥💪🏼✊🏼🚩🕉️🇮🇳
    Way to go lad🚀🚀🚀

  20. The world is not ready to handle Indian Chess Prodigies ( pragg , gukesh , nihal , etc etc ) thanks to Vishy Anand 🇮🇳

  21. Praggna means 'conciousness', Ananda means 'bliss'. If you are Concious you can be blissful, only Concious one can beat intellect like Hikaru.

  22. The step of Prag is more efektive than Nikamura,'s.

  23. Si pragg.pecatur..sederhana fakir..itu pakai karet .gelang….maba jam tangan mewah , berapa pendapatan nya sll terdepan di tiap kejuaraan….,

  24. 🧐👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿

  25. Calou o Falador ! Perdeu as 2 Chora que dói Menos….

  26. Pragg even declined a draw at 05:04 when it would've secured him the match immediately. Of course he's totally winning but it still says a lot about his confidence. There was nothing really to gain except for a few rapid elo points.

  27. Simple win. Fearless attacking up to the end.

  28. Sharp attack by Prag form start relentless.🙌👍

  29. Undoubtedly praggnanda next world champion

  30. openings like Pirc has no place in modern theoretical lines.. what black has achieved with e5 pawn blocking his g7 bishop and the light bishop at d7- whole comedy of the game, – when you are not in lines- you should ask some questions Naka- you are a monster blitzer already ???

  31. Pragg has always been one of my favorites
