Pragg’s unbelievable opening choice | Vidit Gujrathi vs Praggnanandhaa | FIDE Candidates 2024

Praggnanandhaa’s opening choice was truly unbelievable in this game. This happened in round 3 of the FIDE Candidates 2024. Vidit Gujrathi playing with the white pieces faced the delayed Schliemann (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 f5?!?!) by Pragg. How did Vidit react to it? Did he manage to get an opening advantage or did things not work out in his favour? Check out the battle with the commentary by IM Sagar Shah.

  1. Sagar bhai can you also pin in game clock so that we could know what player would have thought depending on time its kind of helpful to know their pov
    My personal opinion

  2. Excellent game! Great commentary and editing!

  3. I love prediction before the players plays also it’s to improve the chess skills with his commemtry .🎉🎉

  4. the amount of time spent on the important moves by each players will be good to know. !!! Gg pragg 🎉❤

  5. I appreciate that the three Indian GM are not making teamplay!

  6. Indians cause trouble to Indians. It's happening everywhere 😅

  7. HOLY CRAP!!! I am too scared to play a move like F5 in a casual non-rated online game.. Pragg made a new fan in me yesterday!!!

  8. The tournament would have been much more interesting if instead of Abbas or Nakamura it was Abusattorov.

  9. Just curious, what is written on paper by players ? If they are moves, why they need it ?

  10. Were are grateful that youre not showing your baldass hair in these videos. Thankyou fr

  11. I didn't think about how his sister's play could affect his play… If she starts struggling he may feel her pain

  12. it is very disturbing when they are leaving seat again and again

  13. Why pragna have a White dot on forehead and vidit a Red???

  14. Sagar bhai clock bhi add kar do board ke sath 😅

  15. I know this is pragg's good game.. But it's against vidit & that too in candidates.. So I'm not liking it

  16. This guy's commentary is like Apu from The Simpsons!

  17. just a question what does F5 do? does it affect mostly vidit's prep i don't kinda understand a bit what's so suprising with F5
