They all see that shit so fast, its unreal, it really is
It's nice to see some real excitement while playing chess. 😎
dumb repetitive loud music at random times, please god just don't
Trying to find just this game, without any spoonfeeding or highlights, is impossible to come by
Nihal def has the potential to be the next best speed chess player, totally stoked to see his future developments.
We are playing chess every morning and learning speed chess surely it will take sometime to get better. It makes you Crack your brains out. It's so mentally exhausting and stressful but rewarding.
Bro hess and daniel were such a nice team
RIP headphone victims
Magnus is a finish player he need to retired, grandpa can’t keep up no more
The fact that Magnus blundered the bishop anyway made it even more funny. Great minds think alike. 😄
Nihal defeated Anish and Ding and gave Hikaru a run for his money . But the highlight was definitely the final when the two titans of chess fought evenly matched with Hikaru a shade better .
6:41 NPC MOMENT
Should have included that Nihal resigned the next game vs Ding after the disconnect
7:01 cheese balls 😂😂😂
The jumpscare at the beginning 💀
My 4 fav Chess people in 1 video , Sensei Danya the Prophet, GM Hess, Gotham and Hikaru
His high-pitched squeal does not add to the action.
Blitz and rapid are so much fun to watch compared to classical games
This is why Hess and Naroditsky are my favourite commentary duo. They both, along with Levy, create such a HYPE atmosphere in these time crunches. Really makes for a brilliant viewer experience.
Edit: no shade at any of the commentators I didn't mention above!
I love Danya 😢
Danielevy commentary due gotta be the best.
GM Hess & Naroditsky are the GM's of Chess Casting. No offense so many GM's are TOTAL DUD when it comes to casting but these two are just on another level. It doesn't hurt the fact that're both native English speakers.
The sportsmanship from Magnus at the end even though Hikaru was bleeding the time off the clock shows how great of a player Magnus is, both on and off the board.
A fun-filled event!
6:40 has me crying. These guys r too good
"Holy Cheezeballz" Daniel Naroditsky 2023
9:00 How do knights move Magnus? 🤣🤣🤣
1:39:50 Let’s simply take a minute to appreciate how much hours and effort he put into the vids?
It's incredible, and I think they justify more than that.
I watched a lot of this live, and it was so exciting.
0:54 to skip unnecessarily long intro
9:20 – Hess: "If it is, Hikaru never wants to wake up" Just LOL🤣🤣
The boys commentary is top draw, even Hess was getting over excited.
Hess and Naroditsky saying "what a move" at the EXACT same time lol
The Nihal trick was so smooth and smart that i noticed it when Hess and Naroditsky screamed.
