  6. Commentary is really avg in this video. Usually it's not this bad.

  7. Notice that from time-to-time both players would look at the camera. See, they could hear the announcer's voice.

  8. Ian, he is so humble, his smile is constant, whenever he resigns…he never treats his opponents frustrated…If Ian played the upcoming world chess championship, I want him to win.. he is deserving
