  1. That's some nerve Nihal Sarin💥🔥👏

  2. FYI they already played against each other in 2017 PRO League Group Stage.

  3. Indian chess players are true gentlemen, lots of love and respect from Pakistan❤

  4. Sarin is very lovable and respecful and so cute!!

  5. Surprising that Magnus missed Qxg5. Seemed pretty obvious there especially with more time.

  6. I have a question?…
    Is…draw for black…(it's a win for black)… what's your opinion?
    Comment down 👇😊

  7. What a resistance and full understanding of the game by Nihal.

  8. Look at the upper right screen. Somebody's ass is distracting

  9. Why Arjun nd nihal not playing classical,any update on them?

  10. I remembered the guy who played bullet with nihal sarin and beat his chest like king-kong

  11. I feel bad about the incompleteness of these games. Just because of the clock, we dont have a good result.

  12. It goes from both players making thoughtful moves, to a just zap zap zap it goes anywhere scenario

  13. Magnus should have played rook to d6 attacking the knight and if it moves he could have taken the rook by his king but was a difficult move to find for the goat!!

  14. I can play the guitar better than Magnus, but he is probably a better chess player than I am

  15. its so annoying to comment chess match as it is final of world cup…

  16. Nihal is as stubborn as magnus. Terrific matchup.

  17. Do you know what makes this video interesting? The commentator turn this chess into moto gp

  18. @4:15 this man said "oh no magnes blunders, this is actually a good move though because.." 😂

  19. Your commentary makes it so exciting!

  20. In end look how nihal looks at magnus 😂

  21. unbelievable game, I absolutely love your skills to comment the match

  22. This kid is is the calm beast. Gonna be huge.

  23. Uh pretend like you watching the video and guessing the moves but must have watch the video many times

  24. dude seriously!
    Ur commentary is overrated & hyped
    I felt it annoying..

  25. This guy should commentate on baseball or golf…those sports might actually become exciting?!

  26. nihal be like –
    miya miya miya bhai 🔥 apan ko bolte

  27. Dilep kumar yadav bhagiput paryagraj up 319121

  28. If nihal face pragghnanda he will be scared why

  29. One blunder from Magnus, Nihal nailed it

  30. 6:38 why not here black f2
    And take white pawn.
    And if then white takes black knight then black rook f1 and check to king if white would block it by d1 then black rook d1 and take the knight and check and mate the black king.

    GAME OVER . Nihal would have won the game.
    I mean if white one could see it coming before taking black kinght with his rook then obviously he could avoid being cheack mate but even in that situation black would be in extremely advantageous position.

    Am i missing something here? Can somebody explain me.
