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

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

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

  4. Dilep kumar yadav bhagiput paryagraj up 319121

  5. If nihal face pragghnanda he will be scared why

  6. One blunder from Magnus, Nihal nailed it

  7. 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.

  8. That's some nerve Nihal Sarin💥🔥👏
