  1. Grischuk !! The Thug Life is missing this time. Sad

  2. I have a feeling that Hikaru will win

  3. I think it's the first time I'm rooting for everyone in the field

  4. Hi, what a hell of a trailer, thanks!
    Does anyone know the music used, please ?
    It's not written in the description…

  5. Alireza is my vote for winner and making history

  6. Mamedyarov is the only strong player missing here. He almost edged out Magnus in Tata Steel and Norway Chess Touneys. I prefer him over Radjabov.

  7. I just want to see someone crushing their opponent with perfect Evans Gambit.

  8. I'm a beginner playing chess, but i think Nakamura is going to win.

  9. Bless the whole world Firouzja to setup the greatest match since Fischer – Spassky

  10. ''Hikaru is the most popular chess streamer'' bro never heard of Levy

  11. Ding Liren looks like the favorite for the candidates and Nakamura has the highest fanbase whereas Alireza is making the headlines and Nepo has the last chance to settle his past mistakes. so all in all it's gonna be a thrilling tournament this year. For me, I am gonna support Nakamura for the candidates.

  12. They have not all earned their spots. Karjakin earned a spot and it was given to somebody who did not earn it. FIDE should run chess, not be the thought police.

  13. I think, Nepo would emerge out at the winner, and I think Sergey is his second or maybe Grischuk

  14. What's happening in the Women's World Championships, never hear anything about them , such a chauvanist sport is Chess

  15. Talk about an all-star line-up! 🔥

  16. Only Fabi, Ding and Alireza can win… though all of us are hoping Hikaru would win

  17. buffffff I can't wait any longer. I feel like a kid waiting for Santa Claus to come the day before. 🙂

  18. I think any of them could win but I'd bet on Duda, Ding or Alireza

  19. This is the royal rumble to next year's wrestlemania

  20. 0:26. Correction: One spot is reserved for the loser of the previous WC match – who is not necessarily the previouos challenger. If Nepo had won the match, then Magnus would be in the candidates.

  21. Alireza has been hyped up for this tourny by Carlson himself. My vote goes towards him.
