  1. Why are all 8 players playing in the finals? Why is the live board so small? Why is it not written how wins, points, and so on are calculated? Do the tournament players know how they can win in this tournament system? Why do I need to know which shack the tournament is being held in? Why are the players so sad, what have you done to them? Everyone knows that Magnus is the best player in the history of chess, why ask about it? Is this a fide rating transfusion tournament for Magnus? Hikaru didn't show up at the tournament because he refused to transfer his rating to Magnus? As well as other top players in the world? Why did you only analyze Magnus's games from the very beginning? Do you think Spassky or Fischer approved of such a tournament? Why is the best of two games in the final, and not the best of 10 games? 2 games in the finals and goat is it related?

  2. Man follow up this tournament and was so fun, i explained to my father who introduced me to chess and he was so excited to see the tournament with this format, hope this keep on going.

  3. What a great event! I really enjoyed the streams. Of course there is room for improvement – there always is. But Peter, Niklas and Tania did an amazing job. The venue looked great, lots of innovations aswell. What a treat to see players discuss their boards together in advance!
    A bit less Jan Büttner maybe – everything is highly appreciated, but the nobility doesnt need the spotlight. Chess is the key and his goal should be to bring it back to the spotlight. This will shine enough on him anyway.

  4. As a novice I find it weird to hear the announcers refer to the “king side” and “short castling” since it doesn’t really match what is on the board.

  5. great tournament, great coverage with great hosts
    keep on going!!!

  6. that was a super fun event to follow throughout the week thank you !!!

  7. Peter Leko is OK except for "moster" this or that, "absolutely" "masterpiece" and similar. But who selected this truly stupid woman? Constantly blabbing nonsense.

  8. Peter and every other chess pro: Let's nerd out endlessly over the positions in these other meaningless games.
    Everyone else: Just show Magnus.

  9. Peter is great. Otherwise they completely dropped the ball by switching to a meaningless game instead of remaining with Magnus-Fabi. They should have spent some of the prize money on programmers. A technical mess overall. Lots of improvement needed.

  10. what is the point in writing down moves w.r.t such a random position?

  11. That prize ceremony is such a disgrace 😂

  12. 4:21:38 who’s she? She is also wearing a nice dress during the ceremony

  13. These commentators are excellent. They are very informative and playful and you can tell they actually like each other. Well done, Peter, Tania, and Nicholas!

  14. I wish these two commentated every tournament

  15. peter is freaking awesome to listen to.

  16. Previously haven't enjoyed freestyle, but I'm converted, fascinating look forward to seeing more

  17. This whole event was a huge unexpected treat throughout.

  18. i like that they converse with each other when its over

  19. Greatest of all time Magnus Carlsen.
    Without a doubt.

  20. Loved the tournament, but also the best ceremony I've seen in any chess event.

  21. We need Hikaru, Pragg and Wesley next year!
