  1. Hikaru, are you in the championship??
    Just curious.

  2. that big smile in the intro always makes my day

  3. 6:20 Rfe8 protects the bishop on e7 in the line 15. hxg4 Qxd4 16. Nd5?! Qxe3 17. Nxe7+ Rxe7 18. Rxe3 – now, black can take on d4!

  4. Awesome to get such deep insight from one of the top chess minds to really understand what is going on👌🏼

  5. Hello! 0:36 Originally Nepomniachtchi pronounce like "Nepomnia(sh (like "she"))i: Nepomniashi. Nepomniachtchi is wrong transliteration which sometimes occurs when russian people making a passport in Russia. "Sh" like she, instead of ugly "chtch".

  6. God doesn’t want anybody in hell because He loves us, but you must understand why we deserve hell and why those who refuse to live under His authority will go there. He gave us the law (Ten Commandments) not to make us righteous, but rather to show us our sin (Romans 3:20). We’re not sinners because we sin, but rather we sin because we’re sinners. Sin is the nature of our flesh that we are born with due to the sin of Adam in the garden. For someone to be justified before God they have to be sinless. We’ve all sinned (Romans 3:23), and the the law demands death for those who sin (Romans 6:23). God is righteous, so He must punish our sin, which is what He did through His Son Jesus Christ on the cross. Jesus is Holy and sinless, yet He received our sin when He died on the cross, so that we can be righteous before God (2 Corinthians 5:21). When He died on the cross, He said “It is finished” (John 19:30), which means He paid the full price for all of your sins (past, present, and future) to be forgiven. He was buried and rose again from the dead. God will forgive anybody who puts their full trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. We aren’t saved based on our good deeds, but only by the grace of God (Ephesians 2:8-9). His precious blood that He shed is the only reason why we can be forgiven of our sins (Hebrews 9:22). If you confess that Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised Him from the dead, then you’ll be saved (Romans 10:9). You are born-again with the Spirit of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17), and are not only legally justified before God, but also are accredited His righteous (Romans 4:24). Believers live for Christ now, so get to know Him through His Word. I recommend reading the book of Romans and the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), and watching Pastor Joseph Prince’s online sermons!

  7. You should be playing for world champion instead of covering it. Beta-Chad

  8. Hikaru, Re8 stops the Nd5 tactic by preventing Nxe7, or? Giri remembered Nd5 from his files, impressive.

  9. Rfe8 is he best move because it prophylacticly prevents Nd5 after Qxd4

  10. Recap from a top lelvel gm really hits different.

  11. Shootin from the hip, im betting the farm on: draw draw draw draw draw then nepo gets black in the armsgeddon and draws to become the goat

  12. Gotham chess need to up his game after this recap 😅

  13. When hikaru starts counting in spanish I thought I was jetlagging cause I just woke up 😂😂

  14. THAT SHOULD BE HIKARU PLAYING NEPO; IF MAGNUS WOULD HAVE DECLARED HIS RETIREMENT "BEFORE" THE NAKA-DING MATCH THEIR LAST GAME MAY HAVE BEEN WON BY HIKARU!
    I KNOW MAGNUS MAY WELL BE THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME, BUT HE HAS SUCH A SEEMINGLY SNARKY, EGOTISTICAL AND SELF-CENTERED APPROACH TO LIFE THAT I FIND IT HARD TO LIKE HIM.

  15. HIKARU must have been playing that match instead of Ding Liren! we all know that .

  16. A FAR AS I'M CONCERNED THE CHESS POWERS ALLOWED DING TO PLAY IN THE CANDIDATES BY ALLOWING HIS "HOME" (FIXED) 3 MONTH BEFORE PLAYING SCHEDULE TO GET ENOUGH GAMES TO MEET THEIR REQUIREMENTS… VERY "SUSPECT" GOINGS ON TO ME!
    CHINA SHOULD HAVE BEEN SANCTIONED FOR CREATING/CAUSING THE WORLDWIDE PANDEMIC AND THEIR POSSIBLE CANDIDATES SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ALLOWED!
    CHINA "IS" THE EVIL EMPIRE AND WHY NATIONS ACQUIESCE TO THEM IS IRRITATING!
    C'MON NEPO!

  17. it's so satisfying when hikaru counts the pawns in chinese or spanish.

  18. Hikaru should play in this WCC match instead of Ding. But I believe Hikaru will be stronger and get into candidates again

  19. I think Nepo lost an opportunity to win a game, I think he'll need it in the future 😀😀

  20. A recap from an actual Top 5 player is awesome.
    There's always a difference when an actual GM does the recap vs Other Players (some of whom mostly read lines from the engine).

  21. Hikaru reacting knowing he should be in this championship

  22. man this is the downside of classical… both players were away from the table most of the time that i fell asleep midway 😅

  23. I want to add at 6:06 that, after h3, the Bxh3 variation is probably the craziest: Not gxh3 (losing) but Rd1 Qg4 Bg3 Bg5 f4 Bg4 Nf5, absolutely crazy and I have no idea what is happening (only Stockfish does).

  24. Thanks for the commentary. I said this before: Hikaru is much better commenting other player's games. He takes his time to explain lines and more basic concepts. Well done!

  25. sadly no one cares about it. Not at all the fault of Ding/Nepo though.
