  1. I'm not a fan of this commentary format. Go back to the two commentators with the analysis board, don't need a guy on a PowerPoint on top of everything

  2. Why does the live board take up 1/10 of the screen lol whould be the centerpiece

  3. It's not freestyle 960 or what ever, it's Fischer random you dolts.

  4. I hate the naming Freestyle chess. It is “Fisher random” or chess960. Please give the inventor his credit. Don’t invent name for something you haven’t found.

  5. The “pow wows” before the game just lead to almost everybody playing the same first few opening moves. Is it a team tournament or an individual one? Shouldn’t be allowed.

  6. Ding will be making history as the only WC to retain his title for the next few years and never to win any other tournaments (or even coming in last) during his reign.

  7. can someone tell me what's wrong with ding why isn't he chilling

  8. Love how Vincent and Nodirbek was the top 2 after day 1, and instead of showing their head-to-head 1st game, we had to watch Gukesh's game because that took Tania's eyes. Nice!

  9. Very cool event. Love Peter Leko. Good job today on production.

  10. Love how Magnus has dual use of his hair in mopping the floor.

  11. I'm here for the joy Pete felt when Fabi played b4, preventing him from getting smoked 2-0 by Tania on the opening moves prediction. Pure joy 😂

  12. Why was Wesley not invited since he was once Fischer random champion?

  13. I do find it funny how this event is presented as having invented Chess960.

  14. "Tomorrow, we want to see the real Ding" xD.

  15. At 3:23:24 you can hear the board analysis guy has gone to the toilet without turning off his microphone. It’s quite hilarious 😅. Reminds me of Frank Drebin in Naked Gun.
