World no.3 Nakamura’s provocative opening choice against world no.2 Caruana | FIDE Candidates 2024

What a round 1 clash we had on our hands at the FIDE Candidates 2024. We saw the all-American clash between two of the favourites of the event – Fabiano Caruana and Hikaru Nakamura. Fabi’s rating of 2803 and Nakamura’s rating of 2789 make them world no.2 and 3 respectively. When Caruana played e4, Hikaru responded with a lesser known Sicilian. Check out this game with the commentary by IM Sagar Shah.

  5. Sir which Chanel live given sir

  6. your commentry is worst, telling us things before they even happen ruining the suspense…very bad….do commentary like you are watching it for the first time

  7. Long live Sagar Shah! Ideal coverage as always, thank you!

  8. I love that all modern chess games are 20 minutes or less.

  9. I hope Hikaru Nakamura wins the Candidates tournament.

  10. What if 2 of 3 Indians wants to promote 1 Indians and they lost intentially against him and helps to win the candidates.
    Suppose vidit and gukesh intentially lost their game against pragg and pragg able to even draw their remaining game then pragg definitely have huge chance to play against ding lren in world championship match.
