  • It is VERY NICE and APPRECIATED that, when they return to games they haven't looked at in awhile, they catch us up on the moves made. Other commentators don't always do this, which makes it harder to follow and far less enjoyable and instructive.

  • Haha! Both Carlsen and Caruana, an hour or so apart, both commented that Bxe3 was probably played before, but as a blunder, not a novelty 😄

  • I love the fact that Vlad and Judit are analyzing the games playing opposite colours. Adds a new dimension to the commentary

  • Awesome commentating by Kramnik and Judit. Kramnik's questions to Alireza were so clever and rational

  • Always nice to see black winning. Alireza is getting stronger day by day. And Armageddon concept is quite good for viewers. Also, top notch commentary by Judit and Kramnik.

  • Why is everybody around the world talking in an youtube accent, oxitonizing the phrases? Judit speaking like a teen youtuber. Irritating.

    Wagner KuhnWagner Kuhn6 ай мурун
    • @Upanishad The oxitonizing accent didn't exist before smart youtubers, so I very guess it began in youtube. Just don't know why everybody around the world speaks like this.

  • Love this announcing team. Judit made a hilarious joke about 9 minutes in, and Vlad has the voice that all loony liberals imagine when they think that the Russians hacked the 2016 US election. They hear Vlad in their heads... in their heads... zombie zombie zombie Queue the Cranberries...

    • Of course there will be a lot of "racists" supporting Trump when the definition of racism has become anything that does not fit the progressive left's agenda. Of course not everyone who recognizes structural inequalities will agree on the solutions, but if you want to create equality through economic opportunity and more competitive education instead of aborting black babies, and destroying any institution not invented by the woke mob, you're not just choosing a less effective solution, you're doing it because "racism*, and no amount of protesting or explanation matters because the left is full of talented mind-readers who know what you really want more than you do. Of course the point is to establish a power dynamic that prevents any questioning of the left's methods. That said, this was a really weird and out of the blue comment about Vlad's great voice.

      xdmxxdmx6 ай мурун
    • @Michael H Yes, racism and intolerance pushes people into all kinds of extreme positions. Such as supporting a would be dictator who winks at racism, takes children away from their parents and locks them up in cages, who lied about the virus leading to thousands more dying than need have, who continues to deny climate change and who won't commit to accepting the results of the election should he lose. But sure, feel free to convince yourself your reasons for supporting this monster are all noble.

    • @America Lost Well, I have a doctorate in physics. That's who I am. The Left is all about socialism, which is not only an economic model that always leads to national poverty, but Socialism attracts sociopaths like Joseph Stalin. This results in a gigantic murder rate in every country where it prevails, such as the USSR, Communist China, Cambodia, Cuba, etc. Enjoy being on the side of evil. That's where you are.

      Michael HMichael H6 ай мурун
    • And research in several journals has shown that Trump's largest voting blocks are high school drop outs, the intellectually challenged and racist. So enjoy being who you are.

  • This has to be the worst, the ugliest aesthetic I've ever seen for a tournament broadcast... Everything is so black, tombal, ashen and dismal. The board, the borders of the screen, the playing hall, the entire atmosphere, is more fitting for a funeral than a tourney... Unwatchable.

    • @ProEvolutionGamersHD it's not just the playing venue... it's the look chess24 chose for the board, for the borders of the screen... etc...
