  1. They're thrusting (pawns) and Blowing each other (off the board). And sliding their pieces into each other back ranks.

  2. Great job by Magnus beating Fabi. Magnus will beat So in the finals.

  3. To promote the most frivolous and insignificant activities with the utmost confidence and arrogance is… Danny Rench.

  4. They are blowing each other (off the board) and thrusting each other (pawns). as they pushed their pieces into one another's rear ranks.

  5. We are with you, Nodirbek. Brother, good luck!

  6. deep analysis of that Indian woman about mate in one after "black Knight takes Knight on g4" (So vs Abdusattorov, first game, after move 14), served with that screeching voice of hers – what a pleasure!

  7. Nodirbek should play chess boxing. Abdusattorov vs Canty odds?

  8. Shades of Fischer-Spassky with the chairs …

  9. You guys are so incredibly skilled at handing off and setting each other up and with such a technical subject — and so fast. Graat job. A joy to watch. Still, it is disheartening for us mere mortals to watch you guys instantly sum up positions and key variations etc. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Please do not talk loudly over the players when they are speaking about anything, e.g. when Wesley was talking to Danny I think when he came in with Wesley with plushy. I wish I knew what he said. That is more important than anything at that moment — especially when the commentator is just rehearsing what has been said before.

  11. Loved the Danny vs Wesley blindfolded blitz game lol, great editing too

  12. chess is confusing, ha. it's a mess to explain

  13. Wesley so vs magnus i cant wait this final

  14. I wanted Nodirbek to win but he wasted too much time

  15. Congrats Wesley God bless you more๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

  16. carlsen is right after all. so vs carlsen in the finals ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  17. As someone who is more of a chess fan than player, this is the best in-game chess commentary that I've ever seen.

  18. โคWesley, โคWesley he's our man ๐ŸŽ‰. If he can't do it, no one Can! ๐Ÿ˜…

  19. these events really need a camera from upside the board

  20. โ€‹He had 100,000 on the line you guys not 50,000. One of them is GAURANTEED a final match spot where the worst prize is 100,000. The loser of the semifinal is gauranteed 50,000. Winner 100,000, as that is at minimum the prize they will get for winning semifinal.

  21. Can someone please tell Tania about the first o in Abdusattorov

  22. I feel like caruana lost the moment he trade queens. Itโ€™s the main reason why magnus develops the bishop + after the C pawn then magnus move his rock to the C file. Iโ€™m 1200 elo but I love watching/ doing puzzles and watch other games. Great events guys ๐Ÿ™

  23. Games were brilliant but Tania's fake accent๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  24. Why wouldn't the organizers have water battles that do not pop and crack? Do you guys need some help?

  25. The goat strikes again!!!๐ŸŽ‰

  26. Can someone please explain to me how does bidding work in Armageddon. I thought they pick someone who chose little time to play with the black pieces. But now I'm seeing you have to bid for time and color as well, like how does the color chosing work to ne more specific?

  27. This is a great game format and great commentary, well done. Thank you

  28. As mentioned before, Fabi was already psychologically damaged after losing to Magnus in the previous WC final and this loss is unsurprising.

  29. The beauty of the commentary is such that you are tempted to think that they have memorized a scriptโ€ฆthe use of appropriate words are timely, accurate and just superb!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ฏ

  30. Tania is very good for the sport commentating, has the right play by play commentating style that makes watching the games more entertaining. Just watch other chess commentating streams, can be very boring ๐Ÿ˜ด

  31. Anyone know what time the next stream will be?

  32. Anyone know what time the next stream will be?

  33. My attempt to displace that Kaja comment from being thebmost liked. We love you Kaja. You're doing a great job.โค

  34. I love how the set does feel like a Canadian show. It looks like CBC National and George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight lolz.
