  1. Amazing opponent Richard who ? , he had won after his queen French move and what calm and acumen in the chaotic end game. I just only wished that the players were more friendly to each other after the game ended. It's sad to see them only shake end and separate like mortal enemies.

  2. Don't tell me that commentator is live ? he is making better calls than both players.

  3. Amazing game and even better commentary 👏👏

  4. Such annoying commentary from the Indian 😂😂

  5. i defenitly wont go to india after this lol

  6. The bishop e4 on black was the worst move. He could have just took the bishop on c7 insted threatening the pawn on f7. Anyways… Nice G🎉

  7. When magnus makes his second queen and richard gives check by moving queen to e2, and magnus defends it by playing queen to g4, Richard could have captured the pawn on a6, that would have improved his position…
    (I maybe wrong, just started playing chess, feel free to correct me)

  8. I understand Magnus will be interviewed, yet I would like to hear Rapport as well.

  9. The commentary made this game so much better!

  10. 8:37 why dont magnus move his queen to c8 and give a checkmate as there is no way of escaping for black king (btw i am a newbie to this game)

  11. One of the best games I've ever seen! commentary was so brilliant too!! THX!!

  12. that was thrilling and i dont even play chess lol

  13. why does magnus take a queen with his pawn instead of just checkmating with the queen he alread have

  14. If you mute the annoying commentary you can watch the match and think only about the moves yourself.

  15. Bro said the world champion made a mistake 😂

  16. To be fair: Rapport beat himself with important blunders. Real pity, he played very well.

  17. I love your energetic commentary. Exciting and entertaining. Thank you!

  18. I hate when Magnus came to late. Why did he always do that ?? I don't like his atittude.

  19. More likely IMO, Carlsen managed to swindle Rapport in this game.

  20. 10:30 cant he just place queen on b7, after black moved queen to e3. Game over there.

  21. 8:28 Carlsen cut Rapport's pawn with wrong move, how can he cut horizontally from pawn

  22. I had to watch this in slow motion so I could keep up and I still had to go back to check some moves 😅

  23. this is really sad that even if you have magnus in mid game he is the flawless endgame player and you are not

  24. If chess ever becomes a popular international sport, make this guy a commentator, he makes it so exciting. 😂😁

  25. Excellent ChessBase India, for covering such legendary figures
