  1. no suprise magnus beats everyone i mean he has a university program engine cesi analyzing his games, isn't that unfair ?

  2. A non scripted show that I watched 2:ice already. For Hours!!! Huge thanks for producing chess for everyone!

  3. Comments are %99 of Wesley being a gentleman, which is correct, great games by him, but also:
    Congrats to the GOAT who won with BLACK pieces and then with white pieces on demand when everyone doubted, and who now won 2 tournaments in a row.

  4. Well Apha zero is moore scary then not only depending on humans, it is actually one AI to rule them all.

  5. There must be something intrinsically wrong with the game of chess, if the outcome of a two-day furious fight is decided in one single Armageddon game. I dont complain about the players of course, they do their job well… Although Wesley´s decision in the last rapid game was weird, even Magnus didnt approve…

  6. Congratulations to both players for giving us such a great show. It takes two to dance. Magnus is a great champion and Wesley is a great player and a very good person. Thanks to the entire team for broadcasting a very good cover of the entire tournament.

  7. Great play from Magnus, beautifully done. Also really enjoyed the commentary team. Especially from David and Jovanka.

  8. IC when Magnus loses he says he's unwell and feels like shyt, and when he wins he says he feels fine. Wesley on the other hand when he loses, takes it like a man !

  9. Well done to all hosts, show is great, just one thing, Kaja, please stop with the "woooow" all the time!

  10. It would of been nice to see someone other than Magnus win wish Wesley So win but oh well they both played well

  11. “First I would like to thank lord jesus”
    Don’t you mean Lord Gary, the creator & god of chess? Or Lord Magnus the new god?

  12. the double standard (or bias) of the broadcast (mostly kaja though) with regards to how they treat others w.r.t. Carlsen has to stop. As Hikaru said, its tiring sometimes.

  13. Fellow chess players out there, chess is not just about lines, strategies and moves, winning or even losing, it is also about who we are whenever we win most specially when we lose. Chess players need to be gentlemen and sportsman. A great chess player is a sportsman in the event of defeat!

  14. Does anyone know the music that plays before a game in this video and others with david and the others commentating?

  15. This could it go either way. Don't forget Wesley beat Nepo twice. Honestly, Westly and Fabi have a better chance to beat Magnus in a championship match than Nepo. Congratulation to Magnus to pull this off.

  16. 51:08, Kaya goes: "quick draws that has been criticized the last 24 hours" …

    By WHOM?

    WHICH idi … eeeh … lesser educated minds missed the memo about draws being part of this game ????
    And has been for a 1.000 years.

    If it's smart … if it saves energy for later … or like Carlsen yesterday, not feeling well … or by So – during prelim's – correctly evaluating that he was already qualified for the knockout-stage.

    I mean …
    WHEEEEEEEEN do the audience and these commentators understand that it's just the VERY top elite of world's best chess playing smart and intelligent?

    They are NOT clowns in a circus or some "wild and roaring bulls, only there to entertain the bloodthirsdy cheering audience."
    It's simply a step of development of the game. "Same games" repeated within a few minutes was of course unthinkinkable in the 80'es, but nowadays the top elite players know a ZILLION games by heart due to databases, engine analysis and what not.

    Personally I can imagine a different pointsystem in the future instead of the good ol' +1, 0,5 or -1, but blame the format, if the "quick draws" is such a big issue.

    NOT the players.

  17. I was lucky since childhood. Tysm chess24 for choosing me as your winner. I would be grateful for life.
