  1. Yes. 2D board is very good. Appreciate all your efforts for this. Nice job. Kudos to one and all in chess base India.

  2. 12:14 Magnus has a great opportunity to strike and give checkmate.
    Only if he moves his horse.
    Edit:- So was it a tie? It was a tie! Both have 16 points.

  3. Bold moves in chess are intimidating and I am impressed by how they are quick with the moves.
    The air around is always intense.
    (Also, not me having my own chess nearby and trying to understand the moves)
    Each player has new strategy.
    Love from India ❤
    Also, for people wondering the "late"
    Yes, it's a psychological trick. Used to make the opponent loose a bit focus.

  4. I know damn well magnus shows up late on purpose to mess with his opponents heads. He's shows up a minute or two late. Slowly takes off his jacket, looks around, sits down, organizes his pieces, takes a sip of water. Thinks for 30 seconds and then finally makes his first move. That would drive me nuts if i was his opponent 😂

  5. Carlsen is an absolute beast..a boa constrictor the size of a whale…I still can’t get over the marathon game against Ian

  6. Alireza is too impatient for this style. You can see via his body language he wants to play fast in the beginning, Magnus reads it and slow plays on purpose
