  1. It is so weird seeing both Samay and Tania on same stream after Tania blocked Samay just a few days back.

  2. Such a fun stream ! OP !
    That section where samay joined was mad !
    n yeah standup was an answer deep down somewhere everybody knew from the day it all started…It is what it is ..
    Anyways..happy birthdayyy <3

  3. Happy birthday sagar sir!!!
    You've inspired a lot of us and made us more passionate about chess❤❤

  4. Thanks a lot for the commentary going through the games with u guys is so better than to just look at the results ❤❤❤

  5. Would love to know your opinion on this.

    I think it was organisers who are at fault, not Dubov. If some one came +ve in his contact, he should have been asked to quarantine and leave the tournament that day itself. Letting him play with a mask is a pretty stupid decision risking lives of every1. I think what Dubov did by not playing the game was better than playing with a mask.

    The organisers have not only risked the players here but also Grand Prix as many players here will participate there. Also, they allowed Pragg to play with mask after Ramesh sir tested positive, that's also pretty risky.

    I don't know why questions haven't been raised to organisers by players. I have seen them complain at even small discomforts at a FIDE organised tournament which is completely right and they should do. They should have asked organisers why have they allowed Dubov and Pragg to continue. I have no hard feelings against any1, just feel they have risked many lives. Hopefully every1 remains safe.

  6. I just want to say that VD drawing against Magnus shouldn't be considered a big result. The level of play which VD has shown was very high and drawing against him should be an ok result. This is would make VD go for a win next time he faces him . BTW amazing stream.💓

  7. sagar bhai , in vidit vs magnus engines like sesse gives this variation Rxef Kd3 the move is Rf4 g6 Rf6 some deep interesting idea which is bit of crazy and it's not loosing it's +1 but not loosing

    pls discuss this variation as it is something no one saw in this stream if you make a video on this game tomorrow

  8. Congrats Sagar Bhai for launching this huge Chess Project, hopefully it is a success like Chessbase India🙂. Hope to meet you someday after this Covid thing subsides🙂.

  9. Wish you a very Happy Birthday Sagar sir! You and Amruta ma'am have been and will always be a inspiration for me! Thank you for doing every stream with consistent hardwork, patience and persistence. Lots of love to you and Amruta ma'am.
