  1. I think magnus will take this one but i guess not for too long we are going to have a new champion some time this decade. Chess has become very competitive best of the players can't hold on for long anymore.

  2. Pragg is going to have to work for his meal against Magnus with White

  3. I wish there was a channel which described the game as it was played and without useless commentary of what could have been played.

  4. I still get annoyed when they agree to a draw in positions like this ….
    I mean you could just draw at the begining … it's equal material and positions.

  5. Lovely to see your analysis of such a high level fight Enjoying both.

  6. Your English translation blocked the view of first two rows.

  7. I think pragg is the chosen one..he even has a mark on his forehead😁

  8. Kudos to Magnus to trying to keep the game alive by playing some suboptimal moves for not leading directly to a draw. But Impressive play of Pragg non the less.

  9. He is not the Chosen One! He Became the Chose one!

  10. #suggestion
    Eero Einar Book vs. A. Hiidenheimo, played in Helsinki in the junior tournament in 1924: Eero sacrificed a Queen early on to checkmate after a King hunt over the board. Beautiful 😀

  11. Magnus just bored and has done it all I can see it in his face.GOAT.Think he will stop playing soon..Thanls for your genius.

  12. @09:59 ….. you kind of rushed it, because you could capture the rook, which would be winning?

  13. Please tell me who won the world cup final??

  14. During 10:01 why not rook C2 capture rook C6 which was left hanging after the moving of the Knight?

  15. agad is undoubtedly the best chess channel in youtube.. wishing you more subscribers

  16. Terrible new color scheme and overall frame for the videos, honestly.

  17. Antonio, plz share Sindarov vs Sulemanov at FIDE World Cup 2023

  18. Pragg is excellent but again faster time formats suit Magnus more

  19. Hi_5:26: wouldn't capture F1___would capture A8, forcing A3 to shift to ether b2 c1, unless the want to take d6; only after that i would take f1

  20. The idiots donate over 10k $ just to be on the screen?

  21. Like feeling each other out waiting for a subtle blunder But none

  22. I remember when people thought fizzy was the next one,
    I backed Pragg back then, seems going against the masses may of been the best MOVE.

  23. Watching Pragg's growth has been outstanding. I remember the 2016 u12 world championships where he narrowly lost to Nikhil Kumar, I initially tipped Kumar to have the better career but the reverse has been the case. Pragg has gone way beyond my expectations!

  24. Hello, my friend! It would be great if you put timer on the screen for moves, especially for classical games, for me, it is important!

  25. Prag could have started pushing the pass pawn on a2 and guard it more zealously. Not let that pawn die easily.

  26. Nic (J Bruce Feynman Niccolo P. Bentulan) says:

    Nijat cheated before right?

    Why does Magnus play cheaters Parham, Pranav & Sébastien Feller but not Hans?

    My theory was that Magnus plays only gentile non-American cheaters (like Magnus who is a gentile non-American cheater) but Magnus plays Nijat whom I guess is Jewish since supposedly top players of former Soviet Union are Jewish.

    So either

    1 – Magnus hates only American cheaters.

    2 – Magnus is a liar.

    More info :


    Why does Nijat get in the candidates but Zhongyi doesn't? #suggestion

  27. India became the first country in the world to land on the Moon's South Pole

  28. in min 10:00 why rock to e2 ? isnt rock captures in c6 the move , someone explain pls

  29. If white plays for a draw and magnus did not prep the line, it's very hard to push for a win.

  30. Just because of it is final, the hype is there. But Boring game.

  31. 10:00 rook takes rook in your hypothetical that you missed and gets winning position

  32. this one was a outstanding analysis, very fast and extremly exciting

  33. I love the diversity of chess. Pragg's age is a great example. But FIDE does not care about diversity. Boycott FIDE after their transphobic decision to not allow trans women to play women's chess. Skip the livestream and watch Antonio's wonderful coverage instead.

  34. Am I missing something or is the analysis on 9:59 wrong? Why doesn't black just take the rook on c6?

  35. on 10 minutes… Rxe2? NO! Rxc6… right?…

  36. Some of your side lines are too rushed. You are definitely doing something wrong as you leave obvious pieces hanging in some of them. I think you are just forgettin move order a little bit, or placement.
