  1. I was playing chess with my friend and he said, "Let's make things interesting." So we stopped playing chess.

  2. Magnus's whole board vision is just uncanny. By the end Alireza, brilliant in his own right, is visibly frustrated. The guy shows up late against one the fastest, most dangerous players in the world, takes his time thinking about which variation to play against the Caro Kann, and then plays one of the most aggressive lines of cutting edge theory. He then proceeds to disect and nullify Alireza's position as though it were a corpse resting on a marble slab. Absolute mastery.

  3. What is so special at the end? Magnus tripped over a chair? I missed it! 😂

  4. How he lost?? Black's king wasn't in check?? Is it bcz of time???

  5. can someone tell how did the game end and who won?

  6. Ager match draw ho jata hai to kya hota hai kya dono ko winner maan liya jata hai ya

  7. Beginner question: Who won the game, also there were so many pieces left then why they ended the game

  8. I hate commentary on chess games they gotta stop that shit its just annoying

  9. I dont get it why did alireza resign they had same materials

  10. Is it his strategy to distract opponent concentration?

  11. Can somebody explain me why alireza gave up pls?

  12. I don't get it.. why did alireze surender?

    The first time you have a chance at the top is the second one and you get the chance of winning the first time 😊😅😮😢🎉😂❤

  14. But the black guy had it in mid game just hesitated

  15. It is advantageous to have a timer on your dominant hand.

  16. Super-intelligent Magnus Carlsen and join the club, wink, wink 😉👍

  17. Magnus satranç oynamıyor, aksine psikolojik olarak oynuyor. Karşı tarafı ilk bekletip sonra oyun başladığında her adımda gereksizce fazla düşünüp Alireza'nın sıkılmasını sağlıyor. Ve tüm bunlar oynu kazanmak içindir, oynamak için değil.
    Niye satranç federasyonu böyle saçma insanlara yol verdi? Kıskanç ve bencil bir insan hayat boyunca kazanamaz!!

  18. I feel bad for the players coerced into wearing face masks when they walk in. So wrong.

  19. Can we just appreciate how magnus wins almost every game and still does not say a single word

  20. was it a draw? or did Alireza surrender? if he resigned why ?

  21. Carlsen is relaxed and climb over the fence… that's all…

  22. Such an intersting batlle of the minds to see unfold. Magnus came late and noticed alireza already started the clock where you can see him raise his eyebrows. Then in the beginning of the game he takes a lot of time for just the first 3 moves. I think the purpose for this is first of all getting into the mindspace and getting the opening right calculating all the possibilities but also to hand it back to alireza and show him he doesnt care about wasting his time which annoys alireza, he looks around the room at one moment waiting for magnus to move. In the middle game magnus does some fairly uncommon moves with the pawns for example to throw alireza off and not letting him get into the sequenzes subsequentually throwing alireza into deep waters with him. Alireza i think is getting nervous by this point and backs off several times thus magnus wins the game by continuosly putting pressure on and not letting alireza get into the offence at all. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk haha

  23. if u give a weak piece or pawn such e6 to Magnus, he will make u regret for that til the end of the game constantly.

  24. ดูแต่ตา วาจาอย่าเป็นเซียน ^^

  25. 😅why did he giveup? He would have won if he still continued

  26. I thought black horse to g6 for a fighting chance but I see the well played trap in all directions. Amazing!
