  1. Hello kind people who will never become GM

  2. Many thanks for the coverage, enjoy your chess now!

  3. Great commentary and analysis, looking forward to more!

  4. Don’t let this video distract you from the fact that Svidler was once bribed to play at Gibraltar because the organizer offered Svidler a game of cricket

  5. 28:50 congrats at beating a kid peter…lol. sorry just having a little fun. thank you and jan for the past week of commentarying. you guys are always a blast to listen to

  6. I think Magnus felt bad for Fabiano, and gave him the game!

  7. Thank you, Mr. Svidler! Great Analysis and liveshow as well.

  8. That feeling when you see you can get mated in 3.

  9. Caruana was winning in the classic time control

  10. proving once again the complexity of chess and that its beauty can only be realized with appropriate time when played by human beings.
    i understand the reductions in time controls and the desire to reduce every game to some sort of assumed thrilling fight against the added tensions of a winding down clock….but i have seen no evidence that those efforts have popularized the game in a demonstrable way…and certainly the quality of the games does not improve.

  11. The classical game shows how strong Magnus is at the moment. He has black against the world #2, nothing to play for, it fizzles out to a drawish position with a slight pull for white… And then he simply outplays white move by move. Fantastic stuff. Too bad it didn't work, but very interesting nonetheless.

  12. Thanks Peter,you're unsurpassed at the commentary.

  13. Too many computer lines discussed in this video, variations that no human possibly see. As a matter of fact, and as indeed evident from the game, lines that not even the Number 1 and Number 2 in the world would see. So I don't see the point in discussing them in such depth, length and even speed. Commenting one or two of them, perhaps in case of a very interesting, beautiful move, is OK. But riddling the analysis with a whole bunch of long computer variations the top two players didn't even consider, I don't think is a good idea; and can serve no purpose other than make Mr Svidler look like an absolute genius. MHO

  14. 40:50 Isn't there a very famous Capablance endgame where he gives up two(?) pawns to activate his King like this.

  15. Magnus gives so few chances, and when he finally gives one, his opponents usually don't see it.

  16. Here's the game Svidler vs Carlsen

  17. Probably the most enjoyable part of the tourney, GM Svidler's recap videos.Oh, and hotel stories.

  18. He is coughortably the best chess commentator on the planet.

  19. It's hard to play against a US player,the dark empire is so cruel,and it got to many women pulling the strings(and killers).
