  1. If Kasparov play white , I recalled it nearly impossible to beat him especially by some tourists😅😅😅 that's why Kasparov is much much stronger than carlsen😊😊😊

  2. Magnus deserves all this and more after walking out after the loss to Hanz.

  3. Everyone made fun of Hans when he lost to a 2400 but now Magnus and Levon are losing more than once to random GMs.

  4. Well well well, maybe they will stop making fun of Hans now?

  5. U know what this means Hans was not cheating

  6. If magnus didnt play like ding he would not lost ratings
    Dont forget that magnus won 9/10 events he joined this year
    Like gct rapid blitz poland / croatia
    Classical= european team championship + gold medal 1st board + world cup and many online chess tour events…

  7. Not an analogue watch in sight. Funny that, maybe opponents arent actually cheating and we're witnessing a huge ego trip instead.

  8. The bishop captures on H6 line you suggested was doable really isn't. He can still take the knight with his rook

  9. Sure, the miss on Rxe4 was pretty elementary for GM levels, but damn that endgame defense displayed by Kerthikeyan was something else!! Magnus was completely obliterated in this one!

  10. Your content is so excellent quality that I preemptively thumbs up your videos before even watching them so I don't forget, because I KNOW for a fact the video is going to be premium quality and I wanna make sure you get it. The amount I've learned in such a short time since I discovered your channel, when you cover all the alternate lines is invaluable. I wish I wasn't so poor so I can donate to you, but I am disabled, and I'm just hoping my message can get to you at least. Thank you for what you do.

  12. These young guys are bringing some fresh tactics to the game.

  13. Murali used his Shining teeth to distract MC, believe me.

  14. The notion that Magnus didn't see Rxe4 is laughable. A 1600 would calculate that because it's obvious and all forcing. For whatever reason, he threw this game. I don't trust boxing matches in that part of the world and I don't trust chess there either.

  15. Magnus is losing it! On the way out, baby!!!

  16. Maybe Magnus will find his motivation again after losing enough games.

  17. Quote title of this shows – There are two types of sacrifices: correct ones, and mine – Tal…. clues of game being reviewed… 🙂

  18. Terrific game and expected outcome – always a good day when crybaby Carlsen loses handily. Waiting for the ‘loss excuses’ to pour out.

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

    3rd : 2023 women's USCC aka Wesley So's girlfriend beat Hikaru's wife.

    But Atousa almost beat Carissa Yip!

    It wasn't a clean victory. Carissa was losing most of the game. Atousa just blundered in the end.

    Please consider reviewing this game and in particular spreading the rumour that Carissa Yip is dating Wesley So based on Carissa's X header – it's a photo of just Carissa & Wesley (& Leinier & Melik).

    move 54 for black is an 8-move equality puzzle

    it's so sharp

    Also Carissa thanked Wesley as her secret second in her 2023 USCC closing ceremony speech.


  20. 3rd Indian to beat Magnus in classical chess .

  21. And he sacks the ‘RoooooK’….. I guess Magnus doesn’t watch Gotham Chess with Levy

  22. Fantastic I’m always thrilled to see Magnus defeated probably because he wins so much it gets to be mundane always like seeing other GMs able to grab the spotlight for a moment

  23. Overhyped Carlsen getting exposed in this tournament…. Great game by Murali 👏🏾

  24. Both of them names start with letter M and ends with letter N.

  25. An opponent Play's some good moves against Magnus..he 💯 cheated lol

  26. Didn't Magnus complain about any kind of smart watch?

  27. What can black counter if white at 9:58 takes knight on e6 with rook on h6?

  28. The point is people can blabber about anything about him but that’s the only thing they can do “Blabber”.He is the best and probably be the best for some time to come if not long .

  29. I was eating, looking at my food and when agad said he'd like to thank my mother I fucking gasped

  30. Apparently Magnus asked the tournament director to investigate Murali’s watch collection after this match was played

  31. At 5:18 after white knight capturing black knight, could Magnus have moved his bishop to align with black's king and queen on the same diagonal instead?

  32. Now I don't know if murli was wearing a watch 😅

  33. so what was Magnus' excuse this time: his opponent had too much hair gel and used it to cheat.

  34. 1,3 mill talk a lot!!! You are the best chess analyzer,glad to find you way back. No BS and straight to the point. And NO stefpiid thumbnails 🥳🥳🥳

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

    4th : Alisher & Hans are Jewish-or-American. Karthikeyan Murali is Gentile non-American. See the pattern here?

  36. In last years Murali just one chess player who knows what chess is and how can play to astonishing by intellectually
