  1. Hans was 2700 when he beat Magnus. I wonder what excuse Magnus will come up with now? Maybe Murali was wearing a necklace?😂🤣

  2. Kerthikeyan is not a journeyman… loved his queen sacrifice game years ago!

  3. Think Magnus playing like this shows the need for rest.

  4. … it seems the best option for Magnus not to lose against lower ranked players, would be not to compete against them at all – like he usually does in his tournaments. 😎

  5. Murali won with 2 anals: Anal beads in his Analogue watch. Impossible for Mags to beat him.

  6. What weared his opponent? Watch, spectacles, ear rings or what else? 😊🤔😁

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

    2nd : 2023 USCC – 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).

  8. “I would like to thank your moms smothered mate” -Agadmator

  9. I'm looking for the Magnus goat comment when he loses.😂 And he is the goat, but its just funny they only say it when he wins.

  10. Magnus needs a break from chess. He plays all kinds of tournaments and all time formats. No time to rest, study and regain focus. But without Magnus at a tournament, there is little public interest. . Where is the so called 'World champion'? . Magnus has to do it all himself and he is tired and bored with chess at the moment. . Everyone wants to beat the REAL champion. . Time for Ding to give something back and play the part of a real world champion.

  11. Must be cheating because no one should beat me –

  12. magnus has been losing quite a few games to low rated people…

  13. This game lose will SURELY make Magnus appeal to FIDE to disallow any indian descent to play in chess because it would cause him an inability to concentrate. Mark my words.

  14. Murali cheated. No one is allowed to beat the Lord Magnus.

  15. It did not happen again under the 'watch' of Murali

  16. these cheaters are becoming better and better 😂

  17. Magnus in post match interview: as soon as I saw that my opponent was breathing while playing, I lost all ability to concentrate.

  18. Magnus: I voiced my concerns to the arbiter about Murali's ultra white teeth… after that I couldn't concentrate.

  19. This game is all about luck, sometimes you win , sometimes you again next time.😅😅

  20. The underdeveloped crabs are hungry, that is always dangerous. And from what I can read all the Hindus, Pakistanis or whatever, are crazy with triumphalism. Pitiful.

  21. Y least favourite grand master because of his arrogance and often disrespectful attitude towards opponents. Wonder what he'll blame now. Organisers? Watches? Ambiance? Decor? Opponent outfit?

  22. The new generation is not impacted by the Magnus Effect.

  23. I think Carlson is partying too much with Botez sisters, lol

  24. Murali beat – MVL, FIRUZA, GUKESH, ARJUN, MAGNUS
    , vidit, hari all are 2700

  25. I think Magnus is bored of the same positions and try to be sneaky instead of being just solid, I could try to understand the lonliness the top of the food chain must feel but it must be a sad place, like having the same meal every time, almost like being in prision I hope He find again the joy of crushing oponents by endless presure and force them to try new things to beat him and not the other way arround

  26. It does not matter he is the goat many still think he is done 🙄… he is the goat for a reason.

  27. Not murali karthikeyan its karthikeyan murali
