2022 Superbet Chess Classic: Round 1

Live from the Sheraton Bucharest Hotel, the Superbet Chess Classic is the first leg of the Grand Chess Tour. The nine Tour players (Caruana, Aronian, Firouzja, So, Mamedyarov, Nepomniachtchi, Rapport, Dominguez, and MVL) are joined by a wildcard (Deac) for a classical round robin. Join GMs Peter Svidler, Alejandro Ramirez, Yasser Seirawan, Cristian Chirila, and WGM Anastasiya Karlovich for the move-by-move.



  1. I was curious to see GM Yasser after march 2020 lockdown but delighted to see him in action in 2022

  2. Did Wesley bring up God in his postgame interview?

  3. firouzja's interview seems like he was not enterely focused on chess during these months (as he always said that if he is awaken, he is into chess)

  4. I wish, hope and think Peter stays in New Orleans. Like Aronian.

  5. If only Peter could stop interrupting others every single time…

  6. It does feel like Peter likes to interrupt a little too often. I know it’s not on purpose or disrespect, but it would be better if Peter let Yasser finish his thoughts more often.

  7. Rapport interview around 4:04 is brutally honest as always 😁 Go Ricsi!

  8. "I am….eventually….Peter Svidler!!"😂

  9. I would think that Judit would be glad to help her fellow countryman Richie out with his preparations. I have no doubt it would be a fruitful collaboration.

  10. So many great storylines in this year's candidates tournament. Imagine if Ian were to win again, and went on to redeem himself by becoming world champion. Or if Alireza won as the youngest candidates winner ever, to give us a showdown between the present and the future. Or if Hikaru won as a part time streamer and chess player, to show he's still among the best in the world and shows even greater strength than ever before as he plays with more confidence and less stress. So many great things could happen.

  11. Great choice of commentary of saint louis. They'd dropped the ball for a bit, or maybe there was just so many great alternatives but this one is back on top again!

  12. Amazing commentary as always. But better to avoid sausage fest.
