First Wesley said the engine is so strong that his evaluation is inhuman and irrelevant and then he said the engine does not analyze deep enough and can't be trusted.

Too much game hopping and in the end hard to follow any.
Alireza has a chronic problem against Caruana!
I am a chess player
Wesley So: "I am not sure how strong is this engine usually you have to go depth 30/35 to be accurate".
4:15:32 Nazi P: "Oh You're pinned, You're not stopping me"
Seirawan: "Ohhh Good morning Saint Louis"
Yasser is so much dissing our poor Romanian friend Deac. I mean he's 42 in the world in a tournament with no 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 12, 14, and 27th. Give the guy a break for real!
Regarding Yasser's comment on great chess books written by great chess authors…what about the incomparable Fred Reinfeld??? He wrote NUMEROUS books on chess which inspired countless young, budding chess players, especially during the early years of Bobby Fischer. Hats off to Fred Reinfeld!
Great games! 2:19:56 we could use even more practical discussion & advice.
Cristian ha more with the leading question about the coaching change to pin poor Deac against the wall wtf!!
Wesley to armchair quarterback I mean commentator…"nothing to get over just another day being a top pro I mean day at the office"😂
Rating-protection mode again for Wes…practical professional move but will always hinder his world championship ambition if he has any…
Lol Wesley got triggered during the interview. Blame your timid style of chess for once.
Thanks for answering my question about the books. I hadn’t heard of the On Guard series so thanks for the tip!
I'm convinced that only the engines can put the screws to Wesley So when he gets these complications from exchange or positional sacrifices.
