  1. 17:30 Kinda sleazy (not to say distracting) to play a tournament of this caliber on an unmatched set. That black bishop looks like it's made of plastic.

  2. so glad the fashion designer kid lost. Only guy I am actively wishing bad results upon.

  3. As Anish said, Alireza is so lucky. If Ding has jumped with the right knight he was going to win against Alireza and if Nepo was able to build the fortress, that match was a draw too.

  4. Nazi P., a hero with real courage. Freedom for Iran!

  5. Ding Liren the world Champion who cant Win a single game after becoming World Champion

  6. In runda opta a fost un rusinos noncombat .
