  1. Finally the saint Louis chess club gets it right by bringing sachdev in. She’s the best

  2. Pretty annoying that Peter won’t have the engine on.

  3. Does anyone find the Indian woman unnecessarily loud? You know like she feels like she is irrelevant or something? Or she has something to prove? This could be seen as quite rude to some people, especially when somebody of Yasser's status is next to her.

  4. I see the Sachdev psycophants are out in force in every single video and chat she appears in. It's pretty bad when your unpopular commentator is the topic of conversation instead of the players. She is divisive and has now become a complete distraction, nobody is discussing chess, time she was dropped.

  5. Is it necessary tanya is commentator at this level??

  6. Having a strong GM like Svidler in the commentary is such a pleasure to heard and learn from.

  7. Fabi looks about 16 in the cutaway interviews.

  8. Please stop using engine all the time. We have three great players there. Let them make the analysis.
