  2. I think caruana is better with time so next match will be quite difficult for pragg to win

  3. I thought magnus is my current favorite GM but I have fallen deep in love with Pragg. Bro you surely reign.

  4. Look at the cameraman smiling when Magnus offers a handshake to no one😂

  5. Indian commentator don't know the difference between construction and structure.

  6. Player yawns.Sagar exclaims that 😂magician at work.

  7. Prag game is really inspiring people around the world, I am big fan of him

  8. Hope Prag goes to the finals eager to see prag vs magnus

  9. Meanwhile Magnus is pretending to play with himself since he’s so bored 😂.

  10. Fabi: I'm gonna punish you for your opening mistake.
    Pragg's mum + slippers: That's my job Mr Fabi Wasabi.

  11. Sagar's commentary on today's game is as thrilling as yesterday's Women's FIFA World Cup Final.

  12. I am bit confuse regarding time… Is there was any time limit? How after time 0sec moved to 30 minutes?

  13. Prag very inventive player in threathening positions !

  14. Hey guys I'm new to chess, a bit confused seeing them write down things during the game. May I know what is that for?

  15. caruana play f5 endgame but nb3 is good move

  16. Your r so distrubing while chase game..so plz don't move your thought game in real chase board we are can't enjoy game

  17. Proof that you could become a global sensation like Magnus but the awkward introvert in you never dies. 😅😅

  18. Fun fact : The commentator never reached the semi finals 😂😂😂😂 but he is speaking in such way that he is world's no.1 😂

  19. Pragnananda was praying initially! May sanathan Dharm be his guiding path!

  20. How many of u are currently playing chess like hell these days

  21. Yeh bich bich me kaha jake ate h ye dono? 🤔 chai-sutta marne jate kya 🚬 🤣

  22. If the jackass commentator knows what’s the better move and not a good move, why doesn’t he himself play and win a world championship.
    This would have been much better to view without that running commentary.

  23. Caruana have left their golden move and they had the chance to win this game
