  1. This smile 😁 is i know I lost match in 30 second 🤣🤣

  2. How short was his subsequent Niemann match?

  3. How did he offer a draw ? By playing the knight ?

  4. This is not the shortest game! The shortest one is magnus vs hans, over in 1.5 moves.

  5. At first glance with no prior knowledge about his opponent's identity and his conditions, it seems like a pro vs noob match

  6. All these comments about this and that lol. Just be honest and say he was about to shit his pants!!!

  7. Just smart people trying to be main stream. Who are the people in the back? Complete useless

  8. By the war they had a draw made up pre match. Dude is hung over. Why is it just ok to accept a draw?

  9. Algum BR me explica o que aconteceu, please

  10. The next move was checkmate, might as well shake and walk

  11. Life is like a game of chess with Magnus…

    I don't know how to play chess

  12. How are draws offered? I heard nothing, and no gesture that I could see. How do chess players offer draws?

  13. i always feel like these hand gestures from magnus are disrespectful, can someone explain why this shows class from both players? 😀

  14. Why does he (magnus) always drink water while on their matches?

  15. Ha amateurs
    I can give him a much shorter match just by two moves

  16. to anyone wondering, it wasnt magnus that offered the draw, it was Vidit Gujrathi. you can see him lip "draw"

  17. If I were him I’d decline the draw because if he was to offer a draw after 5 moves I’d know something is very wrong and I can use that. 😂

  18. How did Vidit know that Magnus offered a draw?

  19. How did vidit understand that magnus want to draw???

  20. His left hand at the end before he left said.. U wasting my time .. 😃😃😃

  21. How he offered draw without any repeat move .
    ( I am not a chess player so.. )

  22. Pathetic behaviour by Carlsen and unworthy of a champion.

  23. Someone explain to me how he knew he was offering a draw

  24. 1:22 The white shirt man : bro i took sick leave for this game😥

  25. Imagine coming all the way out just for that!

  26. Can someone please explain to me why this was a draw??😭😭

  27. Can someone explain what happened here and why?

  28. Vidit's line of thinking after Magnus's Ng5:

    – Eh!? Ng5 this early is weird. That usually ends in a draw in this opening variant
    – From anyone else, that would be an error, but not from Magnus. What's going on?
    – Ah, wait. I saw him having that lamb vindaloo earlier, and I bet his tender Nordic tummy is now screaming at him!
    – Poor guy. He doesn't really want a draw, but he knows he's about to crap all over the floor.
    – Hmm, that could be fun to watch, and would probably let me win
    – On the other hand, I'm a nice guy — besides, I'm in the splash zone!
    – Fair enough Big C; you have a draw.. I hope you'd do the same for me if I was in your home town after eating that weird fish stuff y'all are partial to.
