  20. Draw with world no 2 after giving scare tells prowess of Prag

  21. These chess players are so lame. Shitty handshake. Over thinking but knows exactly what to move.

  22. bro.. pragg could have actually won against hikaru.. he had a better middle game position and he had a slightly better opening somehow, wasted opportunity in my eyes.

  23. They looked so unfriendly and even hostile before the game. But after the game, they started to talk with each other and became very friendly. This game is turning everyone into enemies. LOL

  24. "Hikaru is looking more handsome; he might have been losing weight after marriage. ❤😅"

  25. This boy attitude look like an adult grandmaster and champion

  26. I believe in Praggna qualifying for the round of 16 🙏🚀

  27. Pragg stayed solid in this game for the most part

  28. 5 years ago, as a young kid, Pragg had a tough time for Hikaru at the Tata Steel chess matches. And this time in a World Cup match.
    However, it's unfortunate that Pragg had to find the strongest contender as his opponent in the 4th round. If Pragg can get through this, he will be one of the formidable contenders.

  29. This commentary is absolutely world class. Well done!
