    Unfortunately chess24 charging for video; not sure if there is any good free commentary yet.

    Live English commentary on Chessbase: https://en.chessbase.com/post/tata-s...hess-2019-live though I am unconvinced by their current identification of "Anna Rudolf".

    Kramnik escaped by the skin of his teeth! Was totally lost at one point but opponent rushed into simplifications.

    Noting your comment, and the message in your signature, suggests that both Kramnik and his opponent, would have benefited from your chess lessons!

    Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi tonight. Tarjei Svenson just tweeted that Carlsen has a pitiable +0=4-4 scoreline against this opponent. Losses with white in 2011 and 2017. Bugbear!

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Apparently, Kramnik's glasses broke right before the start of the round...so he was playing without glasses! Not sure how much it affected his play though

    Game here.

    Thanks to Kramnik's success with the ‘Berlin wall’, many top players are avoiding 5. d4 and instead try to gain an advantage with 5. Re1. White didn't have much until 27... b4; maybe Kramnik overlooked the sharp 29. Qd3. And 33... g6 was an inexplicable unforced error that I would not normally expect even from an average club player. What was he thinking, weakening his K-side and especially the long dark-squared diagonal when he lacks a dark-squared B while his opponent has one?

    and next up for Kramnik is Magnus who must be feeling disappointed he could not grind down Vidit in the endgame.
