    The challenger has drawn White in the first game, chess24 broadcast starts tonight (6:30pm Aust Eastern Summer).

    chess24 is promising commentary by Nigel Short, accompanied by WGM Zhang Ziaowen. Unlike many other broadcasts, Nigel will have the benefit of not having his co-commentator chirruping in his ear about moving to the "ladies" section.

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

    See you in another life, brotha.

    China has the great firewall of China and for the general folk, a lot of google services, and youtube are banned. The only way to access these services in China is through a vpn.

    I would assume for this event that the CCP has given permission for the event to be broadcast on Youtube, but it is no surprise to me that the transmission is choppy and there is a massive lag.

    Events like this, when doing their internet broadcast, usually do struggle during the first game. So, it is no surprise to me that the broadcast is lagging and the degree of lag would also be dependent on your internet connection as well.

    Hopefully the organisers can sort this out before the second game, as I tried to watch the first game on youtube through fide chess and found it very difficult to watch due to the lag issues.

    As for the commentary, if you don't like it, mute quite often improves the commentary standard

    One thing I also want in these matches and main tournaments is that the commentators use two boards on the screen. One is the game board, with the game position and this only changes when there is a move. And then the commentators use a second board to show their commentary and analysis.

    It pisses me off no end when there is only one board and the commentators are throwing pieces and positions around from the entire game, when all as a spectator is you want to analyse the position yourself and sometimes come to your own conclusion, and then see how accurate that is.

    Game 1. After a harmless looking start Goryachkina seemed to get something out of nothing after the passive 35...Be8, but it's unclear if there was ever anything actually there or just a position that looked good. It will be interesting to see if in-depth analysis finds any way she could have won.

    Goryachkina - Ju

    Game 2

    https://chess24.com/en/watch/live-to...hip-2020/1/1/2

    The commentators and the engines criticised Goryachkina's 16...Bg5 but Ju missed or declined the most interesting line 18.g4.

    Such a boring game. They are not allowed to agree to a draw prior to black's 40th move. And they agree to a draw, you guessed it, on black's 40th move.

    Suspect they were both exhausted after yesterday but yes I lost interest around move 23 or so.

    Hope we get a Karsten Müller analysis of game 1 sometime (or someone else who is very good with endgames) - Chessbase keeps posting automated analysis that is often just rubbish.

    I am unsure which is worse.

    1) The consistent buffering issues with the live stream, which I believe is caused by this part of the match being in China
    2) Nigel Short's commentary.

    A pet hate of mine is when commentators start throwing pieces around the board and make wild statements, quite often off topic, and forget that a move on the board has been played, which was not part of their analysis.

    I'd take his commentary over his leering.

    Wenjun Ju takes the first win!

    Maybe one for the "take care when going into a pawn ending" thread.
