  1. Yes, terrible decisions in the last few days with the commentary breaks…missing so many key moments like Erigaisi's blunder. It was a fascinating game and they also didn't fully explain the only real mistake from Abdusattorov when he played 28.Ng4 instead of Bxe5 and the line after Qxf1, Rxf1, Bxe1 and Bf3. A sad end of the game honestly, would have been nicer to see Nodirbek win cause he found all the line after 28.Bxe5 and not cause Arjun blundered a rook but it's what it is. Incredible calculation by both nevertheless, very apparent how amazing it was when you see IMs and a GM like the commentators struggle to understand the critical lines. Very high level game.

  2. What a beautifull soft voice of wgm jovanka..
