ceroso398 : 2:46 - I don't like this - Why? Who are you? LOL I'm dying

Khoa Lam : But that African player is actually a very good player himself. He probably knows who Hikaru is at that level

Addict C : I dont think that guy likes this

Mehmet Ihsan Okur : Did you notice? Hikaru only took his own money.

Kieran Martin : Who was this South African hustler? He's awesome but nobody cares to mention it. Yes Nakamura beat him but Nakamura is a human blitz AI machine only equaled by two other GM's in the world.

Levi Vue : That hustler was pretty good taking the gm to end game like that

Ravish Raj : That last moment when nakamura pockets the money...ūüėā

T : Hustler estimated rating? He did not seem terrible, I know terrible.. I am terrible.

Alexis Mendoza : Naka took the money that he put in bet, the other player doesn't lose money (min 4:27) and won a big experience with a god of blitz chess!!

Fajar Ramadhan : Good thing chess.com added a board on the right corner because it's pretty hard to keep up

Renato Kuramoto : He is just having a good time and being generous. I would like to play a game against Naka for five bucks.

Arif Yandi : would be very disrespectful if Naka don't take their money. They all are warrior, ready for consequences.

W Bennett : Hikaru should fire his travel agent.
