DHRUV RAMANI : Ofcourse Anand won. He was playing against Matthew Perry...

Staraptorbravebird Staravia : The real reason why Anand took so long to move After playing knight he wondered whether it is a male or female but after 1:43 he realised gender discrimination is bad for society and continued the game

Douglas Edwards : Lesson learned: drain 2/5 of your time at the beginning of blitz chess to mentally plot out the billion possible moves that can occur after turn 4... (Proceeds to lose every subsequent game on

John Tom : Most people don't understand the genius of this moment. Anand thought upwards of 30 moves ahead to conclude the exchange of queens would put him in the winning position. Most regular players can think only 2-3 moves ahead. Simply incredible.

Marco Yang : Hah! you think spending 1.4 mins on a chess move is impressive? Just wait until you see how long it takes for my pencil to move during a math test!

TheFireflyGrave : Playing as back with 1 minute less, just needs to draw. Why not spot the opponent another minute advantage and win anyway? Great blitz game.

JstallGFU : I don't know how I got here, not quite sure what just happened, but I've never been more excited in my life.

Stefan Reich : I find stuff so hard to see on the board like that

TheLio666 : if I had a chance I will actually punch the annoucers

Vel A : Damn..Anand seems to not age at all..!!24 years later still looks the same..

Tomy Lim : this need to be watched in x2 speed

Tam Pham : the commentator makes this hilarious

Hamdan Bartawi : I asked myself, what gave Anand the motivation to sacrifice pawns?! Then i watched the video very closely and turned off the volume. The commentator did not notice it, but at (04:26 - 04:29) Samir made a HUGE mistake that would give Anand the game. Watch it yourself and you will see that EVEN the commentator did NOT notice it.           Anand had this game the moment Samir went for the pawn down the table, Samir did NOT pay attention to his Knight that was threatened by Anand's pawn. The moment Anand took that Knight he knew that at some point in time even if he lost more pawns he'd still be one up on the more important pieces, and he knew the pressure was on Samir. In chess ALL it takes is 1 MISTAKE and then it's like a DOMINO AFFECT. If someone just didn't make a mistake in chess you'd never have a winner and the game would go on for hours. I think that's why they add the aspect of time, to FORCE YOU to make a mistake.

You Cuba : From 1:13 the highlight comment is here! now!, what's gonna play, I never seen Anan so insecure incredible! he is spending a lot of time on his clock!!, for him to be thinking is deeply and is only like the fourth, the fourth move on the board is incredible! . what is gonna do? I'm Thinking, I Think this is unbelievable, he almost spent a minute 20 % of his time! for 4 moves, is incredible insecurity of this strong player, He's on the fourth moves now it's crazy, como on! como on! make a move! make a move!!, madness!, como on! this is this is unbelievable, this this is shocking!, I'm stoned to see it, He's thinking this long on on on this fourth move at the chess game analyzing what I do not know he used a minute and 30 seconds to think about the fourth move this is completely ridiculous he's putting himself into a Deep Deep whole!, Yeah! I mean, this this simply recapturing the pawn by white is a little bit n useful, normally you attack the knight first, having said that the position is very simple! What Vish's doing ? finally made the move! I mean couldn't!, couldn't be more dramatic I do not know what he was thinking about but it is certainly a surprise He spent all his time finally 02:48....
