04:27:20 Best part... "It would be nice to torture him a bit..." You don't get to be the #1 by being nice. Just a fact. Deriving pleasure from opponent's struggle is a MUST!

I feel tension between Jovanka and Judit because Judit takes over, rightfully but I can imagine - annoyingly. They should prepare better by establishing that Jovanka asks about moves and Judith confirms and therefore takes over the mic when explaining and predicting the next one.

We're watching to see the game on the live board. Give that priority please, particularly on rapid and blitz.

I have 3 wishes? Great. 1. Live board 2. Eval Bar 3. Clocks. Always.
Meaning, always. As in, they're always there. Like, they don't come and go randomly. They just stay there, and we get to have some clue about what's happening.

What is going on with the technical issues? Is it just on my side somehow? Even though I have no sound issues anywhere else. Half the time Judit's mic makes it sound like she's underwater. This has been going on for 4 days. Then today, right about when they bring Potkin on, the video and audio are out of sync on top of it!! Damn!

I really appreciate Judit's "multi plan" analysis and comments regarding whether or not the position is becoming more concrete-or not.

I find it annoying and difficult to follow the game, when there is no actual player game board shown on the screen, and only the game board that JP and JH are moving the pieces around on trying to predict the game. And the dual video windows of both the distant table view, and closer side angle view of the players (wooden board) isn't helpful. You have a bunch of windows showing on the screen, isn't it fairly obvious that *one* of them should be of the *game* ?! 🙄

Polgar is annoying in the interview with Magnus!

Author — Jan V.

Author

its a weird commentary setup and screen setup... we dont most of the time see the chess table and clock, and judit P is constantly blabbering about if this and if that... really annoying setup.

JUDIT,

STOP. TALKING. OVER. PEOPLE.

You won't let poor Jovanka get a word in. You speak over the top of her, cut her off, and finish off the lines she's already half-way through talking about. You even talk over the top of Magnus, over and over.

Production team, please?

Chief arbiter did it again at 4:00:18. I'm a terrible person.

Polgar works quite well as the interviewer for Carlsen. He only seems interested in discussing positions this deeply when he really respects the chess capabilities of the interviewer, we've seen this before.
