@Eric Rosen vs Sagar Shah | I'm Not a GM Speed Chess Championship

IM Not A GM is back with a sequel, and it will feature some of the most famous non-GM players in the chess community. Today's matchup...Rosen vs Shah!
The format is similar to that of the Speed Chess Championship, except for the addition of a halftime break and slightly less time allotted for each segment. The participants will play 75 minutes of 5+1 blitz, 45 minutes of 3+1 blitz, and 25 minutes of 1+1 bullet chess in each match, with breaks scheduled for the players halfway through both the five-minute and three-minute portions.

Read KGcode's Copyright policy . Hikaru didn't wanted drama that's why he didn't challenged the strike . Which may have resulted in KGcode deleting ChessBase India KGcode Channel for abusing youtube's copyright policy. And I'm indian don't be a blind follower.

  • I disagree about Eric not enjoying his opponents suffering. As a long time fan of his stream and content - I can't tell you the number of times where he so nonchalantly expresses his desire to "crush their hopes and dreams" on the board. He's very zen like with his mannerisms and behavior but I feel confident in saying that he delights in crushing his opponents every bit as much as everyone else at his level.

      legrandliseur trilegrandliseur tri3 ай мурун
    • @Vaishali Goel I think Nemo's okay. But I think what people find grating is her prosody degrades when she's excited. e.g. in reacting to something, or jumping on a joke, she can be too loud. (Well, the first time I saw that term was on an aspie blog). I think it's also fair to say she's less experienced at this commentary. She's not been streaming long; on her streams she gets to bounce off of chat. Whereas here.. the commentary (although professional and explanatory, focussed on the game).. there's some social dynamic that isn't quite landing so that it's not as charming as other pairs.
