  3. Why are you up so early, Jerry? I admire your enthusiasm for chess, but any time before noon is much too early!

  4. Having been able to watch it live, I did my darnedest to learn from it, glad for the chance to review it at my own pace.

  5. on the first game, Magnus blundered his queen just like that? :O

  6. Naka is a beast on bullet and blitz, maybe the best in the world in those two respects.

  7. Thanks Jerry…I've been looking for a sensible recording of the games without all the distracting nonsensical chat, etc. Nice soothing background music too! Good Job!

  8. My wife is complaining that there is no "soothing voice of Jerry" on this one
