    Hey I voted for the knight maneuver, and I find this offensive

    You analyzed the position nicely, but I think you missed the most interesting aspect of this game... the world is cheating!  The game was short, but moves like 12...Re8, the Nd7-b6-d7-f8-g6 maneuver, and then 17...Rb8 are all moves that are simply beyond a reasonable doubt to be produced by a mass of 1200s thinking for 2 minutes and voting legitimately.  Is anyone surprised that all of these maneuvers are top engine recommendations?  Would anyone be surprised to discover that the players who voted for ...Re8 consistently voted for top engine moves in all the other positions of the game?


    What's amazing is that this is a majority-rules vote, which means it's not just a few cheaters, cheating is actually commonplace in events like these!


    It's a sad commentary on the human race to see that so many people are ready to cheat when they know no one is watching.

    Very anti-climactic ending. I feel like black should have been much more courageous, not only in that last set of moves but in the earlier half of the midgame as well.

    Thank you Grandmaster of chess videos. Interesting analysis of Nb6 in comparison to Nf8, in closing the position.

    Wow, I can't believe how the game ended. 

    thanks again
