The last link leads to the same video shown in the embedded stream above. The last two streams featured commentary by GMs Naroditsky and Hess. I haven't (yet) watched the first three streams to confirm if the same pair commentated all five. In the final post from last month 2022 FWFRCC Follow-ups (October 2022), I wrote,
This past week I managed to watch a few hours of the 2022 FWFRCC group stage. I was amazed by the quality of the games and of the commentary.
I should mention that I watched on the Youtube channel for Chess24. Here's a list of live streams from the same channel [FWFRC = FIDE World Fischer Random Championship]:-
- 2022-10-25: [FWFRC] Day 1 | Peter Leko & Nils Grandelius
- 2022-10-29: [FWFRC] Semifinals | Peter Leko & Alejandro Ramirez
- 2022-10-30: [FWFRC] Finals | Peter Leko & Alejandro Ramirez
- 2022-10-30: [FWFRC] Finals Pt2 | Peter Leko & Alejandro Ramirez
From what I've seen so far, my preferred chess960 commentator has to be Peter Leko. Hungarian GM Leko was one of the earliest practitioners of chess960 and rubbed shoulders with Fischer when the eccentric American GM lived in Hungary. For a previous post on an early high profile match, see 2001 Leko - Adams on Geocities (May 2022).
