Default The blitz event in St Louis

Well, there was Caruana, Nakamura, So and Kasparov, and over two days they produced extraordinary chess well reported by the crew of strong players and commentators attending.

Having had a go at this myself, 2 hours live commentary on 8GMs, with Paul Troung over 10 years ago, it is my educated opinion that this crew got a lot right. main commentators were Jen Shahade, Maurice Ashley and Yasser Serirawan.

Should be glad to hear of other's opinions on this streamed event and also about Garry! 11 years out of the action and in the last two blitz games he defeats Nakamura [best blitz player in the world] and Caruana [#2 player in the world.]

So who here watched it, and what did you think?
