What Do You Think of the Recent Videos Where Rensch and Kiewra Play Blitz and Analyze Live?

  • They're great - do more of them!
  • They're entertaining but not too instructive.
  • I like them, but we don't need three videos on the same set of games.
  • The best part is hearing two different players' thoughts on the same games.
  • I like the format but prefer one longer game rather than blitz.
  • I don't care for these videos or format at all.

What Do You Think of Short Matches Like Hikaru Nakamura and David Navara Are Playing?

  • They're great! The chess world should have more.
  • If there's no tournament or title at stake, I don't see the point.
  • I like when they feature compelling themes, like old versus young, etc.
  • I follow them, but they will always take a backseat to an organized tournament.
  • I have the money to host one now!
  • I didn't even know these two were playing a match right now!
