Anyone else watching this? Im amazed at how calm and well GM Robin Van Kampen (Giri's second) is handling GM Tiviakov's obnoxious repetitions of "Why Giri play so bad?". Its like watching Jerry Springer try to get a rise out of a guest..

 

Also liked Robin's answer to the question/statement (paraphased),

Audience member/GM Tiviakov: "...you must always follow chess principles...this is very important to do.."

GM Van Kampen: "Well I'm from a new generation...chess has changed in the last 50 years (smiles)...the play is much more concrete now"

[inb4: ironic you like this statement about not adhering to chess principles when it's questionable (at your rating) if you even know/understand them]
