A Flood of World Championship Videos

The 2021 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship match at Dubai finished a couple of days ago, so when I started compiling a short list for this month's featured video, I received a flood -- no, make that a tsunami -- of ideas for the short list. Here's something you don't see every day.

Harry Mack Improvises Rap About The World Chess Championship (2:40) • '[Published on] Nov 27, 2021'

The description starts,

Harry Mack may just be the best freestyle rapper in the world, and Chess.com was honored to have him rap the story of the World Chess Championship. Listen to these incredible bars he spits about the great like Emanuel Lasker, Garry Kasparov, and OF COURSE Magnus Carlsen and Ian Nepomniachtchi.

Now I have some time to spend making sense of that flood. Where to start?
