Grandelius vs Sam Sevian Live on TV with heart rate monitors!

At january the 5th Swedens number 1 Nils Grandelius faced “The new Bobby Fisher” in US big talent only 15-year old Sam Sevian.
The match was broadcasted on TV by Expressen and was seen by a massive audience (above 300 000!)
What was special was that the players used heart rate monitors that showed their hearth rates to the audience.
I was the expert in explaining the moves in the studio but the biggest Expert was without any doubts World Champion Magnus Carlsen who joined the show and commented on the games and gave his thoughts on the players and their future careers.
A must to Watch!
