Chess has some very high quality videos:

There are many chess clips online, including the 2016 Carlsen v. Karjakin event, but not all of them have very good production value like these.
Alternative pronunciation of Mr. Karjakin ( by CNN anchor ) ?

Carjackin' - lol. The Ukranian/ Russian я is often transcribed with a j, which can be misleading for English speakers, but it sounds more like an English ya. The Russian pronunciation of Карякин (Ukrainian: Карякін) is kɐˈrʲakʲɪn.
