You could do a follow-up video with 4 of the best games of the cold war era and end with a modern (engine) era game
Those were really beautiful games and I intend to emulate them.
It's called the Evergreen Game because there is always more to learn from it.
After reviewing each opening, it’s clear that “each position plays itself” lol
Levy, I noticed a similar use of the Octopus Knight on d3 in the Fischer-R. Byrne game in the 1963 US Championship. In fact, Byrne has his Queen and Rook aligned up identically behind the Knight as in the Kasparov game. The knight in this case did not stay there long but was used with lethal effect as a sac on f2 with the game ending at around move 21. That Fischer went 11-0 in this tourney speaks to his prowess at the time. Fischer has a way of burning the Byrne Brothers (pun intended).
me watching this video is 2026 😳
Game 3 is earily similar to Magnus Carlsen vs Max Deutsch
1:05 very interesting.. I’ll keep that in mind next time I am back in the day
Take a second look at 24:04, en passant wasn't added to the rulebook until the 1880s, that's like half a century after this game 🙂
لك خالص احترامي وتقديري
لديك شخصية جميلة ومحبوبة
انت استلذ مبدع ورائع
The trees sound is in a quantum state. So yes and no.
If a tree were to fall in a forest, and there were nothing around to hear it, it would still create a sound. The vibrations in the air would still be present, there just isn't an ear drum and brain to decipher the waves.
That Anderson was a savage. Love him!
Naah, thumbnail shows only 4 boards. Clickbait !
Adolf Anderssen has broken out of the matrix.
OMFG that's a sailor's first mate, mate 🙂
he need a part two
Thanks! Gimme 5! 😉😁
This was rly amusing and fascinating. Thx 🙂
First game was played in a opera house
It has lessons you should espouse
People singing instruments playing
While Morphy had his opponents praying
Paul Morphy played white, two people played black
Morphy sacked a knight with the winning attack
From https://youtu.be/kXpNL71TsV8 "Morphy's Opera House Game (rap)"
As per stockfish in game 3 whites move Nf6+ is a blunder and takes white from a +6.5 to +0.8 , however black gives it back with another blunder with Qxf3 . Black is probably lost with white showing +2.75, but the final nail in the coffin for black was playing Nxe7.
Ofcourse the alternate moves in these situations are very hard to find, I would imagine, and probably even today only the best of the best can find the correct moves. Over all very beautiful games
Levy's obviously sick at chess but his presentation and teaching skills and his blatant enthusiasm really make these videos. Really fun 36 minutes!
Every game can be recorded and that helps. The most brilliant of chess players have extraordinary memories. Some can play simultaneous exhibitions blindfolded. I think that one of the keys to mastering this skill is being able to remember specific positions.
The way he animated the games is just amazing and hilarious 😂 . Good job and I hope you continue posting contents like this 🔥
Wow. my mind is blown. i love chess
WHY MUST I KNOW THIS????
The first time machine changes chess forever.
Whats up with adolfs pushing it all the way to edge
The theme in game no.5 is similar to the game of the century featuring bobby fisher.
Magnus Carlesn and I have all of this down to win by structure these days. All of these videos required piece coordination more than raw tactics.
GK ' s OctopusKnight is awesome 👌
7:25 found in chess universe app
These games are elevated by the enthusiasm and energy of the presenter. Great job 👍🏽 👏🏽
All 5 games is Awesome,
Just Fabulous 😍

I’m tryna learn chess. I’m realizing I’m just too stupid to get good at it.
Game 4, could queen just move to c3 and cover all options… Yeah he loses a rook or a queen, but he can block mate at that point 👀
700 rapid here – I've been using these videos to use general theory in place of thinking for a full minute, and it's really helping my rating climb. Thanks!
You're such a good commentator <333
The best games everyone must know is found in a book by Irving chernav I believe it's called the 62 best games of Chess ever it's quite old maybe out of date in some places but Amazon will probably have it
Love these videos, thanks so much!
Your thumbnails only deserve "contempt" – sorry dude – #lacking originality
Brilliant block of the queen by Anderson in the immortal game!
heres a valuable lesson. promote to knight and checkmate if you have 4+ minutes, rook for 10+ seconds, and queen for <1 seconds
Karpov could have easily removed the octopus as soon as it was placed with bishop e2 and trade the bishop. or do I miss something ?
Great video mate. Thanks!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son so that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life
