Quick note from Lex: The camera on Magnus died 20 minutes in. Most folks still just listen to audio-only version, but here on YouTube we did our best to still make it interesting to watch & listen by adding image overlays. I mess things up sometimes, like in this case, and it hits me hard when I do. I'm sorry for this. I'm always working hard to improve. I hope you understand. Thank you for your patience and support along the way. I love you all.
I like to think all the pawns are mixed up as well
People been trying to "patch" chess
I love the idea of Fischer Random. Taking a lot of opening prep out of the game means players have to make their own moves much earlier, and I think the more pieces are on the board, the trickier it is to find the best moves (because more pieces usually make more complicated positions), more room for error, and more room for small differences in skill to turn into decisive advantages.
Fischer random shouldbbe the future of long time format
Lmao Magnus forgot about castling
6:58 – Qf7 takes own Knight is not checkmate as Black's King can also take its own piece to escape.
Emory Tate’s son is a G
Did they ever arrest chest player who broke the players fingers
Not gonna lie I hate pawns but I think I haven’t had enough fun yet to enjoy pawns
How about 5D Chess with Multiverse and Time Travel?
Thank you gentlemen.
capablanca chess with random arrangement!
Wesley So breaks Magnus on this games.
It gives variety, I wonder why this games doesn't get too much attention
Fischer Random is the next evolution of Chess. I think it will propel the game forward. Chess at a high level is important but the only place for chess to go after that point is Fischer Random. Take away the theory and leave the Man.
The best way to improve chess is to simply allow the Queen to truly be all powerful and letting it also move like a knight.
Bobby Fischer was ahead of his time
I love a good game of 960, but it can take a while to get paired for a game. It should be more popular, it's actually a better if you enjoy calculation and novelty. There should be a no mirroring rule though, maybe you can't mirror more than 5 moves.
Why still photos???
Gotta love how Magnus pulled a Bobby Fischer and turned off the cameras when Lex was busy!
ban an croissant
I really love 960 chess. Is so creative and hard. No memomy lines, just chess
It will never cease to amaze me that humanity was able to create what is essentially the perfect boardgame 1000 years ago. I know some things have changed in that time but the basic game, the locations of the pieces hasn't.
Think of all the money spent developing new games in the modern age and not one of them has ever come close to matching chess, in 1000 years no one will be playing Monopoly or Call of Duty but they will still be playing chess.
I don't even play the game and what Fischer said makes 100% sense to me. The memorization has destroyed creativity. If you randomize the back row pieces, the creativity is forced to return.
Love Fischer Random, but if you want too level play Niemann Certain Chess lol 😂😂😂 Engines rev with that one… I assume of course
Thirty years from now folks will still be complaining that "the camera on Magnus died" — this is history and the room for camera error in 2022 is inexcusable — camera works just fine when interviewing guests who claim they have seen USP's, ghosts, goblins and little green men – but certainly one of the most significant and advanced humans of our time – Magnus Carlsen — the camera on him dies during what could have been the record of a historic interview — all that education and knowledge and yet still camera problems — humans being all too human lol
why are parts of the video just images of each of them instead of videos of them lol. it makes it less engaging
Even Fischer random will be solved eventually, it’s just going to take a lot more time. Every possible position will be given a name and people will plug those positions into chess engines and develop separate theory for every possible starting position
why do youtube subtitles suck soooooo bad?!!!
fischer random is a joke.
this is why miniature skirmish wargames are more interesting than chess to me, the variability of the initial setup, as well as varied victory conditions makes for an infinitely more interesting strategic and tactical experience.
They say endgame teaches you the chess
Well chess960 really feels like you're already at the endgame
As I am still learning chess and enjoying it, I cannot claim to enjoy this setup. I can’t even watch the current tournament.
Pawns on ranks 1 and 8 is interesting
How can the average person care about "960" or such? We do not spend our lives playing chess so this is a discouragement.
The only way to save chess is to use the rule that every time you take a piece, you have to drink a shot. Now THAT would make for some interesting games.
i would recommend not removing the video element of the clip.
fischer random is cool but for casual games it seems a bit obnoxious since it requires more preparation to set up
the main issue with chess is that the more the theory advances the more the early game will be "solved". This creates a rapidly rising skill floor for any upcoming talent. Basically, if you wanna have any shot in competition you need to KNOW your first 6-7 moves perfectly which is VERY hard to do given how many different combinations there are.
Chess960 keeps the advantage of knowing theory, but makes less of a requirement since the early game will be randomized such that memorizing openings is futile.
"I don't like memorizing things so I createa a game likechess, but niw you havr to memorize 960 times more
pre-chess is better
I'm pretty sure FIscher would be really upset knowing Fischer Random got recognized but without the proper time control which make the whole idea pointless. The game forces you to come up with creative ideas and its kinda hard to get it with very short time control.
He called them maps lol
They could also do more like e.g. create a 2 headed pawn that can take pieces either 1 or 2 diagonal squares away. And place it randomly in the front row. This would create exponentially more random openings
It's the future.
