  1. 15:47 – why check with the queen? if you check with the rook what does the white king do?

  2. Please make an analysis on Hikaru's latest game in round 5

  3. Yes it is best but not without Magnus.😢

  4. In the classical category Capablanca always stands out

  5. One could sense the anguish in peter leko after Rinat promoted his pawn after having defended so well.This game even made him praise classical chess.

  6. Insane what goes in to winning a game at this level

  7. Sadly, Rinat jumped the gun with that premature pawn promotion at the end…a move that seems like an obvious no-brainer…especially since he knew that he had a draw in hand. But the key point here is that checking the white king with the rook BEFORE promoting the pawn would have activated the rook in this decisive endgame. But after the premature pawn promotion the rook was stranded in the corner with no time join in the attack.

  8. prvi put ostavljan komentar a pratin te od kad si ima 3k suba,samo mi objasni zasto nigdi nema Ivanova pobjeda protiv maxa?

  9. I just had this video playing at 1.5x automatically because I had played a previous video at that speed and ngl, Agad sounds hilarious at such speed 😂

  10. Pls Dear Agadmator. Show us GM Duda Krzysztof game vs GM Murzin Volodor. That was a strong masterpiece.

  11. Hey Antonio. In Rinát name letter A is stressed

  12. classical game is the only true intellectual battle

  13. Nic (J Bruce Feynman Niccolo P. Bentulan) says:

    3rd : Ah another Kazakh like Alisher. Both Alisher & Hans are Jewish. I don't see how this is a coincidence. If Magnus isn't a ra()st then


    Why did that gentile non-American cheater refuse to play Jewish American cheater Hans but not 3 others gentile non-American cheaters

    A – Parham
    B – Pranav
    C – Feller


    I see that for Magnus, you're allowed to cheat only if you're a gentile non-American like Magnus, Parham, Pranav or Feller.

    This may explain why FIDE reprimanded the Norwegian chess federation on 2023Mar05 similar to how FIDE reprimanded the Iranian chess federation on 2020Jun08.



    Why are all of Magnus' cheating victims Jewish-or-American?

    – Alexandra Kosteniuk – 2009 blitz WCC
    – Alireza Firouzja – 2019 blitz WCC (MVL is Jewish; 1 decade later cheats again?)
    – Danya Naroditsky 2x – lichess 2020 & 2021
    – Ian Nepomniachtchi – 2021 classical WCC
    – Sergey Karjakin – 2022 candidates
    – Wesley So – 2022 WFRCC (define 'slow rapid')



    Why are all of Magnus' cheating accusation victims Jewish-or-American?

    – Hans – Jewish American ( could be ashke jew ) – Magnus implies Hans got help from Chris Bird. How else could Hans cheat if Hans didn't get past security?

    – Alisher – Jewish non-American ( could be khazar Jew )

    – Alice Lee – gentile American ( likely gentile for the same reason Carissa Yip x Wesley So are) – I won't be surprised if Magnus accuses Alice of cheating via shoes – in the 2023 women's USCC, after a series of 4 wins, Alice says e had changed shoes. That was 1 day after Alisher's watch.



    Please help get Jewish American Bobby Fischer's successor American Wesley So on Jewish American Lex Fridman's podcast.



    Pablo Mercado: So what is your advice to the Filipino chess players?

    Bobby Fischer: My advice is to give up chess and take up Fischer Random.

    – 2004Oct11, 15 years before Wesley So became the inaugural WFRCC in CLASSICAL time controls.


  14. Nic (J Bruce Feynman Niccolo P. Bentulan) says:

    Hikaru's wife lost to Wesley So's girlfriend, who thanked him as her secret second in the 2023 USCC closing ceremony speech.

    But Atousa almost beat Carissa Yip!

    It wasn't a clean victory. Carissa was losing most of the game. Atousa just blundered in the end.

    Please consider reviewing this game and in particular spreading the rumour that Carissa Yip is dating Wesley So based on Carissa's X header – it's a photo of just Carissa & Wesley (& Leinier & Melik).

    move 54 for black is an 8-move equality puzzle

    it's so sharp

    [Variant "From Position"]

    [FEN "1Q5k/3r1rn1/p3N3/Pp1p2P1/1q2p3/1B2R2P/5P2/6K1 b"]

  15. Can you review the Hikaru vs South African chess hustler?

  16. Rinat wanted to win because that's the only way to get a place in the Candidates… Hard to fault him for that

  17. I badly wanted Rinat to win! Such a crazy endgame battle!

  18. 6:11 “So that the idea behind pawn to c5 right away” (twelve moves and two piece sacrifices later!!!)

  19. Both kings ended up on the opposite sides of the board 😂

  20. The same idea after promoting to queen is possible, Queen B2 check, King E6, then Rook E1 check, and the same perpetual
    is possible

  21. I like Arjun better, because he seems much nicer and always has a genuine smile on his face.

  22. 2:13 you really should explain why after black castles white's pawn fork doesn't work
