  1. Just want to thank you Levy for putting so much time and effort in your recaps, they're truly the best!

  2. Out of all chess, you are the best content creator balancing fun and seriousness perfectly. Thanks for all the good stuff.

    P. S. take a deep breath before pinning love comments.

  3. 25:50 — I'll see your Buffalo/Ottawa fight, and raise with Detroit/Colorado 1997. THAT was a slobber-knocker if ever there was one.

  4. Dude obviously wanted to end up on a Gotham Chess video for not moving his queen 👀👀

  5. I skipped right away to 22:10 because I wanted to hear him pronounce Pragg's full name xDD didn't stumble as I was expecting him to.

  6. Ah yes, promote to make 4 knights, the perfect strategy, thanks for the theory Levy

  7. I love watching these recaps. Entertaining and instructive. Keep up the great work Levy!

  8. levyyyyyyyyyyyyy why u changed the title 🙁 I liked the other one but yes I appreciate your effort so much best of luck for future efforts

  9. “Only move your queen never develop your pieces” – Levy I think

  10. I like how Levy's russian accent comes out sometimes during chess talk then he starts talking about hockey and goes full New York.

  11. If you cant tell if Levy is talking about what actually happened in the game, or what could have happened in an engine line its time to go to checkers.

  12. "The games were just odd, a lot of 1 move mistakes, there were opening disasters…."

    Wait, were you accidentally watching my blitz games?

  13. Nimzo-Indian video perhaps?? Love your stuff man!

  14. Levy, you’re also worth more than a Queen. You’re a King, king.

  15. You are correct I am wrong because I say says:

    The thumbnail is too catchy to be not clicked on

  16. My man Levy out here referencing Biron vs. Emery, a true man of culture 👌

    Obligatory RIP Ray Emery, world lost a good soul way too soon

  17. Please don't disturb Duda's Queen. She is sleeping.

  18. International master in chess Grandmaster at making thumbnails 🤣🤣🤣😂😂

  19. That Magnus guy seems like he’s okay at chess. Maybe he’ll be the next Levy someday

  20. That last match was elegantly orchestrated. Beautiful display of chess.

  21. Is Jan-Krzysztof Duda actually young? Or why is everyone calling him that

  22. Gotham Firouzja is just pronounced Firouzja not Firoozha

  23. "4 goons in the neighborhood and they are all carrying blunt objects" Lmao.

  24. That's the best thumbnail I've seen in a while

  25. he structures these like bedtime stories with a resolution at the end were its all solemn and quiet. briliant storytelling.

  26. you are pronouncing FirouzJa wrong bro he is not Spanish that's a J!

  27. Omg I actually guessed the pawn to e4 move that Shakhriyar played at the end, I’ve never been this thrilled about a pawn move before

  28. i love your recap levi, You may me cheer for prag

  29. Levy you're the best! Great recap. Listening to you pronounce everyone's names correctly makes me want to speak more languages

  30. Can you make a video recommendation about MMA for folks who have never watched it before? Or make a video where you analyze different chess players tactical styles and actually compare them to the MMA fighters you mention?

  31. Probably my favourite recap ever. Fascinating and exciting games

  32. Firouzja vs. Wesley So; what a beautiful game!! It's a totaly wild and insane. It's out of this wolrd!! Chess at its best.
