  1. You've got a nice king it would be a shame if someone cornered it.

  2. You need to center Lupulescu's name. Nevermind you saw it.

  3. Could you do a video in your native language?

  4. That queen move did it all. Always feel fear when the queen moves just one square. …from Ireland.

  5. The correct spelling for Deac is, D (same spelling as in DOG), E (as in the first E from Enter), A (as in the first A from Airplane) C (as in Cat). The letters should be pronnounced exactly as they sound in those words. Try it!

  6. Agadmator, great explanation of the game. Thank you for sharing.

  7. after white Q took b7, I would of liked to see black bishop to a3 instead of a5. Haide Romania

  8. Did you sell that Bitcoin donation? It’s worth much more that 9.5k now

  9. 6:35 i was thinking about black moving the bishop to a3, is that a possible move? By bringing the rock on the b line in the next move, who can also capture the pawn at b3 if played

  10. Fabi took less than 1 minutes for his 1st 15 moves. But this bugger doesn't mention home preparation even once. If Anand would have a similar game, he would have started with home preparation and ended with home preparation.

  11. I think Fabi just tortured and forced opponent to resign

  12. When Fabi plays Qxb7, he's a chess god. When I play Qxb7, it's because I have no idea how to continue my attack and I'm just hoping it's not a blunder.

  13. A very bland game. Lupulescu trading pieces as if he had something prepared afterwards.

  14. Constantin Lupulescu : 10/10
    As for "Deac" you can put it in google translate in romanian.
    Keep up the good work, i love your content.

  15. If you are an ace defender, then the French is probably in your repertoire. It's a "come and get me if you can" defense and more often than not the French player MUST sustain pressure on the Queenside or else. The French has its own unique flavor in chess that way – where the board has a clear boundary slice when the white e-pawn advances. And the battle centers around that; with black seeking the best moment for the freeing f6 pawn move.

  16. I’m not Romanian, but I gather from the comments it’s “De Ak”.

  17. I'm romanian and Deac is not a common name; only the second time I've heard it. My first instinct was to treat it as a misspelling of Dac, which were a people who lived in the region during ancient times.

  18. That why french defense is the worst black opening

  19. did you hear the computer chess championship is playing the Double Bongcloud!!!!

  20. I'm struggling to find reasons as to why people dislike his videos. They're all very informative, entertaining and educational for people who want to understand how to play chess. An excellent channel for fans of the game.

  21. Deadass… pronounced Deac like "Deadass"…

  22. I get a lot of my education on chess from you reviewing games on your channel. Would it be possible to switch it up every once in a while and switch it to white on top and black on the bottom so we can get both perspectives. I'm way too used to "being the white pieces" in your videos.

    I really appreciate your videos and I think you're great at explaining the game and differing strategies throughout the games.

  23. At 5:27 minutes
    What if 1)Kxe6..fxe6 2)Qe6+ king moves and bishop is yours
    And if 1) Kxe6 and black doesn't capture knight then it's knight e6 with very good position

  24. 6:15 Bishop to a3 is actually very good for black because if they take, you can skewer king and queen with rook

  25. Your channel is so unique that the subscribers and you agad yourself have to work on the content. Its quite impressive. Also please cover this game of the one and only mikhail Tal. #suggestion tal vs koblents 1961.

  26. Fabi is truly the cold blooded super GM

  27. Just switch the e with a and it's ok agad,De-ac ,a c like k.Or c from Caruana

  28. "Why didn't you guys say something?"- Me, watching it 10 hours later: surprised pikachu face.

  29. Luxury or no luxury always be proud of your brand and try working to improve. I love luxurious lifestyles. All thanks to crypto I just got my first Lamborghini 💝. My advice to y'all invest in cryptocurrency or gold.

  30. When Queen attacked Black's bishop, Ba3 for sacrifice could have been much better than Bc5, I feel, Also White queen is in line with his King with just pawn in between

  31. Lmao I like how Fabi had that great attack, but as soon as he was one pawn up, in cold-blood he just traded into the endgame where there was no hope of anything but a slow, positional death. Fabi is clinical.

  32. Blundered 10 seconds to a slightly un-centered name that mostly nobody noticed

  33. Lupulescu reminds me of Lelouch I have no idea why

  34. LOL I was renderizing a video (assignment) and I thought that it ended real quick at [10:26] hahahahahaha

  35. 😀 Its Deac!! Not Daec, not Dec!! 😀

  36. Agadmator: Why didn't you guys said anything? Coz we didn't noticed till you told us…

  37. new chess player: hey how this game works? what are their names?

    me: you see that rook on the 7th rank? that's a f**king pig

  38. Why didn't you guys say something? I was trying to but you couldn't here me over YouTube 😂😂😂

  39. Almost forgotten "we have completely new game"

  40. why didnt u guys said anything about the name beacause it was not live

  41. Hey Antonio, you should centre Constantin’s name before you start recording.
