  1. Music stressed me out lol had to bail 2 mins in

  2. Call me a purist but I enjoy Hikaru more when hes crushing.

  3. Haha. Intro was godly. Hikaru was thinking of a game he was playing in the future.

  4. That happens to me, that's why I stopped playing classical and even rapid of 15 minutes.

  5. I've heard that if playing below ranking players it makes your game weaker? Thanks bro

  6. 37:11 hello everybody. Bad chess player here. Should Hikaru not have taken the rook on H6 here or did he not because it was even material or because it closed the file completely for his rooks?

  7. 52:44 yes you bullied yourself by saying you are a mo-ron. Maybe saying if something happened then you should just jump off bridge but come on… obvious sarcasm.

  8. It's good to see this side of Hikaru as well. It reminds you that he is just as human as anyone else. Being tired, sleepy, jet-lagged or anything can affect him and I think we tend do forget these things when all we see is premove take-take-mate. Hope you got some much deserved rest after the stream Hikaru!

  9. Next level title- “Is winning a FIDE Grand Prix bad for streaming?” Make it more relatable 🤑

  10. At 1:05:38, instead of check he can take the rook and fork the bishop and the king with his knight on the next move and that would be ggs 🙂

  11. Do you have an editor? Or do you edit your own videos? Sorry if you've been asked before :3 I am just curious

  12. Am I dumb or is when he is thinking for a while is knight to C6 a good move?

  13. I play both only in Chess24, so I don't make a problem

  14. "You don't look sleepy to me" what a stupid thing to say

  15. What's with the white noise in this video? It's like a wind is passing by just outside.

  16. Man's jetlagged after winning classical games yesterday

  17. Correct me if I am mistaken, but in the first play couldn't he just play Kn6?

  18. I'm dying from the intro lol. Hikaru needs some time to get back in blitz mode.

  19. Hahaha. Nice intro edit. It's good to be able to laugh at yourself sometimes.

  20. I'm getting tired of seeing familiar lines… Or maybe I should take it as a compliment.

  21. I have already asked this before, but is it possible to play an opening or sets of games with different openings that forcablely gives an advantage with white? Let's say a pawn advantage. Black I haven't considered this being possible because of the 1st move attacking advantage. But who knows it's possible we find out it's a draw either way.

  22. You're human alright and that's normal. GM Hikaru. 😊😍😎

  23. @Hikaru you need the automated text reader so it will read aloud your messages while u play. It will be less of a distraction

  24. you just gotta play like Nepo. He plays blitz regardless of which format

  25. I thought he was talking about classical music lol
