  1. i mean chess is fun but i cant imagine having fun when my opponent dont let me play any chess at all. just kidding what a brutal game

  2. 16:45 .. so Magnus is no longer at his peak? He is very young still. I'm new to chess, so I don't know for how long a player usually dominates

  3. 14:39
    But you can take that rook, then pawn takes d4, then rook takes h6

  4. For those who feel that something is wrong with this video: "get outta here"

  5. Hey Levy, do you still consider this Magnus' best game every per march 2023?

  6. Great stuff Levy! But is there a Capablanca game or a Botvinnik game that is comparable? Or Karpov maybe?

  7. It’s not chess anymore, it’s art. The thought flow is as fluent as any brush stroke.

  8. Rook D4 loses the game right away for magnus…

  9. Honestly levi tried best to show us the tactics……but the game looked so boring and typical.I mean in those cases u cant do anything very much different.

  10. Great game but his game against Anish was even crazier

  11. In 14:38, can’t black just take the rook and if pawn takes then black rook takes white queen? If white queen takes rook after black queen takes rook, just black queen takes white queen.

  12. As a chess player, I just love your videos. Keep going, keep progressing and keep winning

  13. I can't understand what you're saying in 14:45 in the video he can take the rook cause it's queen to queen

  14. At 14:45 why can’t you take rook. If queen takes room and pawn takes queen then black’s room could take white queen and black is winning by a room?????

  15. Instead of GM, they should add the Carlson rank

  16. If magnus was asian, his parents would've said, he could've done better 😂😂

  17. says:

    Sounds about right

  18. bishop
    to d7 whould have been the best play to counterplay

  19. you were so polite back then!

  20. You can take the rook on Qd4. Because after pawn takes rook takes qh6

  21. 14:36 but if the queen takes the rook and u take the queen with your pawn, than the black rook takes your queen, so why can’t take black the rook on d4?

  22. Magnus best game yet until he played anish giri and sac'd his queen in like move 8 for 3 pieces and won

  23. 14:45 after Q takes rook, Pawn takes queen, levon could take magnus's queen and be a rook up!!

  24. At 14:36 is rd4 a blunder??
    Queen takes rook
    Pawn takes queen
    Rook takes queen

  25. Magnus is no longer at the peak of his career?

  26. This is how i envision my chess games going, but unfortunately my opponent never agrees.

  27. Do you like sticky toffee pudding, Levy?

  28. 14:37 can’t just black queen takes? I mean you take it with pawn then enemy rook still defended right?

  29. Unstructured learning content. All bullshit. No one will ever get better watching these videos.
