  1. I dont want to spoil? Video title: Praggnanandhaa Beats Magnus in Classical for The First Time!

  2. Another pause the moment, but there was no b pawn to play b4

  3. "This time no spoilers" but with the outcome directly in the title 🙂

  4. What is happening that we're supposed to leave a few rows empty for? The title seems to give away any surprise in the video, is there something I missed?

  5. off topic but i want to suggest somethhing you should make one game of the month video any match which you havent shown

  6. Great video, but why would you refrain from spoiling the result in the beginning of the video when your title spoils it first?

  7. "I don't want to spoil it" – check the first three words of the title!

  8. Agadmator first senetence : don't spoil what is going on for others.

    Title of the video : prags first win against carlsen in classical


  9. Considering the title of the video, "Praggnanandhaa Beats Magnus", the outcome was not too surprising LOL.

  10. Magnus will come up with an excuse about how he cheated.

  11. #suggestion if possible adding the clock in the overlay would be very helpful, as it will also give more context and info about the moves and player's mindset, making it more apparent why a player made a mistake or blunder (if under time pressure)

  12. Doesn’t Pragg know no one can beat Magnus?

  13. Line of the year !!!!😂 4:13
    "pragg pretty much turns into an engine"

  14. Not sure what surprise could be spoiled? The title ends all suspense.

  15. At the end of the day, I think Magnus learned a good lesson from this loss against Pragg. I think that by move 13 Magnus was already pretty much lost in this game…LOST…because of a poor opening choice, and also because he tried to “experiment” with the opening against Pragg. And for that he paid dearly! With every passing tournament, Pragg is getting more mature, experienced, and seasoned as a top-ranked chess player…whereas Magnus is already past his peak!

  16. Two of my favorite Agadmator phrases,
    "… share with your friends at the library" and "Magnus Carlson resigned the game"

  17. Why does the retreating knight need to defend c pawn n block the bishop, when the b pawn is free?

  18. When you are the strongest in the world; you losing makes a huge fuss.

  19. I saw Qd1 because Magnus had a perpetual check threat.

  20. this game is my favorite game for prag plus thank god magnus lost however hekaro with h7 move disappointed me he could've done what prag done

  21. Agad: Dont want to spoil it

    Me: Looks at title of vidoe…

  22. Pragg also overtook Vishy in Ranking 😊

  23. "I don't want to spoil anything"
    Title of the video: "Praggnanandhaa beats Magnus for the first time in classical chess!"
    A true Agadmator ❤😂

  24. lol you say dont spoil anything then put it in the title!

  25. Antonio, you asked people not to spoil the result…but look at the title of your video?

  26. Don't spoil it In the comments? U spoiled it in the title

  27. Hello, Antonio! I always watch your videos and love enjoying them every day, just wanted to share a little comment in case you might read it, please don't spoil who wins the match on the title of the video! It's better to keep the suspense with a catchy title like "Can Praggnanandhaa finally beat Magnus in Classical??" Dunno, just giving my two cents here, in any case, keep up the amazing work and thank you so much for all the content you pour out so passionately all year long! Lots of love from Argentina!

  28. It's obvious that prag spent months preparing for this one day and Magnus spent the previous night partying with hot chicks. Not to mention prag had white.

  29. I am back after 1year missing my chess addiction 😢

  30. Not that I do not respect Magnus he's an all time great but I love seeing him lose once in a while to prove he is human, That said I'm a big fan of Pragg so this is a double win for me

  31. I agree, Magnus is more in fun mode nowdays. Nothing against Pragg, he played great. But he beat guy who is bored of being the best.

  32. "Please don't spoil this for everyone" -> puts result in title

  33. You can’t say no spoilers of what happens in the video when the title of video gives it away lol but maybe title has been updated since first posting

  34. Antonio: I don't want to spoil anything, so let's dive straight into it
    Title: Praggnanandhaa Beats Magnus in Classical for The First Time

  35. That Magnus failed to create opportunity(ies) to castle beats me nonetheless.

  36. At 8.43 min – for black why not Qf2 or Qe3 – leading to a perpetual if white queen moves

  37. Going forward Magnus will play pragg with the same level of respect when playing fabi, or hikaru…

  38. The cute little Indian boy who gave Hikaru a run for his money is now a giant slayer. Great Job Pragg.

  39. Agad: "I don't wanna spoil anything"
    Also agad thinking about the video title "Praggnanandhaa Beats Magnus in Classical for The First Time!".
    I love you man hahaha <3
