  1. Thank you for the video, Antonio. We're really glad to have all these amazing players here in Bucharest. The name Deac is pronounced a bit differently though. You have a really good idea now with the "deck" pronunciation but the "a" is a strong letter. You pronounced it okay on the first video where the final c wasn't all that great. now if you combine the two you'll get it right. Romanian is one of these weird language where all the letters from a word are strongly pronounced. so once again, feel free to try it out in another video or if you just want to enjoy the show, it's pronounced like Deak (in Croatian)

  2. Agad just call Bogdan Deac by his first name, I know that it's a common name in Croatia so you won't have any problems with it. You're still pronouncing it wrong 🙂

  3. "That was correctly captured" – I'm finished. I can't believe I wanted to push the g7 pawn 🙂

  4. 3 hours later the Medo has not finished the bone 😀

  5. That Romanian player is great player i hope we see him in the next years in top gms tournaments

  6. The Commentators after MVL’s 25.g4: The romanian is young, unexperienced, just above 2600, a last minute replacement…etc
    The Commentators after Deac’s 25…b3!!: A young prospect, could be soon into 2700’s, showing maturity in his play…etc.

  7. New opening from agadmator:
    e4 e5 nf3 nc6 kb5
    The bongcloud, Spanish variation

  8. Hi agadmator – first time commenter. The way to pronounce Deac’s last name is like day-yuck :de (like from ‘day’ ) + ac (like from kayak). Cheers!

  9. Of course, Deac won because he played B4! There is no coincidence, the hyperturbodelayed reverse evan’s gambit is undefeatable 🙂

  10. It's DeAaaaaac!!!
    Hope you get it right next time. I enjoy all of your videos and it kinda hurts my soul that you misspronunciate romanian names, but get all the other pretty darn great :))

  11. i really want to see a game where MVL wins the game… the games you showed are the ones which he loses in good style :)))

  12. Medo is part of this chanle, i am very happy that his place not be captured, i hope we see agadgirl in video very soon that she say hello every one to all, thats be a briliant moment for agad and thus chanle. Thanks agad

  13. Don't feel agadmator your pronunciation and way of speaking amazing "your English speaking is better than my teacher" ! 👍🙂

  14. Romanian is super phonetic. Always pronounce anything the way it is written. In this case, De – Ac But in one syllable.

  15. There is a very strong player who is beyond magnus

  16. Lasker: When you see a good move, look for a better one.
    Me: When you see a good square, look for a better one.

    MVL had the right idea, and the right piece. But his choice of square on which to execute what would have ultimately been a winning move turned into a losing move. Happens to EVERYBODY.

  17. The wife (maybe): I have a bone to pick with you.
    The dog (definitely): I have a bone to pick without you. Don't even think about disturbing me.

  18. Čini mi se da Rumuni u komentarima govore da mi se ime izgovara DEAK kad bi čitao po srpskohrvatskom. Nije DEK. Dugo a kao u seljak ili merak. Mislim ko ga j**e. Ali za sljedeći video…

  19. It's really funny when he took out the king in place of bishop 😂

  20. 1:06 Agadmator grabs the king.
    Me: Ooooh – The Bong cloud!
    1:09 Agadmator moves the king from e1 to b5.
    Me: Wow – Must have been a Bong tornado!


  22. With Agadmator, his pet dog also became famous.

  23. I hoped for some Bong Cloud action when you were about to move the King instead of the Bishop

  24. Ke1-b5 had me cracking up xD saludos de México everybody!! hope everybody is well; take care!!


  26. 😀 It is pronounced Deac, not Dec. I dont know who helped you but he/she helped you wrong 😉

  27. It is not pronounced like "deck" it is "deh-ah-c". There's an extra A in there

  28. This reminded me of Garou from One Punch man. Or Piccolo from Dragon Ball

  29. Deac is pronounced like De Yuck. It comes from Diacon, a traditional church role.

  30. Kao što rekoše braća Rumuni u komentarima, čitaj ga kao Deak. Inače potiče od mađarskog Deák, a na našem je to Đak.

  31. Calm down while moving pieces. There's no hurry. we can wait. XD
