  1. 6:02 What is the word he says ("a nice ???") after moving the rook to E1?

  2. Would bringing the king to the f file work to prevent the draw?

  3. Thank you for presenting this game,from Romania!

  4. Agadmator a advise to u as a subscriber plzz try to cover faster i watched this 14 hours ago in gotham chess chanel with other games sa well.

  5. I guess it should have been gasping* here @agadmator. No Worries ! Anyways Great Content.

  6. I believe the two idioms you are conflating are "gasping for air", and "grasping at straws".

  7. Happy to see that my experience with semi-Slav aren't much worse than a super GM.

  8. OSF or called as Our Silicon Friends ^^

  9. Super GM Grasping For Air & Super Medo Gasping for Food

  10. The title says "Grasping for air" – should it not be "Gasping for air"?

  11. Yeeeey, a fellow Romanian young GM ! 😊 It's pronounced "de-ak" 😀😀.

  12. I love how you said ,,Bucuresti" like a romanian.

  13. Romanian is a Romance language, and so it is their "c" letter.

    It does have quite a lot of slavic influences (da!), so it needs a letter for the slavic "Ц" (cyrillic) / "c" (latin).
    As romanian already has a "c" letter with an already assigned function and sound, it uses a different letter.
    That letter is "ț" (NOT "t", see for example the name of the city Constanța

  14. Gg for Anish going for the Slav defense vs a romanian

  15. I knew Deac wasn't going to win when the queen check he gave was the move I would have played in that position.

  16. Finally it's nice to see medo in his spot. Many videos have passed without him being there and it's cause for concern.

  17. Grasping for air? Shouldn’t it be “gasping”? I know English is your second language and you are exceptionally good at it, but I’m just saying.

  18. Romanian language has a really simplistic pronunciation. Deac would be pronounced as read. D-e-a-c. With an accent on E. dEac. No reading between the lines. Simply dEac. Sound the letters without any weight or inflection aside from the accent.

  19. Amazing video Antonio. #agadmator

    I'd like to tell a little correction though- it's 'gasping for air' and not 'grasping for air'.

    Again, great wok as always!

  20. I bet his grandfather had been spell his name like "Deák" 😉 (like Ferenc Deák, the great Hungarian politician).

  21. It's perfect chess by my Romanian Young Master Bogdan Daniel DEAC ~tivate~ it's a oauuu play !!

  22. hello everyone , Medo says yes I have a bone😀

  23. black pawn to b4 gets the participation trophy: "that kind of a move sometimes does make sense, but it loses the game on the spot 🤷🏼‍♂️" lol thanks for trying b4, maybe next "sometime" 😎👍 (>'.')^^('.'<)

  24. after Kc2 Rg2 couldn't white move his rook to d2?
