  1. โ€œUnless you wanna waste a 1000 moves or 5โ€

  2. There were some good finishes on the prelims. Main card was okay. Pereira is built different

  3. Chama!!! Btw, @agadmator, does Pragg remind you of Do Bronx? To me, their look and smile etc is so similar. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Great analysis of a fascinating game that had it all: blunders, tactics, interesting endgame, and of course, b4!

  5. I played the fabled BOMs-PAPA from North Korea today. I won, actually…

    in chess do you need to have the abc pawns alive for it to be a fianchetto, cause in the game the c pawn was missing and the guy moved his b pawn one square up to b3 you know, in preparation for the fianchetto but I was all like, hey man, is it even a fianchetto if the c pawn is already gone? what do you think chatty ?

    In chess, a fianchetto refers to a specific pawn structure where a bishop is developed to the second rank on the b or g files, supported by pawns. The classic fianchetto setup typically involves moving the b or g pawn one square forward (to b3 or g3 for White, and b6 or g6 for Black), and then placing the bishop on the long diagonal (b2 or g2 for White, and b7 or g7 for Black).

    The c-pawn is not a strict requirement for a fianchetto. While the c-pawn (or f-pawn for a kingside fianchetto) is often still on the board in many typical fianchetto positions, its absence does not invalidate the fianchetto structure. The key elements are the pawn move to b3 (or g3) and the subsequent development of the bishop to b2 (or g2).

    So, even if the c-pawn is missing, as long as the b-pawn is advanced and the bishop is placed on the long diagonal, it is still considered a fianchetto.

  7. I moved from the comfort of my palace to the sty with my two pigs and was victorious in battle.

  8. Endgame masterclass from Pragg ๐Ÿ‘

  9. Prag's king was soo cool marching all over the board

  10. 3:20 fianchetto: "develop (a bishop) by moving it one square to a longย diagonalย of the board."

    The c pawn is irrelevant.

  11. 1:13 Nowadays if you don't except the gambit…you know….people will…the talk around town… you're afraid

    ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ his dead pan humor is one of my favorites

  12. According to Wikipedia, rook and bishop pawns are irrelevant in the fianchetto setup: Fianchetto is a pattern of development where a bishop is developed to the second rank of the adjacent b- or g-file, after moving the knight pawn one or two squares forward.

  13. never would i have thought agad was an mma guy, respect ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ.

  14. I was sad to see Jiri get knocked out like that

  15. Scared, Giri?!?
    Tbh, I don't know what Harry's reply was.

  16. A fantastic Kings march โค
    Prag is upcoming champ ๐Ÿ†

  17. The garry and page fight was what some expected. Venom never really faced a good enough grappler, probably to protect his stock.

    Right now, alex has now solidified himself as the best KO artist in the ufc.

  18. What a game by pragg proving world no 1 ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

  19. UFC Pereira is a killer. He has knocked people out with his left hand, right hand, left foot and right foot. He is the champ in 2 UFC weight divisions and may step up to get a record third belt at heavy weight. Before UFC he was demolishing people in K2 where he was world champion. They call him hands of stone and when you see him hit opponents you will see how appropriate the nickname is. He has destroyed all the strong opposition in his weight class and I think he will be hard to beat. He lost to Adesanya who he had previously beat twice. The only reason he lost that fight is got a little too reckless in a fight and round he was dominating.

  20. Missed a win today unfortunately. It was so winning for Prag.

  21. Prags this pics used often … He just looks like terminator

  22. Beating Magnus, Fabi, Anish in the span of one month. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

  23. 3:14 yes you need the pawns to make the little house for the bishop @agadmator

  24. Hello Agad,
    A pleasure as always watching your analysis. If you ever find time it would be wonderful to see your illumination of a game played between two 2100-2300 players from 2002 ~ J Pallesen v J Aagaard. Maybe not top tier players but it features some beautiful sacrifices. #suggestion

  25. That bishop to a3 tactic was so diabolical, woow.

  26. 1:08 lol "If you dont accept the Gambit people will Talk around town you are afraid" best line of the day ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  27. Same punch Pereira landed on Strickland… Jiri too reckless.

  28. You can call it a โ€œfianchettoโ€ even without the pawn.

    Source: โ€œtrust me broโ€

  29. And Poatan is too good. He literally saved that boring card!

    I would love to see another @agadmator channel dedicated to MMA ๐Ÿ˜‚

  30. At 4:40 – the white queen is a bit more active than the black queen – yes, but also far more exposed. Can Giri not simply harrass the white queen around the board, wasting tempi whilst developing and claiming space?

  31. WONDERFUL. I was looking at Bxf6, or Bxh7, since those are "the moves I have just been talking about"; or Qxf6 since a queen sacrifice is always the subject of excitement… and you reveal b4. Of course. Well done, Agad; as so often, we are humbled by your simple but totally effective misdirection.

  32. What an incredibly strong field, when Agad reveals the table at the end.. Wow.
