When Magnus Carlsen Played An Illegal Move

Magnus Carlsen being the best player of our generation barely makes any mistakes, that is until this game, where Magnus played an ILLEGAL move.. Something world champions almost never do.



  1. I don't think this was an intentional illegal move by Magnus. It looked like it was in 'the heat of the moment' and for a split second he took his fingers off the piece due to the stress of the game.

  2. I love chess channels but this might just be the worst one I've ever seen. You keep confusing the notation (like saying a6 as a3, b5 as g5, etc), give wrong information to the viewers that he did an illegal move (Folks, in this game, Magnus did not do an illegal move! Kc4 is a legal move but he already played Kd4 which is also perfectly legal. An illegal move is one where you play a move that breaks the rules of chess. Like putting your king in check or playing a piece to a square it can't move to.) and also giving wrong evaluations. Magnus was a piece up and it wasn't even properly mentioned in the video. When Savchenko got 3 pawns for the piece you called it 'equal' whereas it's actually much better for the World Champion. That explains why you have so less subscribers compared to better chess channels.

  3. I don't even know chess but that was fun to watch

  4. Boy do I love it when he “LOSES” he always underestimates his opponents but most of all losing in the championship round and getting caught 😂😂😂… and his facial expressions priceless 😂😂😂…

  5. Then why is the clock button there? If it is to signal that their turn is over then if he did not signal his turn is over then he still should be able to adjust it. Before I stir up more angry comments, this is my opinion and I respect yours no matter what, so let us be peaceful and not make this a YouTube comment with Twitter replies.

  6. This was so entertaining thank you Mr narrator 😊

  7. oh wow, a person makes a mistake, this has the same energy as making a 2 minutes speech about how your parent by accident put too much salt in your food.
    People make mistakes, we aren't flawless and that is ok.

  8. Chess is not just a game, it's a beautiful art of strategy and creativity that never fails to challenge and inspire us. Who else loves the thrill of the checkmate?

  9. I have been binge watching Magnus videos and I have no clue on chess.😂
