  1. Hey agadmator, do you intentionally say "sorry about that" and reach to under your desk in every video? is it a meme? or you actually have to turn something on/off when you do that?

  2. What a title and a Thumbnail. I wasn't planning on watching this. Ultimate clickbait.

  3. Nice to have the "Sorry about that" moment back

  4. Howell commentating on Makhsoodlo vs Nodirbek "Makhsoodlo should be careful, he is playing against demon"

  5. Idk if its just me but it feels like these super GMs are resigning more and more after the point where there is truly nothing more to be done here. I'd be really interested to see what eval average the top players resign at individually.

  6. It seems wrong to call this 'classical' – when it involves changing the set-up of classical chess in quite a drastic way. How about using an 'F' for Fischer-freestyle instead? Or maybe 'Fc' for the long version, along with 'Fr', 'Fb' and 'Fa' for the rapid, blitz and armageddon games?

  7. Ding ding ding… What're we going to do with you?

  8. I have learned not to read the top comment before watching the video because it usually spoils the results

  9. Ding needs to step away for a while and train in a hyberbolic time chamber.

  10. In order to reduce white’s first move advantage they should only reveal the position at the board and then start the clock immediately.

  11. Ding is methodical and this is Radom. Just not his best mode.

  12. First time I have seen such a loser world champion. hahahaha This is the reason Magnus said that world championship between Ding and Ian is the world's most weakest world championship. Both are not strong players.

  13. People who are saying that Ding doesn’t deserve to be world champion are probably newer chess fans.
    From 2010 to 2020 Ding was a monster capable of beating the best players even Magnus.
    If you want to appreciate how strong Ding is just watch his game against Fabiano in the candidates 2020, where he faced a 20-moves-long, home prepared engine line and was able to refute it and win the game over the board while the clock was ticking.
    I’m not sure if he will recover and go back to his usual form but make no mistake he’s not a champion by luck.

  14. I have no idea what happened to Ding in 2024. I remember him playing wonderful chess. I have never seen a fall from grace this bad

  15. It feels like every time I watch your videos, Ding is losing. 🤣🤣

  16. Following the chess principal:
    “push pawns in front of your rooks”
    “(unless the rook is on the flank or next to the king)”

  17. For every game that ding loses, Ian kicks himself.Thinking why should it be this guy I lose the WCC to?

  18. @10:46: What would happen if ding continued to push the black pawns? Looks like the white king could not stop both.

  19. the pressure of thinking he needs to perform as champion is getting to ding i think

  20. Everyone knows that but the problem for Ding is Nodirbek knows it too!

  21. Antonio is my favourite Chess commentator and Agadmator is my favourite chess channel but Freestyle Chess is a major turn off for me, I just don't see the point of it.

  22. funnily enough that endgame isn't even trivial to win , because once black's C pawn starts pushing you have to capture it with your king , otherwise Blacks king will get to B8 and its a draw. But of course players of that caliber see that easily.

  23. 0:33 you say "Ding won second". NO. Ding came in last, 8th place. The qualifier pairs #1 with #8, #2 with #7, etc.

  24. Usually losers of World champions never gain back momentum they had previously. But it's sad to see Ding is losing momentum after winning it.

  25. I wonder why I'm getting a feeling that Ding is a "paper tiger".

  26. Ding will always be known as the worst world champion in chess history

  27. Ding became world champion and quit chess!!!!

  28. Ding just feels like he is under incredible stress ever since he became the world champion. Has a target on his back. He wins, it's as it should be. But if he loses, "Oh the world champion lost!" Now we have a better understanding of how well Magnus performed when he was under similar pressure.

  29. Finally I can say I play at the level of the world champion.

  30. Clearly Ding is a shadow of his past self. He should take a break & come back prepared or else he will be butchered in the defence of his WC Title as well

  31. ding is definitely nto a real world champion… for him to get matchfixed into that title shows corruption at some level.

  32. Not to be difficult, but….
    "You Shall Not Pass!" sure sounds like a Bridge game!

  33. In a parallel universe where 9LX is standard chess:

    1 – People are praising Wesley So, Ian Nepomniachtchi, Bobby Fischer & Anatoly Karpov. Agadmator & Levy are talking about Wesley & Nepo all day long.

    2 – Switch Bobby & Garry dates of birth. (Bobby's last name here is probably Nemenyi.) Meanwhile Garry Kasparov invented something strange called 'chess1' aka 'Kasparov Deterministic' where you have only 1 SP. Garry quits the 1975 classical WCC Vs Anatoly Karpov, is arrested in Russia (instead of Japan), immigrates to Iceland and dies in 2008. 1975 is not a big loss. In fact, it's better because Bobby Fischer takes over. 1978 is Bobby vs Anatoly match of the century in Baguio, the Philippines! Idk what happens in 1981, but then 1984 Eugene Torre wins the candidates and faces Anatoly/Bobby! In 1976, I guess Eugene still beats Anatoly. Either Anatoly or Bobby. (Trivia: In our world, Eugene almost beat Bobby in 1992.)

    3 – Bobby is still alive in 2024. Bobby, Anatoly, Sergey Karjakin, Wesley, Nepo are on Lex Fridman's podcast while Magnus, Garry & Hikaru aren't.

    4 – In the 2019 inaugural world Kasparov Deterministic chess championship (WKDCC), Magnus beats Wesley in 3 classical chess1 games in a row in but no one cares. Fabi is still the top 4 in the 2019 world chess1 championship but the top3 is now Liren. Nepo has never played a chess1 game, just as in our world Liren has never played a recorded 9LX game before 2024Feb.

    5 – Wesley/Nepo doesn't quit the 2023 classical WCC. Nepo/Wesley wins 2022 candidates and no one cares about Liren. Wesley So Vs Ian Nepomniachtchi is the biggest rivalry in chess, far exceeding as well as succeeding the next biggest rivalry Bobby Fischer vs Anatoly Karpov, like Better Call Saul to Breaking Bad. Wesley, & Nepo are both considered GOATs along with Bobby & Anatoly. There's no distinction between GOAT & MTOAT. There's a slight bias towards Wesley because Wesley is Bobby's nephew.

    6 – Chess' popularity in the Philippines & Norway are inverted.

    In our world, Bobby had radio interviews in the Philippines. In this world, Garry has radio interviews in Norway.

    Then Prospero Pichay Jr is imprisoned and the Philippine chess federation is free from corruption. But Wesley is still American. Huhuhu. Oh, in this reality, Magnus' parents are evil and then Magnus gets adopted by religious parents who are friends of Garry, so it's like Magnus is Garry's nephew. The 2019 WKDCC is still like a pseudo – Bobby vs Garry, and it's billed as battle of thei nephews.

    7 – But still no one actually really cares about chess1 because no one wants to have a headache over studying the same boring SP again and again. Also its top players Magnus & Garry are still cheaters. But well ok maybe in rapid & blitz chess1 is picking up. (Same as our world. Fiiiine Magnus is right about keeping regular chess for rapid & blitz.) So there's still a 2022 rapid world chess1 championship, half a century after the 1972 REGULAR match of the century. This time Hans Niemann wins beating Hikaru Nakamura on tiebreaks. This time Hikaru accuses Hans, but Hans still sues both Hikaru & Magnus. Ches***m is not sued and is just as good as lichess. Hans is still considered the next Bobby Fischer / Anatoly Karpov while Wesley & Nepo are still considered the current Bobby / Anatoly.

    8 – In 2024Feb, FIDE still cancel their 2024 WKDCC, but Wesley & Nepo host a rapid chess1 championship but don't invite Magnus & Liren. Hans isn't a cheater but has still has beef with St Louis Chess Club and so doesn't play that due to scheduling conflicts, but Magnus & Hans are still going to eventually defend the, resp, classical & rapid world chess1 championships.

    9 – In general, chess doesn't have that many cheaters, cheating incidents, baseless accusations, etc and has very little corruption, discrimination, treason, politics, etc. FIDE is hailed as 1 of the cleanest sports/gaming organisations. Chess is an olympic sport. Bobby/Anatoly are FIDE officials.

    10 – Tiebreaks are settled by armageddon w/ auction rather than lower time controls, so Sergey & Fabi still lose to Wesley/Nepo in resp 2016 & 2018. But no one calls for change of tiebreaks to rapid time controls. Lol. Also, pre-arranged draws are so rare.

    11 – Sergey isn't banned because Sergey only privately supports Putin because chess doesn't make people go insane unless they the players want to stick to 1 SP only, like Garry.

    12 – Actually here, Bobby has very neutral feminist enlightened political views and is a true patriotic Jew & American ( in politics in addition to still being such a patriot in chess ) while respectfully criticising both US & Israel along side condemning Osama bin Laden / Al-Qaeda & Ismail Haniyeh / Hamas. So Bobby is still against Iraq invasion.

    13 – Most importantly, no one cares about Garry, Magnus, Hikaru or Liren. Specifically, in this world, they care less about them as compared to Wesley, Nepo, Bobby & Anatoly in our world.

    14 – Paradise.

    Ok back to reality:

    PLEASE agad it's been 4 months! 2023 USCC – Atousa almost beat Carissa Yip, the eventual winner!

    Carissa was losing most of the game. Atousa just blundered in the end.

    It's Hikaru's (rapid WFRCC) WIFE vs Wesley's (classical WFRCC) GIRLFRIEND.







  34. 2nd: Hans Niemann = next Bobby Fischer

    – Wesley So = current Bobby Fischer

    – Bobby Fischer's ghost = old Bobby Fischer

    – Beth Harmon = Bobby Fischer in another universe

    Each of these 4 'is a prodigy, had a rather dark childhood and is American'.

    Speaking of Wesley So

    Hikaru's (the rapid WFRCC) wife almost beat Wesley So's (the classical WFRCC) girlfriend!

    2023 USCC – Indeed Carissa Yip won and thanked Wesley So as her secret second in the 2023 USCC closing ceremony speech.

    But in Carissa vs Atousa, Carissa was losing most of the game. Atousa just blundered in the end.

    move 54 for black is an 8-move equality puzzle

    it's so sharp

    [Variant "From Position"]

    [FEN "1Q5k/3r1rn1/p3N3/Pp1p2P1/1q2p3/1B2R2P/5P2/6K1 b"]

    1… Kh7 2. g6+ Kxg6 3. Rg3+ Kf6 4. Nxg7 Rxg7 5. Qf4+ Ke6 6. Qh6+ Kf5 7. Rxg7 Rxg7+ 8. Qxg7 Qxb3









  35. Ding probably got a bit out of practice after the WCC due to the exhaustion of it. He's got a pattern of really falling out of theory and then bouncing back in it tremendously so. He can be a strong IM one day & Ivanchuk the next.
