  • The friendly patio feasibly support because stinger independently manage anenst a same polyester. pointless, hurt wholesaler

  • Now i know why the Soviets where so succesful

  • Get on with the game and less talk

  • “Rook g7 check” of course

  • New to the channel, what's the Morphy Saga?

  • "He does look like he juste came back from his hotel room" ahahah

  • Two remarks: most minibars dont contain huge amounts of alcohol, and second: alcohol is so expensive in Norway, is he crazy???

  • So, is this called the Vodka Attack?

  • File this in the psychology of chess.

  • What if white played Queen to A6?

  • 100% of the times you say "pause the video" I rarely if ever see it. This one I was able to see not only the move but the next 7~8 moves that would unfold from it. I think I suck a little less at chess every day.

  • 2:16 Damn... who is this drunkard??

  • only One God our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ He alone is God He alone saves all

  • 13:20 Agadmator: And if you trade all ( the Rooks... pardon... :) ) all the pieces! There is no defence against (the 5-th) Rook G7 Whatever you play ... just Rook G7 check! .. and black just need to give up the Quinn for a Bishoooop! Yeeeeeeh ! I regained my sight;

  • Man you need to update your player pictures

  • I played A4 all the time in highschool it pissed everyone off to no end.

  • I am 26 and recently play chess during lockdown my current blitz rating on is 1300 any tips for me to be good on chess I love playing white pieces

  • Certain magician xDD

  • After Bb5 black should play A6 ?

  • Great video! Thank you for describing the reasons behind the moves so well!

  • Teimour Radjabov

  • Nice, I found the move for a change. Felt this one was kind of easy though, nothing else made any sense really

  • I got the Kasparov Masterclass ad on this one!

  • I went and played Bridge. I was nearly drunk!! Had my limit of wine, 2 glasses. Had no intention of playing but they needed me. So I went and won. So miracles do happen.

  • Magnus wins when he drinks, I win when I smoke weed.

  • Sometimes the enemy is yourself and alcohol allows you to defeat it.

  • Magnus Reminded me of the movie, ‘Dumb and Dumber’ 😂

  • DrDrunkenStein Origins

  • In other words always play a4

  • 2:30

  • 13:29 you say rook to g7.. it's a bishop! Not a rook.

  • 11:25 fuck yeah, i chose that :D

  • i think he was in the mood to demonstrate that he can win giving away the first move...

  • hello.. views i just want to tell you all about this great loved restorer i feel so much happy now how much can i thank Dr.Osusu but to tell the world about his great work in my life.some months ago I and my girlfriend broke up and she left me heartbroken, this made me sick and my problem became very very difficult and it made me almost gave up but after the love spell from Dr.Osusu, who i came across online my relationship was restored instantly, I was happy that the outcome was fantastic, only 3 days after [dr.osusu] started it all. Never in my life have I thought this would work so fast. My woman reconcile with me and he started acting completely different, we make love everyday. Now I can say that Dr.Osusu Love spells work! I can now say I feel happy once again, and like never before. It felt so good to have my lover back again, Thanks to Dr.Osusu you can reach him here [DR.OSUSU drosususolution@GMAIL.COM]... for relationship help or call +2349045034505/whats-app……he is a very powerful relationship restorer .......

  • what about Queen to B5 for white at minute 11.20?

  • John frusciante is that you?

  • please #suggestion the game of fischer and keres in 59. all bests form Amazonia, Brazil

  • But, you know, that’s only if you enjoy such things.

  • Magnus: a4 Me: Resign

  • Drunken Master

  • There is no defence against the Bishop transmogrifying into a Rook on G7. Agadmator, I love you, man.

  • I went rook to g5.

  • Magnos drink .. beth drinks and use drugs 🤣 icons are just fantastic

  • Rook G7? 😅 bishop G7?

  • I'm wondering 🤔 if Magnus thinks the same... I'm beginning to feel like a chess God, chess God All my minor pieces from the back to the front spot, front spot Now who thinks the queens on the board are gonna get off, get off They say I play like a robot but don't call me chess bot, chess bot But for me to play like a computer must be in my genes I got a chess rap in my back pocket My rook will go off when you think not Got a world title from this hot Game and since made a good living of it Ever since Vishy Anand was in his forty's With a 6.5 and the king of his I'm a GM still honest But I don't wanna be rude on this, Chessoholic (capture'em all with)

  • I think Bishop takes G5 instead of H4 is the best move.

  • 12:55 the worst bishop in history

  • 13:27 "there's no defense against rook (???) to d7" 13:35 "whatever you play, any move you play, just rook (???) g7 check..." Has agadmator's been drinking too??? Nice video though, as always!

  • My play is so bad that I’m actually better drunk

  • If it was calculated it's a nightmare. I love the bishop/knight trade on c4. That made the magic happen and after that the bishop was not trapped. He could simply take a pawn Bxg5. But boiling him in ""desperate"" h4 is beautiful :-). Just wow

  • So opening pawn move to A4 is the Smirnoff is it??🤣🤣

  • you cant tell how the game with played with the 1000 hypotheticals thrown between every move.

    • I, along with millions of people, can understand the game very clearly, even with the hundred sidelines it shows

  • just wanted to watch the game not 20 variations of every move that was possible in it.

  • 11:10 and what if Rf5 ?

  • Me and the boys playing that stupid opening where you move the TOWERS in the first 2 moves

  • hikaru said you wouldnt be able to drink like beth harmon did irl and play chess at same level, guess this proves him wrong lol

  • Nice haircut magnus

  • Magnus is modern equivalent of Mikhail Tal

  • 칼슨이 개 잘하네

  • Magnus just played a.really interesting game vs brazilian GM Luis Paulo Supi. I'd love to see your analysis of that game.

  • Magnus : The Drunken Chess Warrior

  • Love you channel! I never got super serious with chess but love the game. Your break downs are amazing and make me feel like im way better than i am. Thanks for the hours of fun!

  • "and it does look like he just came back from his hotel room (after slamming a bottle of vodka)". LMAO!!!

  • magnus took doping. 2 year ban!!! lol

  • I finally was able to guess the winning move and continuation.. I must be getting better

  • I also experienced that after a certain (not too much) amount of alcohol I play better

  • Agadmator, I am Norwegian and listened to the Pod today, and it is all true ;-)

  • Magnus playing sober is actually a handicapped game for him. It evens the odds to play a fair game with humans.

  • Just Rook G7 check, seems easy right?

  • bg7 not rg7, it looks like this is a minibar comment.

  • Walter Hagen won golf championships hung over with no sleep & still in a tuxedo. Magnus is that kind of man.

  • Why not move rook to D1(at the moment when you asked the viewers to pause the video) to put a tempo at black’s bishop and the in the next move Rxd6 since the black rook on f6 is hanging even if opponent retakes the rook we can capture his rook on f6 with queen.

  • Agadmator is so good at chess he can promote bishops into rooks.

  • Just beautiful. It's like being tied up in bondage but still in control. lol

  • nice 2:30 intro

  • The real reason Magnus came to was to check my gameplays, this is totally 100% stolen from me. God damn Magnus

  • I checked again, but sadly I am not Magnus Carlsen.

  • Sir, U talking unusual things just explain what u present. Briefing 12 seconds enough but u start like a history professor, that's enough for me i am going to unsubscribe.......

  • Preston Ware lends his name to the Stone-Ware variation of the Evans Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4. b4 Bxb4 5. c3 Bd6)

  • Magnus being very strong in drunken fist chess😂😂😂❤

  • Magnus Carlsen is the Rock Lee of chess

  • Agad : Welcome back to the good stuff ME : YES YES

  • Is A5 at 5:59 good ? It s seems that Black is force to play d5 to free his bishop giving white the e5 pawn. Isn't this good?

  • As the wise XQC once said LOOK ITS THE WINDSHIELD ITS THE WINDSHIELD LOOK Referring at rajabov's bishop :)

  • A complete newbie here: at 11:13 I thought of capturing with the rook on f1 , the pawn on f6. how bad is this idea from 10 to why are you even watching this video?

    • @Alfie Tyrrell thanks bud!

    • Not the best move they would recapture either the queen most probably which would threaten the bishop(as long as you defend the f7 rook from the queen) and threaten all sorts of back rank issues with check where you could pick up the other took. Otherwise you could capture with the f7 rook and just be up a whole ruck and you will win the bishop later.

  • I would really love to know exactly how much vodka he downed in 15 mins

  • Hvem er her fra Morten ramms insta story?

  • Det er noe med da

  • I call that opening the limping pawn

  • wow Teymur, what a bad bishop! Boo Booo.

  • what about queen a6, then rook can't move down because it would be checkmate

  • Starts at 2:32

  • #suggestion karpov vs. kasparov 1985

  • I need a "but.. ok" tee-shirt!

  • Agadmator fart @13:38. Thank me latter 😝

  • "As much as you can drink in 15 minutes." Gotta assume he's not one of those idiots that can chug a bottle in less than a minute or he'd have been in hospital, not playing chess. Yeah, not a good measure, could be anywhere from a shot to a handle depending on his stomach and ability to ingest strong liquor, I'd struggle to drink much more than a double straight without retching and would be lucky to manage 2, diluted in a soft drink? Probably a substantial amount if I really wanted!

  • Was chess worth your life?

  • No new video on Mikhail Tal's birthday???? Strange😑

  • Dr dronkenstein returns

  • #suggestion Paul Morphy vs Jules Arnous de Riviere [Event "It"] [Site "Paris (France)"] [Date "1863.??.??"] [Round "?"] [White "Jules Arnous de Riviere"] [Black "Paul Morphy"] [Result "0-1"] 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Ng5 d5 5. exd5 Na5 6. d3 h6 7. Nf3 e4 8. Qe2 Nxc4 9. dxc4 Bc5 10. h3 O-O 11. Nh2 Nh7 12. Nd2 f5 13. Nb3 Bd6 14. O-O Bxh2+ 15. Kxh2 f4 16. Qxe4 Ng5 17. Qd4 Nf3+ 18. gxf3 Qh4 19. Rh1 Bxh3 20. Bd2 Rf6 0-1 PS- I did not understand this. This game consists of a "brilliant" move
