  • agamator's funny moments -

  • İt is rude tweet by nepo

  • Yes. It was worth it.

  • Nepo,with that pawn,it reminds me of the Dude from the big Lebowski with the carpet.

  • What a beautiful Botez gambit - escaped, but loses the game anyways lol

  • At the end. Couldn't white bring back the bishop between the white castle and king threatening the black castle. As you can see, very new to chess.. Sorry had to say a silly move. Lol

  • One mustn't dare continue watching the video without watching Monty pythons clip first 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Pathetic I'm just disappointed with Ian.

  • What's the defence called when White opens with E5 and Black responds with Knight to F6? I couldn't catch the name because it sounded like Agadmator had a mini-stroke

  • Beautiful moves Jeffery! GGs!

  • Many a player lost a game by grabbing the b pawn.

  • I'm not gonna even try lol


  • Welcome to Sherwood!

  • When he says, "it's a very short game", and you already know Nepo won.. *WRONG!!!*

  • Nepo underestimated Jeffery Moral of the story: ego kills skill

  • 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  • Omg Monty Payton is still a big thing in Croatia? I thought it was more of my generation than Agad's

  • you said you got a copyright strike for the brief Monty Python clip, and so this game cannot be shown in some (?) countries. The obvious solution is cut out the Monty Python clip, and let this very good game be shown in every country. It is sad that whoever made the copyright protest has so little tolerance, and you were even helping their movie.

  • So worth the copyright ding...Monty Python is always a good play!!

  • #suggestion Carlsen vs Xiong, Day 3. What a game, and what a comeback!

  • And it was in this position that Agad completely humiliated Ian all over SEnewss.

  • In the Thumbnail I thought Ian was Rahul Gandhi 😂😂😂😂😂, Massive Irony

  • Agadmator your my favorite youtuber in the world. I love all of your videos. Your a real one!

  • More games with jeffrey

  • Kinda disrespectful that nepo insinuates that Xiong is poor, or inferior... kinda belittling.

  • Chinese player outs of the league!!

  • 2:50

  • Now that's what I call a poisoned pawn


  • Hallo everryone!

  • Nepo deserved a Mr. Barnes head for that pawn grab "attack".

  • Brilliant game 🙂

  • 1:19 is b5 a good move? why not?

    • nvm, c6 is down a bishop

  • Should have put the astronomia coffin dance instead lmao

  • And it was in this position Agadmator received a copyright strike

  • Banned! Awesome...

  • Haha, poison as hell pawn.

  • This was a nice game

  • 2:50 totally worth it

  • Wow, Agad got a copyright strike for _that?_ That was not very cash money of you, SEnewss. 🙄👎

  • What would a morphy fan play in that position in the opening?

  • why is his name "Ian" in the pic?

  • 5:34 why not bishop c4

  • And this is why I like to castle early.

  • Leeroy Jenkins, anyone?

  • 5:39 White queen to a4 ? If black rook to b4, then white queen moves back -- perpetual.

  • A nice trap shown by the commentators at 1:22 is if Black tries 7...Nb4 to fork the King and Rook on c2, White has the Queen sac 8. Q:f7+, B:f7 9. B:f7 mate. But this no longer works after 7...Bg7 since Black now has an escape square on f8 if White tries this sac.

  • Queen 👑 b7 is a normal move for players like me, Knight b4 is a monster move...

  • Honestly i dont understand how nepo went for the pawn instead of development and his king is still in the middle of the board wide open. Thats why Morphy is the best player of all time

  • the same happened to me a few days ago. Taking that pawn is always risky

    • Yeah it's a useful trap to know about. Many people know about it from the white side of the London System but apparently it can happen for Black in the Alekhine. And it happened to me too the other day playing Scandinavian. Very useful to know

  • My friend used to say f6 is not to be played and b7 not to be taken...

  • nice

  • Nippon : chalange accepted

  • nepo does not seem likable...

  • Looks like a mini brilliancy!

  • Yikes for the copyright strike but well, what are you gonna do.

  • Fo this clip 2:48 Copyright strik 💔💔😭

  • Nepo grabs poisoned pawn and suddenly his queen and king running every where on board for anti venom.but unfortunately there is no Anti venom.

  • Thats why I dont want Nepo to win the candidates,

  • was that a "y'all" at 10:48 ?

  • Qb3 felt like Morphy's Opera game move, then Nepo blundered his Queen

  • Nepo always so cocky and so sure, this game should be a good eye opener

  • Yes!!!! Hahahahaha Oh brave sir Robin, sir Robin of Camelot

  • I mean what a Great Challenge. If you accept you lose instandly...

  • I feel sorry for copyrights cos some can't watch this in their country...

  • Why have you turned off downloading?

  • Nepo has a good sense of humor. 😂

  • Nepo of loxley!!!!

  • Imagine you summon Paul Morphy via the time machine and try to show him how far the chess has developed. You put on the current tournament with the strongest chess masters of the world participating, and then you see this game. Morphy would be, like “you guys really haven’t figured anything since 19th century, huh?”

  • Your pronouciation of "Xiong" is really really close, but it sounds like you're saying it as two syllables when it should only be one. A wonderful game, thanks for showing us

  • Chess is very easy game everything can happen lol

    • Chess is an easy game to play, but not so easy to be good at.

  • Absolute carnage. Incredible game.

  • I watch Agad for years and I still don’t know what is he sorry about...

  • My miniature [Event "SalmanHabibAzizi vs ElBarco95"] [Site ""] [Date "2020-09-17"] [White "SalmanHabibAzizi"] [Black "ElBarco95"] [Result "1-0"] [WhiteElo "935"] [BlackElo "865"] [TimeControl "lightning"] 1. d4 d5 2. Bf4 Bf5 3. e3 Nc6 4. Bd3 Bxd3 5. Qxd3 e6 6. c3 Bd6 7. Bg3 Bxg3 8. hxg3 Nf6 9. Nd2 O-O 10. g4 Nxg4 11. Qxh7# 1-0

  • Nepo slip

  • so many tactics in this game.

  • Some close friend should explain to this guy that what made “sorry about that” funny were the intempestive situations he had to be “sorry” for and not faking it during the beginning of each video.

  • In the final position, when (hypothetically) white moves Qe4, you allow a deadly Qd2+. Kf1. Qf2# instead of Qa5

    • The bishop on h6 would capture the Queen

  • Well the tweet finally revealed the joke in the tittle I was thinking I was daft there until the tweet reveal... glad Nepo has a sense of humor.

  • Sometimes I feel that agad do" sorry about that stuff " fully consciously,,so no sorry by mistake happened😏😏

  • Wow 😂😂

  • What’s the “sorry about that” for?

  • The _what_ defense? [ Edit - The Alekhine defense. I was thinking that's what he said but wasn't sure. ] I couldn't understand agad and never knew what that defense was called. I'll look it up in lichess and update for others in case later people are interested... unless someone beats me to answering.

  • Never would have thought such a great movie would show up in such a great SEnewss channel 😂

  • In this age of super computers, grandmasters are getting crushed in such a brutal manner. Such a Shame for the game like chess to have such GMs.

  • Note ~~ magnus is not a human he is engine in disguise .

  • Agad, It's been two years since I subscribe to you, since then I only have one question, why the aspect ratio doesn't fit to my phone and tv screen? #question

  • Hope we can see Sun Tzu's quote :P

  • In most of the videos after playing 1 or 2 moves agadmator arranges himself and says “SORRY ABOUT THAT” (0:36) DID YOU NOTICE

  • Is this being played online or live?

    • Online. St Louis Online Rapid and Blitz.

  • And he got a copyright claim(not strike)

  • Why not hari's games

  • Talk about a poisoned pawn. That's why the "Chess Principles" are always valid. In the opening, it's usually a bad idea to go on pawn-grabbing expeditions. First, develop your pieces, put your king safe, and THEN, go to grab material.

  • 0:00 Hello everyone 0:22 Let's get straight into it 0:34 Sorry about that 0:37 Very standard stuff 0:54 Very strong outpost 1:55 Completely new game 2:28 Position from the thumbnail 2:48 Excellent Monty Python clip 3:14 Completely lost 3:19 Give you a couple of seconds 3:31 Enjoy the show 6:18 Nice king walk 8:25 Chess is a crazy game, anything can happen 8:33 It was in this position 8:38 Nothing more to be done 9:14 So yeah 9:43 Excellent Nepo tweet

  • Everybody gangsta till agadmator forgets to say sorry about that at move one

  • no such thing as a free pawn...

  • O brave sir robin!

  • Fab reference, Nepo definitely made some unarming comments recently...

  • Omghoosh. Agad level became PREMIUM.. I need to unsubscribe this.. can't watch offline 😇😪😫👎👎
