  • idk what it is but bongcloud is so insanely funny

  • Jeffery Xiong destroyed by the bong

  • 10:09 Q h3 move missed by xiang. Isn't?

  • Tfw the Bongcloud has a 100% winrate in tournament at the highest level

  • "Or maybe he just wanted to show Jefferey who's boss"- sounds like the GMHikaru we know nad love

  • i need to hire the thumbnail creator

  • Agadmator acting like BongCloud isn't a legit opening...

  • And it was in this position that white hit the like button.

  • 😂😂😂🤣 Nakamura bulling Jeffery on public

  • hahaha

  • 3:05 "With the K on g1 it would be an interesting game." :D As if it less interesting this way hahaha

  • The king is on E2 lol

  • 2:00 what database has boncloud

  • therapist: hikaru rogan isn’t real, he can’t hurt you the thumbnail:

  • Not a fan o

  • what was even the point of the king move in the beginning ... it went back to its starting square XD this is funny.

  • when you watch content bout weed and you get reccomended this.... still, when u high u dont care what you watch and everything is great content

  • Nakamura need to do the Jerome Gambit next :)

  • He lost on time

  • Good for some attention. Everybody needs likes these days. but well played. He is somehwat of an expert in this variation.

  • The bongcloud is the absolute test of raw strength

  • I am a fan of GM hikaru not so much TwitchHikaru. He’s definitely changed with his twitch fame. A little silly TBH.

  • I think 1)e2-e4 e7-e5 2)Ke2 is actually called the Grob attack.

  • Why resign here? Rook to G2 Check, leads to all sorts of troubles for white and easy to make a mistake.

  • Thought the bong cloud was when the king and queen swap squares. Didn't realise just moving the king one square to e2 was the famous bong cloud. I'm not positve but I don't agree that that's the bong cloud.

  • Actually Hikaru said in one of his videos that he wouldn’t have wanted Jeffrey to play the bongcloud as well because he wanted to beat Jeffrey with the bongcloud so I kinda feel like he did somewhat do it to look like the man

  • Has there been any player playing the bongcloud OTB?😅😅

  • Magnus made that too now

  • Another mouse slip??

  • This looks like a blitz game

    • Plot twist: it was a blitz game

  • you only play an opening like that so you could say that you won with it, simply for the sake of the name.

  • 3:41 Man, drunk bishops truly are dangerous

  • I think Jeffrey was playing passively.

  • When are Grandmasters starting to punish people who play this opening in such tournaments? 🤔 People need to learn why the Kings Gambit is not popular in tournaments anymore. Who ever would attempt the Bongcloud against Magnus would get good discipline!

  • Did anyone notice the alekhine gun ?

  • 10:48 😂😂😂

  • Nakamura is such a troll

  • How about a tournament called 'Bongcloud Blitz'? You can play normal chess, but you get bonuspoints when you play and win with the bongcloud.

  • I don't fear the man who has practiced 10,000 openings. I fear the man who has practiced the bong cloud 10,000 times.

  • 10:00: Why not "... Qh3" ? White can smash through, sure, but how fast?

  • how does he say *bongcloud* without laughing?

  • A rockie mistake, this queen move. Hard to understand.

  • Alekhine gun...

  • letting hikaru take this bishop seems like a pretty damn stupid blunder for a GM

  • Moves are different in description pls change

  • 6:20 Where it all went wrong. Let's be honest. Nakamura knows he can't catch up to Wesley and Magnus in this tournament so he wouldn't really mind playing an exhibition match against a brilliant but less seasoned blitz player. Honestly, Xiong lost his nerve here and blundered.

  • agamator's funny moments -

  • I'm still with Magnus, wasn't the bong cloud swapping your queen and king in spots. When was the bong cloud switched to e4 e2

  • I would love working with the sudden and unexpected journey to the means for me though spring cheers and happy birthday gift to me that you are not made of wood for your kind consideration

  • do vladmir kramnik vs samay raina match

  • jisko hindi aata hai pls yeh vedio dekho chess ka

  • i don't see the point of this opening, is that disrespectful?

  • Garbage opening speedrun to 2900

  • Hahaha

  • hikaru moves in the next game. Е4, king e2,king d3, king c4, king b5, king a6.

  • It is as of move 3 we have a completely new game....maybe the first time Agad has said this.xD

  • RIP the shirt gambit. sacrificing shirtless-ness for rapid development didn’t work out. 😥

  • This is what happens when you enconter a fiunny opponent at chess .com

  • King to f2 is for people who are pussies and afraid to block their diagonal travelers.

  • Imagine losing to a guy playing a twitch meme opening called the Bong Cloud.

  • Jeffery beated himself. Sry Hik 😁


  • fun drinking game: watch this video and drink every time agadmator says "king on e2", honestly makes me laugh every time (and I'm watching for the second time)

  • Why is it called bongcloud

    • @james yeung so hikaru is high when he plays it 😂.. I guess not applicable on Hikaru

    • you only play it when you're high

  • Do this shit on game one of a final and win. Opponent mind completely destroyed, proceed to win all the other games

  • This is some of the dumbest chess of all time. How could xiong miss such utterly easy ways to win and why would hikaru play this trash? Just lost all respect for Hikaru.

  • Nakamura's pic in thumbnail was the funniest thing I saw 😂😂😆

  • this was embarrassing to watch!

  • “The Bong Cloud is on the board.” 😂😂😂

  • Alekhines gun!!!

  • Bao Game is more challenging than chess.

  • Joe Rogan Thumbnail, check it out

    • Chess by day, Joe Rogan Podcast by night, all day

  • actually not resign, but Hikaru won by timeout

  • pure disrespect lol

  • When Hikaru says on stream he'll play the bongos cloud after ranking it on stream and then beats a GM with it😂😂😂

  • “The bongcloud is on the board”

  • Hikaru proved that you can swag on someone in chess.

  • Well. he claimed that openings don't matter against GMs so better showing it no?

  • move 3 a completely new position in a GM match xD

  • It makes me so happy that you analyzed this game

  • LMAO the thumbnail

  • Something for the connoisseur

  • 9:55 wasn't an Alekhine's cannon?

  • Hikaru is such a boss

  • BongCloud is actually a legendary opening! It is very rare thing that people analyze it beforehand for the game so your opponent mist find moves over the board

  • 10/10 thumbnail

  • He should do bongcloud against Magnus

  • Hikaru legend.

  • If I play this opening vs. 1400, I'll lose!

  • Joemura

  • The opening that Magnus describes as the “bongcloud” is actually “the Fred”

  • Tal game plss agad

  • Why does he say sorry about that in everu video

  • Interesting, Xiong does not go for the Home by Phillip Phillips defense with 1... Qxe4!! refuting the bongcloud

  • XD

  • Now it is near about the fact that "The Leader leading from the front"

  • Bong cloud speedrun deleted scenes

  • Develop your king early, get a better view of the board, Bong Cloud opening, absolutely genius

  • They should make alpha zero do some bong cloud openings so we can really see the theory behind this opening.

  • Just one of those days when u get the winning move right 🙂🙃🙃
