  • “While it is interesting, it loses terribly.” Classic

  • The end of chess as we know it. Old School GMs are rolling on their graves 🤮

  • Happy birthday Agadmator 🎂🎂🎂🎂🎉

  • @ 12:09 R-f7(?)

  • "How are you so good at chess?" "Well, I can make my bishops do whatever the flying f*** I want. That helps."

  • My friends at the library will like that mate

  • Pogi ni alizura...

  • nothing is impossible with God Jesus The Holy Spirit forevermore, Jesus gives life everlasting believe and be saved in Jesus Name amen, He died on the cross and rose again by His blood our sins are forgiven and we can pass over from death to life in Jesus Name we pray amen for it is by declaring with you mouth Jesus is Lord and believing in you heart that God raised Him from the dead you are saved in Jesus Name we pray amen

  • Sorry about that 101k

  • So happy to see Alireza is improving so fast, last year in Tata Steel he could not beat any of the first 10 best ranks, this year he beats MVL and So, soon we will see a new champion :)

  • Having a especially tough day ahead of him when everybody is Champion is a hard claim :D

  • 9:23 Black is up a pawn, and White is not about to win one, so it is 4 v 5

  • Aronians middle game play reminds me a little bit it of Bent Larsen in this game the way he counters and opens things up to his advantage.

  • The new Chess Arrow Design is stupid. A great example of technology regressing rather than advancing.

  • "While it is interesting, it loses terribly." It was in this position that Agadmator accurately summed up my whole chess life 😂😭😂

  • @Agadmator great video as usual, but please change Levons picture, he looks terribly depressed😂😂

  • 0:00 Hello everyone 0:15 Without further ado 0:37 Sorry about that 1:00 Really weird arrows 1:59 Exploiting the space left behind 2:15 3:10 Strike in the centre 4:04 Double attack 4:35 Move from the thumbnail 5:33 12:34 Give you a couple of seconds 5:44 12:45 Enjoy the show 7:02 9:20 11:52 Captures captures 9:26 12:20 14:23 Completely winning 10:00 There's an attack here, there's an attack here, there's an attack here 10:34 Nice smothered checkmate 10:57 Super tricky idea 11:59 While it is interesting, it loses terribly 12:15 A lot of pressure 13:38 It was in this position 14:39 Standings 15:27 Most colourful grandmaster 15:39 So yeah

  • It will bring this bishop come alive -agadmator2020

  • #suggestion for the next april fools, everytine you say "without further ado" you follow with "ah that reminds me to say a bit about the players' background...."

  • How do you make such nice videos? I mean what software do you use to make a video and how do you do that

  • I actually expected: What are gonna do? 1:16

  • So we go c4.....aahh sorry abt datt

  • When I first started watching chess a year ago aronian was not playing(for obvious reasons) so I had no idea who he was and all. Now I feel like this is possibly the only guy who could in current strength challenge Magnus Carlson for the world championship. What a miss for the candidates tournament

    • *en DOT wikipedia DOT org/wiki/Levon_Aronian**#Personal_life*

  • Levon is one player whose play generally doesn't make any sense to me, along with Tal, Anand and Shak. I don't understand why that is so. I don't mean to say I understand everything other players do. But these guys feel more mysterious for someone like me ( around 1750). I wonder if I would have ever thought to play that f6 move in that position! I would have probably played Bxg7 even after thinking about f6.. 🤔

    • But then, as agadmator says " not everything has to make sense if it's fun" 😄😄😄

  • #Suggestion Can you show some games of SUSAN POLGAR

  • What are you doing with the arrows?

  • So vs. Carlsen video is no longer there... Deleted?

  • In this tournament all seniors are getting form and showing their skills on this only child Alireja

  • The same setup in fabiano and kasparove game

    • *Fabiano (Fabiano Caruana) *Kasparov (Garry Kasparov)

  • Hello, Can you add my team in your team battles plz Team name: gugrati-chokre

  • 10:21 the wooden shield

  • Hey agadmator. I've been leaving comments on a few of your other videos but here i'd like to leave a really big thank you. My dad (thank god for him) taught me chess at age 4, but due to a combination of really shitty circumstances and just being busy i lost interest for several years. I randomly stumbled on your video of Ivanchuk's immortal and I started to just binge your channel. You're relaxed, unpretentious, friendly, your commentary is insightful and enjoyable, I love your little catchphrases lol, and you've actually completely revived my interest in chess, as well as improved my playing style and skill with your videos. Thank you for bringing back a part of my life that I almost forgot was missing. Hope you're doing well. Gonna try and send a donation your way sometime. Made sure to subscribe. Take care.

  • The bishop goes here,here, here, here, and here

  • For some ineffable reason this was one of the more interesting games of recent. Agadmator's commentary has much to do with it. But also the Random Chess format makes it all the less "standard opening theory" that we slog through.

  • Well detailed, I've always admired the messages you put up on this channel mate. One thing I always tell a crypto hoarder is the fact that they aren’t being opportunistic enough, why would one wait to earn in bits(with the risk of a volatile market included) when one can earn big via trading crypto, it's no bragging though, but crypto trading has been my major source of cash flow for some months now. Renouned trading expert Allen Albert has been the back bone behind these successes, I ain't shy of admitting this, the success rate of his signals coupled with his friendly and professional guide has really been a huge boost reflected in my trading portfolio. For solely crypto currency related concerns, Allen Albert can be contacted on Watsap *(+447380356836)* and tellygram *(alberttrade)* . A window of opportunity to buy more crypto assets has been provided by the recent price decline, let’s make good use of it.

    • Don't you mean _WhatsApp_ and _Telegram_ (instead of Watsap and tellygram)? *en DOT wikipedia DOT org/wiki/WhatsApp* *en DOT wikipedia DOT org/wiki/Telegram_(software)* Actually, I think _Tellygram_ would be a better name (not practically occupying a common noun). *bits (with (space) *Renowned *I am not shy *backbone *(alberttrade). (no space) Multiple run-on sentences. A wall of text. *en DOT wiktionary DOT org/wiki/renowned**#Adjective* *en DOT wiktionary DOT org/wiki/backbone**#Noun* If I was a spam bot, I would ask my master to provide something that has at least been put through a spell checker.

  • What software does he use?

  • It's not fair levon started to talk loudly in levonian language

  • Google "Donald Trump" and you get 914,000,000 results. Google "agadmator" and you get 3,090,000 results. Ergo, Donald Trump is WAY more popular. But only in Bizarro World. And in Real World, agadmator videos... - use occasionally quirky arrows, but never Sharpies - never suggest your opponent will go away by April - avoid games featuring hydroxychloroquine, bleach, or sunlight - say there are fine people on BOTH sides, and it's almost certainly always true - often appeal to suburban housewives - leave you feeling like you really can enjoy the rest of your day - give you something fun to talk about at the bar and library, with only the slightest chance of starting a brawl - get all their votes (usually these 👍) through the internet instead of the post office - always give you the real news, unless it's April 1, then all bets are off - may identify some as occasional "losers", but they're never "suckers".

  • Great game 🙂

  • what exactly does he fix when he says "sorry about" truly asking

    • Originally it was the volume knob for the clacking sound that the pieces make, but somehow it has evolved into a long running joke. I am not sure how or why.

  • With flexible arrowing, those pesky knight moves just got a whole lot scarier. Oh yeah? How about... 3 squares up and 6 squares right? CHECKMATE!

  • Levon gets destroyed soo many times 😂🤣😂😂😂 , soo many immortals against levon , soo many sac wins against levon , he never learns tho lmao noob . even tho he won this somehow but even kids crushes him hahaa🤣😂

  • Life is meaningless like if you agree

  • I watch ph

  • Since Chess960 covers every possible chess combination while normal chess does not, you will see some incredibly rare mates as we saw with that amazing mate in 3.

  • More and more love to Levon

  • Following up on those Bishop arrows. I once played a match in which an opponents bishop did actually switch colours!

  • Why white queen didnt capture pawn on f6 at 6:16 because it comes with check as well

    • Because Rook on f8 is protecting that pawn.

  • Okay, Levon! Wow.

  • aaaahh. so levon knows the wooden shield!

  • If there is no good comment deserving your like, you can go for this one

  • Have you considered putting the live engine evaluation on the side? I personally would love it. I remember you mentioning before that there was a reason you don’t have it.

  • Levon: "Reza, you are the goldenboy of bullet... Let's keep it that way!"

  • 10:16 Levon with the wooden shield

  • I always like games in which Alireza loses.

    • @Peter Mortensen when he lost against Magnus, he got angry, threw his water bottle on the floor, and filed a complaint in which he lied that Magnus kept talking in his own language. He shows a bad character.

    • Why?

  • Alireza is a bad person, he deserves to lose

  • Hi Agadmator and fellow commentors! I'm pretty new to chess and have been watching your videos for some time now. I was wondering where i could find some video's, books or other sources to improve. I'm currently hovering around 700 rating without ever learning any specific (opening)theory. Could ayone please help me out? Thanks in advance ;)

  • 0:11 Not a long one, just right for a very enjoyable Sunday. THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID.

    • There isn't any need to shout. We have _italics_ on this platform. For instructions, see e.g.: _pmortensen DOT eu/world2/2020/03/22/bold-and-italics-in-youtube-comments/_ You can edit your comment.

  • Finally the overrated giri isn't invited to one of these lol

  • 😂🤣 I love how they made the crazy arrows crazier 😜

  • a few good things for the highlight video by agadmatorino

  • Hello everyone alireza firouzja future champion

  • I don't know about this game but Firouzja's main problem is losing winning positions.

  • Hope Levon wins the tournament.

  • Can anyone tell me about the Levon tragedy?

  • 10:17 Bishop Protec but He Also Attac kthxbai

  • I even half considered rook to ha1, but the was so little material around the king I dismissed it right away. Fantastic pattern!

  • ... Needs more Further Ado.

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 11In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Hebrews Chapter 1 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. Revelation Chapter 3 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 58-0609 - The Message To The Laodicean Church Rev. William Marrion Branham 60-1211e - The Laodicean Church Age Rev. William Marrion Branham Luke Chapter 24 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. 38And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? 39Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. 40And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet. 41And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? 42And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. 43And he took it, and did eat before them. 44And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. 45Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48And ye are witnesses of these things. 49And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. 50And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 52And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen. 277 And Jesus is coming again. That’s His Spirit. He’s so close to the earth, so close to coming, that He’s ready to receive you, if you’re ready to receive Him. Now raise up your hands and pray with me. 278 Lord God, let all the priests hold on to the altars. Let the people cry out. May the Pillar of Fire and the Pillar of Cloud move into the people today and sober them, Lord, to the realization of the Presence of the living and mighty God. Grant it, Lord. Receive them. I pray this prayer for each one of them, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 279 Fill each one with the Holy Ghost, who doesn’t have the Holy Ghost. Lord, may the revival of this campaign, this meeting, break right now into a great, powerful outpouring of the Holy Spirit. May the sick be healed, the blind see, the cripples walk. May the manifestation of the living God be brought into the presence of the people, as it has been this afternoon, and may the people receive it. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I ask it. 280 Raise your hands now and give Him praise, and receive what you asked for. 65-0124 - Birth Pains Rev. William Marrion Branham 17 And so now, in this, Jesus raised the… I want to know tonight before I start. How many in here really believe the Bible, Jesus Christ did raise from the dead, let’s see your hands, you believe it? All right. If He has risen from the dead, then He’s got to be the same yesterday, today, and forever, is that right? Then He’s got to be the same in principle, the same in power, and everything that He was, outside of a-of a-a corporal body, He is tonight. Don’t you believe that? And He came from God. He’s been here on earth. And He came from Spirit. He was with the Father before the foundation of the world. And He was the Logos that went out of God. 56-0225 - Jesus Christ The Same Yesterday, Today, And Forever Rev. William Marrion Branham 145 And then they have a sign there that they’re going back. What is it? The corporal body of the Lord Jesus Christ setting on the throne of God, and when we pass by that one…If we go today and He don’t come for a hundred years and I meet you there, I’ll say, “Someday we’re going back. See there? That body will rise from the throne again.” It will come back to the earth; and when He does, every spirit that’s borned again will come back to a corporal body, young men and women, and live forever in the Presence of God. 56-0401m - The Mighty Conqueror Rev. William Marrion Branham Now, Jesus cannot be here in a corporal body. Because when that body returns, the end time’s here. “As the lightning cometh from the east, even to the west; so shall be the coming of the Son of man. Every knee shall bow, every tongue shall confess.”He can’t be here in a corporal body, but He’s here in a spiritual body, in the form called the Holy Spirit. 56-0414 - Blind Bartimaeus Rev. William Marrion Branham 11 And then we got a memorial there as we pass by, like Israel had; setting there in the splendor of its beauty on the throne of God is the Lord Jesus Christ in a corporal body that was raised up from the dead as a memorial that someday we’re coming back to the homeland. One day He will rise from that throne, His Father’s throne. He’s not on His own throne; He’s on the Father’s throne. And He will come back, and His throne is to take the throne of David on earth. So when He returns back, gets up, and we… He raises; His robes drop around Him and comes back to the earth, I tell you, it’s going to be a marvelous time. You talk about people emotional and shouting, just wait till that time. Just think of it, that when we’re coming back. 56-0403 - Shepherd Of The Sheepfold Rev. William Marrion Branham

  • 10:35 U stupid mothercheckmate? Is it some kind of insult used by GM ? 🤔

  • What if white plays Rf7 instead of Rc7 at 12:10? Probably not winning, but is it a better move?

  • Aronian played the wooden shield 10:19. He has obviously been watching xQc.

  • Very pleased that I found the mate in 3!!! The second move was really tough to spot.

    • I'm even better, I can sometimes find the mate in 1.

  • Love seeing Lev win

  • 13:11 Its like Boden's mate but with a queen and bishop instead of bishop pair mate

  • I found the beautiful mating pattern, took a nice sip of my water, and enjoyed the rest of my excellent Sunday. Thanks Antonio for another great video

  • Excellent job by Agadmator 🎉🎉🎉🎉

  • Fantastic game this one 👍👍👍

  • The arrows are for if you want to maneuver the piece to a specific square

  • Levon: "we pay for the entire board, we use the entire board"

    • Ah those rich people..... just throwing money away...

  • It does feel good to see Levon make a comeback after his personal loss.

  • Can't we find a better picture of Levon? ....He looks like he lives in a cardboard box.

  • Damn, three loses of my favourites in agad's videos in a row :-(

  • You can make the arrow like that from like months ago lol

  • 9.24 Agad so concentrated he missed a pond..

  • 9:23 Count again

  • Gave watching chess 960 a try. Nope, not interested.

  • Tfw f6 is a good move

  • Glad to see Levon playing brilliant chess. I've seen most of his games but recently his games after what happened are just next level.

  • 1:12 Agad's Philosophy

  • Agadmator: Not a long one. 16 mins video. Yup that's short.

  • I feel so reliefed when he says 'Hello everyone'. Thank you agadmator I like your commentry your predictions and many more things about you sir! I learnt so many things about chess from you never stop making chess video. Stay safe stay blessed

    • *relieved *en DOT wiktionary DOT org/wiki/relieved**#Adjective* Can you also add the missing punctuation? You can edit your comment.

  • If #agadamator sub count is still running 1k daily it'll take 8 months to hit 1 million subscribers , so please like and sub his , I wishing you to hit 1 million subscribers in the end of 2020

  • In the stands why is Caruana rated 2771 when he's actually a 2800's player. Is it the chess 960 ranking??

    • If yes why is Wesley the world Champion not highest and not even in 2800's

  • Awesome analysis, my favourite chess channel by far

  • u dropped a quote of ur own that's deeper than all of the ones u showed us: "not everything has to make sense... if it's fun." couldnt agree more guru Agad

  • (0:49) it "professional" here: it's called a bug. lol. ;D

  • Chess is so sexy when Agadmator uploads

  • "Not everything has to make sense, if its fun" -Agadmator

    • "Since the new software update, when I turn the wheel in my Tesla to the left, on Tuesdays and Thursdays the car will turn left, while on other days it will turn right. Makes no sense, but it's fun."

  • I love watching John Green beating a Grease actor in a game of chess.
