  • You're the best, Agadmator.

  • That's a very sweet way of playing the gambit :D Nice knight noob!! XD

  • 3:00 Fabi is not up a pawn agad..... Nevertheless, Loved it....

  • 10:50 would queen to D7 be a good move?

    • Good move for black, I mean

  • Even better than passed pawn is to have you back :D

  • So many not thats in this game😂

  • Agad gonna blame everything on anesthesia for years to come. Sorry 'bout that.

  • #suggestion the most calculated game in norwaychess2020 Aronian, Levon - Caruana, Fabiano round 6

  • Congrats alireza

  • Very Exciting Game

  • 3:02 fabi is not a pawn up

  • Wow!!

  • 18:10 calls it an idea lol

  • It’s hard to believe Tari played g3? when black had already played Rg8. Talk about walking into the line of fire!

  • #suggestion Magnus Carlsen vs Daniil Dubov, Chessable Masters 2020, Round 4, RAPID. Link to the game: Please like this so agadmator will see! :)

  • Why wouldn't Fabi rather play against a knight instead of a bishop. The bishop was able to control enough of the board for Alireza ftw.

  • garbage

  • 18:30 I thought Firouzja was playing under the French flag these days?

  • I think the opening was nice. I would have opened with a RT-2PM2 Topol-M cold launched three stage solid propellant silo based intercontinental ballistic missile

  • This was a pretty good game from young Alireza.

  • 17:45 well, I’d play bishop to g3 with check collecting the rook, but it’s nonetheless a won position

    • @Myself oh, true, thanks! 👍🏻 :)

    • Unfortunately Bg3 is illegal since the bishop is pinned

  • Screech just doesn’t age...

  • Pawn :- I'm dying on the next move.. Agadmator :- passed pawns must be pushed!

  • I see alireza i watch

  • This game brought to you by Salt n Pepa

    • @Hatef you're right. My bad.

  • Yup, i was watching other chess channels while Agadmator was out, they didn't satisfy. Antonio deservers to be the top chess channel. So smooth ,clear, and fun.

  • Hey Antonio! I am wondering whether you will show Anand's 2006 Sicilian game against Karjakin? It's one game I've been dying to see you do! :)

  • Am I the only one who noticed a difference in voice?

  • Fast pawns are passed And passed pawns are fast How fast are the passed pawns That passed very fast

  • a truly great victory for Alereza Firouzja, who now joins the Legendary players as another Legendary player. Amazing, he is only 17 years old. Wow! My resoect.

  • 15:25 The old "drill bit" gambit.

  • Which country's flag is displayed for Alireza in the standings?

  • I like when the players keep playing and not regsining

  • Unknown: passed pawns must be pushed . . Me: Dibs😜🤪🤪🤪

  • dang we missed your good commentary. keep it up.

  • Hello everyone is back to normal

  • why couldnt the black queen take the rook on b5 at any point around 7:26??

  • Nice and handsome firouza

  • Beautiful game!!

  • #suggestion Peter K Wells vs Yoshiharu Habu, Essent Open 2005. This game was also featured in the anime No Game No Life Episode 1, it's actually a very complicated and nice attacking game.

  • 16:32 Agadmator.exe has stopped!

  • That's a great picture of Fabi

  • Reza's on fire. Such A force!

  • #quote "Blame the Anesthesia!" -agadmator

  • Always thought you were saying “fast pawns” 😂

  • This whole time I thought it was FAST pawns

  • Too bad Nakamura wasn't in this games .

  • You're great Antonio

  • Caruana in this picture looks like Kevin Mcdonald from kids in the hall.

  • Now I know why I’m rated 1200. I always accept The gambit and proceed to protect the pawn. My parents did me a deservice I guess 😂

  • Firouzja was so close to win that tournament, and Carlsen had just good luck

  • 15:20 sounded like there was an aerial attack occurring there lmaoooooooo

  • Welcome back Agadmator

  • Agadmator: Passed pawns must be pushed. Eric Rosen: pawn pawn pawn pawn pawn pawn pawn pawn pawn pawn pawn pawn...

  • Push em baby!

  • That noise at the door, that was uncle Vernon permanently closing the hole on the door. "Fine day, Sunday. In my opinion, best day of the week. [...] No mailman on Sunday. Ha!"

  • Great game 🙂

  • #suggestion Bobby Fischer vs Bob Hope (how would it finish?)

  • After like three or four months, I just realized Agadmator was saying Duda’s whole name every time and not “young Krzysztof Duda”

  • That was an excellent game! Thannks! :)

  • "Make traps in preparation. Find winning moves over the board."

  • Antonio!! good to see you what do you have on your neck?

  • 15:25 For all of those who missed "sorry about that"

  • Wow, what a strange game. I've never seen a game where both sides thematically pushed multiple pawns early in the game simultaneously. Not for me, requires too much calculation and foresight. In my endless struggle with Stockfish level 5 on Lichess, I try to put pawns on opposite sides of the board in position to become passed and then I force tradedown till nearly all the pieces are gone. Since adopting this strategy I've gone from one win in a hundred plays to 50/50. It seems Lichess's Stockfish is oblivious to passed pawns until the 7th rank, and only worries about them when it's too late. So it ignores them and tries to check my king and gobble up undefended pieces, until too late it realizes the error of its ways. It's fortunate for me that Stockfish has no memory of its defeats!

  • What's that flag for Alireza?! I thought he is Iranian

  • 12:45 White could have still played rook to B7 right? Isn't that the best move?

    • Engine currently at a depth of 46, and it says RB7 is +2.6. It seems to not matter all that much though, because you go into a similar endgame where you are up a bishop.

    • I've been looking through the comments to find an answer to this. It seems like you could just play it anyway, because if you reply by taking the knight, you queen... Gonna load it into an engine and figure out what's up.

  • Good to know that your dog picked up carpentry as a hobby during the pandemic.

  • #suggestion Ivanchuk vs. Kasparov 1994 Euwe Memorial tournament

  • I found the move!!! First time ever :-D ...although I didn't find the follow-up, I'd've pushed c3

  • When Adam and Eve had their children in Eden…Now watch, that’s the question: When they had their children in Eden, was there other people on earth at this time? No! Then in Genesis 5:16, you see, Cain dwelt in the land of Nod and knew his wife. Sure. See? 601 That’s Genesis 1, where He created man in His Own image, which was in the theophany. And in Genesis 2, He made man out of the dust of the earth, which was the human man that we have now. And then, in 3 was the fall, and was kicked from the garden of Eden; and then the children begat children. And Cain took his wife and lived with her in the land of Nod, outside, because God had separated him from the fellowship with his own brother (because of the death of-of Abel). And that’s who he had, his own sister, and married her; is the only way that I can, myself, can see how that-that he married. 57-1006 - Questions And Answers On Hebrews #3 Rev. William Marrion Branham 54 Now there is where I think that a-a botanist, or-or science and Christianity, does not conflict one with another. Because, science says, the man came from different life; and we say, when you look at a man here, he’s in the image of God. This is, was not the image of God, to begin with. This is the image of animal life. And he…And evolutionists argues that we…I don’t believe in the chain of evolution the way they do, all coming from the single cell. But I believe we evolute, certainly, the evolution one man from another. But then when God made all of that, and got…put the man in the… 55 Made him out of the dust of the earth, now, not in His Own image. He had already made the man. Then He breathed into him the breath of life, and he became a living soul. So, the soul of man is the nature of the spirit.56 Now, when you are re-born, you don’t get a new spirit. You get a new nature of that spirit. It’s the same spirit, but a new nature of it. You take two man, stand them together, both look alike; and one of them is a sinner, and one of them is a Christian. One man say, “I got a spirit the same as you have,” see. But one of them is a different, his soul. His nature is different. He has been changed.57 So then He breathed into this man. Now, I don’t know how, how He made him. He-He put him in five senses so he could contact his earthly home, and see, taste, feel, smell, and hear. And He made him in that manner. Now, those senses was not to contact God. 58 His sense to contact God was his spirit, his soul was to con-… “The soul that sinneth, the soul shall die.” 59 Now, I’m going a long ways around, to get something, but I hope you get every point of it so you can see exactly what God had to do at Calvary. 60 Now when this man, then, when He put him in his senses, his five senses. And then, the man, he was lonesome, so He made him a wife, a helpmate, taken from his side a rib and made a woman. 61 A beautiful type there, all in type, of God taking from the side of Christ, the Bride. See? God opened up Adam’s side, taken a rib; which, a man has one less rib than a woman, in the structure of the-the body. And now God opened up the side of Christ, in the…at Calvary, and taken out the Bride. The Church comes through the Blood of Christ, into the Body of Christ. 62 That’s how-how we come in, and through no other way. No matter how church you belong to, how good a man you are, how good a woman you are; you must accept God’s all-sufficient Sacrifice, His provided way, or you’re lost. That’s right. That’s the only way that you can come in, is through There. Now, there is only one way, and that’s the Door. 63 Jesus taught that famous parable, when He was here on earth. He said the wedding supper was made and-and every man was given a-a garment, and he found one man there without a garment. He said, “Friend, what are you…How-how comes you haven’t got a garment?” 64 Now, the oriental custom of that, when the bridegroom invited every person, he put…he invited. If he invited fifty people, then he had fifty robes. And he stood somewhere at the door, and every time a man come in, rich or poor, he put the robe on him. Then, no one knew whether they was rich or poor. He, all, looked the same, under a robe. 65 And that’s the way God does today. He gives the Holy Spirit; which is a type. Every man that He invites, we’re all the same. Not this one ’cause a little better than the other one, and that one a little higher than this one. We’re all the same in the sight of God, everyone that’s invited to the Wedding Supper. 53-0403 - The Cruelty Of Sin, And The Penalty That It Cost To Rid Sin From Our Lives Rev. William Marrion Branham

  • Past pawns must be punished 😜😜

  • I know ali reza is quite strong in speed chess but did not expect him to do well in classical chess also , being second ahead of caruana and levon at 17 yo that is insane can’t wait t until he become the new world champion probably he is the one who will end magnus era
