  • This isn't chess. That's 2 of these silly 960 videos ive had to turn off straight away. Not happy Agad.

  • why is the board set up wrong


  • Bobby Fischer would be proud!

  • As usual, beautiful job !

  • Why does anyone play this bullshit

  • agamator's funny moments -

  • We are the World Champion, resistance is futile :)

  • Iam not play with human Chess i need somebody stronger like GOD

  • Wesley so stealing the show/ tour.... 1 shaving on break. 2. Playing w/ his cat. 3 lead after all rapids game 4. Shaving again; this time hiding it with his hand on before a game. 5. Co champ of the tour.... Just do those things above then you're a strong super gm

  • castling perfectly explained

  • Wesley so is just unstoppable in random chess without the usual structured position of a regular chess

  • @ 12:24 N-d3(?)

  • in 11:30 Why Magnus didn’t go throw with Nc1 to e2.. Defends the rock and attacks the queen at same time.

  • Finnally someone explain how castling works in chess 960

  • Do you have a video explaining what 9XL is?

  • What about Nc4 ? At last

  • I would like to see explanation how the castle would go the other way - to the king side, since the queen and bishop occupies those spots, but there is no space between rook and the king.

  • Agad: Fabiano played a horrible foolish blunder which instantly loses the game... Also Agad: Magnus played a very interesting move which happens to be a blunder and could lead to a loss. The bias is palpable to anyone paying attention...

    • Magnus is one of his fav.look at his magnus he always use that all the time..

  • Wesley So is really clever in this format. Good stuff.

  • Bishop takes c6 so early on was a huge decision, giving Wesley the Bishop pair From then on, Wesley played a great game to beat Magnus. Quote of the video 09:52 "Rg1 is interesting, but it loses the game!"

  • Wtf Wesley is ugly

  • I know Magnus is a big football fan, so I'd say if he we're a (football) manager he'd play a diamond formation!

  • I'll know I have arrived as a chess player, when agadmator pauses the video and I guess the killer move!! 😂😂

  • The problem with Re6 right away for Wesley is that it blocks the bishop on g8 and might allow white to play c5.

  • Very impressive

  • 0:00 Hello everyone 0:46 Without further ado 0:55 3:32 Bishop pair from hell 2:14 Castling rules 2:46 3:14 6:14 6:34 Captures captures 4:17 Nice prophylactic move 4:21 Improves the position of the king 4:56 Very sneaky idea 8:53 Very tricky idea 5:59 Who are we to question his rook plans? 6:17 If this breakthrough works then it's great, if it doesn't then it's very bad 7:03 7:44 7:53 8:03 10:56 11:02 11:18 11:23 Double attack 9:59 10:05 Give you a couple of seconds 10:27 11:23 agadmator rap 10:59 Nasty discoveries 11:04 Incredibly difficult to defend, and when I say incredibly difficult I mean impossible 11:24 Completely lost 12:19 Completely winning 12:24 (It was in this position) 12:28 Nothing more to be done 13:12 So yeah 13:40 Nice photo

  • There is NO PIECE that can defend C4 pawn ------- Agad 2020

  • What kind of chess is this? Please reply

    • Chess960 or Fischer Random Chess

  • Interesting thought, if chess 960 eliminates everyone's encyclopedic memorization of the opening and is purely skill then isn't Wesley really more talented than Magnus or anyone else?

    • Maybe, but talent isn't how you determine a champion.

  • ...which is incredibly interesting but also loses the game :D

  • Why didn't you consider knight C1 to d3??????

  • Haha Kasparov and So are completely schooling Magnus in REAL chess, not theory knowledge. CLEARLY Wesley So’s smarter at this

  • Imagine if carlsen and wesley is actually saying all of those words

  • Does chess 960 change chess format every game?

  • Robert Hubner understood chess very well

  • Really clever title. You just couldn't tell which champion

  • Is it necessary that in Chess 960 one rook should be in left and other should be in right of king???

  • Chess960 is a nice name for this format but it think it would be nice to call it fischerrandom to honor the 11th world champion for it.😁

  • Woo-hoo! Got queen to d4

  • "Magnus found rook to g1 which is incredibly interesting, BUT ALSO LOSES THE GAME"

  • So, So won.

  • Which is incredibly interesting but also looses the game -agadmator

  • go wesley,your kababayan here is so proud of you,nice agad,more power to your channel

  • I predict that if the dog lives 3 more years, he will learn to say "Captures-captures."

  • For white, the left side is NOT the queen side.

  • Why not other knight attacks black queen and defend check mate

  • I souls like to see Rose James queremos

  • Anybody can be beat on any given day! How do you know you are the best? You haven't played me!

  • Great job Wesley 😀 Exposing fraud and overrated Magnus

  • Thank you agadmator for not mentioning any other results

  • 2:55 why didn't he captured with the bishop ? A7

  • 'When I say incredibly difficult, I mean impossible' ~ Agadmator 2020

  • when i saw the title i was like, okay, so mangus must win. but then agad tells me wesley is ALSO a wc, so i was like "okay u got me agadmator"

  • Meanwhile, Medo sleept during the whole match on a 360 position, or should we write 3LX

  • Maybe Re7 instead of a Re6 was a mouse slip.

  • Hello. At 13.52 when Agadmator says there is not much for white to do, why not white knight to D3??? This is just before Magnus resigned and it seems more resilient.

  • "Rook to G1 is interesting, but also lose the game" This guy here......

  • Can anyone provide me to the first video of agadmator please?

  • i hope there is a youtube video compilation of magnus carlsen reactions in losing position


  • In the analysis at 11:58, ...Qb5 doesn't look good since Black has to control the a1-h8 diagonal with his Queen. Now after ...Qb5, White has Rg7+ and after ...Ka6, White holds with Ka1. So Black's actual move ...Bf7 was best. And the final position still has a bit of poison in it. If Black takes the knight ...R:at, then White has the tricky Rg7 which looks to win the Bishop on f7 But Black now has the devastating ...N:a3+ which wins White's Queen no matter what the response.

  • Why are you not sorry about that?

  • The bishop arrows at the very beginning are wrong placed

  • Wesley so has a chess 960 championship and a million dollar smile.

  • Wesley So is a beast.

  • So in the starting position it's possible to castle on move 1? That's pretty interesting

  • Kc.d3 was gonna do what?

  • "Those who say they undrestand chess, they undrestand nothing" Bobby Fischer : hmm I dont think so

  • 9:50 someone once said, "if you don't find the winning move make sure your doesn't find it either"

  • 11:04 Agad: "Incredibly difficault to defend, and when I say incredibly difficault, I mean impossible"

  • *Go GM Wesley So we Support You Proud kme sayo idol👏👊💪🇵🇭🔥*

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

  • Nice win by Wesley.

  • Can you please stop explaining how to castle in every video? It gets annoying AGAD !

  • Who pays for bots to come down-vote Agad's chess videos?

  • Great title, you tricky Mr. Mator!

  • #suggestion Castling in 960: Consider calling "Castle fg" and "Castle cd" - it should be better understandable than "Kingside" & Queenside". It's rather often not the side of where the Queen is located, and: it's somehow always kingside. Totally appreciate you endorsing 960 now!

    • Another idea is to say either "castling "home" for h-side or "away" for a-side from the series "Home and Away" :-)

  • Where to see the standings

  • In the chess 960 format, Wesley So has become Magnus Carlsen's kryptonite because Magnus seems to lose his super powers of chess when he is playing against Wesley.

  • Hello everyone , without further ado, quite the game, bishop pair from hell, captures captures captures, very nice idea, nothing more to do, so yeah, nice photo, so yeah.

  • The player who could bring this types of wild positions to regular chess while retaining flexibility will probably be who will dethrone Carlsen

  • Wesley would be fucked bt magnus if they play normal chess

  • Title is bit revealing

  • Hey agad! Just wanted to remind you that this is not in the "chess daily videos playlist". I have a pinned tab to that and sometimes you (temporarily) forget to put them in there. Thanks so much for the content as always!

  • 0:59 - "Bishop pair from hell will be fully operational" Yeah... well, they can even switch their color, true devils they are!

  • 11:22 The double attack on this knight, this is completely lost for white. A rhyme for Agatmatorinos compilation XD.

  • Never underestimate the Bishop Pair From Hell!

  • Strongest Chess960 player?

  • What a game. Go, Wesley!!!

  • 9:52 Reg1 which is incredibly interesting but also loses the game..🤔🙄

  • It’s said that Carlson will be thinking about So’s monster knight for years to come 😁

  • Your title is misleading 🤣🤣...i thought magnus won

    • Wesley So defeated Magnus in the last round 13.5 - 2.5 to become the 1st World Champion of Fide World Fischer Random Chess Championship 2019

    • Wesley So is the 1st Official World Champion of Chess 960 also known as Fischer Random.This Match is the same format of Chess 960

  • I just watched 2 ads for you without skipping agadmator :D

  • This remember me the round four of the 1972 world chess championship

  • completely wrong and weird bishop pair arrows

  • What a poor c3 pwan

  • I really like that you upload a lot of videos a day. It relieves me of my habitual boredom with your interesting videos and the more the better. So after hundreds of videos I've seen and will continue to watch I want to say thank you. So thank you so much AGADMATOR.

  • Great! Thx!

  • why i'am reading "That's Why I'm World Champion" with bitch in the end
