  • Anand was so devious over here.. the light square bishop was the first to go.. instead he used it as a bait and wiped out every other piece whilst threatening mate in 4.. LoL

  • The longevity of this man will go down as legend in chess history. Single handedly inspiring millions of his country to pick up this game . ❤️🙌🏻

  • Chess Ranking by year 1970-2020

  • Great Chess Players Standings From 1970-2020

  • why didn't anand play rook to g3 when he could?

  • Hard for me to imagine ever being smart enough to not take an opportunity to capture a rook with a knight. Or surrender a queen.

  • beatiful game to watch

  • Wow. That was entertaining.

  • 1 like for Bishop Musk.

  • Nice attack. I wish that a line starting with Rxf7 was analyzed at 9:00 minute. Still, a good work & video.

  • This channel is therapeutic....its like watching Bob Ross paint

  • If you're gonna use Mikhail Tal as a verb form, Vishy Anand is Mikhail Talling.

  • At 11:17, after Bishop g6 by white, what if Knight x Rook at E3?

  • That bishop is the embodiment of 'just end my suffering'

  • Excellent game!

  • In any match, there are few critical moments where there's no second best decision. The rest of the moves are intuitive. ~ Viswanathan Anand

  • Y the hell you have kept subtitle can't see half chess board

  • Beautiful game!

  • 5:10 puzzle, why is ‘rook to e5’ so ignored?

  • Even lautier's king died in saving the bishop....

  • When a MOVING KING captures while the SLEEPING QUEEN is idle

  • After Queen captures on C3 (7:46) , you mentioned you have to move the rook to B1, but why not Bishop to D2, attacking the Queen and defending rook with the Queen?

  • Agadmator’s “Capture” “Captures” “Capturing” “Captured” counter: 89 +-2 captures

  • In every Anand's gane there is one bishop chilling at corner and threatening checkmate

  • That light-squared bishop was held to ransom by Anand. "You want your bishop or king, make your choice."

  • The longevity of this man will go down as legend in chess history. Single handedly inspiring millions of his country to pick up this game . ❤️🙌🏻

  • Doesn't matter which you love more, respect both. Both Monsters

  • Simply superb. This game is better than Bobby's century game.

  • Greatest Chess Players Ranking

  • What a game. Two of the best find the moves ever seen

  • At 13:39, black could block white's rook with his knight long enough to save his rook. This still loses black's central pawn pair though.

  • Got to admit lautier played the scandinavian well, its a hard opening.

  • How on earth does this have even one down vote. Awesome analysis. Thankyou.

  • Absolute crazy game ever saw

  • ანანდი მხეცია

  • At 10:01, why not Q to h2?

    • Bishop to F4 wud follow. You remove Queen from the defense it wud not be good

  • Even tal couldn’t have done this level of devastation. He had an answer for every move

  • Thanks to Agadmator for this great game!

  • Could not guess even a single move. Glad didn’t pick chess as a career option.

  • Excellent Game, excellent analysis.

  • I sure need to rewatch this another 6 times. An absolute classic.

  • Wasn’t re5 a better move? To pin the queen.

  • Bg6!! is indeed a beautiful move.

  • Joel thought to play something here... But there is nothing to play. 😄

    • It wasn’t a computer but the person resigned and I went on

  • why Lautier doesn't reply to H6 with G6 instead of capturing

  • What would have happened if h7 captures g6 white

  • Your subtitles are covering the chess pieces.

  • Actualy at 7:56 it's even worse. You can take with the Queen and then with the rook to take back the queen after the fork

  • Is this brilliant, or that, scandi sucks

  • This is WILD

  • Be a Billionaire in RUVOL I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished] that is guaranteed to be far more challenging and exciting to play than CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.” Over time, Ruvol will surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.” Why am I so sure about this? Because I am an avid chess player myself. I found the moves in chess to be so repetitive and predictable that any clever player could easily master each and every move to a point that they can even play against opponents blindfolded. It is exactly for this very reason that I was encouraged to invent a game that cannot be mastered where every game is always a new challenge and exciting to play. The “Global Income Potential” of Ruvol is just mind-boggling! In my Google search, I found there are around 800 million chess players in the world. I could readily assume every chess player in the world would be tempted to buy a set of Ruvol to see how it compares to chess. At an average profit of just ten dollars per set, the “Global Income Potential” for the owner is a whopping US$8 billion. I am selling my copyright to Ruvol! If you are interested to buy my copyright, kindly give me your BEST OFFER. The copyright goes to the highest bidder. Or perhaps, you may know of some people who are in a better position to buy the copyright. If that is so, refer them to me and email me their names. If anyone of them gets to buy the copyright, you’ll be rewarded with a 10% commission. For security reason, the mechanics of the game will only be shown to the qualified or short-listed bidders. “Early bird catches the worm.” Thanks and God bless. RODOLFO MARTIN VITANGCOL The Ruvol Inventor

  • h6 followed by bg6 lol what a madman.

  • at 8:50 there's one more move which wins the queen rook to e6 check black pawn captures white bishop g6 check black pawn captures or king moves then the white queen takes the black queen on d4

  • When you`re a beginner and want to learn about chess: Ok, so its take take take take And first, pause the video. Now first we have to talk about parallel universes ...caputes captures and captures, thats obvious ಠ_ಠ

  • I did not see that pawn move! I only figure out something because you suggest a strange move, so I looked for one!

  • Mindblowing

  • Get well soon man. Hope you are ok now.



  • Legends Say That The BISHOP is Still Trapped There on the Chess Board.♟♟

  • Joél was a very good player and used to compete quite regularly against the likes of Kasparov, Kramnik, Karpov, Khalifman, Shirov, Adams, Grischuk, Ivanchuk, Leko et al. I think Kasparov also has a grand win against him.

  • agamator's funny moments -

  • In move no.18 why not bishop to bd2

  • Exceptionally deep move..

  • pls analysis the end game

  • 12:26 what if black plays queen to f6?

  • awesome

  • Marvelous.

  • You are a delightful chess commentator.

  • No one see at 11:05 Bishop from c1 to b2? Eat the queen or the Rock?

  • If you compare Anand and Magnus, Anand is better player. He has won games by his brilliancies while Magnus has won by blunders of others.

  • Only for an and

  • Wow

  • I feel sorry for that Bishop

  • After watching this game nothing is coming the mind except Simply stunning

  • Anand vs Sid from toy story

  • Why I think anand looks like Zayn Malik

  • I found Bg6 but missed that amazing h6 detail.

  • If the quote above the board isn't entirely true, it's close to true and certainly true enough.

  • This is the good stuff!

  • You butchered the name Joël !

  • What a game... 🙂

  • Funky Elon Musk vs Youngwanathan Anand. Best matchup possible

  • Wow

  • I got it!! I fucking got it!! I was trying to play the Bishop move on the first move for ages .........

  • Many games named greatest but which actually is the greatest game..😅😅😆

  • If your doing anand videos, you are going to get lakhs of views for free..

  • 11:16 I actually got it right. Since I was just skipping from time to time. (* ^ *) I must be a chess master !

  • All these damn comments about the bishop😂 he's trapped, leave him alone!

  • what a masterpiece

  • This was so brutal!!!

  • Vishwanath Anand vs *Elon Musk*

  • no "sorry about that" followed by "feet scratching " .......ruins this video

  • The beauty of thinking 4 or more moves ahead disguised in a rookie sacrifice move never gets old

  • That bishop who never moved but controlled the whole game reminds me of the game between Komugi and Meruem on HxH where a piece by Komugi never moved but controlled the whole board. It's insane.

  • one of the hardest find the moves

  • Vishy's and mikal tail's(pardon my spelling) have deepest of thoughts in the game of chess

  • He is playing like a mikhail tal dont worry you take my queen i will take your king

  • Wow beautiful game
