  • P.S. dont forget the burgers and Chesse

  • Why is the title not Wrath of Khan ?

  • more like ..."Can't of Kan"!

  • Why on earth did Magnus allow the king side to be opened like that?

  • Did you think about the move for black knight e 5 to defense?

  • so that's what happens when you open your kingside

  • Every time that those 2 play, I feel like Magnus is trolling

  • agamator's funny moments - senewss.info/slow/iLeZZtB1ad7LqJk/video

  • Call of your existence and the details of the world moves towards the best of the best way forward to hearing back from the market for your help urgently need to know what actually happened in your channel subscriptions for the time to troubleshoot the best way for you and I was wondering if there were any chance of getting a new endpoint

  • 4:10 "even though you've messed up my king structure" :)

  • Magnus is tired of slapping every one of them so he just tried to enjoy with some silly moves

  • Chess in 2025 be like: already at move 50, we have a completely new game.... ....resign 52th move. :D

  • @agadmator What about knight to h6, queen captures then rooke to g file offering exchange, if exchange declined and white moves rooke to h file then black rooke to g7... The basic idea is to lose the kight by placing on g6


  • Well...it was in this position that.... 😬 Sorry about that!!

  • Is it just me, or does Hikaru just keep getting better?

  • What you "could probably should" play here😂😂😍

  • Before the match began Magnus and his girlfriend went for the Queen’s Gambit if you catch my drift.

  • Carlsy vs Nakamuring

  • Your videos and explanations are fantastic man . The chess genius channel thank you so much

  • Any more Leela chess zero versus Stockfish games? there are some great games going on onTCEC atm

  • #suggestion Komodo v. Stockfish (1-0) Game 47 TCEC, Premier Division

  • That's a nice joke.. 🤣🤣🤣 I laughed the hell outt 😂😂😂😂

  • senewss.info/slow/qdGtgbdyjrW5qpE/video

  • I really thought Hikaru was gonna do the bongcloud vs magnus😂

  • Damnnn, somebody still miffed ,LTSG.

  • #suggestion Caruana loss a classical game against Erwin L'Ami in Schach Bundesliga recently. Can you cover that @agadmator?

  • 7:13 Which square I'm sorry?

  • I like watching agadmator with you 🤗

  • Nice game!

  • #suggestion Bronstein vs Tal....Bronstein beats Tal with the King's Gambit.

  • #suggestion @6:19 1. Rxg7, Qxg7 or it's mate in 2 2. Qxg7+, Kxg7 forced 3. f6+, Kf8 4. fxe7+, Kxe7 5. Bxa6, ... This is to simplify the game and gain a large advantage, freeing both "a" and "b" columns. With a correct playing, it's impossible for the black to avoid those two pawns' promotions. What do you think about it?

  • With the e6 a6 setup, black has lots of dark squares to play on, but if he gives up his dark squared bishop he becomes very weak on the dark squares. Thus Bc5 being opposed by Be3 is very dubious for black.

  • This is not the best of magnus He never gives such poor performance with his exposed king

  • It was not going to change the standings. I think Carlson had better things to do at the time.

  • When you picked up the King... :)))))))))

  • "I recommend this guide: *ascg.best/igfl-guide-557* So grateful it exists." 1:53 Η τέλεια μέθοδος για όλους

  • Magnus quickly went for the "bang cloud" opening before the game even start

    • Refers to 09 min 55 secs in: _youtube DOT com/watch?v=1kUZsSBs7fw&t=9m55s_

  • Where is chucky?

    • @Peter Mortensen Yes. Why he is not participating

    • Chucky? Vassily Ivanchuk? *en DOT wikipedia DOT org/wiki/Vasyl_Ivanchuk*

  • The only reason for not going bongcloud was that he knows Carlsen is an expert in bongcloud himself!

  • Why not play knight to G6

  • Hello. I am a regular viewer of your channel and it's my request if you upload four games for V. Anand with white piece Ruy Lopez , Petoff's defence , Against Sicilian Najdorf and the winning game against Fritz 6 ( the Italian game with Black pieces ) Thank you 🌻

  • So if there wasn't a tie, would first place win 90,000? That's pretty wild if they had to split it.

  • #suggestion hey agad pls show pentala harikrishna's win against carlsen from saint louis blitz

  • Imagine being Firouzja and winning $11,000 (and whatever else he's won) at his age omg😭

  • Carlsen may have avoided the line at 2:30 not because of f5, but because of e5. To explain, instead of putting the queen on g3, if Nakamura put it on h3 then he gets a checkmate threat immediately after playing e5 in response to Ne3, because the bishop and queen are both eying the h7 square. After Carlsen were to play h6, then Nakamura would play exd6 and get an advanced passed pawn that can be supported by whichever rook is remaining (if Nxf1, then there's still a rook at d1 and if Nxd1, then Rxd1 and the pawn will be supported when the bishop moves). Carlsen probably could still play for a win, but the complexity of the line is probably why he avoided it.

  • (5:16) (cutting off magnus' internet cables). done. found it! ;)

  • Why agad has scissors in his hand at 0:07?

  • The opening joke 😂 you could double down on it and add: "and it was in this position that Magnus resigned" 😁

  • #suggestion hikaru vs alireza round 13 I guess

  • Is that a CNN T-shirt?

  • Hi Agadmator.. seems you're a Star Trek fan!! 😁 😁

  • Y don't u upload Harikrishna Games

  • Why Firouzca have no flag in the points track?

  • Is Magnus playing too much chess? At the end of the St Louis games he said he slept badly and attributed his final day's poor play to this.

  • Magnus Carlsen resigned the game??? Is that a thing?

  • #suggestion Bronstein vs mikhail tal (1968)

    • Mikhail Tal *en DOT wikipedia DOT org/wiki/Mikhail_Tal*

  • 0:30 _bruh_

  • #suggestion Harikriahna vs magnus Saint Louis blitz(2020)

  • "If you don't capture the piece, then you're down a piece" *everyone knows that*

    • @Peter Mortensen oh yeah *sorry about that*

    • "you're" (not "your"). See e.g.: _www DOT wikihow DOT com/Use-You%27re-and-Your_ You can edit your comment.

  • #suggestion Caruana vs Radjabov Chessable Masters 2020 (Round 9) also, there is wrong PGN in this and previous video :)

  • Every event is going with shared winners. #2020

  • Well mcagnus has been defeated 3 times by Sicilian.......

  • #suggestion : carlsen vs pentala. excellend end game win by pentala

  • This is the chess equivalent of a friendly international right? If the game really mattered to Magnus this would never have happened

  • #suggestion Dibyendu Barua vs Viktor Korchnoi

  • Daaamn that disconnection just cost magnus 45,000$ instead of paying an extra 20$ for unlimited high speed internet and wifi router 😂 smh

  • #suggestion: Harikrishna vs Carlsen

  • When u move the white king at 2nd move... My eyes enlarged...😮😮

  • i like this game. no easy gay draw. both guys play like real chessmen and put their balls on the board. hey brother on the street we are hello friends. but on chess i try for to sh!t on your face👍!

  • Magnus vs pentala #suggestion

  • #suggestion Can you show Grischuk vs Nepo please, simply because it was a very weird game..

  • Agadmator u content on chess are just amazing.

  • 2:45 what if hikaru plays queen to f2.

  • what if he just rolled suppp broooos want some hash? nah, straight square brew... and played the bong cloud but whooped everyone. (im assuming its played in person)

  • Everyone has a bad day at the office.

  • I believe you.

  • #suggestion harikrishna pentala vs magnus carlsen St.louis blitz tournament 2020

  • 5:56 we can show it if you don't believe me HAHAHAH

  • 0:30 prank of the year 😂😂😂

  • You threw me off by explaining how Qh3 is even a faster win before showing how Qg3 wins. You didn’t really say what the threat is but I figured out it’s moving Qg4. The threat is on the g file but you didn’t really say it. Anyway I just thought that should be more clear for marginal players like myself.

  • Hey agad, plz cover the games of #P.Harikrishna,

  • Well done hikaru..

  • Cover the BONG CLOUD!

  • Show Harikrishna vs magnus match.

  • #suggestion: There is a mistake in one game from the morphy saga. I don't know which one but I have commented on that game too a few weeks ago.

  • #suggestion The best game of TCEC so far, Leela offers a pawn, knight, and exchange: tcec-chess.com/#div=p&game=167&season=19

  • "That of course is a joke. After all, this is magnus" no body want to play bongcloud against world champion of course

  • Let us see some welsey so games.....

  • Shared first, what is the world coming to?

  • Why you didn't upload Harikrishna vs Aronian

  • #suggestion Grischuk vs nepo plzz

  • Bong cloud? I was like, "What? Against Magnus?"

  • hikaru is magnus nemesis.😆

  • I didn't know what the Age of Caissa was so I had to look it up. That sounds really cool man, definitely going to check it out!

  • And as of move 23, Carlsen is finally naked

    • Refers to 09 min 55 secs in: _youtube DOT com/watch?v=1kUZsSBs7fw&t=9m55s_

  • Hikaru again proves that he can beat Carlsen for world championship

  • And it was in this position carlsan's shirt resign the game.

  • Please show the game between Magnus and Harikrishna Pentala..in which Harikrishna Pentala had won the game

  • What the ? Adgamator missed that if Carlsen try to win the exchange Naka plays Qf2 pinning the knight

    • OK,i just saw black can move the Queen :)
