  • Hi man. Thanks for your videos. Just curious, how much did you get better at chess by making these SEnewss videos and analyzing all these games? Have you noticed any difference?

  • Agad, you made me go to the bathroom....and change my hoodless dressing-gown for a hooded one. Well done you, sir ! :)

  • Let's get a hoodie, it's the game of HOODIE GUY! Cheers to him!

  • I'm watching this two weeks later and winter is here, so I am wearing a hoodie.

  • I want a hoodie! Please

  • I like the way White castles and then uncastles

  • Did I stop the video, put on a black hoodie, and continued watching? Y E S

  • the hoodie guy must be from Bielefeld

  • [SPOILER FOLLOWS] When white plays Ne5, wouldn't e7 also win?

  • You talk so much, you tired me

  • Significant change in the fps

  • A clear demonstration of the danger of wearing a hoodie.

  • Taps head: "Can't capture my pawns if there are no pawns."

  • Why do you always call bishops "rooks"?

  • King handicap

  • Worst...thumbnail...ever. I've watched your channel for years, but you're going too far. Stick to what made you likeable. Concise, interesting, chess videos. Please don't try to emulate the famous. They are once famous for a reason. They lost focus.

  • As a party pooper, I'll be the 667th comment. 🤣🤣🤣

  • There's a reason why simple analysis by Agad is better than complex analysis by others.....so much wit and heart!!♥️🙏🏻

  • Didn't know, but I am wearing a hoodie watching this at 3 am

  • too much waste talk. please be more specific and make shorter videos

  • What if at the end he captured the last pawn with the queen instead of the rook? I didn't really look into it but its like something I would've done

  • Me:Agadmator is the real hoodie guy?!? Agadmator:Always has been

  • So glad to have something to celebrate in these gloomy times - first ever video where the hoodie guy is related to the non hoody guy. @agadmator so good to see you pushing the boundaries! 😂💪

  • That was dope man.

  • in 6:35 instead of capturing the black knight why the white rook didn't capture the queen?

  • #Aron Nimzowitsch vs Jose Raul Capablanca (1927) please

  • I spotted the winning move. Yeahhhh

  • Everyone: Defend with your pawns. Don't leave your king open. William Robert Ballard: nah

  • It's not an 8 pawn gambit since the other side lost 1 pawn

  • Hey Agadmator! Will you make a 5th Funniest moments!?

  • I was wearing a hoodie.

  • I think not having knight made things easier for white, he was like well i dont have to worry about it now...nice game, love this chanel

  • I hoodied up five minutes before clicking on this. guess it was meant to be.

  • why wear a hood?

  • some of danish gambit games get pretty bad with pawn losses and lots of sacrificing, not saying I win them all, more like 50/50 but it is a fun way to play at my rating of 1250, and a lot of times your opponent will end up blundering the pieces back

  • the whole game: so black can develope pieces here....

  • Where's my hoodie ...

  • When a comedian does not make Agadmator laugh: _"You're just down too much material."_

  • Enjoyable game - quite different.

  • I was lucky to wear a hoodie! It's lunch time and cold AF lol

  • This reminds me of how we used to play chess when we were seven. The first eight moves were: 1. a4 a5 2. b4 b5 3. c4 c5 4. d4 d5 5. e4 e5 6. f4 f5 7. g4 g5 8. h4 h5 Move 9 would begin a flurry of pawn captures. Once those pesky pawns were out of the way, we got down to "real" chess. LOL! Once, my friend started out with 1. h4 and I had to think for twenty minutes to figure out my reply. Seriously, we basically knew that playing that way isn't very good chess, but we were little kids and thought this was funny.

  • 12:09 Stockfish thinks the best move for black was b6 here with 0.00 evaluation equalizing the game. d6 was the second best with +0.57 eval. The actual move of Re8 is +3.97 with Ne5 continuation, so you are right of course, black should have just given up the rook for development tempo there.

  • A white knight is missing at the start

  • The opponent who was playing black was to greedy and faced the consequences for his greed to keep pawns rather than return them

  • I actually enjoy older games much more than modern games

  • A handicap game !!! Like Shogi or Go!!! A long lost acquirement.

    • What do you think, it's a lot like starting a game of 2 AIs with human opening patterns. Silly.

  • Hey Agad, the minibar Gambit has that other deficit too, that’s where they went ..hahaaa

  • This brings up something I wonder about. How do you get developed against a strong attack while still defending?

  • Me at the start of video:where did th knight go??

  • Who else was wearing a hoodie when this game appeared on the channel.

  • …and this is covered by the queen (selects e5, two squares away from the king), so, the black king has no where to go.

  • They were brothers in law, Ballard's sister Louisa married Colonel Joseph George Fagan of the 2nd Bombay Lancers. She was a very strong chess player in her own right as well, so Fagan was likely losing all of his games to both his wife and her brother

  • Plot Twist: In the original game white never actually moved his queen Knight and agadmator just removed it

  • I‘m very new to chess, but would white pawn from e6 to e7 be a good move around 10:25 threatening the rook on f8 which can‘t move because if it did, white could promote it‘s pawn to a rook and threat checkmate?

    • Maybe i‘m thinking completely wrong

  • My game against Nakamura senewss.info/slow/m6vSbpCGiLfHkJE/video

  • 11:13 Queen to H5 is CHECK...

  • *I am pretty sure there were no hoodies back then*

  • Hi

  • 9:40 If Black King to H8, there would have been an epic windmill. I hope Agadmator can show a came with an Epic windmill. (However i call them machine guns).

  • Pawngrabber

  • Shows underdeveloped material is useless.

  • Too hot, can't join hoodie gang

  • Out of curiosity (because I'm pretty weak at chess and I'm sure I'm missing it), if black captured the e7 pawn with queen instead of rook, would that have changed the course of the game in any meaningful way? Black's queen would have a shot at the knight to prevent checkmate if the same order follows, and queen can't take rook without being taken by King in that situation either. I'm sure I'm missing something, but I'm just curious

  • I sed knight to H4 ; I DON'T UNDERSTAND!!!!! The queen takes the knight after knight to e5..... and you didn't even play out that scenario..... What the hell am i missing here? I'm SO confused.

  • Speaking of hoodies make some merch. :)

  • Ballard didn't start the game missing a knight. The first moves of the game were actually: 1. Nc3 Nf6 2. Ne4 Nxe4 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Ng1 Ng8. This makes about as much sense as the rest of the game!

  • OH NO MY Pawns....... sorry wrong channel

  • So who else threw up the hood?

  • 0:10 i thought i was going to say "i haven't been able to find the knight from b1"

  • Is there hoodie merch?

  • 👩‍🔬👨‍🔬🌞🌝

  • Did anyone else get a Master Chess Kasparov ad?

  • Beautiful game. Thank you Agadmator

  • agad is getting more subscribers lately!, already in 815!

  • How many players of you are ready to play without "QUEEN" with me???? 🤳🤳🤳

  • white gave knight only. But my Opponent makes me donor every time. They swipe whole pcs. 🤣🤣🤣

  • Hmmm, so maybe Snot is using his rap career to honor the hoodie guy🤔

  • 13:35 checkmate lol

  • I definitely thought the winning move was Nh4, but I’m basically a beginner so what do I know

  • Dear adagd. can you post one game of Alexander Khalifman

  • Is agad trying to look like Joseph George Fagan? Or maybe he IS Joseph George fagan...

  • Nice video and entertaining game for sure. Poor hoodie guy xD For some reason (I guess it's obvious why if you take a look at the game) it reminded me of the following game played in a testing round for the TCEC competition in March 2020 (Season 17, DivP test 1, game 2) between Lc0 and SF at time odds, you find the game at tcec-chess.com/#div=divptest1&game=2&season=17 I would really appreciate if you would feature this absolute gem on your channel :)

  • Play with samay

  • Man, i have to sleep and you add a weird game, now my brain wont shut down due curiosity. Well played.

  • Do the hoody guys always lose?

  • What is going on under your desk?

  • Go back with the bishop and lose the queen? 6:20

  • I think alphazero can play a knight odds or rook odds against stockfish

  • "I guess that was a thing." Haha.

  • No benefit in getting knight odds when you keep your bishop, knight and rook stuck in their starting positions, doing nothing in the game...

  • I'm sorry, its not a real game because guy in a hoodie never loses

  • I have found a game with Queen sac on move 9 without any forced variations. Agadmator, will you check that out?

  • I have zero knowledge bout chess. this guy's makes it sooooo intense and interesting.

  • There is museum in the right corner of black's force

  • 'Dude, where are my pawns' - a documentary by Michael Moore.

  • 11:25 what if you take the pawn on d7 with the bishop?

  • Chess Grandmasters Rankings from 1970-2020 senewss.info/slow/aNC-n9Vnr93botQ/video

  • Great video, as always but I think you need to catch up on your sleep... many more mistakes than usual with naming the pieces , colours or even calling checkmate just check...

  • I love the older games. Thanks.
