46 Comments

  1. Neuro Linguistics Programing (NLP) is when eye movements first studied. Looking up is visual. Looking down to the side is internal dialogue.

  2. I love the over analysis of Hikaru’s facial expressions.

  3. Just a real fan of GM Hikaru "I literally dont care" Nakamura knows how to read his head movements.

  4. Danny is a national treasure, or should I say international treasure?

  5. Hikaru is travelling through universes when he's looking up

  6. i swear the casters are just doing it for the content XD

  7. I've been watching this while preparing for exams and it is genuinely some of the most interesting stuff on YT for chess right now. Thanks H πŸ™‚

  8. why music at the end is like 10 times louder than the video?

  9. I love hearing Hikaru whine about moves he should have made πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

  10. I love when Hikaru's just disgusted by the brilliancy of engine moves πŸ€–βœ¨

  11. Why does it sound like there's a plane flying overhead the whole video?

  12. The way he feels about computer lines is the way I feel about his huge calculations he says so nonchalantly like they are nothing!

  13. Hikaru at 7:24 : "Again, I need to think about this _very carefully_…"
    Hikaru, 300 milliseconds later: moves

  14. "I need to think about this very carefully."

    Makes a move 1 second later.

  15. I love Anna's reaction and smile while Danny is doing the Hikaru expressions analysis ..

  16. I feel like that King d6 move at the very end of that line analysis is quintessential computer BS

  17. Everyone:
    Danny Rensch: As you see black has played the Bulgarian somersault which gives white the option of counterattacking with the Frenchman's cumsock

  18. That's the difference when GMs commentate and when IMs do.

    Pretty sure danya nd hess won't be that.

  19. can someone answer why hikaru is so often in lost positions

  20. Funny thing hikaru misplays every game and wins 99 percent

  21. Always love when Danny Rensch does commentary πŸ˜‚

  22. I don't understand, Kf8, isn't it checkmate with Qh2 :/ at 14:40 or is that pawn built different?

  23. While everyone is looking at the facial expressions, Hikaru is checking the screens on the ceiling.

  24. 2:10 how come he didn’t take the pawn? I understand that white might have wanted him to take but what are the threats on black if he were to take? Is it bc he doesn’t want to open up the b file for white?

  25. Danny is hilarious.
    IM Beth Renschmon? Since when did Beth get downgraded to IM?

  26. That was the sketchiest opening, I know because I play something very similar with the black pieces. Almost exclusively.

  27. Hikaru out here beating GM with prep with just instincts.

  28. Haha. Danny almost murdered Anna with his jokes. lol
