  1. Magnus might be in his declining part of his career.

  2. Does anyone else feel like Magnus is just plain uninspired by regular openings/challenges and wants to stretch himself into uncomfortable and super challenging positions, just to make it more interesting for him? He has shown that he doesn't need to be champion, etc

  3. MC needs to get a haircut. No man-bun, please.

  4. I just hope there's no crying happened after this game๐Ÿ˜‚

  5. Great Photo of Magnus, who appears to be reaping the benign results of a masterful move: getting the world champ pressure of being the target of so many gunslingers. I had hoped he would defend the title and show brilliancy in extended combat. And he seems to be doing that a lot recently, and recent analysis and commentary on his excellence in the last few years means his reputation is rising fast, post -world champ, is no chump, and sporting a smile…from the center of his beaming being.

  6. Carlsen doesnt even hardly play anymore does he? Didnt he take a break

  7. at 8:00 you do not actually win the Queen with Rc2, it is winning the game and material but its not winning the Queen since Black can block, with …Nc5, I really wonder how much agad actually thought about and analysed the position instead of just speeding through the commentary

  8. your cute computer is still in C instead of R ๐Ÿ˜…. Great review as always ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  9. Polish opening against Polish grandmaster lmao ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  10. Can i just say, thank you for those quotes above the board. They help in the most unexpected ways. Truly wise words.

  11. Only person who can beat Magnus is himself, smh

  12. Youโ€™re kind of a Dick. Always attacking Magnus it feels like

  13. Best chess game review channel. Antonio's voice and persona are just so humble and enjoyable.

  14. i dont think he did a good job to make it entertaining, more to get home soon and play poker.;)

  15. I can't remember when was the last time Ding won a rapid chess tournament. In every online chess tournament, he was eliminated very soon, the best of him was only to reach the semi-final… How can he climb to the 1st?

  16. Ding overtakes? more like Magnus gifted away his world title, and now his ranking at rapids

  17. Magnus tells a Polish joke to a Polish audience. The audience rips him to shreds… THEN they laugh.

  18. Agad should add a move counter in one of the corners

  19. You don't win the Queen ๐Ÿ‘‘ that way he can play Nc4…

  20. Wait so was this a rapid match? The little thing in the bottom right shows a "C".

  21. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘The Polish Ambassador

  22. playing polish in poland deserves respect and so does radek's excellent performance – last moves he played like an engine

  23. Magnus gets bored and tries stuff like this.

  24. nothing more satisfying than beating a higher rated opponent playing a disrespectful opening

  25. Please ensure you have the correct letter in the bottom right corner

  26. Magnus didn't only play polish defense against polish grandmaster, but he also did it in Warsaw, polish capital

  27. For some reason on mobile, your videos keep defaulting to a slightly zoomed in version when turned from portrait to landscape. Donโ€™t know if this is a setting on your end or youtubeโ€™s, my guess is the product offering (merch) has something to do with it

  28. I've come to find that you're simply just a silly clickbait chess youtuber.

  29. what if they named an opening the "hitler" opening and carlsen uses it exclusively against polish players?

  30. A "Rapid game? Then why the "C" in the corner? A rare blunder by Agadmator.

  31. This is just the magnus stuff, trying something new against lower rated players

  32. Nic (J Bruce Feynman Niccolo P. Bentulan) says:

    Magnus' worst defeat was to Wesley So in the classical 2019 wfrcc finals. Magnus lost 3x classical games in a row. When was the last time in fide or pca wc finals a defending champion lost 3x classical games in a row?

    Hans Niemann is like the last straw for Magnus Carlsen who has been fed up with Americans / Jews. I imagine Magnus thinks as follows:

    (Bobby Fischer would agree with me.)

    1 – 'I couldn't beat American Wesley So in the 2019 WFRCC and again in 2020 St Louis 9LX. Damn that nobody "w"esley "s"o who got only 1 win in the 2018 candidates.'

    2 – 'I couldn't beat Jewish American Fabi or Jewish Sergey in the classical portions of our WCCs.'

    3 – '9LX, which I suck at, was invented by Jewish American Bobby Fischer.'

    4 – 'American Eric Rosen beat me in 9LX.'

    5 – 'American Hikaru is overrated but is really just DECENT.' (Note: Hikaru became rapid WFRCC after betraying the US for Magnus. So never mind.)

    6 – 'Canadian-American Andrea Botez doesn't know how knights move.' (Note: Alex & Andrea, unlike their dad, side w/ Magnus over Hans.)

    7 – 'Jewish American Danya almost beat me in lichess. Good thing I cheated.'

    8 – 'Jewish Nepo almost beat me in the 2021 WCC. Good thing I cheated.'

    9 – 'So far in WFRCC (2019) and St Louis 9LX (2020,2021), there was always an American in 1st place and a European in 2nd place.' (Note: This extended to 2022 for both. So more reasons for Magnus.)

    9 – 'American Maurice Ashley was rude to me in the 2017 Paris GCT.'

    10 – 'American Rex Sinquefield is buying all these foreigners to be "Americans". Like I said, the US is "buying nerds"'.

    11 – 'The Queen's Gambit is about an American ey? Well because I got only 2nd place in the 2019 WFRCC, NetflixtheQG gets only 5/6 from me! Beth Harmon is just a copy of Jewish Judit Polgar & Jewish American Bobby Fischer. Also, Judit's sibling Susan is Jewish American.'

    (And then all of a sudden it blows up in Magnus' face like…)

    12 – 'Now, this Jewish American Hans beats me with the black pieces. Wait Hans has a history of cheating? Right, I can use cheating as an excuse to be a sore loser. Damn American STLCC for their poor cheating detection. Or STLCC was probably helping Hans cheat. I wouldn't quit Tata Steel or Norway chess if Hans beat me there, but I would for the Sinquefield Cup.'








  33. Nic (J Bruce Feynman Niccolo P. Bentulan) says:

    2nd comment: 2016 WCC – This is relevant to the 2023 WCC.

    Please agad cover the other decisive game of the Sergey Karjakin vs Magnus Carlsen 2016 WCC (Game 10, w/c was won by Magnus, the future TALENTLESS patzer for being 4x reigning WCC at the time of losing 3x classical games in a row to Wesley So a nobody 'w'esley 's'o who got only 1 win in the 2018 candidates). #suggestion

    What happened is that Magnus lost to Sergey AS WHITE in Game 8 but then compensated for a white loss with A WHITE WIN in Game 10. This is what happened to Ding Liren & Nepo for Games 2 & 4 of the 2023 WCC.

    Fun fact for Game 8 – 'After the game Carlsen was visibly uncomfortable and left the press conference before it began, potentially incurring a fine of 5% of his prize money to the organizers Agon, and a further 5% to FIDE.[59] FIDE released a statement the following day indicating that the penalty would be imposed.[61] The fine was reduced on appeal to 5% of the prize money (2.5% to Agon and 2.5% to FIDE).[62]'

    For Game 10: Wesley So has some interesting thoughts that DEFY STOCKFISH, as Wesley So did in 2021 St Louis Chess 9LX with the move that won the chessc*m 2021 move of the year award. (Wesley So thinks white 'still had an edge' even though the computer says black is slightly winning.)

    Some maths:

    Why doesn't a drawn match go to the player w/ more black wins (if any) s.t. Sergey Karjakin not Magnus Carlsen is 2016 WCC? Surely a black win is worth more than a white win. But you might argue 2 draws with black amounts to a win with black. Does it? No question about it in chess960, where there's no theory. In chess? Gestalt psychology says the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

    Other suggestions:

    Women's chess

    A – Was Kg6 in Dina's 1st GM slaying game in Reykjavik sexism? Like looking down on Dina?

    B – Anna Cramling's dad beats Mikhail Tal. #suggestion

    C – Philippine women's chess #suggestion – WGM Janelle Frayna, the female Wesley So, upset Georgian GM (really GM not just WGM) Bela Khotenashvili at the 2022 world blitz.

    There's a 13-move UNDERPROMOTION puzzle here.

    [Variant "From Position"]

    [FEN "6k1/6b1/1p1P3p/6pP/3pPpP1/p2NqP2/6K1/5Q2"]

    1. Qd1 a2 2. Qb3+ Kf8 3. d7 Qe2+ 4. Nf2 Ke7 5. Qd5 Kd8 6. Qe6 Bf6 7. Qe8+ Kc7 8. Qc8+ Kd6 9. e5+ Qxe5 10. d8=R+ Bxd8 11. Qxd8+ Kc6 12. Qa8+ Kb5 13. Qxa2

    For some reason none of the Philippine channels except Kelvinllovejr even cover this game. LOL. But Janelle did cover the game where e drew against Nemo, so maybe Janelle will cover this game later on.

    P.S. Please help get Wesley So on Lex Fridman's podcast. See


  34. The computer says classic in your video.

  35. Carlsen's rating now about the same as Kasparov in 1999.

  36. Magnus has only one thing to play for – fun. He achieved everything in chess there is.

  37. You are correct I am wrong because I say says:

    I thought the robot on the bottom right served some purpose instead of being ignored before starting the video with "C"
