  1. Classical Games seem more like methods of torture and endurance tests than something to enjoy.

  2. Hey agad,what's up with stienitz saga?

  3. It is fun because you are playing at a rating way under yours 🙂

  4. everyone is saying classical games, im pretty sure adgamator usually plays blitz not 60 minute games lol

  5. That last Scandinavian can also come out of an Alekhine's defense.
    It's more fun watching you play than playing it myself.

  6. yoyo, I love this type of video here bro. Thanks so much and good form by the way.

  7. Do more of these! Super fun to watch and instructional with your real-time thoughts on the position and plan.

  8. You should give me your lichess handle, would love to play a 3 min game

  9. watching you play chess is very instructional, more of these videos please

  10. 😂😂😂😂that is a blundered Knight

  11. Do you have to "WIN" like 20 games or just "PLAY" like 20 to get a rating? The first may take much longer than the second. Thanks.

  12. 15:20 White Bishop to E6, Black Bishop captures E6, White Knight captures Bishop on E6, forking Black’s queen and Rook.

  13. Opponent Blundering really helps nice Mate with the Knight and Rooks have to love discovery Checks

  14. i hate rapid chess, i love classics where actual fight is happening there

  15. In the last game: After white plays pawn to b4 not moving with the e-pawn to e5 but play black king to e5 to bring black knight to f6 to e4 to attack the pawn on f2 and the pawn on c3.

  16. Don't know anything about chess but I like how the king turns red when he's in check, like he's embarrassed or something.

  17. This is great. Perfect pace for watching and learning.

  18. That was very fun to watch! And impressive to see you think on your feet!

  19. I can't believe you didn't capture on b4 right away. You broke the cardinal rule!!!

  20. I think d4 was playable for white earlier in Game 2.

  21. Addiction incoming, I need more, one a day would do wonders

  22. 25:04 you could move the rook from d8 to h8 and win the pawn without any complications

  23. Yes I also enjoy your games a lot. Give us more 🙂

  24. Love this kind of content! I can relate to your play much easier than any of the GMs

  25. Why the… Bd3 line is bad? Personally I picked it up because it was the engine's #1 move in that position that day. Dunno what this is about the move being bad. I have a solid win rate with it too, since I end up in an equal position at worst and none of my opponents know the move, so I can play whatever afterwards and wait for some more significant blunder. I thought it was 80%, but apparently that's me against the QGD, Marshall Defense. Yeah, f5 e4 from black can be annoying to take a lot of space, but I don't feel like it's particularly hard to play as white. Black often gets a knight on f4, but the light square bishop can retreat to f1 in some lines, and in other lines it can reach f3. Meanwhile the a5 knight has a lot of problems getting back into the game, and in that regard I feel like your b4 was premature; there's always time to wait for your opponent to try developing their bishop and in turn blunder a full knight.

    I feel like the biggest difference between rapid and blitz is that now players spend a minute thinking before they trap their own knight. Well, with that there are less blunders in general as compared to blitz, but even in the 2100's there's a lot of blunders in most games. I almost exclusively play rapid, though, because it's easy to get a game but I have some time to think about things.

  26. Please do this more frequently, more learnings for me!

  27. I wonder how people manage to blunder pieces in a 10 min game with ratings 1800+. So much time to think.

  28. Pls do this more..best instructional video actually

  29. Super cool to see how you play Agadmator ! 🤔🙂

  30. There are many streamers who play chess live explaining their thoughts but this pace is perfect to fully understand… Great video, great content… Looking forward to more such videos…

    0th #9LX #chess9LX #suggestion

    1st – World Cup Round 2 – Wesley So's girlfriend Carissa Yip as black beats chinese grandmaster xue zhao.

    (3 Chinese descent in 1 sentence. Lol.)


    2nd – World Cup Round 1 – Argentina gets zugzwang by Wesley So…

    …'s girlfriend Carissa Yip

    Campos, Maria Jose (2212)

    Wesley So's girlfriend Yip, Carissa (2369)


    3rd – Alice Lee beat Wesley So…

    …'s girlfriend Carissa Yip in 2023 USCC girls juniors.

    (3 Chinese-descent Americans in 1 sentence. Lol.)

    Carissa was underperforming and even lost to a WGM because Carissa was distracted by a secret relationship with Wesley So that started in the 2022 Olympiad.

    Notice both of them are defending champions but then underperform in their 1st few OTB tournaments after the Olympiad.

    Carissa Yip

    2021 USCC women's – winner

    2022 USCC girls juniors – didn't play but would've easily won if not for playing in 2022 USCC juniors instead

    but then

    2023 USCC girls juniors – only 3rd place (should be 2nd minimum)

    Wesley So

    2019 classical WFRCC – winner

    2021 9LX – 2nd place

    2021 USCC – winner

    but then even though Wesley So is expected to be 4th minimum in the succeeding events :

    2022 9LX – only 5th place

    2022 USCC – only 5th-6th place

    2022 rapid WFRCC – only 6th place

    But ultimately they bounced back

    Carissa Yip – as black beat a GM in the 2023 women's world cup

    Wesley So – won 2022 CGC



    4th – Timestamps

    Why not let viewers make timestamps in comments then you can pin the best timestamp comment and copy the timestamps to the video description?


    5th – Magnus cheats Anish

    in 2023 superbet blitz round 7 –> 3:22:36 in 8gw7XDq87C4


    6th – Philippine women's chess – 2022 blitz WCC


    WGM Janelle Frayna, the 1st and only Philippine WGM, upset Georgian GM (really GM not just WGM) Bella 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.

    Later in 2023 Bella had a stupid choice for favourite world champion – Magnus Carlsen over Wesley So & Bobby Fischer.


    So good thing Janelle had beaten Bella.

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





  32. yes more of these please, with your Morphy and Capablanca knowledge they should be worried 😊

  33. amazing video agadmator, i'm hoping to see more content like this! maybe even turn it into a series? 🙂
