  1. Love the queen twirl in the intro πŸ˜€ was that Carlsen doing the queen twirl?

  2. Now that you mention it, perhaps not… but still, that queen twirl was awesome!

  3. Love seeing all of them having a good time.

  4. My objetive is world chess….we are the champions my friend!!!! BRASIL BRASIL BRASIL!!!

  5. I WIN FRITZ 5.32 TODAY!!! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

  6. i don't think so, you can see the ring on his finger, which means it's either Topalov or some other older player who's married πŸ˜‰

  7. about the spinning queen! it is Gelfand!

  9. 2:23 should have been a draw. RxB KxR h7 RxB+ KxR Kg7 and pawn will be stopped and the a pawn could have promoted, Carlsen shoulda lost.

  10. No it is not true. There is no way to make a draw after RXB. Because
    RxB KxR h7 RxB+ fXR Kg7 e6 KXh7 e7 so e pawn cannot be prevented.

  11. If josh w would have stayed with chess, would he be a WORLD CHAMPION TODAY???

  12. Magnus carlsen is like amazing. Great video!

  13. but after a few simple moves even if he did take the rook magnus woulda had 1 or 2 queens and could win quite easily.

  14. 2:48 Maaaais ou menos, mais ou meeenos, mais ou menos…

    No, because instead of KxR, Carlsen could take the rook with a pawn and then one of the two Carlsen's pawn's gets promoted before Karjakin's.

  16. To be honest I like Topalov's attitude when he plays chess.

  17. Ω„Ωˆ ΩƒΩ†Ψͺ ΨΊΩ†ΩŠ Ω‚Ω„ΩŠΩ„Ω†Ψ§ Ω„Ψ§ ΩˆΨ¬Ω‡ΨͺΩƒ

  18. Then they would meet again for the world championship in classical time control
