  1. Without any 'help from outside', draw with Ali Reza seems winning to me. Well played, Hans. He certainly improved a lot, I see.

  2. This is why Magnus is better. He's the only one who knows to double rooks.

  3. Hey, agadmator! I like that you put chess player quotes above the board in your videos. ๐Ÿ˜Š However, when Hans Niemann plays, I always remember his (in)famous quote. ๐Ÿ˜…

  4. I had to turn my phone on silent. The vibrations were a pain in the ass……

  5. Why wouldn't you take the rook and leave the bishop?

  6. He couldn't win cuz he failed to cheat๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  7. #suggestion best game of the round was definitely Arjun vs jumabayev.
    What a rollercoaster ride of more than 6 hours!

  8. All the Hans jokes are so stale. So tired of hearing about batteries/beads etc

    It wasnt funny a year ago.

  9. How could anyone calculate that first long line ๐Ÿ˜…

  10. I'm rooting for Hans and so far he's having a great tournament. Alireza is two days older than Hans. I thought that was interesting.They've been competing against each other for a long time.

  11. he cant face anyone: that requires to be a man…

  12. Hans had 1 minute left… but!
    His time control speaks for itself.

  13. FIDE Chess channel has a great video where Hans and Firouzja analyse the game together. Recommend checking it out!

  14. Why aren't u calling out hans for cheating?

  15. What happened with Hanz cheating saga ? didn't hear a bout that problem for a while.

  16. 2:57 doesn't e3 just lead to g5 trapping the bishop and losing the game? (instead of the long line you showed?)

  17. Whenever I see Moke, i see him saying in Oppenheimer's voice:
    โ€œI am become fish, destroyer of chessโ€

  18. How come no Hikaru games. He had some pretty decent wins so far.

  19. Wow an opponent that can handle not beating a lower rated player without insinuating cheating like a whiny baby. How refreshing. There are a few real men left in the game.

  20. Pls show us the masterpiece played by GM Duda Krzysztof vs GM Murzin Volodor

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

    Hikaru's wife lost to Wesley So's girlfriend, who thanked him as her secret second in the 2023 USCC closing ceremony speech.

    But Atousa almost beat Carissa Yip!

    It wasn't a clean victory. Carissa was losing most of the game. Atousa just blundered in the end.

    Please consider reviewing this game and in particular spreading the rumour that Carissa Yip is dating Wesley So based on Carissa's X header – it's a photo of just Carissa & Wesley (& Leinier & Melik).

    move 54 for black is an 8-move equality puzzle

    it's so sharp

  22. My daughter saw ur video and she says why ur room is messy. My daughter sees that ur room is messy ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  23. Plz clean up ur room if its messy ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช

  24. "this is something your uncle and supergms play' – agadmator

  25. i guess hans forgot to bring his silicon friend this time

  26. I like and enjoy agadmator's very much. But I don't understand why he continuously shows the game of a proven cheater. He is lucky enough not to get banned from chess in general but he certainly doesn't deserve to be on this channel

  27. Hans never touched 1800 club , that's the reason I said Time Will Tell , until then he is just another rookie .

  28. Why are you showing hans game too much ? He is not nice guy stop it , I watched for Alireza but this game not good enough is it ๐Ÿค” whatever mate I'll not follow you anymore thanks anyway ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  29. Very nice work dude! Viva Eastern Bloc!! Viva Slavic countries!!

  30. Notice ever since the scandal Hans hasn't played anywhere near the level he was at when he trounced Magnus? … I guess chess really does speak for itself

  31. I love your Chanel โคโคโค

  32. At 11:40 you claim that the rook will be able to force one of the bishops to be given up for the pawn, but AFAICS that's not accurate. The dark squared bishop will simply move to a1 to blockade it while the light squared bishop attacks the pawn on a2, able to capture if the rook moves away to try to control the bottom rank to attack a1. If the light bishop captures the pawn, yes, your two bishops are lined up, but one of them will always be able to move with check, possibly safely but at least giving itself up for another pawn. So best case scenario, you'll have a rook and one pawn against a bishop and two pawns, still a draw. Maybe I'm wrong but I think at GM level this would be very easy to hold to a draw.

  33. I always laugh when he says brutal game ๐Ÿฅฒ
