  1. every move that could take over the game were so weird and hard to find in time scramble, draw is a good result here, let's go HANS !!!!

  2. I wanna see scrub daiy vs skibidi tailyor mikha❤

  3. Hans played so well until middle game but his beads run out of battery near the end.

  4. I just can imagine hans having more time, and crushing alireza in this game. "He is cheating".

  5. With such time pressure Hans was on the edge of his seat. He was truly playing by the seat of his pants.

  6. Hans hanging with the Big Boys giving them comp Love seeing it Thanks Agadmator

  7. This is in the Villa Marina venue of my home country. I have notified my brother, who claims the contestants are fortunate that he did not enter the competition himself.

  8. Couldn’t convert the game against the future

  9. Very boring channel, fuck why you never show the real game it's always if… If… If….



  12. why don't you analyze Nodirbek's incredible win, who won the Qatar masters ?

  13. @Agadmator your board is off center and not straight

  14. Am I missing something ? Doesn't e3 (2:59) lose to ..g5?. I believe that's why Rf1 has to be played.

  15. Every time Hans wins, or gets a high quality draw like this one, Magnus looks more and more petty. And when Magnus loses to low rated players, that’s a win for Hans and Magnus looks more petty. Shame on everybody who disrespected Hans for beating Magnus.

  16. To the guys who have hopes for Hans , I just say time will tell .

  17. Hans is very strong against strong opponents but loosing horribly to very weak players..

  18. Tony you are a good man respect from iraq..

  19. im sorry but this commentary is so lazy and terrible, can u try to actually think for urself and talk about plans etc instead of just puking out computer moves for an entire video?

  20. Hans ass must hurt at the time trouble part, he even messed it up.

  21. Caruana is 2800? didn't watch any videos since the war started

  22. The game has pluged deeply in the mind of Hans.

  23. We are witnessing a shame in chess history, you can see how he plays second-third best moves sometimes and the best engine moves sometimes. And he makes really weirdly bad moves time to time. He missed like 3-4 opportunity to check mate alireza with black pieces. That never happens among super GMs.

  24. 11:40 How does the rook win the bishop exactly? It looks like both bishops can stop that pawn without sacrifice.

  25. Hans immediately saw it but didn't want to be called as a cheater

  26. Hans looking strong. I dont even have any jokes.

  27. I don't like the cheater, nor the games he plays.

  28. …thanks for showing Niemann …and Alireza. What a game!!

  29. Wow, he BABBLED almost as much as Levy! Wouldn't have thought it possible!

  30. I enjoy the Hans games. I don’t like Hans and I like to root against him. I like to see him lose. I like humility and I despise arrogance.

  31. That's why Alireza does not overcomplicate… Shows 20 moves 😂

  32. At 9:22, after Re7, why is it a “free bishop”? Why not Qxc6? I’m sure I’m missing something. (edit: this is why I lose)

  33. #suggestion

    Hello Agadmator. Could you make a video about chess principles? What to try to do, what to avoid, some aphorisms from chess legends etc.

    Thanks in advance!

  34. Face speaks for itself.
    – Niemann, Hans Moke

  35. Shame Hanz did not find RE8. I would most enjoy more silence, from those that accused him of prior transgressions.

  36. It is 2023. Mid-level engines are far stronger than the best human chess players. Tablebases have optimized thousands of endgames. Opening theory is deeper than ever before, and there is still too much "drawish" play at the top levels.

    Yet here, out of a fairly unremarkable opening, we have "a completely new game" on move 7.

    Don't let them tell you chess is dead!

  37. Here’s a cool hypothetical question. I am not accusing Hans of cheating just speculating on the situation…

    WHAT IF you found a way to cheat undetected? How would you use that power? When?
