  1. I thoroughly enjoyed this video and shared with wife and daughter. Thanks agadmator! Btw, would you mind recommending some chess books? which ones are your favourite?

  2. I can’t believe that kinda mate is considered beautiful… I have to start taking pics of mine then… 🤯

  3. It's so amazing to me how these brilliant chess players have such an amazing ability to see into the future. How they're willing to sacrifice very important pieces knowing that it will later pay off. It's understandable when we see computer do this as they don't feel emption and they're not afraid of risk. It's also depressing knowing that I could never play this well. I have only been playing for two months and my elo is up to almost 850 now and I can see myself getting to 1000 by the end of the month. But being honest with myself, I know I'll never be able to play anywhere near this level, regardless of how much I practice

  4. lol! IF ANY 'Adolf' makes a statement- take notice, that man might be disturbingly dark or otherwise keep watch on! lol.

  5. It’s a great example of the ‘mind over material’ philosophy. The strategic sacrificing of one’s own pieces is the most important skill for success in chess.

  6. Why was black pawn to C3 a dangerous move? Because of white knight position after capture?

  7. Very selfish on the part of black .should have trade off his black queen to save the king to balance the powers.

  8. Castling should have done. Jean was being adamant and cocking a snook at the traditional ways.

  9. Dude literally was planning this game for probably 20 years plus. He knew the outcome 10-15 moves before it ended

  10. That is not a check mate omg. Move the black king to H6

  11. My favorite game is the one and only: Peruvian Immortal.

  12. I think people are missing a lot of reality when they try to say that today's GMS would easily beat people like Paul Morphy and Bobby Fischer. How good would any of these people be if you took them out of this era and had them be born the same year as paul morphy with all the knowledge he had about Chess. how many of them would have been able to beat Paul morphy? I think it's possible the answer is absolutely none not even Magnus

  13. LOL dude his donations are weird lol is it a comma instead of a period lol 100,00 lol.

  14. @7:33 Couldn't Jean have moved his Queen back to capture the bishop

  15. For that defensive move for black, …Bc5 stands out to me in that position. I didn’t count what move that’s on, sorry.

  16. Phoe: doo-frane (i only know this from mitch hedberg)

  17. The romantic era of chess is really amazing.

  18. Not a Chess expert but To me this beats Fisher’s Queen sacrifice game and definitely game of the century of the 1800’s.

  19. 7:08 :-> if he would have used horse to take down camel then he would have win the match , he made mistake by using king…!

  20. Aww, Jean Dufresne could have killed the Rook at d1 with his queen. Missed.

  21. Doo-frain – I think that's the pronunciation.

  22. That is an amazing game. I think I saw this many years ago, and was always amazed by the queen sacrifice but the thing that’s really stunning about this game is that black was always one move away from checkmate. In other words, Anderson that only had to figure out a way to make black. He had to make sure there were no contingencies wear black could even get away from check for one move. That is amazing. Anderson was a class guy too. He came out of retirement to play Morphy when most of the best players in Europe were trying to hide from the formidable American.

  23. Find a woman that loves you as much as Dufresne loves not castling.

  24. Agadmator has been on the b4 train since day one, and he still talks about it in 2023 lol

  25. I can understand you watching this game over and over again. Trying to figure out why he did not Castle on the Black Side…

  26. I thought something was on my phone screen. So I tried too wipe his mole off. I need to stop smoking so much pot…

  27. Did anyone else not c the check mate to where the queen would take the center pin I front of the king with the room pertecting it so it’s mate

  28. That wasnt even a good game. How do you fail to castle?

  29. Holy shit. That mate is with the bishops. The eye for that over the board is insane

  30. Couldn’t Jean go Queen or knight to f5 while the bishop was there?
