  1. Magis carlsen is the best chess player in the world ๐ŸŒŽ

  2. @agadmator I don't know if following your channel has anything to do with the suggestions I have been receiving on YouTube for Lidija Baฤiฤ‡.. Man, just wanted to say with such assets you can checkmate the whole world ๐Ÿ˜œ

  3. Everytime he says we get an equal position me: huh are you sure ?

  4. Antonio, I love your content. I think I said I recently got back into chess, if not, then I just want to reiterate my appreciation for your commitment to chess and chess history. I know watching your analysis of games has helped me. I appreciate the fact that you are passionate about teaching chess. I think I have watched your entire Paul Charles Morphy series twice and starting a 3rd. Love your analysis of the older masters and grand masters. Keep it up! All the best!!!

  5. Jan smeets ร— Jan kryztaf duda โœ“

  6. New mythical player : normal hair magnus.

  7. Garry Kasparov cheated Judit Polgar in 1994 Linares.

    Magnus Carlsen cheated Alexandra Kosteniuk in 2009 blitz WCC.

    Hikaru Nakamura cheated Levon Aronian in 2016 candidates.

    Why celebrate them, Liren Ding, Daniil Dubov & Veselin Topalov over Wesley So, Bobby Fischer, Hans Niemann, Ian Nepomniachtchi, Sergey Karjakin & Vlad Kramnik who INSIDE chess and as ADULTS have never done anything evil ( cheating, baseless accusations, hypocrisy, discrimination, treason, etc ) ?

  8. 3rd: Hans Niemann = next Bobby Fischer

    – Wesley So = current Bobby Fischer

    – Bobby Fischer's ghost = old Bobby Fischer

    – Beth Harmon = Bobby Fischer in another universe

    Each of these 4 'is a prodigy, had a rather dark childhood and is American'.

    Speaking of Wesley So

    Hikaru's (the rapid WFRCC) wife almost beat Wesley So's (the classical WFRCC) girlfriend!

    2023 USCC – Indeed Carissa Yip won and thanked Wesley So as her secret second in the 2023 USCC closing ceremony speech.

    But in Carissa vs Atousa, Carissa was losing most of the game. Atousa just blundered in the end.

    move 54 for black is an 8-move equality puzzle

    it's so sharp

    [Variant "From Position"]

    [FEN "1Q5k/3r1rn1/p3N3/Pp1p2P1/1q2p3/1B2R2P/5P2/6K1 b"]

  9. 2nd: What's it like in a parallel universe where 9LX is standard chess, and Garry really is Garry chess?

    1 – People are praising Wesley So, Ian Nepomniachtchi, Bobby Fischer & Anatoly Karpov. Agadmator & Levy are talking about Wesley & Nepo all day long.

    2 – Garry really is Garry chess here.

    Switch Bobby & Garry dates of birth. (Bobby's last name here is probably Nemenyi.) Meanwhile Garry Kasparov invented something strange called 'chess1' aka 'Kasparov Deterministic' where you have only 1 SP. Garry quits the 1975 classical WCC Vs Anatoly Karpov, is arrested in Russia (instead of Japan), immigrates to Iceland and dies in 2008. 1975 is not a big loss. In fact, it's better because Bobby Fischer takes over. 1978 is Bobby vs Anatoly match of the century in Baguio, the Philippines! Idk what happens in 1981, but then 1984 Eugene Torre wins the candidates and faces Anatoly/Bobby! In 1976, I guess Eugene still beats Anatoly. Either Anatoly or Bobby. (Trivia: In our world, Eugene almost beat Bobby in 1992.)

    3 – Bobby is still alive in 2024. Bobby, Anatoly, Sergey Karjakin, Wesley, Nepo are on Lex Fridman's podcast while Magnus, Garry & Hikaru aren't.

    4 – In the 2019 inaugural world Kasparov Deterministic chess championship (WKDCC), Magnus beats Wesley in 3 classical chess1 games in a row in but no one cares. Fabi is still the top 4 in the 2019 world chess1 championship but the top3 is now Liren. Nepo has never played a chess1 game, just as in our world Liren has never played a recorded 9LX game before 2024Feb.

    5 – Wesley/Nepo doesn't quit the 2023 classical WCC. Nepo/Wesley wins 2022 candidates and no one cares about Liren. Wesley So Vs Ian Nepomniachtchi is the biggest rivalry in chess, far exceeding as well as succeeding the next biggest rivalry Bobby Fischer vs Anatoly Karpov, like Better Call Saul to Breaking Bad. Wesley, & Nepo are both considered GOATs along with Bobby & Anatoly. There's no distinction between GOAT & MTOAT. There's a slight bias towards Wesley because Wesley is Bobby's nephew.

    6 – Chess' popularity in the Philippines & Norway are inverted.


    In our world, Bobby had radio interviews in the Philippines. In this world, Garry has radio interviews in Norway.


    Then Prospero Pichay Jr is imprisoned and the Philippine chess federation is free from corruption. But Wesley is still American. Huhuhu. Oh, in this reality, Magnus' parents are evil and then Magnus gets adopted by religious parents who are friends of Garry, so it's like Magnus is Garry's nephew. The 2019 WKDCC is still like a pseudo – Bobby vs Garry, and it's billed as battle of thei nephews.

    7 – But still no one actually really cares about chess1 because no one wants to have a headache over studying the same boring SP again and again. Also its top players Magnus & Garry are still cheaters. But well ok maybe in rapid & blitz chess1 is picking up. (Same as our world. Fiiiine Magnus is right about keeping regular chess for rapid & blitz.) So there's still a 2022 rapid world chess1 championship, half a century after the 1972 REGULAR match of the century. This time Hans Niemann wins beating Hikaru Nakamura on tiebreaks. This time Hikaru accuses Hans, but Hans still sues both Hikaru & Magnus. Ches***m is not sued and is just as good as lichess. Hans is still considered the next Bobby Fischer / Anatoly Karpov while Wesley & Nepo are still considered the current Bobby / Anatoly.

    8 – In 2024Feb, FIDE still cancel their 2024 WKDCC, but Wesley & Nepo host a rapid chess1 championship but don't invite Magnus & Liren. Hans isn't a cheater but has still has beef with St Louis Chess Club and so doesn't play that due to scheduling conflicts, but Magnus & Hans are still going to eventually defend the, resp, classical & rapid world chess1 championships.

    9 – In general, chess doesn't have that many cheaters, cheating incidents, baseless accusations, etc and has very little corruption, discrimination, treason, politics, etc. FIDE is hailed as 1 of the cleanest sports/gaming organisations. Chess is an olympic sport. Bobby/Anatoly are FIDE officials.

    10 – Tiebreaks are settled by armageddon w/ auction rather than lower time controls, so Sergey & Fabi still lose to Wesley/Nepo in resp 2016 & 2018. But no one calls for change of tiebreaks to rapid time controls. Lol. Also, pre-arranged draws are so rare.

    11 – Sergey isn't banned because Sergey only privately supports Putin because chess doesn't make people go insane unless they the players want to stick to 1 SP only, like Garry.

    12 – Actually here, Bobby has very neutral feminist enlightened political views and is a true patriotic Jew & American ( in politics in addition to still being such a patriot in chess ) while respectfully criticising both US & Israel along side condemning Osama bin Laden / Al-Qaeda & Ismail Haniyeh / Hamas. So Bobby is still against Iraq invasion.

    13 – Most importantly, no one cares about Garry, Magnus, Hikaru or Liren. Specifically, in this world, they care less about them as compared to Wesley, Nepo, Bobby & Anatoly in our world.

    14 – Paradise.

    Ok back to reality:

    PLEASE agad it's been 4 months! 2023 USCC – Atousa almost beat Carissa Yip, the eventual winner!

    Carissa was losing most of the game. Atousa just blundered in the end.

    It's Hikaru's (rapid WFRCC) WIFE vs Wesley's (classical WFRCC) GIRLFRIEND.







  10. I thought it was going to be a ruy lopez or italian game with this title tbh

  11. If people like me didnโ€™t suck so bad, people like Carlson couldnโ€™t be rated 2,800.

  12. "as of move 23, we have a completely new game"

    you forgot "that was never played again" ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. When it's move 23 before they leave known theory, it's can't be called a "completely" new game.

  14. Nakamura has always been there around the top. He is the modern era Viktor Korchnoi

  15. Very weird stuff- Agadmator 2024๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  16. Magnus really don't like ppl named "Jan"

  17. does jan look like someone famous? i feel like ive seen his face before

  18. didnt know topson is a chess gm and pro player in dota

  19. we can all confirm and agree that Magnus Carlsen is the greatest chess player of all time.

  20. @agadmator Since you made a mistake showing the Santiago tournament standings, you have to show a game from that tournament. it will be interesting.

  21. Black's rook remained a spectator on h8 for literally the entire game

  22. Fantastic analysis. Just one correction: @ 8:35 black is actually up material.

  23. After magnus won. It's a completely new game ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  24. Wow the whole game was played before, up to move 23. Aren't the chances of that infinitesimal? Maybe not if the lines have been studied, but still… so many variations up till then

  25. Dear agadmator and chess lovers, I analyzed this game and Magnus lost the opportunity to win it game when he played 34. Rf4. The game is a dead draw now. The black king can now move to b5 (only move because Rf5 will skewer the queen). White can't do anything, can't deliver any checks to the black king. The engine says Rh4 is the best move for the white but its still a dead draw. Black can push c3, bxc3, Qxc3, Qd6+. The check can be blocked by moving the black queen to c6 or Ka5. Both ways leads to the draw. Amazing game.

  26. Thanks for the detailed analysis of relevant lines. What a complex game

  27. Am I trippin or Jan is just bald duda ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ

  28. Best player in world for 14 years and 2 months. Not bad.

  29. It's incredible how good at chess Magnus Carlsen is

  30. Some lines just don't make any sense from the black point of view. why should black even play this. If after 22 moves of theory, you only get this dismal position to work with.

  31. Magnus plays like Tal while calculating like stockfish. It's really so beautiful.

  32. Damn, first time i got confused by the opening

    I hate D4

  33. Jan Smeets is Jan Kristof Duda's Uncle, if you didnt know

  34. at 4:57 "what can you play?" knight to d7 would prevent the Agad's never never land idiocy …so you can be sure an inferior move will postulated to allow Agad to disrespect his viewers SOP. Agad moves the knight to the square needed for his trip with Alice as he does so often. This is why I stopped watching him and regret giving him another try as I do every year or so just asking to be disrespected it seems.

  35. Thanks for the game again, Agadmator! And not that is very relevant, but just because you are a good pronounciator of names: Smeets is pronounced roughly as 'Smaits' would be in English.

  36. @ agad love your channel — not at all important but for your edification: Smeets is pronounced SMATES like mates with an S in front of it. Cheers

  37. Shirov was an expert at the Botvinnik variation from the black side, but even Shirov lost some games with it because of its many complications.

  38. I am hard of hearing. Please keep the volume at max. Let us control the volume level please. I love and really enjoy all your chess videos

  39. Is it just me or… after Pe5 pinning knight yet it was mentioned about 'most analyzed position' and this NOT really being a pin as h6 attacks B, welll, I'd rather not have THAT pin as it seems the game went downhill for Black after needing to castle Q-side!

  40. I always come back to this video, simply because of he title.
