  1. Ochh. Horse was not protected. I want to attack horse!😀

  2. Me: "Why is white winning?" Levy: Cause use your eyeballs

  3. I found Queen to C7 on game #8. I know it’s not a big deal, but I’m a beginner and this is the first time I found the move on a question like this. It feels really good, and makes me motivated to play and study more. Thanks for everything you do Gotham!

  4. Hi. Levy. I love your channel. You and Agadmator are the 2 greatest chess commentators I know 🙂

    Regarding the greatest move ever plated – I think that there is a move from what is considered by many as the greatest game of Bobby Fischer , which deserves to be in top of your list. It is even greater than the game of the century against Robert Byrne's brother, Donald Byrne ! The game is a match between Bobby Fischer and and Robert Byrne of 1963 and the move is a move of Bobby Fischer in the black pieces – Bishop takes F2 Pawn. This sacrifice is so deep that none of the 2 grandmasters, who were reviewing this game for the audienece understood. Even when Robert Byrne resigned, many moves later, they thought that Bobby Fischer is lost and the actually thought that it was Bobby Fischer who resigned. You can see review of this game here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMDJebpc4oQ.

  5. Peter Leko's move vs Vladimir Kramnik in Game 14 in 2004 didn't even make the list. Very sad…

  6. Qg3 is the best move I've ever seen. Followed by Qg7. Not taking a piece, but just plonking it in front of other pieces, is always the hardest move to find.

  7. I suck at chess to be clear but on the second game I actually think I would have played this move. I paused before he read it and saw I could get a queen out of it but I would not have seen through to checkmate.

  8. Gold coins were legal tender during the gold coin game, and there were denominations as low as $2.50 and $5. So it would be no different than throwing $50 and $100 bills on the board.

  9. I found 4 at once the other ones where very popular, had seen them

  10. Extremely disappointed that the moves aren't all en passants.

  11. "whys white winning?' Levi: "cus use ur eyeballs."

  12. Can't you Just Go King d4 bishop c3 at Game #10 to Stop black from promoting with the h pawn?

  13. actually got bishop g5 with first try on 5th game, I had no idea why there but I guessed right

  14. "Unless you're the one playing…"

  15. If you made a compilation video of you saying “uhh,uhhm” from all your other videos it would be like 5 days long

  16. At game 3, after kg7, I immediately saw king takes rook and f5 fork or a3, trying to promote.

  17. Levi(Gotham chess)was the first to get ultra ego before Vegeta😂😂😂

  18. Pls next time don't bring the politics into the game.

  19. 1:05 I just love when native English speakers pronaunce Polish words, you accually made my day

  20. Quite a few of these were new to me and they blew my tiny mind. Great list, excellent commentary. I would shower you with gold coins, but I don't carry cash any more.

  21. started jumping as soon as i saw qc2 in the 7th game before you say it

  22. when a grandmaster sacks their queen, you better be ready

  23. I just came here to say this thumbnail is so cursed

  24. Do you fake accents it’s kinda weird

  25. i feel like that 2nd game move wasn’t so difficult to see but maybe i’m just that low elo lmao

  26. "You can probably take whatever drug necessary to try to find this move you probably will not find it."
    Maybe I have what it takes to be a drugged-up chess god, because before Levy even finished saying how difficult it would be to find the move I was already saying to myself "b3 is just a free queen."

  27. ok i now interupt watching your vid after game1 to leave this comment and thank you for reviving my magic attraction to chess that i had as a kid – i left chess in my early twenties rated around 2150 when kasparov lost to deep blue – chess became mechanical for me and i started playing baduk for a while- you hit something deep and beatifull in me which i thought was lost more than 30years ago-i am catapulted back in time when i started to learn and play with my grandfather -t❤️hank you so much you are the best

  28. Managed to find Bishop g5 despite being a total noob but I must admit I didn't see all the way through it, it felt nice to find though!

  29. I think the gold coin game is the best

  30. Using code geass mc would have been better than dragon ball mc

  31. "And you walk in face of danger and you laugh???????"
    Visible confusion

  32. I just love your russian accent, it's really good, I've never heard an accent that good from non native speaker and that's a little bit uncanny for me actually ._.
    But the vid is just great!)

  33. Game 2 I found it. Because whenever a chess YouTuber get crazy it is about a pawn. And this one was the only possible 😂
