  1. O cara รฉ muito gente boa e humilde.

  2. Dude really remember the move by the exact date nerd hikaru

  3. They're too committed to SBMM to give us what we all really want… meanwhile I end up playing against people dropping 90 kills against my team, and our top fragger has 45

  4. Was he joking at 05:50 when he talks about chess being dumbed down, and people not using proper terminology?

  5. I wouldn't be mad to get a game against a GM

  6. Hikaru is a ray of sunshine and hilarious. Hikaru and Daniel are the only two in the chess world elite that arenโ€™t snooze fests. Keep up the awesome content!

  7. I have learned more from this video than anything else

  8. Can you put the chat on the screen please?

  9. Awesomw video, this helps me a lot in understanding….. mating latterna lol

  10. First time commenting senpai….. โคtoo op…..

  11. Hikaru missed a mate in one at 14.56 with Qg7. Then he missed it again a few seconds later when he 'explained' the position!

  12. Bro's bullying that 500 elo ๐Ÿ’€

  13. "Line up the classic double stack in honor of Dave Thomas…" ๐Ÿ˜‚

  14. 28minutes in and I feel stronger already
    Also, him remembering the games where he faces the opening situations was just baffling

  15. Loved that blitz-styled opening course. Game after game of high-octane knowledge! GGs

  16. can someone explain why he said he lose in 16 move to the female germany GM? the queen can block the checkmate right?i mean at least the game still going since black doesnt have queen too?

  17. Too busy to have a kid? You're smart on the board but blunder in life. You'll regret not having children later. You could have created the world's next best chess player.

  18. wtf, who this guy is teaching? Can't understand sht when you teach like this, fk this garbage

  19. Ik it's expected of a GM but it's somewhat insane to me how he knows which squares he occupies at all times

  20. Hikaru thinks L Rozman is an idiotic influencer?

  21. Canโ€™t help but constantly zone out and listen to Hikaruโ€™s life stories and then end up 10 moves deeper into the position with no idea how it got there

  22. Me playing the mieses not knowing with white and seeing it is a bad midgame for me

  23. What if someone kidnapped you hikaru and you passed out, then when you woke up you notice that you're not the only one. There are many other players too including Magnus ( your greatest rival) with a total of 50 chess players (IM, GM) from high to low rank. And someone appeared with a mask and made you guys play chess and whoever losses gets killed and the one who's gonna Win alone will be sent back to the outside world along with 1M dollars. Now the question is….Would you survive?

  24. Anyone know the opening he uses for the black pieces?

  25. The events that start at 1:05:23 is hilarious, he just doesn't want you to make your point!

  26. "C4 is a good move", proceeds to obliterate the opponent in the next 10 moves

  27. I think this is one of the first youtube videos where I've actually used the slow down function. Great video!

  28. I wish I had such good memory. I don't know what I've been doing yesterday.

  29. The Stafford Gambit ! Obviously by the time you get good at it… you will begin losing because of it. As at a high level it is a very 'dubious' opening. ๐Ÿ˜žOn the other hand it is fun when it does work! ๐Ÿ™‚ Depends on your goals, fun or winning.

  30. Alternate tittle: how to choose like your first 3 moves in a potentially 50+ move game those 3 moves kinda able to make or break you

  31. I'm kind of a beginner at chess, just wondering @1:25:57, shouldn't black play f6 to block the check instead of moving the king to g8? I can see black is losing anyways, but is it a better way to defend or is there something I'm not seeing?

  32. Good morning GM, why on minute 44:45 you took with the pawn to the right when "we should take to the left in that space of the board" and not took with the queen maybe?

  33. "He is much stronger, not cheating, but stronger" GM Hikaru Nakamura ELO 999999

  34. at 34:10 you could have sacrificed the queeeeennnn ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข
