  1. I’m sort of new in the game of chess, but why isn’t it a stalemate if the king isn’t in check, but has nowhere to move?

  2. He could've got out of that one. Moving his pawn in-between the other 2 pawns, which would give the king space to move?

  3. Is there a gotham chess video covering this game?

  4. Would be nice if somebody in the comment section told who won the match. People like me are just here because we know they're both great but don't know shit about chess.

  5. People asking why this isn't a draw really don't understand chess. Dude resigned cuz he knew he couldn't do anything with the moves available on the board. It was check mate in so many turns and they both knew it.

  6. Accept Jesus now he's coming he's the son of god accept Jesus now

  7. can someone explain the exact reason he won at the end? i almost understand it but i’m missing something here

  8. I still don’t understand, why didn’t Hikaru move the Rook to B2 at 7:18 it could have been check to Magnus

  9. Hikaru only lost as he couldn't promote the entire game

  10. When black played 47. f5 Forced was rook h8 check king g7 queen to c3 check
    Queen f6 rook g8 check king has no choice but to capture rook and the black queen falls.

  11. 5:16 Rc1!! Great move that turns the situation completely around: now Nakamura has to defend.

  12. Am i insane or is another hikaru sitting right behing magnus

  13. At 2:40 Hikaru blunders massively even Magnus raised his eyebrows like i expect better from u bro lol

  14. People keep talking about coughing and I'm so focused i didn't even hear it 🤌

  15. Can anyone tell me why he holds the captured pieces? 4:57, sorry I don't know anything about chess

  16. he played normally he should knockout earlier😂

  17. They are like the same person but different ethnicity. It is like Magnus multiverse.

  18. Can someone tell me what would happen if they continue. How would it be a checkmate if they continued

  19. The fact that yall notice coughs so much is your own schizophrenic problem

  20. I don't know why Hikaru didn't take the free pawn of B4 by the rook at 4:19 this pawn which killed him at the end 😂

  21. Bedava piyon veriyon be kardeşim kamil misin
