  1. I did not actually "find it", when you gave me a few seconds to win the game for Jeffrey lol. You said "go ahead and try to find" and like a straight up monkey ape chimpanzee, I blurted out "its the same fuckin thing". 0 calculations done, I would have accepted being wrong (i almost always am 99% of the time). I feel so proud right now.

  2. 8. Bg5 was played in 2010 already by Bobarykin against Khantuev. 10. e4 is a new game 29. Raf1 instead of Qxb5 is a good alternative Nxd5 exd5 Qg4 (Qxd5? Nh4!! and black is in a losing position)

    Bobarykin – Khantuev

  3. My man stops, lets the dog in, and hops right back in to a complex chess game without a pause…this guy is crazy smart, and super prepared.

  4. The way you explain possible moves is excellent And it's teaching….

    I have improved so much inches from listening to you when you explain the games like this….

    A million thank you….

  5. I almost made it at the end, i thought about the same move with rook, but then Knight to G5, he caps the rook, then Knight to F7 and White Knight cant be taken by king coz rooks pins there, he moves with Black King and Knight to D8 – and then he plays with Knight and Rook against one Rook on black side. Maybe i had a different view on this end, well… I watch you only for three days so i guess thats a progress ':D

  6. Title made it clear that controlled centre of caruana isn't going to work in this game, and the Chinese is gonna win.

  7. Chess Master 9000 shoutout! bringing me back to the late 90's before my nearly two-decade hiatus from chess
