  1. Rxe2; Qxe8+ Qxe8 (this is forced); Kxe2 (attacking the knight) and white has two rook and a bishop against a queen and a knight. Ok black is up a pawn but this doesn't look like a clearly winning position to me, so going for the draw by repetition is certainly the right alley to take.

  2. 8:48 can't we do Qxe3? There is no way white can prevent Qg1 RXg1 Nf2 checkmate or if white captures the knight then we can deliver qe4 kg1qg2 checkmate

  3. 8:28 "At work or sitting at the airport" ???? Agamator, I am always a the bar or the library talking to my friends! What is this about work and airport? That does not compute!!!

  4. how about queen takes on e3, bishop takes d2, queen g1 check, rook takes g1 and knight f2 mate.

  5. On the challenge but before the Knight moved to G3 (forcing the King to H1) I saw the move QxE3. If the bishop takes the rook, Knight to H3 double check. KIng to H1 only legal move and then Q to G1 RxG1 only legal move then knight back to f2 for a nice smothered mate. Even if the rook is not taken there seems to be no defense against Knight to G3 once the Queen is on E3. If RxF2 then the Queen takes the rook forcing king to h1, Rook to D1 mate.
    Maybe I'm missing something but if so I can't se it.

    Edit: Read though comments. White has the queen sac QxE8 with check followed by bishop taking the rook. My bad. However, unless I'm missing something again on the challenge after Knight to G3 (forcing the King to H1) the queen sac also defends against RxG2 since black is forced to take the white queen, giving the white king time to take the black rook. Now if the queen returns to G4 the white king also gobbles up the knight. So it would seem Magnus made right choice to draw after all.

  6. Very un-Magnus like. But at this point, Carlson is manufacturing how own goals in his mind (his quest for 2900 being the best example). Imagine being the beat in the world at something and SO MUCH BETTER than everyone else that being World Champion isn’t enough to hold your attention anymore. This is why I have Magnus as the greatest player of all time. I’m an era when their are more super GMs than ever before, The gal between Magnus and the field is wider than just about any other time. Fischer played above everyone for a year or two before it broke him. Magnus has been head and shoulders above everyone for a decade.

  7. Since the final is now Nepo VS Carlsen, we can hope for a double russian victory in the times we are living in 😁

  8. Agadmator, thanks for showing the ‘proper’ end of this game which Magnus ‘didn’t need’ to do himself….

  9. People: "Magnus, why didn't you go for the win in a winning position?"
    Magnus: "I am Le Tired."

  10. As always a nice video and Black has a smothered mate if white captures the rook on D2.. 1. …Queen takes e3 2. Bishop takes rook on D2, Queen G1+, Rookf1 takes Queen, Knight F2 checkmate xD Keep up your great vids Agamator, cheers!

  11. At the moment when 3 fold repition draw was accepted.

    Black can go for Qe3 when white king is on Kh1 and black knight on Nh3

    Which will give a force mate by Qg1+ and Nf2# Smothered or any other.

    It was in my suggestion a force mate.

  12. When white moves to c4, his second move, wouldn’t a lot of people just take that free pawn? What’s his play if the person does that, rather than playing e6 as magnus did?

  13. For the pause the video moment, what if white plays Qxe8+? Black's forced to accept the queen, then white scoops the other rook with Kxg2? If Qe4+ after that, white can play Kxh3 grabbing the knight, making it NG two rooks and a bishop against a queen with 4 pawns each.

  14. Agadmator There is even a nicer continuation when the knight is on f2! Queen captures pawn on e3 pinning the white king and threathining a nasty mating pattern! Knight to h3 unleashing at double check from both the Knight and the Queeen. White Bishop can not capture the Queen since white King has to attend to check from Knight as well. King moves to h1(only move, or give up the Rook which leads to same mate anyways). Now the beauty! Queen to g1+ Rook is forced to capture the Queen, and now the Rook restricts the movement of the King! Now Knight to f2+ and checkmate! Only way to avoid this sequence is for white to give upmhis Queen in first response by capturing Rook on e8+, and black Queen captures White Queen on e8 and the game continues with black having 2 Rooks and a bishop and 4 Pawns, while white has a Queen, a Knight, and 5 Pawns.

  15. when you said "ruined by the times we live in" I thought you were talking about the start of world war III
