  1. Counterplayless!! Coining new terms in chess! Love it.

  2. Don't forget to treat us with some Daily Rapid Action on Lichess. Is cool to watch you through all the thought process and the ups & downs

  3. Wow. Poor Mr. Gulbrandsen got smacked around like a student in this one. What a brilliant game!

  4. In the documentary "Magnus", MC says he "just sees the right move". Sort of like Michelangelo saying, "I just see what parts of the marble need to be removed to make the sculpture".

  5. I think majority of us will agree that most of Magnus' opponents are usually left COUNTERPLAYLESS😄😄….pure genius!

  6. 'and now you realise the horror of what you have done' 😂😂😅

  7. Never really noticed the toy store in the background 🙂

  8. In a parallel universe where 9LX is standard chess:

    1 – People are praising Wesley So, Ian Nepomniachtchi, Bobby Fischer & Anatoly Karpov. Agadmator & Levy are talking about Wesley & Nepo all day long.

    2 – Switch Bobby & Garry dates of birth. (Bobby's last name here is probably Nemenyi.) Meanwhile Garry Kasparov invented something strange called 'chess1' aka 'Kasparov Deterministic' where you have only 1 SP. Garry quits the 1975 classical WCC Vs Anatoly Karpov, is arrested in Russia (instead of Japan), immigrates to Iceland and dies in 2008. 1975 is not a big loss. In fact, it's better because Bobby Fischer takes over. 1978 is Bobby vs Anatoly match of the century in Baguio, the Philippines! Idk what happens in 1981, but then 1984 Eugene Torre wins the candidates and faces Anatoly/Bobby! In 1976, I guess Eugene still beats Anatoly. Either Anatoly or Bobby. (Trivia: In our world, Eugene almost beat Bobby in 1992.)

    3 – Bobby is still alive in 2024. Bobby, Anatoly, Sergey Karjakin, Wesley, Nepo are on Lex Fridman's podcast while Magnus, Garry & Hikaru aren't.

    4 – In the 2019 inaugural world Kasparov Deterministic chess championship (WKDCC), Magnus beats Wesley in 3 classical chess1 games in a row in but no one cares. Fabi is still the top 4 in the 2019 world chess1 championship but the top3 is now Liren. Nepo has never played a chess1 game, just as in our world Liren has never played a recorded 9LX game before 2024Feb.

    5 – Wesley/Nepo doesn't quit the 2023 classical WCC. Nepo/Wesley wins 2022 candidates and no one cares about Liren. Wesley So Vs Ian Nepomniachtchi is the biggest rivalry in chess, far exceeding as well as succeeding the next biggest rivalry Bobby Fischer vs Anatoly Karpov, like Better Call Saul to Breaking Bad. Wesley, & Nepo are both considered GOATs along with Bobby & Anatoly. There's no distinction between GOAT & MTOAT. There's a slight bias towards Wesley because Wesley is Bobby's nephew.

    6 – Chess' popularity in the Philippines & Norway are inverted.

    In our world, Bobby had radio interviews in the Philippines. In this world, Garry has radio interviews in Norway.

    Then Prospero Pichay Jr is imprisoned and the Philippine chess federation is free from corruption. But Wesley is still American. Huhuhu. Oh, in this reality, Magnus' parents are evil and then Magnus gets adopted by religious parents who are friends of Garry, so it's like Magnus is Garry's nephew. The 2019 WKDCC is still like a pseudo – Bobby vs Garry, and it's billed as battle of thei nephews.

    7 – But still no one actually really cares about chess1 because no one wants to have a headache over studying the same boring SP again and again. Also its top players Magnus & Garry are still cheaters. But well ok maybe in rapid & blitz chess1 is picking up. (Same as our world. Fiiiine Magnus is right about keeping regular chess for rapid & blitz.) So there's still a 2022 rapid world chess1 championship, half a century after the 1972 REGULAR match of the century. This time Hans Niemann wins beating Hikaru Nakamura on tiebreaks. This time Hikaru accuses Hans, but Hans still sues both Hikaru & Magnus. Ches***m is not sued and is just as good as lichess. Hans is still considered the next Bobby Fischer / Anatoly Karpov while Wesley & Nepo are still considered the current Bobby / Anatoly.

    8 – In 2024Feb, FIDE still cancel their 2024 WKDCC, but Wesley & Nepo host a rapid chess1 championship but don't invite Magnus & Liren. Hans isn't a cheater but has still has beef with St Louis Chess Club and so doesn't play that due to scheduling conflicts, but Magnus & Hans are still going to eventually defend the, resp, classical & rapid world chess1 championships.

    9 – In general, chess doesn't have that many cheaters, cheating incidents, baseless accusations, etc and has very little corruption, discrimination, treason, politics, etc. FIDE is hailed as 1 of the cleanest sports/gaming organisations. Chess is an olympic sport. Bobby/Anatoly are FIDE officials.

    10 – Tiebreaks are settled by armageddon w/ auction rather than lower time controls, so Sergey & Fabi still lose to Wesley/Nepo in resp 2016 & 2018. But no one calls for change of tiebreaks to rapid time controls. Lol. Also, pre-arranged draws are so rare.

    11 – Sergey isn't banned because Sergey only privately supports Putin because chess doesn't make people go insane unless they the players want to stick to 1 SP only, like Garry.

    12 – Actually here, Bobby has very neutral feminist enlightened political views and is a true patriotic Jew & American ( in politics in addition to still being such a patriot in chess ) while respectfully criticising both US & Israel along side condemning Osama bin Laden / Al-Qaeda & Ismail Haniyeh / Hamas. So Bobby is still against Iraq invasion.

    13 – Most importantly, no one cares about Garry, Magnus, Hikaru or Liren. Specifically, in this world, they care less about them as compared to Wesley, Nepo, Bobby & Anatoly in our world.

    14 – Paradise.

    Ok back to reality:

    PLEASE agad it's been 4 months! 2023 USCC – Atousa almost beat Carissa Yip, the eventual winner!

    Carissa was losing most of the game. Atousa just blundered in the end.

    It's Hikaru's WIFE vs Wesley's GIRLFRIEND.







  9. 2nd comment: Hans Niemann = next Bobby Fischer

    – Wesley So = current Bobby Fischer

    – Bobby Fischer's ghost = old Bobby Fischer

    – Beth Harmon = Bobby Fischer in another universe

    Each of these 4 'is a prodigy, had a rather dark childhood and is American'.

    Speaking of Wesley So

    Hikaru's (the rapid WFRCC) wife almost beat Wesley So's (the classical WFRCC) girlfriend!

    2023 USCC – Indeed Carissa Yip won and thanked Wesley So as her secret second in the 2023 USCC closing ceremony speech.

    But in Carissa vs Atousa, Carissa was losing most of the game. Atousa just blundered in the end.

    move 54 for black is an 8-move equality puzzle

    it's so sharp

  10. So bad that your technology do not allow to show the evaluation bar on the video. Goat chess shows it in his videos but I do not know what technology does he have access to, probably some stock fish or the like. It will allow to see more clear every move potential and impact on the game.

  11. Why I feel like I have seen this already in your channel before

  12. 9:26 i know the game is already lost for Black, but that pawn to C5 move was one of the worst ive ever seen on this channel lol

  13. Some Great moves Queen takes a7 was an incredible brilliant idea an average player would definitely not think of Magnus showing his Chess ingenuity even at this young age Clever little fella 😅

  14. I was able to solve the "pause the video" moment in 11 seconds to be honest, I was looking for weird ways to sacrifice some material and then suddenly Rxa7 rang a bell, I am proud of myself.

  15. What age Magnus do you all think you could defeat? I'm going 6 1/2.

  16. Just because of you .. I have improved my game from 1200 to 1800 by learning how to calculate positions and studying the opening variations in 1.5 year…..

  17. The c8 square was a problem in this game which Magnus capitalized on, just as the piece that starts on c8 is always a problem for black in this defence.

  18. counterplayless…11 year old Magnus inspiring Agad to invent new words

  19. When was grenke discontinued, because i literally forgot that grenke used to exist 😅

  20. What a crazy game. This kid should aim for being a world champion in the future. Hope he becomes one of the most successful Player of all time.

  21. Why do you say something "like" b4 to chase away the Queen? What else is like b4? I'm not a titled chess player, but isn't every move considered unique? I mean there is b4 and there is not b4. No???

  22. It was worth it, just looking at that thumbnail

  23. Wow! That game looked pretty even until the Horse, on cue, wrecked the day!

  24. Man, the commentary about the “what if” scenarios is annoying as hell. Just stick to the actual game. Terrible video.

  25. I saw the answer before I looked for the game analysis video but man… I must say. This is just incredible.

  26. You're too honest. Your German roots are showing. Mein lieber Herr!

  27. I watch this every few weeks or so, I never get tired of young magnus' brilliance!

  28. Not gonna name any names.Slow Lane DYamil N00b…
