  1. Ah! This is Beauty. Beauty+Brilliance, with dash of madness in Chess. What a game. What a commentary. Gracias.

  2. You must take your opponent to a deep forest where 2 + 2 = 5 [Tal]

  3. The camera is almost as good as the game!💪👏👏

  4. Man, this game is cruel in the triple sacrifice that its just so good not to share.

  5. Yes, please on the next Tal game you proposed to cover! This one was amazing. 👍

  6. Great find and video! Enjoyed it very much🥳 Congratulations with new camera and hope you are well

  7. Funny enough I watched arcadian but didn’t think the game was spectacular, so I didn’t bother searching it up

  8. What an amazing game!!! Thanks Agad!!!

  9. "Complete madness… so obviously that's what Tal had in mind."

  10. I watch the videos for the history and analysis but the recap at the end of the game is still very nice to see

  11. Makes you wonder whether he even saw that far ahead or just sacrificed based on intuition and then just hoped for the best

  12. We should see more Koblens games, he seems like a solid dude

  13. I really enjoyed the story and the game as well. Thank you Agadmator

  14. It is a pure crazy game. It could have been played by computers – the position is so complex
    I love how Tal has several hanging pieces during the whole game but still is in control, he seems not to worry.
    This game is for the ages

  15. 'Tal Considered This His Best Game'', could you at lease say which game it is so that we can source it elsewhere? Surely you have not turned that mean as not to disclose which game it is.

  16. Meanwhile this was the first ever Tal game which I had seen
    It was shown by Chesstalk and he has covered many games so if you would have watched it their you would have got it their easily

  17. ''Tal Considered This His Best Game'' another 'members only', so much for those who promoted the channel in the very early days.

  18. tal was 100000 more legend than boring carlsen has ever been!

  19. Speaking about Mr Tal, I'm pretty sure you'd enjoy covering this beauty: Gedeon Barcza vs Mikhail Tal (1971) #suggestion

  20. How did you manage to extract the moves of the game from the film (Arcadian — I haven't seen it, not subscribed to Netflix)?

  21. Nobody watches "only for moves". Stop this madness.

  22. …wer aus der Geschichte nichts gelernt hat ist dazu verdummt, sie zu wiederholen…

  23. We all watch your videos to enjoy the content and the commentary. Those who say they only want to watch the moves are missing out on the heart and soul of this channel. And none of them will ever know why B4 is the strongest move in any position. Keep doing what you're doing because you're doing great.

  24. where the fuck is Medo the chess dog?

  25. Thank you for showing these Tal games, you are the best chess channel on youtube 🙂

  26. I saw this game a few days back, i fell in love with how tal played. Magician❤

  27. Hi Agad, I am not able to understand one thing. Please help me comprehend. How tf every time Tal does 'that' that looks just moving random pieces to my untrained eyes and after the storm is settled, he is up 1 pawn in a completely winning king-pawn endgame?

  28. Just an attacking masterpiece as usual after a muddling middlegame, he smoothly simplified into a winning King and Pawn endgame.

  29. And it is games like this that gave Misha his nickname of Magician of Riga. Thanks for sharing! I've been a Tal fan since the 60s and had not seen this game either.

  30. Nic Cage is now a legend in the Chess world as well!

  31. I feel like everytime I watch an Agadmator video, his plushy collection in the back just gets bigger and bigger

  32. this channel beats most of the garbage on Free TV, Brilliant find.
