  1. Simon Williams plays chess the way we dream to be poets. This is his gift – on the board he is how I want to be in life – teaching that, with reasonable risk, there is chance for more beauty, mirth and glory!

  2. Love Simon. Just a good egg in general and an extremely entertaining dude

  3. 2:20 so how is Ba5 when 2 moves later her position is resignable?

  4. Qd4 instead of Qh4 – will it not be much better for black? You give back material but get back, aren't you?

  5. What a pleasure to be alive to witness a new wild chess opening!

  6. You are a legend for posting this game Antonio, thank you! Was a real beauty

  7. going to be a tough game for simon….. ends up being a miniature… seems legit

  8. Queen's gambit declined, Slav defence, Exchange variation, Ginger attack.. this could really suit Simon's self-mocking personality.. he even calls himself GingerGM, why not call a chess vatiation like that

  9. "Simon was pushing the h pawn before AlphaZero made this cool…"- All I needed to hear about Simon the OG

  10. should've just accepted the greek gift and gone Kg6 and try to survive, haha

  11. The Simon Attack
    The Williams Variation
    The Ginger Gambit (guess it doesn't work because there wasn't really a gambit but it sounds good)

  12. This really looks like a Morphy or Anderssen game.

  13. Absolutely brilliant 😀👍. The Simon is okay as long as it not turns into a “ Simon says”

  14. Years ago I loved Mato channel and didn't watch many of your videos. Now I watch one of your analysis almost everyday.
    I'm a bit drunk and wanted to let you know this!

  15. Great game Simon! I will definitely try that, though it might not work as well. Brilliant, Thanks Agad!

  16. considering chess knowledge inflation, this game should be put on par to games such as the opera game

  17. Very beautiful game…

    Harry (h pawn) and Garry(g pawn) was chillin' the whole time too!


  18. What does the engine do against the Simon line?

  19. The opening is the boor attack, invented by FM Michael Boor I believe
