  1. Magnus pulls out these close end games. Everyone says they’re draws so prematurely. Magnus makes you earn your meal.

  2. Incredible mistakes from this GM to offer the game to MC…

  3. Magnus’ tide continues to go out. This is not the game of a rising star. Are these the twilight years of chess, as the primates finally concede to memorised computer lines?

  4. Why on earth didn’t White go for the fork on f7 and took the h-pawn??

  5. Why would Dennis in the endgame not grab the outside pawn by checking the king? He had like 3 or 4 opportunities to do so

  6. I don’t know if you know Antonio but some of us literally look forward to the notification you put out a new video. I know it’s not always possible but multiple videos a day is amazing. Thanks so much man!

  7. What happens if denis sacrifices the knight for the h4 pawn?

  8. Love the channel. I find the new question mark / evaluation symbols distracting. Every time they popped up it was always surprising and for a few moments I stopped listening to what you were saying. If you are still considering whether to keep them or remove them, I'd vote for not having the symbols at all.

  9. The year is 2085:

    And Alireza has been spotted in a bar in Maldives playing a tournament with some drunk Grandmasters, so that he can farm enough ELO points to qualify for the candidates.

  10. What is the electronic item on their lap?

  11. Chess content creators need to be giving Magnus a certain percentage from the money they making from YouTube 😂

  12. 6:58 Why didn't white play Knight F7 to fork king and H6 pawn and than take that pawn?

  13. idk years and years i watch your all videos and this question mark + exellent move !! marks will be nice improvment my m8 good luck
    Love u Keep doing it AGAD !!

  14. The beginning of the end game, such a magnificent position for them both, white with the advantage.

  15. So what are the ? and ?!'s ? Its supposed to communicate something inexplicable, or something expletive?

  16. Not a fan of these engine question marks at all

  17. Why did Khismatullin not eliminate the h pawn the first chance he got? The Nf7 fork is elementary. Does the knight get trapped after Ng8?

  18. I love how Magnus is really good at being Magnus Carlsen

  19. bizzarrely weak play in the ending by Denis

  20. Pls show the good and brilliant move symbols for the moves

  21. He had all the chance in the world to get the pawn. Why he didn't get it

  22. I'm surprised this game wasn't considered a 'snoozefest'.

  23. Don't know about that, but I am sure that he will remain The Ultimate Asshole.

  24. Welcome to our country!O‘zbekistonga xush kelibsiz!

  25. Wow, have you seen the latest game of Khisma?
    Khisma what?
    Kiss ma tullin

  26. 6:44 Why dont white fork the king and h pawn? I thought that was the point of trading on the h file?EDIT: Nevermind, knight would be trapped by the black king afterwards.

  27. 0:50 Magnust wears traditional, but the locals don't 😀

  28. Ar 7:09, black will play Kf8, then whatever white plays, Kg7 will trap the knight.
