  1. Ben Finegold the other day featured a game where white had the choice between Ke2# vs. O-O-O# and either of those has got to be more satisfying than smothered mate

  2. Wrong, the smoothest mate is with an en passant.

  3. nothing is more sastifying then en pasant mate

  4. Wouldn't the most famous move in chess history be Frank Marshall's "gold coins" queen sac?

  5. I thought the most recent chess rule was they decided you could not do a forward castle, as in e8=R followed by O-O-O-O-O-O-O

  6. Imagine Hans Neimann doing this. I can already see his answers.

    Q1: Is king safety the most important?
    Hans: Chess speaks for itself.
    Q2: What is more valuable, bishop or knight?
    Hans: Chess speaks for itself.
    Q3: What opening do you recommend for each color?
    Hans: Chess speaks for itself.
    Q4: Does chess speak for itself?
    Hans: Chess speaks for itself.

  8. This Levy guy seems to know a lot about chess, he might be 300 elo some day

  9. Giveaway Chess aka Suicide Chess where you purposely try to lose as many pieces as possible and try to have your last piece taken

  10. I don't know if it will go down as the most famous chess move, but Ding Liren Rg6 was incredible and won him the world championship.

  11. "then i lost to a bunch of nine year olds" relatable

  12. Nah most satisfying mate is en passant mate.

  13. did he stare in the camera for a second before talking

  14. Off topic, but this shirt is super dope!!

  15. I’m 35, my chess homie is 32, we meet up every Sunday at noon at a public park and play for a couple of hours. It’s so pleasant

  16. Pffff smothered mate is the most satisfying? What about castling mate? Or En Passant mate?
