  1. Hikura, didn’t even change his shirt before making this video. You are a god bro. Thanks for the content. Your motivation and skill is ranked #1 in the world. You should try for world title.

  2. Hyped for the rapid tiebreakers tonight. Rooting for Hikaru

  3. You've mentioned you don't like when the Federal government "bails out" banks. In the Silicon bank and others, the federal government did NOT bail out banks. Only other banks gave failing banks help. Customers who had FDIC accounts of $250,000 or less were covered as they are with all FDIC accounts, but investors and the banks themselves were given NO federal or taxpayer money. Back in 2009 that happened, but the prez specifically mentioned "investors and banks will be getting no money as risk is part of capitalism.

  4. Even in the video he referenced, he was drawing from a previous game he played even before that! Amazing

  5. Around 8 minutes you talk about keeping games simple because it's a match, but now that you're no longer a professional chess player it's just content with bonus cash if you perform well, so no reason not to just go all in and make the best chess you've ever wanted to play.

    This game was a banger and it was great to have the privilege of seeing it so well covered, including that queen sack to remind everyone that chess players do have a sense of humor.

  6. Wesley So is one of the best opponent of Hikaru…

  7. Holy shit. I'm playing at the Mid American Open 15 minutes away from the Chess Hall of Fame where this is being played. I was there today!

  8. can someone explain how was that a stalemate if the pony is stil jumping?
    Edit: Nvm, the pony is pinned

  9. I sack the queeeennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnmmmmm!!!!

  10. A cooler stalemate would have been Qh3+!! when both King takes and pawn takes are stalemate.

  11. Naka talks a mile a minute with humor and great insights. I'm a FIDE Master and have to pay full attention to follow everything. He's obviously a genius. I should watch at 0.75 speed.

  12. Anyone know why Hikaru harps that he's not a professional chess player?

  13. What a kabab in chess? I know it's meat in my country but what is it in chess? Kabab??

  14. heyyyyy hikaru , watched john wick chapter 4 ?

  15. Nice jab at Cristian during the interview

  16. why does the highest rated player start with white? The other way around would make more sense no?
