  1. Finally,we can say with 100% certainity that Nepo is a NOT a match for Magnus. Magnus is different level.

  2. so amusing how black's later pawn expansion forces resignation while white's initial, expected expansion was so "easily" nullified.

  3. You spend your life studying chess theory then this happens to you.😂

  4. I think Nepo castling was too casual. If he played d5 instead, it would disrupt black’s plan and at least guarantee a space advantage. Once Magnus was able to get in d5 himself, I think he equalized. Tactically the e-file isn’t dangerous for black because of the Nf8-Ne6 maneuver Carlsen played.

  5. Nic (J Bruce Feynman Niccolo P. Bentulan) says:

    2nd any #9LX #chess9LX ? #suggestion

    Nepo is the best overall as of 2023Apr30 in an equal combination of
    -classical chess,
    -rapid chess,
    -classical 9LX &
    -rapid 9LX

    Being 2nd in

    -2023 classical WCC (only by rapid)
    -2022 rapid WFRCC,
    -2021 classical & rapid WCCs
    -2019 classical WFRCC score

    And 14th in 2022 rapid WCC (ahead of Hikaru, Wesley So, Liren)

    That's right: Nepo AND NOT MAGNUS is the top 2 classical 9LX player behind Wesley So!

    – This is because Nepo's score is higher than Magnus'. Not just for a weighted average of the classical & rapid portions but even for both the classical & rapid portions individually. Nepo lost only 3x to Wesley So while Magnus lost 4x.

    – Magnus & Nepo played the same opponents – Wesley So & Fabi. Both beat Fabi. Both lost to Wesley So. Nepo was just unfortunate to face Wesley So 1st. Imagine if the pairings were reversed or they played a double knockout.

    Now let's take a look at the top1 of each.

    -2023 classical WCC – Liren never even played 9LX ? ( kTGBSAR-lxE )
    -2022 rapid WFRCC – Hikaru is lower in rank than Nepo in both classical chess candidates & classical 9LX and never won a classical 9LX game
    -2021 classical WCC – Magnus sucks at 9LX and even cheated Nepo here
    -2022 rapid WCC – Both Magnus & Hikaru suck at classical 9LX
    -2019 classical WFRCC – Wesley So scored -2 in candidates.
    -2021 rapid WCC – Nepo beat Nodirbek in 2022 rapid WFRCC via Magnus

    I am Filipino / Filipina / Philippine, love 9LX and hate chess, but there is no shame in admitting that treating these 4 titles equally Nepo is the best overall.

    -Au contraire there is actually arrogance rather than shame because Nepo is the top 2 in classical 9LX behind Wesley So and ahead of Magnus. Lol.

    -And I know Bobby Fischer would value the classical WFRCC far more than all of the rapid WCC, rapid WFRCC & classical WCC combined and thus would consider Wesley So the 'real' world champion for 2019Nov – 2023Mar over Hikaru rapid WFRCC & Magnus classical WCC, rapid WCC, blitz WCC (and MVL blitz WCC & Nodirbek rapid WCC).

    But Nepo Vs Wesley So in Bobby's opinion? Ummm…well let's say unresolved. Hehehe. After all Wesley So reached 2800, but Nepo is peaking.

    2023Aug Update : Oh, there's a 2024 WFRCC. If it's classical, then we might be able to settle Wesley So Vs Nepo.







    P.S. Please help get Wesley So on Lex Fridman's podcast :


    Pablo Mercado : So what is your advice to the Filipino chess players?

    Bobby Fischer : My advice is to give up chess and take up Fischer Random.

    – 2004Oct11, 15 years before Wesley So became the inaugural WFRCC in CLASSICAL time controls.

  6. Nic (J Bruce Feynman Niccolo P. Bentulan) says:

    1st – World Cup Round 2 – Wesley So's girlfriend Carissa Yip as black beats chinese grandmaster xue zhao.

    (3 Chinese descent in 1 sentence. Lol.)


    2nd – World Cup Round 1 – Argentina gets zugzwang by Wesley So…

    …'s girlfriend Carissa Yip

    Campos, Maria Jose (2212)

    Wesley So's girlfriend Yip, Carissa (2369)


    3rd – Alice Lee beat Wesley So…

    …'s girlfriend Carissa Yip in 2023 USCC girls juniors.

    (3 Chinese descent in 1 sentence.)


    Carissa is underperforming and even lost to a WGM because Carissa is distracted by a secret relationship with Wesley So that started in the 2022 Olympiad. Look at Carissa's X header.

    Notice both of them are defending champions but then underperform in their 1st tournaments after the Olympiad.

    Carissa Yip

    2021 USCC women's – winner

    2022 USCC girls juniors – didn't play but would've easily won if not for playing in 2022 USCC juniors instead

    2023 USCC girls juniors – only 3rd place (should be 2nd minimum)

    Wesley So

    2019 classical WFRCC – winner

    2021 9LX – 2nd place

    2021 USCC – winner

    2022 9LX – only 5th place

    2022 USCC – only 5th-6th place

    2022 rapid WFRCC – only 6th place (should be 4th minimum; also for other 2)

    4th – Timestamps

    Why not let viewers make timestamps in comments then you can pin the best timestamp comment and copy the timestamps to the video description?


    5th – Magnus cheats Anish

    in 2023 superbet blitz round 7 –> 3:22:36 in 8gw7XDq87C4


    6th – Philippine women's chess – 2022 blitz WCC


    WGM Janelle Frayna, the 1st and only Philippine WGM, upset Georgian GM (really GM not just WGM) Bella Khotenashvili at the 2022 world blitz.

    There's a 13-move UNDERPROMOTION puzzle here.

    [Variant "From Position"]

    [FEN "6k1/6b1/1p1P3p/6pP/3pPpP1/p2NqP2/6K1/5Q2"]

    1. Qd1 a2 2. Qb3+ Kf8 3. d7 Qe2+ 4. Nf2 Ke7 5. Qd5 Kd8 6. Qe6 Bf6 7. Qe8+ Kc7 8. Qc8+ Kd6 9. e5+ Qxe5 10. d8=R+ Bxd8 11. Qxd8+ Kc6 12. Qa8+ Kb5 13. Qxa2

    For some reason none of the Philippine channels except Kelvinllovejr even cover this game. LOL. But Janelle did cover the game where e drew against Nemo, so maybe Janelle will cover this game later on.

    Later in 2023 Bella had a stupid choice for favourite world champion – Magnus Carlsen over Wesley So & Bobby Fischer.


    So good thing Janelle had beaten Bella.

    P.S. Please help get Wesley So on Lex Fridman's podcast. See





  7. Magnus: We don't need no stinkin' development

  8. Wow, what a surprise opening. I can hear Magnus saying, 'How dare you, Nepo…'.

  9. Magnus is trolling Jan two times in one game, tells you the amount of butchering Nepo has to suffer from a goat, no pun intended.

  10. Holy Crap! For the first time ever I got the pause the video right!

  11. Anyway Nepo still was awarded FM title by FIDE

  12. Magnus demonstrating (again!) why he is widely considered the GOAT. Brilliant speed chess.

  13. I didn't even play the knight retreat to its original square move and my chess instructor still kicked me out!

  14. Geez…, Magnus didn't even attack. All he did was play elite defense and won the game.

  15. Magnus crushed Nepo yesterday. Extremely impressive.

  16. He is the game, literally no one else plays like him. He is the Franz Liszt of chess.

  17. 8:44 LMAO " it's resigns time" 😂 ouch what a loss for nepo

  18. Agadmator: both these players played with incredible accuracy!
    Magnus on turn 2: I’m about to end this man’s whole career…

  19. why Ian even join just to be embarassed relative to his classical reputation.

  20. Double score. No improvement for Nepo after the world championship.

  21. I just woke up and found this, and now my whole day is made! 🤠

  22. Can we all agree that Magnus is the grandmaster of grandmasters.

  23. magnus just taunts nepo all the time 😂😂

  24. imagine telling magnus to never play chess again

  25. Me: play Ng8
    coach: what the fuck were you thinking
    Magnus: plays Ng8
    coach: an objectively dubious but practically brilliant move that throws the opponent completely off guard

  26. i really hope ian wins this world championship he deserves one

  27. This man is unstoppable.. .. legend of the legends MAG

  28. To say Magnus completely bamboozled Nepo doesn't cover it. Going 'off-piste' is an age-old method to more easily beat weaker players…. quite scary that Magnus chooses to do it against Super GMs.

  29. That's even more devastating for Ian. Yes, you've lost the game at move 28, but your opponent only had 26 moves… can't even wrap my head around it.

  30. I am speechless after seeing the astonishing Queen move by Magnus, how the hell on earth a person can find that in such less time.

  31. I'd like if you had rapidly shown Magnus employing the Botez gambit against Nepomniachtchi.

  32. this is not even premium Magnus, his soul is not even in the game, in this matches again Ian, Magnus was mouse slip, forgot about his time left, and last he forgot that the night can capture his queen, botez gambit accepted.

    Magnus was not focus at all, it seems he just play the game because he has to. His face was so relieved when the matches ended even though the gap score is so big. He clearly not in the mood to play.

  33. Add evaluation bar beside to explain good y white or black advantage more
