  1. What if we punished players for draws? maybe force them to do a funny dance/drink a cockroach milkshake/etc

  2. Its funny how people have completely forgotten that the current "chess world champion" is not in that room.

  3. drinking too much alcohol also causes symptoms similar to food poisoning. Partying with dubov in secret?

  4. Why did Prag did not check Cxd2 + vs. Qf6? Looks like he lost a tempo and a free pawn ?

  5. from the opening we were sure it would be exciting, but entering the middle we knew it was headed for a draw..

  6. After 3:48 is why bg4 from black side is not played as it leads to the variation where magnus have isolated pawn which can be easily targeted

  7. Magnus really enjoys playing with prag, these 2 games feel like legend nurturing future legends…

  8. Pre-match expectation before watching: draw

  9. Carlsen had 'food poisoning' in the same ways as every NBA or NFL player has 'the flu'. If you had 'food poisoning', you're not at the board, you're getting an ab workout.

  10. I can understand Magnus, classical chess is boring as hell to watch, must be boring to play as well.
    Lets just all move to rapid and blitz.

  11. 4 out of 8 quarter finalist Indian. Surely Indian are dominating the world chess at the moment and even more in the future it seems with massive population in India and chess will only become more popular there.

  12. Really Magnus?? Looks LIke you obviously played for a draw with the white. The ex chapion played a cowards game.

  13. Bb5 is Portuguese opening / vairation not Spanish 🙂 quite an underrated move btw.

  14. Don't tell me I don't play openings like a professional

  15. Magnus is so good he was able to choose an opening that he knew he'd draw by leading Pragg through every step. And Pragg is such a gentleman that he agreed to playing it out knowing exactly what Magnus was offering him. Very classy game from both of them. Good show gentlemen.

  16. Title needs Update, an Extra vs is there 🙂

  17. Pragg will play many future games of rapid with Nodirbek. Carlsen will have a hard time deciding who to root for. I am sorry but the OG wont be able to take especially Nodirbek on at rapid when he is 40 years old.

  18. Agad we are missing some analysis from your side… I was thinking why the Queen was not taken with white Bishop… I’m not a pro player so help us to understand

  19. When an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

  20. India puts a craft on the moon costing them tens of billions while so many of the people live in traffic poverty.

  21. Hi Agad,

    Are you considering on doing a Saga like the Karpov Saga? I really enjoyed those.

  22. I wish I could draw 2720's at will when I have food poisoning.

  23. The last Indian who won against a white man was the one who killed General Custer.

  24. Magnus can’t blame food poisoning. Health is his responsibility.

  25. Glad it didn't end under the circumstances, would have been a lousy way to win with an asterisk. In theory it could still flip the match outcome from what it would have been in another universe, but at least it will feel the same.

  26. To be honest second game was not of level expected at this stage… Exchanging pieces in this way would definitely lead to a draw..
    Carlsen is sick n pragnnanandha is tired, is the only acceptable reason. Hoping for a better game tomorrow… All the best Prag

  27. A person (Carlsen), who's fav. food is sweet and sour PORK (shit eating pig's meat). What more poison can get to such a person ??!! 🤔🤔💩💩

  28. Just for clarity, when there are 4 bishops on the board they don’t have “2 bishop pairs each”. There are “2 bishop pairs,” or they have “1 bishop pair each”. Love you agadmator!

  29. Why is FRC not technically chess? It is at least technically chess 🤣

  30. what the hell are they feeding these poor chess championships?
