00:00 Hello Everyone!

Magnus Carlsen and Hikaru Nakamura are set to compete in the Play-In for the Aimchess Rapid, the 4th event on the $2 million+ 2023 Champions Chess Tour. It takes place on on June 12 and will decide who joins Fabiano Caruana, Nodirbek Abdusattorov, Jorden van Foreest and Vladimir Fedoseev in the main event that runs July 10-14.

It begins with a 9-round Swiss tournament before the top finishers advance to Match Play, where a 2-game match, with possible Armageddon, decides who qualifies and to which of three Divisions. The time control is rapid chess, with 10 minutes per player for all moves, plus a 2-second increment per move from move 1. For the Armageddon decider, players bid the lowest amount of time they are willing to play to get to choose colour. The opponent gets 10 minutes, with no increment, with Black winning the match in case of a draw. Official website:

  1. I think Magnus only can beat players less stronger than him. He hasn't beat anyone better

  2. I noticed something different in this video I really liked. You show an idea line with arrows only which encouraged me to see it in my head rather than rely on seeing the pieces in their actual position. I think this will help me improve as well as being entertained. Just a thought! Obv love the content etc 👍👍🙌

  3. defeating 2600s is not form for Magnus Carlsen

  4. 8:09 don't understand why Magnus did not take the pawn on H4, check. Trade queens and go into a seemingly clear winning endgame.

  5. Agad Fucking Mator hello everyoneing me daily since covid with quality chess. Top lad. 💪💪💪👌

  6. Magnus may not have won the championship this year if he played, he is not at all in form.

  7. 3.18 Ra2. Rather Ra1.
    Thank you for the video. We love your work

  8. Heading back home I saw the video you uploaded about Aronian, half an hour later while having lunch I was watching Jerry's most recent video, and as soon as I'm done with my lunch you upload again?! Could this day get any better?

  9. Next video, magnus maybe not in form? After losing one against Saric after the win…😮

  10. Magnus only wants to play short time controls nowadays 😂

  11. How did you post this video the moment he lost the second the game 😂😂

  12. If anyone else sees a cut off board viewing on an iPhone on the YouTube app, this dumb trick fixes it for me : hit the gear for settings in the top right, open listening controls at the very bottom, close it, and then you can see the full board.

  13. 5:03 Any reason why not 33. … Rxf3 ??
    Breaks up white's pawn defence plus opens up the white bishop to capture e4 at some point.

  15. Support your channel by donation?😂what do u need peoples money for? Rec videos at home copying a game. Greedy mf

  16. Magnus doesn't know how to be out of form.

  17. Can someone explain what does classical chess mean? And what different types of games are in practice?

  18. The tactic to snag black's queen, and then defense with the same tactical threat, at ~6:00 is awesome! Can't imagine seeing all that in a 10+2 rapid game.
