  1. A pinned mate, where all the pieces that could capture the checking piece are pinned to the King.

  2. The immortal check, call it the immortal check

  3. What an amusing opening form Carlsen!

  4. also Qxe3 will result chechmate that I found, true?

  5. Man was trolling really hard because he knew even in a coma he wouldn't lose to a 2000 rated opponent😂😂

  6. "It is now at move 2 that Magnus puts down the crack pipe."

  7. and it is as of move 2 that we have a completely new game😂😂

  8. You think its troll opening but if GM throw you insta out of the theory, then he is actually ahead 😀

  9. if you are going to take the night at f6, better take it at a6 in move 3

  10. That check should be called "The Shining check" because it reminds the scene where Jack surprises Wendy with his face in the broken bathroom door

  11. so is this now considered as a top tier game database?

  12. Magnus started out with a Late Bobby Fischer approach – made several moves like a kid to throw the game out of memorized theory, then engaged his first-class chess brain.

  13. How about calling it a "Face Check" it is a gaming term used for entering a place where you do not have vision of – face first, with the idea of just crashing through. #suggestion

    Thanks Antonio love the content!

  14. What's the point of showing this game? Very amateurish

  15. Don't just move pieces on the chess board, have a plan, particularly for end game.

  16. A lot of this setup reminds me of the Englund gambit! Threats of sacing bishops for discovered checks on queens, allowing damaging of the structure to open up a rooks file, really cool idea by Magnus for how to achieve a familiar position from out of theory.

  17. The fact that the opponent's elo is 2023, and he got pushed few years back😅😅😅

  18. it’s been said a bunch but i’m just thinking about how many times in a row a 2000 player would kick my ass, and then seeing magnus treat them like an infant really drives home the point of how different super gm’s are

  19. Suggestion of Check Name by referring to Wiki List of established military terms: Check can be called "Garrison Check": a body of troops holding a particular location on a long-term basis. Pawn was holding a rook so could not cover the queen's attack

  20. instead if queen sacrifies, there was a rook sac also on Rxf2, then the king must capture rook, and Qxg3+ next…and in a couple of moves there is mate

  21. Magnus couldn't decide which rook to use 🤣🤣

  22. Men dancing behind him? now i'm sold. *Puts hoodie away
    See you next time old friend, next time.

  23. 6:58Privileged CheckA check only allowed because of special circumstances

  24. at 6:05 I think the Bf3 is more solid because Rg1 hangs the pawn on h3 by Bxh3… if gxh3 then Qxg2#
