Magnus Carlsen is playing three games this weekend in the Norwegian League (Eliteserien) for his team Offerspillsk. These may be his last classical games as World Chess Champion.

The players have 90 minutes for 40 moves, then 30 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment from move 1.

  1. Can spot a checkmate from a mile away but can't spot a decent hair brush

  2. This channel growth is literally nothing in front of gothamchess this shows the quality difference

  3. Thanks for making these! Really appreciate your approach!

  4. Hammer 🔨 s lord . How he can loose 😜🤟🤔

  5. I thought this was the en passant game. Did Agadmator cover that?

  6. Nice, I am a true master of the endgame and guessed RB8

  7. Magnus and finding ways to win a pawn into the endgame, name a better match than this!

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

    Magnus actually does something good in the endgame? That's surprising considering Magnus sucks at middlegames or endgames because Magnus was 4x WCC at the time when Magnus lost the inaugural WC to Wesley So

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

    2nd comment: Philippine women's chess #suggestion – WGM Janelle Frayna, the female Wesley So, upset Georgian GM (really GM not just WGM) Bela Khotenashvili at the 2022 world blitz.

    There's a 12-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. Qf7 Bf6 7. Qe8+ Kc7 8. Qc8+ Kd6 9. e5+ Qxe5 10. d8=R+ Bxd8 11. Qxd8+ Kc6 12. Qa8+ Kd7

    For some reason none of the Philippine channels 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.

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


  10. Nice nice to see Magnus not just playing a great endgame when he’s under pressure nice to see him winning and being in front of blacks moves Good Game Good Call

  11. "I mean you could capture, but you'd lose the game…ok so yeah". Had me laughing

  12. On 6:03, why can't R capture Bb5 then knight takes e6 with fork?

  13. It's funny to me that I don't have the good feelings for Carlsen that I had for Fischer Both are prima donas of the chess world.

  14. I don't remember Jon's name. He is good and I should recognize him.

  16. Amazing video and thank you for breaking it down!! Despite the economic downturn,I'm so happy☺️. I have been earning $11,200 returns from my $7000 investment every 14days.

  17. Did Medo pass away? I have not seen him in the background in a long time! I wish he would give an update on why this is

  18. Black had a bad bishop which is key to Magnus victory in endgame.

  19. Excellent serious classical chess => very good
    But please bring back the sorcery series! 😊

  20. It's amazing that MC will probably retire out of boredom. To be that good that there's no one else to challenge you must be an eerie place to be.

  21. Hey agad is there a way that me and you can play
    On the internet I would love to play you because of your knowledge in chess the way you review a game remembering every line from other games and everything
    If I'm being honest you are the g.o a t. When it comes to chess your details and knowledge is just God mode

  22. Magnus will still be the highest rated player and neither Nepo or Ding are on his level…. so yeah whose the world champ?

  23. Move seven. In a classical game where seemingly normal moves were played each time.

  24. If you can survive to the endgame against Magnus, then you will lose.

  25. 2.21 "You have to capture the queen" should be "You have to capture the knight".

  26. If Magnus offers you something, it might be in his favor.

  27. Call me crazy, but with a name like Hammer, he should win everything.

  28. Beating Ludwig hammer is like beating a woman…it’s nice

  29. 6:35 you could play Bb7 but that instantly loses the game, not only cause you blunder the pawn on e6, but also blunders the rook with Nxe6+ forking the rook and king

  30. Remember who became heavyweight boxing champion when Mike Tyson went to prison and was stripped of his titles? Yea. Neither do I. That’s basically what Ding and Nepo are playing for. Most people who know chess won’t think that the winner of that match is the champion of anything.

  31. You can capture on h2 but you would lose the game – classic Agad
