  1. It’s not even called “Chess” anymore. It’s just called “Magnus Carlson”. GOAT

  2. i like the fact that this was played in my country not too long ago 🙂

  3. Good try, but Magnus, when he's hot like this, makes it look easy! Very tactically rich game, finding and going after them.

  4. 5:55 "either a super engine or tal would play" man 🙌🔥🔥🔥

  5. Now if he could only win at least one on Pragg in classical.

  6. I realize that Kasparov said a knight on f5 is worth a pawn, but this is ridiculous, it's worth the entire game! I don't know what's more impressive, that Magnus found Nf5!! or that they were out of theory so quickly in the heavily studied Najdorf.

  7. I loved referring the super engine moves as "Tal moves"🤣

  8. something funny he said was i am going for 4 out of 4

  9. Hey Agad, please take a consultation for your voice. Vocal nodules, maybe.

  10. i want to see Maxime playing the same position instead of Vincent now

  11. #Suggestion. Sumiya Bilgunn Vs Abdisattarov or Sumiya Bilgunn Vs Magsoodloo. A 2450 rated player drawn two matches agains Super GM's. Mind blowing 😮😮

  12. Shows how well one of the previous lower rated opponents did to reach 61 moves.

  13. i don't think Bd5 is hard to find but probably it was difficult to evaluate the position with a queen but down three pieces and poor pawn structure. intuitively seems tough to play practically for white but ofc engine makes it look easy.

  14. "You have of course Magnus number 1 for, like, forever"

  15. The Nf5 line was absolutely brutal! Also, Bd5 is like blinding sunlight on the African Sahara. It's so ruthless that it hurt my eye with its glare!

  16. Thr Nadjorf is once again neutralized. 💪

  17. Something about this channel uploading daily really brings me joy

  18. Brutal.
    How the hell did he make that look so easy?

  19. Appreciate the greatness we are witnessing, Magnus Carlsen a brilliant Master of his craft.

  20. Please do tackle or analyze some of Alekhine's greatest games!

  21. that B4 move just breaks Chess. I've been starting my games with it recently and crushing the competition. apparently it's called the polish opening. So if you can't get them to come to italy for your evans gambit, just take them to poland instead on move 1 lol.

  22. Najdorf is turning in his grave

  23. Please Mamedyarov vs Dardha daniel 🔥🔥🔥

  24. Fedoseev’s game today was cool with a piece sacrifice

  25. Someone will find a counter to this game , it's not over for the Najdorf

  26. Magnus saw Najdorf on the board & thought it was Maxime playing so decided to vent out all his frustration of losing the AI cup.

  27. Vincent is the future. Just couple of more years.

  28. As a player with virtually no knowledge of the Sicilian defense, I see this as an absolute win!

  29. Nguyen v Pranav from this same round 5 👀

  30. You don't want to play Sicilian with Magnus
    His main preparation during world championship match

  31. 4/4 by Magnus. Also, first!

  32. At the first pause, why can't magnus take the knight with his queen? It's undefended….
