00:00 Hello Everyone!

Norway Chess is a 10-player round-robin featuring Top 5 stars Magnus Carlsen, Alireza Firouzja and Hikaru Nakamura taking place in Stavanger, Norway from 30 May to 9 June. Each of the 9 rounds consists of a classical game where a win is worth 2 points and a loss 0. If the players draw they play an Armageddon game, where the winner earns 1.5 points and the loser 1 point. No draw offers are allowed before move 30.

The 3+2 blitz opener takes place on Monday 29th and will give the winners the chance to pick their pairing numbers for the main event. The classical time control is 2 hours for all moves, with a 10-second increment per move only after move 40. For Armageddon White (the same player who had White in the classical game) has 10 minutes to Black’s 7, with a 1-second increment from move 41. Black wins if the game ends in a draw. A tie for 1st place will be decided by two 3+2 blitz games followed, if necessary, by a 5 vs. 4-minute Armageddon game. Official website:

  1. Please we need alireza vs nodirbek.

  2. Trading (or exchanging) a Queen for a Rook + Knight + pawn and also having a promising pawn structure is hardly a "Queen sacrifice". But yet, they keep calling it that, no matter WHAT the objective situation dictates! The same applies to exchanging a Queen for two Rooks, etc. Everything hinges on the nature of the position, irrespective of whether or not you've given up your Queen in exchange for something else. Gukesh obviously had a winning endgame, but he unfortunately was unable to convert it into a win. It can happen to anyone.

  3. Centuries of going barefoot, ablutions in the Ganges and poor nutrition have paid off. It seems that these are natural requirements today to be a good chess player. But unfortunately the awareness of being inferior to a Norwegian makes the final result the same as always.

  4. How come Magnus didn’t discover check with the Bishop and take the rook?

  5. Why do i feel like I’ve watched this video/game already few months ago?! Dejavu

  6. Gukesh.. What a silly name 😅😅😂😂😂

  7. Please fix the aspect ratio so that the video is not cut off at the bottom of the screen in landscape mode.

  8. Magnus is starting to look ragged, not in chess, but his physical appearance. Is he descending into some sort of Bobby Fischer madness? I hope not.

  9. #suggestion Fabi vs Shak round 4. Amazing win by Shak after getting out of a losing position in the opening.

  10. Extremely fortunate in this game Magnus..

  11. gukesh is very good, but magnus had his guitar tuned at the crossroads

  12. Instead of king to e8, better move is king to e7. No more checks.. black wins

  13. #suggestion – Hey agad! I don't get to tune in as much as I use to but still try to catch an analysis when I see you pop up in the sidebar. It'd be neat if you added a line to your overlay that told us what clock style the game is that your analyzing (if it's other than traditional).

  14. Magnus didn’t real win…he just didn’t lose. 😂😂😅

  15. Exciting game, and what a surge by Fabi in the recent tournaments, especially this one!

  16. Fabi gots the tournament. Magnus is still awesome.

  17. Useless Magnus won by luck again. 😂😂😂😂

  18. At 5:07 in the video, after White's e5 in the game, it seems like Magnus could have simplified with Rxd6, a sacrifice exchangeof his own. He would have gotten a pawn and knight for the rook and the remaining passed pawn would have been too weak to promote. Playing for a draw, was not his plan, though.

  19. When low on time Magnus has an instinct like a 'Tiger' pouncing on an error by the opponent. One slight mistake in the end game he sees it.


    Truly magnificent.

  20. Amazingly, when Carlsen allows the mating net, he immediately realises it and can not hide the realization:
    I wonder whether Gukesh was so focused on the board that he did not notice Carlsen's body language, thought it was just a bluff, or could not find the mistake despite realising there was one.

  21. Has anyone seen The Aga 🐶 recently?
    He always used to be on cushions, i hope 🤞 he isn’t in doggo heaven.

  22. The reason for Gukesh missing the mate is because he is not a natural aggressive player like Tal or Fisher but a positional one. Then when he is forced to play like Tal it’s a very tough ask. On the contrary had this been Tal instead of Gukesh than Magnus would have surely been convincingly crushed 😀

  23. Gukesh had Magnus dead to rights. Too bad he couldn’t see the mating net. I’m sure he’s not happy that he missed it. Maybe next time.

  24. I need help from someone who is good at chess, why didnt Magnus push c6 at 3:05???

  25. Hi Kesh lost the game but won respect of many chess fans .

  26. I don't like the super-fast games. The rapid chess is fine, everything past that just puts too much pressure on even top players. I don't feel I am seeing them at their best.

  27. I almost can't believe I haven't seen a collaboration of Agadmator with Gotham. One can pronounce names and has some great knowledge of famous games, and one is more American.

  28. Definitely don't sacrifice if you are playing a speed chess

  29. 2:51 Remanoeuvring the knight, or should we say preparing c6 to trap the rook and win the exchange. No?
