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. still waiting for the b4 t-shirt

  2. at 5:30 do i miss sth or is not queen g3 just followed by losing your queen to a pawn? 😅

  3. You don't need to try this hard to convince us that B4 is the greatest move in chess Agad

  4. Thank god there is a well-known Evans activist out in the world… it’s tough out there man.

  5. Don't worry Antonio, when million qbit quantum computers calculate every possibility in the multiverse; GrandMasters will eventually realize the Evan's Gambit is the strongest reply … it will just take time for GM's to see it 🙂

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

    Hans Niemann, Bobby Fischer & Fabiano Caruana are Jewish American.


    Bobby Fischer would agree with me.
    Bobby Fischer would agree with me.
    Bobby Fischer would agree with me.
    We both are mentally unwell, hate chess & have many friends in the Philippines. Eugene Torre is even my FB friend.
    Wesley So would be Bobby's favourite.

    In 2022 Oct, oprocyona told me:

    'Many decisions in tournament chess are made to favor the player that brings in the most sponsorship dollars and views, which is undoubtedly Magnus. There's also no doubt that Magnus generally dislikes americans- he said so on one of the Magnus effect podcast episodes'

    Hans is American like Bobby, Wesley So, Fabiano Caruana, Maurice Ashley, et al & is Jewish like Bobby, Fabi, Ian Nepomniachtchi, Sergey Karjakin, et al.


    Magnus' worst defeat was to Wesley So in the classical 2019 wfrcc finals. Magnus lost 3x classical games in a row.

    When was the last time in fide or pca wc finals a defending champion or higher rated player lost 3x classical games in a row?

    Also, Wesley So is American. Coincidence?

    Hans Niemann is like the last straw for Magnus Carlsen who has been fed up with Americans / Jews. I imagine Magnus thinks as follows :

    1 – 'I couldn't beat American Wesley So in the 2019 WFRCC and again in 2020 St Louis 9LX. Damn that nobody "w"esley "s"o who got only 1 win in the 2018 candidates but then next year beats me in 3x classical FRC games in a row.'

    2 – 'I couldn't beat Jewish American Fabi or Jewish Sergey in the classical portions of our WCCs.'

    3 – '9LX, which I SUCK at, was invented by Jewish American Bobby Fischer.'

    4 – 'American Eric Rosen beat me in 9LX.'

    5 – 'American Hikaru is overrated and is really just "DECENT".'

    (Note: Hikaru became rapid WFRCC after betraying the US for Magnus. So never mind.)

    6 – 'Canadian-American Andrea Botez doesn't know how knights move.'

    (Note: Alex & Andrea, unlike their dad, side w/ Magnus over Hans. Guess they're traitors too. So as w/ Hikaru, nvm.)

    7 – 'Jewish American Danya almost beat me in lichess. Good thing I cheated 2x.'

    8 – 'Jewish Nepo almost beat me in the 2021 WCC. Good thing I cheated.'

    9 – 'Jewish Anish almost beat me in 2023 Superbet. Good thing I cheated.'

    10 – 'Jewish Alexandra Kosteniuk beat me in 2009 blitz WCC despite my cheating.'

    11 – 'Alireza almost beat in 2019 blitz WCC. Good thing I cheated. No idea what's up w/ Alireza, but MVL, who is Jewish, is French like Alireza.'

    12 – 'So far in WFRCC (2019) and St Louis 9LX (2020,2021), there was always an American in 1st place and a European in 2nd place.'

    (Note: This extended to 2022 for both. So more reasons for Magnus.)

    13 – 'American Maurice Ashley was rude to me in the 2017 Paris GCT.'

    14 – 'Some aren't even REAL Americans. American Rex Sinquefield is buying all these foreigners to be "Americans". Like I said, the US is "buying nerds"'.

    15 – 'The Queen's Gambit is about an American ey? Well because I got only 2nd place in the 2019 WFRCC, NetflixtheQG gets only 5/6 from me! Beth Harmon is just a copy of Jewish Judit Polgar & Jewish American Bobby Fischer. Also, Judit's sibling Susan is Jewish American.'

    16 – 'Also I heard Carissa Yip is now in a secret relationship w/ Wesley So because of Carissa's twitter header. So that means more Americans in chess?'

    (And then all of a sudden it blows up in Magnus' face like…)

    17 – 'Now, this Jewish American Hans beats me with the black pieces. Wait Hans has a history of cheating? Right, I can use cheating as an excuse to be a sore loser. Damn American STLCC for their poor cheating detection. Or STLCC was probably helping Hans cheat. In particular, Chris Bird. I wouldn't quit Tata Steel or Norway chess if Hans beat me there, but I would for the Sinquefield Cup. Later in the tournament Hans lost only to 2 Americans Wesley So & Fabi and beat 2 non-Americans Shak & me (though Shak is Jewish).'






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


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

    2nd: TIMESTAMPS PLEASE #SUGGESTION or why not let viewers make timestamps in comments then you can pin the best timestamp comment and copy the timestamps to the video description?

    magnus cheats anish in round 7 superbet blitz –> 3:22:36 in 8gw7XDq87C4 #suggestion

    Agad, what's your opinion of FIDE's use of the terms 'slow rapid' & 'fast rapid' please? This has implications for Wesley So.


    (0,10) is blitz.

    [10,60) is rapid.

    [60,120) is unrated classical.

    [120,infinity) is rated classical.

    So what's 'slow rapid'?

    Try to check out the maths here – they said both 32.5min & 60min are 'slow rapid'. Does this strike you as odd?

    I see only 2 possible definitions for slow & fast rapid.

    Def 1 – slow rapid means unrated classical [60,120) and fast rapid is rapid [10,60).

    –> this means Wesley So is not classical WFRCC but slow rapid WFRCC while Hikaru is fast rapid WFRCC.

    Def 2 – slow rapid & fast rapid cut up rapid [10,60) into resp [35,60) and [10,35).

    –> 2 issues here. 60min is not in either of these. Also, 32.5 is in [10,35). So neither 60 nor 32.5 are slow rapid. Lol. Wesley So is again classical WFRCC while Hikaru is (fast) rapid WFRCC.

    Def3 –> Since 15+2=17 is fast rapid, [10,X) is fast rapid & [X,120) is slow rapid for some 17 < X < 32.5. like say X is some arbitrary number like X=20 or X=30. Lol yeah right!!

    Other suggestions related to women in chess:

    A – Anna Cramling's dad beats Mikhail Tal. #suggestion

    B – Philippine women's chess #suggestion – WGM Janelle Frayna, the 1st and only Philippine WGM, upset Georgian GM (really GM not just WGM) Bela Khotenashvili at the 2022 world blitz.

    There's a 13-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. Qe6 Bf6 7. Qe8+ Kc7 8. Qc8+ Kd6 9. e5+ Qxe5 10. d8=R+ Bxd8 11. Qxd8+ Kc6 12. Qa8+ Kb5 13. Qxa2

    For some reason none of the Philippine channels except Kelvinllovejr 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.

    2016 WCC – This is relevant to the 2023 WCC.

    Please agad cover the other decisive game of the Sergey Karjakin vs Magnus Carlsen 2016 WCC #suggestion

    What happened is that Magnus lost to Sergey AS WHITE in Game 8 but then compensated for a white loss with A WHITE WIN in Game 10. This is what happened to Liren Ding & Nepo for Games 2 & 4 of 2023 WCC.

    Why doesn't a drawn match go to the player w/ more black wins (if any) s.t. Sergey Karjakin not Magnus Carlsen is 2016 WCC & Ian Nepomniachtchi not Liren Ding is 2023 WCC?

    This has happened BEFORE!


    2022 Accentus Chess960

    Vincent Keymer and Nodirbek Abdusattorov both finished with 5.0/7 and tied first. However, as Keymer won more games with Black, he won the tournament on tiebreak.


    1980 – 1981 candidates tournament

    'When the quarterfinal between Portisch and Spassky was tied after 14 games, Portisch was declared the winner because he had won more games with Black.'

    Actually maybe cover the only 2 decisive games here if not already? #suggestion


    1983-1984 candidates tournament

    It wasn't repeated! The premise was the same! Hübner had more black wins than Smyslov before tiebreaks. After tiebreaks were tied, a ROULETTE determined Symslov won!!

    Actually maybe cover the only 2 decisive games here if not already? #suggestion






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





  9. Thx for getting rid of that garbage comment. You know the one.

  10. Ok seriously tho……why don’t top players play the Evan’s ??

  11. Gukesh has really been shining bright. I have enjoyed his play in the last few tournaments very much. Thank you as always for the great analysis @agadmator <3

  12. #suggestion Anna Cramling played in Day 7 with huge accuracy, made a piece sac, and an insect interrupted the game in a funny way.

  13. It would be great if Agadmator starts displaying Stockfish Engine Evaluation Bar into his content. This addition would provide a clearer and more comprehensive visualization of the game's current situation. The videos would be more immersive, educational for new chess players, and engaging for all viewers. Just a suggestion. I hope he'd at least consider it. Another improvement could be: displaying the time/clock situation of the game.

  14. I realize i don't know how pranav looks like from this picture.

  15. So glad you finally got that quote correct

  16. I cant believe that you have never covered any lasker vs steinitz wcc this is a travesty#suggestion

  17. Pranav play weird much more than have

  20. The olden days. That takes me back. A time I played Chess without rampant cheating and computer use.
