  1. There are chess pigs in Europe who are afraid of Russia

  2. Wasn't Alireza ahead of Wesley So in the 2023 rating lists for the whole year except during December? The issue for me is the FIDE rule that considers only the last rating list at the end of year for the candidate spot. Think about it objectively and answer honestly, who deserves the most the candidate, the guy who was ahead almost all year long or the guy who got ahead at the very last moment?
    Perhaps Wesley's solid style would produce better results at the candidates but I can understand why Alireza was annoyed and did what was possible within the FIDE rules to earn his place at the candidates. If you ask me, ideally they should both be there…

  3. An incredible game. Both players with strong winning chances. Moves that win and moves that destroy their positions. The human element is very intriguing! I feel bad for Wesley here. A great plan on a very well known initial position!

  4. Alireza's dirty grinding forced FIDE to change the qualification rules so that he can't resort to dirty grinding again

  5. A big fan of you, Agadmator. At the same time, I wonder how you would have talked about the black player, had he been one of the channel favourites (Dubov, either of the Indian prodigies etc).

  6. I forgot about our good friend bishop😢😢😢

  7. No need to say who belong, already firouza qualified b4 dis tournament, just try to insult wesley so in your content, respect!

  8. For a moment there I thought he was about to thank Jeremy Irons

  9. tal once said that his favorite way to win was to spot a trap laid by his opponent, find a hole in it, and then "fall into it" catching his opponent in his own trap.
