  1. Maybe I'm just poor at chess, when he played f4 would a3 followed by your Na6 to his Nb5 have won the a pawn? I know it misplaces the knight on the other-side of the action of the board, but it brings your knight to the same side of the board with similar challenges to enter the game. Also, amazing game.

  2. It looks boring for Bortnyk. You can't even talk loudly like: "It was absolutely winning and blunder then, it's ridiculous!!", or even the most famous: "CHECKMATE👊"😅

  3. Damn if u didnt blunder in the end those sacrifices were really good

  4. Typical Bortnyk. Wore his opponent down

  5. The background noise of all those pieces being moved and all those clocks being pressed is intense. Surely its something else?

    Why so easy, every one ask 😂😂?

  7. He is on another level and he should participate in tournaments with same players. Don't understand why he decided to beat a few amateurs.

  8. It takes a special player to play the Alekhine in blitz.

  9. that Re3 followed by Bg5 was extreme tactics for counterplay! boy u have my respect 😮
