  1. el magnus bien relajado con sus pantalones pescador

  2. The way Hikaru always stares into the ether, it seems that's from where he gathers his confidence.

  3. I don’t mean to insult but The guy commentating better shut your mouth and dont never ever commentate a chess game. Chess is better in a silent mood this is not a football game.

  4. Magnus always walks like me as I'm holding in an explosive diarrhea episode.

  5. 6:30 Bro imagine tryna win Blitz tournament and Magnus casually watching you 💀

  6. As it is said “A perfect game of chess will end in draw “

  7. 1:10 that is not queen's gambit that is magnus's water bottle gambit

  8. That cameraman man was like hikaru? Nah
    Magnus? Yes

  9. Who’s the goat. HikaruOr Magnus Carlson?Reply ur thoughts🧐

  10. Why does this dude keep lookin away from the board when it's his move 🤔

  11. Well, if u would hv tell us how the game would hv ended in draw after that, that would be much appreciated

  12. Let's listen to what they are talking about
    Magnus :- shhhhhh shhhh shhh
    Hikaru :- fsss fssss fsss NOD

  13. Думаю что честно после ничьей бороться на руках!

  14. Can you offer a draw anytime? And how does it work?

  15. Is this the one where Magnus tells Hikaru that the air is bad in the Hall at the end. I think thats what he says

  16. Why do I hear his voice when I read the descripition

  17. 7:00 Magnus tried to shake the guy’s hand and the guy refuse?

  19. When hikaru is frustrated or irritated about something it's really adorable to look 😂😂😆

  20. Nikaru Hakamura is the best player I have ever saw

  21. It’s always a delight to watch their games against each other. Their rivalry is much like the historic rivalries between chess players like Kasparov-Kraminik, Spassky-Fischer, etc

  22. Top chess grandmasters.😎
    Result:-It's a draw.😅

  26. man i love hikaru soo much love his expressions😂 anyways great review sagar sir

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

    Hikaru & Magnus will lose 100m USD each. Same with Danny Rensch. Magnus sucks. Wesley So rules. SAYNOTO2900

    Bobby Fischer would consider Wesley So more of a world champion than Magnus Carlsen or Hikaru Nakamura for the period 2019Nov – 2023Mar.

    (HUGE UPDATE: See zs4zpf how Magnus has something against JEWS more than Americans.)

    What do Daniil Dubov & Hikaru Nakamura have in common? Both betray their country for Magnus. Also Garry Kasparov is a traitor for cheating fellow Jew Judit Polgar.

    6 parts:

    PartI. Bobby Fischer agrees.

    PartII. Magnus, unlike ASH KETCHUM, was never the world champion.

    PartIII. Talent

    PartIV. Magnus is a corrupt coward.

    PartV. Magnus is a hypocritical cheater.

    PartVI. More on talent and then Hans Niemann


    Bobby Fischer agrees with me.

    Bobby would side with Hans & Wesley So over Magnus & Hikaru even if e wouldn't like the US government today. I guess Magnus is the reverse: no political opinion on the US but has something against American players, as Magnus ADMITTED IN A PODCAST (see yev3a1 ).

    Now, Daniil & Hikaru are traitors not for Norway but for Magnus. As Nepo pointed out, Norway is 'not a chess country'. Norway was never the villain. Magnus is the villain (but not a supervillain like Hans Niemann. cf Megamind).

    – Daniil betrays Russia by helping Magnus over Sergey & Nepo in 2021 WCC.

    – Hikaru betrays the US by siding with Magnus over Hans.


    When Wesley So or Bobby Fischer accuse people of cheating, we LISTEN.

    When Magnus Carlsen accuses, we LAUGH.

    Magnus is a cheater too. (More in partV)


    Why betray your country for Magnus, who, unlike ASH KETCHUM, was never the WC?

    Wesley So is the inaugural CLASSICAL WC and has been from 2019 to PRESENT and has NEVER LOST a classical game.

    What a joke of a so-called WC in Iceland. Congrats to Hikaru who became the FAST RAPID WC. Wesley So won really in CLASSICAL not just SLOW RAPID because the time controls were 45+15=60min! Note: Everyone who won the classical portion in the 2019 WFRCC also won their match, i.e. no one caught up in the lower time controls.

    Don't believe FIDE when they also tell you 25min-for-30moves + afterwards 5min+5sec increment is slow rapid. It is FAST RAPID because it is only 32.5min < 35min, the midpoint between 10min and 60min!

    Wesley So did not lose the title to Hikaru, like how Bobby never lost the title to Anatoly Karpov because the conditions FIDE gave that were unfavourable for the AMERICANS Bobby and Wesley So.

    Does FIDE have something against Americans? (They had only 1 non-European president.)

    There's FIFA uncovered. Where's FIDE uncovered?

    Wesley So previously faced corruption as a Philippine citizen from Prospero Pichay & NCFP (see: 0J3K-3_xCzY ) and now faces corruption as a US citizen from Magnus & FIDE.



    Magnus is the best currently, but Wesley So has been the most talented since latest 2019. Magnus lost 4-0, actually 13.5-2.5, to Wesley So in 2019. Then Magnus lost 3-1 to Nepo in 2022 and thus indirectly lost 3-1 to Hikaru. LOL.

    'Talent' is how good you are when there's no theory.

    Chess = great = a combination of theory and talent

    9LX = pure talent

    Looks like Magnus is good only for openings. Turns out Magnus is a talentless patzer who crumbles without opening prep. PATHETIC.

    Note: Patzer means extremely good at openings but sucks at middlegames or endgames.
    So much for greatest endgame player of all time ey?

    Anyhoo, Magnus is maybe 1 of the GOATs but THE GOAT?! Please. How can you be THE GOAT when you're TALENTLESS?

    2nd place in the 2019 WC was PATHETIC for a 4x WCC, later 5x WCC. And then in 2022 Magnus wasn't even 2nd place. LOL!

    9LX removes openings, so Magnus should be STRONGER not LESS STRONG. Yet in 2019 Magnus lost 13.5-2.5 to Wesley So and didn't get a single win. Why?!?!?!!!!

    And look now in 2022 Magnus lost 3-1 to Nepo despite beating Nepo 4-0 in the 2021 WCC (where Magnus cheated against Nepo). And of course consequently Magnus indirectly lost 3-1 to Hikaru. Also, Magnus should be better in rapid than classical re Sergey 2016 and Fabi 2018…yet Magnus was only 2nd 2019 & 3rd 2022. LOL.

    Larry Kaufman told me:

    (Begin quote)

    Magnus doesn't generally play such great openings, he strives to get the game out of book as early as possible usually. I think the issue here is that his greatest strength is the endgame, but FRC games are much more likely to be decided in the middlegame as the players are on their own so early. That's probably why he doesn't shine as brightly in FRC as in Classical chess.

    (End quote)

    Wesley So is by definition of beating Magnus more talented than Magnus (TALENTLESS). But still Magnus is better than Wesley So. It's like Marvel & DC. Marvel rules live action. DC rules animated.


    Magnus is a coward re the 2022 WC because:

    IV.1 – Championship privilege – The 2022 WC didn't have a candidates the same way the last 4 WCCs do. Magnus had the FULL privilege to defend against ONLY 1 OPPONENT each of the last 4 times. And Vishy from 2008-13. (But ok Wesley So got PARTIAL privilege.)

    IV.2 – Time controls – FIDE lowered by 50%! Changed the WC from classical to rapid where Magnus obviously has a higher advantage!

    Magnus even beat Sergey and Fabi only because of rapid tiebreaks. But Sergey and Fabi 'deserved' to have lower time controls because they only drew against Magnus in original time controls. But Wesley So didn't lose a single game to Magnus in 2019 and even beat Magnus 4x !!! So why did Wesley So deserve rapid time controls?!?!!

    Note: The tiebreaks Sergey and Fabi got were even 35min (25+10=35), not like 40min. I mean, 35min is exactly the border between fast rapid & slow rapid lol.

    Bobby was on top for only a short period of time because FIDE and Anatoly were cowards who ran away from Bobby. (No offense Sergey Karjakin! Or wait I can compromise: FIDE, not necessarily Anatoly Karpov, were cowards.)

    See? It happened again. FIDE and Magnus were being cowards running away from Wesley So. But it backfired on them because they didn't expect Nepo, and apparently Hikaru too, is more talented than Magnus. But I already knew it: Nepo lost only 3x to Wesley So in 2019 FIDE and drew with Wesley So in 2022 St Louis while Magnus lost 4x to Wesley So in 2019 FIDE and FURTHERMORE lost to Wesley So in 2020 St Louis.

    But I guess FIDE still benefits anyway from Hikaru's winning since Hikaru is a popular streamer who sides with Magnus over Hans.


    Magnus cheated 4x

    V.1 – with David Howell against Danya Naroditsky in 2021 Dec

    V.1A – in the lichess thing.

    V.1B – in relationships. Lol.

    V.2 – with Aryan Tari against Danya in 2022 Jan again in lichess & relationships.

    V.3 – Magnus also cheated in 2019 blitz WCC in distracting Alireza: Magnus spoke in Norwegian on own turn BUT AFTER punching clock continued to talk on Alireza's turn.

    V.4 – Magnus cheated against Nepo in 2021 WCC with the knight touch move thing and then said 'do better' as part of gaslighting the reporter. Search 'magnus carlsen gaslighting'.


    Magnus is like the cheaters Tigran V / L Petrosian and is unlike the HONEST players Wesley So and Bobby Fischer. Also Garry cheated Judit by touch move. See? Magnus copied Garry.

    Also Garry is not GOAT for cheating against Judit (whose sibling Susan is JEWISH AMERICAN btw – see zs4zpf ) and not apologising for 3 decades now. But at least Garry isn't a hypocrite like Magnus.

    Levy said in a wired video that GOAT comes down to Magnus, Garry and Bobby. Garry cheated Judit. Magnus cheated Alireza Danya and Nepo. (Wesley) So Bobby wins!

    Wesley So told Hikaru in stream that 50-70 years 9LX will replace chess. See Wikipedia. Wesley So said in 2018 interview St Louis that Bobby or Garry is GOAT. Even if Bobby is not GOAT, Bobby is MTOAT – most talented of all time.

    Also, have there been any cheating scandals in 9LX?

    9LX players have more integrity than chess players.


    More on talent and then Hans Niemann

    Quote 1:
    After playing Chess960, I realise how mentally unwell chess players become the more they play it. They know they will get the same ideal setup every game and they deny the fact that they will mess it up unless they memorise some other geek's ideas. In Chess960 there is nothing to deny. You know you are going to get a far from ideal start position and you know it is up to you to make the best of it and you know you will be playing moves nobody has tried before. Which is better for your mental health?

    Quote 2:
    Chess960: The winner is the more agile mind. Chess: The winner is the biggest nerd.

    Wesley So is most TALENTED currently even though Magnus is GREATEST currently. Thank you Bobby for helping us realise how TALENTED Wesley So is.

    Wesley So ain't greatest currently or of all time. After all e was in candidates only once and got only 1 win. (All the more embarrassing for Magnus. LOL.) BUT WESLEY SO IS THE MOST TALENTED CURRENTLY AND POSSIBLY OF ALL TIME (well maybe next to Bobby). MTOAT VS GOAT.


    FIDE lowers the time controls to lower Wesley So's odds wanting Magnus to win just as chessc*m kicked out Hans Niemann wanting to please Magnus.

    Magnus not only cheats but also is a sore loser in manipulating chess entities (chessc*m & FIDE) to hurt American players (Hans & Wesley So).

    Civil conspiracy and ra()sm!

    The 5C's:




    Civil conspiracy

    I already said in this post:


    P.S. Who's the biggest sore loser?

    Light Yagami (death note),

    Magnus (chess),

    Garrett Adelstein (poker),

    Carlsen (chess960)

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