  1. The chess table looked quite shaky and was may be even squeaking. The board was moving visibly. I was hoping the table doesn't fall apart with both Hikaru and Nihal leaning on it. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. I always get the feeling nihal just moves in hope. Doesnโ€™t really calculate.

  3. Pl give running chess format at the top of video

  4. When Nakamora lost immediately leave, but when he win, then he arranges pieces ๐Ÿ˜‚

  5. Why is there a guy making a sheep sound every 10 seconds wtf

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

    What do Daniil and Hikaru have in common? Both betray their country for Magnus.

    Note: Not for Norway but for Magnus. As Nepo pointed out in 2021, Norway isn't a chess country. So Norway was never the villain. Magnus is the villain.

    – Daniil betrayed Russia by helping Magnus over Sergey and Nepo in WCC 2021.
    – Hikaru betrayed the US by siding with Magnus over Hans without sufficient evidence.

    What is up with Magnus that makes people betray their countries for Magnus? Magnus was never the WC, so why betray your country for Magnus?


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

    When Magnus Carlsen accuses, we LAUGH. Magnus is a cheater too eg against

    – Alireza 2019,
    – Danya 2021 and
    – Nepo 2021.

    Part0. Intro

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

    Wesley is the inaugural world champion and has been from 2019 to PRESENT. Wesley did not lose in a game to Magnus in Iceland in 2022Oct. Wesley did not lose the title to Hikaru same as how Bobby Fischer did not lose the title to Anatoly Karpov because of the conditions FIDE gave that were unfavourable for the AMERICANS Bobby and Wesley. Does FIDE have something against Americans? (They had only 1 non-European president, a Filipino/Filipina/Philippine.)

    Magnus sucks. Wesley rules.

    Part1. Talent

    Magnus may be the best currently, but Wesley has been the most talented since 2019 in being the only world champion since 2019. (Hikaru is the RAPID world champion.) Magnus lost 4-0 actually 13.5-2.5 to Wesley in 2019. Then Magnus lost 3-1 to Nepo in 2022 and thus indirectly lost 3-1 to Hikaru. LOL.

    Chess = great = a combination of theory and talent

    9LX = pure talent

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

    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 and endgames.

    So much for greatest endgame player of all time ey?

    Magnus is maybe a GOAT but THE GOAT? Please. How can you be THE GOAT when you're TALENTLESS?

    Wesley told Hikaru in stream that 50-70 years 9LX will replace chess. See my vids if you don't believe me. Wesley said in 2018 interview St Louis that Bobby or Garry is greatest of all time. Even if Magnus is greatest of all time, Magnus is definitely not MTOAT – most talented of all time.

    Don't tell me about 2nd place. 2nd place in 9LX is pathetic for a 4x world chess champion esp 1 who later became 5x world chess champion.

    Aaaaaand now 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 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 2nd 2019 and 3rd 2022. LOL.

    Part2: Magnus is a coward because:

    2.1 – FIDE's 9LX WC in Iceland doesn't have a candidates the same way the last 4 WCCs do. Magnus had the privilege to defend against ONLY 1 OPPONENT each of the last 4 times. (And Vishy from 2008-2013.) Here, there isn't like a tournament / a series of tournaments and then the unique winner will face Wesley.

    2.2 – They lowered the time controls. The 2019 time controls are 35% higher than the 2022 time controls. Magnus obviously has a higher advantage in rapid since Magnus was rapid WCC and reached 2900 in rapid. Magnus even beat Sergey and Fabi only because of rapid tiebreaks. Magnus couldn't beat Fabi in a classical WCC game!!! But anyway, Sergey and Fabi I guess 'deserved' to have lower time controls because they only drew against Magnus in original time controls. But Wesley didnt lose a single a game to Magnus in 2019 and even beat Magnus 4x !!!

    Sergey and Fabi deserved lower time controls. Why did Wesley deserve lower time controls?!?!!

    Bobby Fischer was on top for only a short period of time because FIDE and Anatoly Karpov (no offense Sergey Karjakin!) were cowards who ran away from Bobby.

    See? It happened again. FIDE and Magnus were being cowards running away from Wesley. 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 in 2019 FIDE and drew with Wesley in 2022 St Louis while Magnus lost 4x to Wesley in 2019 FIDE and FURTHERMORE lost to Wesley in 2020 St Louis.

    9LX saynoto2900

    Part3. Cheating

    Magnus cheated 3x

    3.1 – with David Howell against Danya Naroditsky

    3.1A – in the lichess thing.

    3.1B – in relationships. Lol.

    3.2 – Magnus also cheated in world blitz 2019 in distracting Alireza. Yes Magnus spoke in Norwegian on own turn BUT AFTER punching clock continued to talk on Alireza's turn.

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

    Magnus is like the cheaters Tigran V Petrosian and Tigran L Petrosian and is unlike the HONEST people Wesley So and Bobby Fischer. Also Garry Kasparov cheated against Judit Polgar by touch move. See? Magnus copied Garry. Lol. I guess 9LX players have more integrity than chess players.

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

    See. Chess has a lot of cheaters while 9LX has virtually none.

    Anyhoo, see "magnus carlsen gaslighting".

    Part4. More on talent and then stuff about 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 the most TALENTED currently even though Magnus is the GREATEST currently. Thank you Bobby Fischer for helping us realise how TALENTED Wesley is.

    Wesley So is far from the greatest currently or of all time. HOWEVER WESLEY SO IS THE MOST TALENTED CURRENTLY AND POSSIBLY OF ALL TIME (well maybe next to Bobby Fischer). MTOAT VS GOAT.


    What of a joke so-called world championship in Iceland recently. Congrats to Hikaru who became the RAPID 9LX world champion. Ok fine Wesley won in SLOW RAPID not classical, but don't believe FIDE when they tell you 25min-for-30moves is slow rapid. It is FAST RAPID.

    Wesley never lost the title to Hikaru, same as how Bobby Fischer never lost the title to Anatoly Karpov. FIDE was being cowardly in 1975 and is being cowardly in 2022. Lol.

    FIDE lowers the time controls to lower Wesley's odds wanting Magnus to win just as chessc*m kicked out Hans Niemann because chessc*m wants to please Magnus. Lol. Magnus not only cheats (eg against Alireza, Danya and Nepo) but also manipulates chess entities (resp chessc*m and FIDE) into hurting American players (resp Hans and Wesley) for Magnus' benefit. Civil conspiracy and ra()sm. LOL.

    I already said in this post

    Parallel between Hans and Fischer Random 2022? After Magnus quits the event Sinquefield Cup / WCC, the entity chesscom / FIDE takes action, against an American, that is advantageous to Magnus, for another event: Remove Hans CGC. / Announce FRC with lower time controls, giving Wesley a disadvantage.


    P.S. agadmator accepted my suggestion As32LdyKDbc

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

    Light Yagami (death note),

    Magnus Carlsen (chess),

    Garrett Adelstein (poker),

    Magnus Carlsen (chess960)

    P.P.P.S. Would Bobby Fischer side with Magnus over Hans or Wesley? God bless America (or at least American players. I don't think Bobby would like the US government today, but I think Bobby would like the US players today esp Hans and Wesley).

  7. This city needs to check their throats ๐Ÿ˜‚

  8. Why am I coughing while watching ๐Ÿ˜…

  9. For some reason Hikaru places his pawns closer to his king instead of center of the square at the start.

  10. When someone clears his throat that means black has a slight advantage. Nihal is cheating ๐Ÿ˜‚

  11. This is grand Master Game and chess base forgets to put up a 2D chess display box?—very disappointed at Chess Base

  12. Bhai virtual board daaldo hum noob h samaj naai aata aise
