  1. I wouldn't be very surprised if he did it intentionally. The show around him must go on… im pretty sure he knows it 😉

  2. While everyone's there in suits n all my boy just came in pajama and conquered them all😂

  3. bro there was so many times in the end where by the time magus taps the time thing Kovalev already finished moving his pieces… and you look over at magnus and he's straightening his peices with like 4 seconds left, what a leagened

  4. did they end up just drawing? Lol.

  5. i looks as if he could've won if he had started with only 5 seconds left

  6. Can somebody explain why the clock starts on 3min 2sec?

  7. The moment he arrived kovalev was making his mind to accept the defeat that's where he took most of his time

  8. Should change the title of the video, Magnus is the world champion and all, but this level of sportsmanship deserves to be elevated. Hats off

  9. Straight up thought he was gonna play bongcloud for a second

  10. Now you see which difference 300 elo make! Then you can imagine the power of Alpha-Zero with 4000 elo!

  11. why does the clock time seem to increase the faster they play?

  12. Those buttocks were clenched tight wouldn't you say. Was Magnus sitting on the Magnem? Lol.

  13. That’s disrespect to your opponent, to the game, everyone else got there on time

  14. Ничего не мыслю в шахматах. Все 10 минут не отрываясь смотрю на секунды в будильнике и их эмоции 😆

  15. What with the ending two kings in middle and queens off board???

  16. Специально время тянет?

  17. That's fucked up. I wouldn't play another game for the rest of my life.

  18. This muthafucka was adjusting pieces like he had a full 3:00 to play. What a mindfuck

  19. Was that a close match? I know time was but I don’t think mag was I trouble at all

  20. Dude had a pain in the gutz that would not quit!

  21. Une manière bien indélicate de déstabiliser son adversaire…

  22. It’s 2.5min late or 2min30sec late

  23. A Magnus is never late. He arrives precisely when he means too

  24. Only you stickler chess people could be pissed a guy shows up 5 mins late. Sorry not a guy but potentially the greatest chess player to ever walk the earth. You think the nba would even bat an eyelash at postponing a game 10 mins cause Lebrons running a little late? Show some respect to what you just witnessed a nearly impossible feat. And he took the time TWICE to straighten out his pieces. What a G.

  25. Who won ? That guy came running late ?

  26. At that level, what is satisfying is not winning by handicap but winning by fair play

  27. I don’t know how this chess with the clock works… but from what to can tell the game wasn’t over yet…

  28. dude is so slow its getting annoying, he thought about his one move for 5 seconds with only 11 on the clock, knowin damn well he wasnt moving any other piece

  29. Chess has a bit of a problem in that no one seems to be nice to anyone.

  30. İ'm sorry, but i think coming late to the game is just disrespectful and arrogant, no matter if you win the game or not.

  31. Quick question. Did he ever lost a game ? Looks like the guy is a genius and he is what 25 years old!

  32. Did not like the expression of Magnus after even wining

  33. i love how simple chess is. no idea how to play it tho lmfao. it’s just cool how they’re like “okay…good move…you win…let’s walk away now”😂😂😂

  34. he did it on purpose for drama and bragging rights

  35. Billy Madison. .

    He's good 👍🏻 😂

  36. At his level he should show a bit more class and respect.
