He's the best after all 🔥🔥
At 3:00 minute mark, isn't that just a missed pin to the queen?
at the 3 minute mark magnus had Bb5 pinning the queen to the king along that diagonal, couldn't take rook as it would be an illegal move
a walk in the park for this guy
Magnus is the real champion.
@1:09 instead of taking pawn why not knight takes bishop f2, forced to take back, then get other pinned bishop to safety?
Daniel should try resigning in games that aren't bullet.
Magnus missed Bg4 to pin the Queen. With 1 min on the clock.. That's abit rusted. But gg.
Better than watch for 5 hours the boring fide champs
3:01 he had Bb5 winning the queen, why didn’t he play it?
