  1. I havent got time to watch a sub minute game if it takes 10 minutes.

  2. I love that he just smokes a cig while playing one of the best in the world. My new coffee chess favorite

  3. Bishop takes pawn, check, castle takes bishop, queen takes castle check, king moves, knight to C4 white checkmate

  4. "How could I lose 5to1"
    random guy uncontrollable laugher 😅

  5. Does anyone know where to buy online this chess set? Any links you can share. Thanks in advance

  6. I'ts "Blook Moogic, moon !" (spoken with a Somali accent)

  7. Why did the game end at 1:20? He had him in check but could easily move his king out of harms way .What am i missing? I used to play chess a lot but it has been decades since i played. He could have moved his king yo f2 then g3 to get out of harms way.

  8. As an outsider, it’s so unreal to hear all the excitement that someone was two steps merely from having a pawn advantage from Hikaru. Ridiculous. How good you must be for this level of excitement about that!?

  9. I loved how the second guy just kept fighting through a hard game. Well done!

  10. Is the "chess at park" kind of trope real? Theres something i like about playing someone face to face that online doesnt do for me, but ive never in my life seen any "chess hotspots" or even people playing chess in person apart from my schools chess room and people rarely using their own boards at home when i visit.

  11. Hikaru got beat up by Eric Rosen and Eric Rosen is soft

  12. The first old guy sacrificed his queen for no reason lol

  13. I had that Nxd4 move during the game and was surprised he didn’t play it. Didn’t know it could potentially have such an outcome of the game though.

  14. I learn from this ty for letting us see the board

  15. Thats not a hustler. This guy blows. 1000 Elo max

  16. The first segment… Hikaru pinned the queen like it was nothing! He over matched the guy…

  17. If a white guy said that about the pieces in the beginning. Hold on for your life…. Lol. Love the double standards.

  18. I miss Bobby Fischer in the game. Can you imagine a 11 year old kid stepping up and kicking your GM butt?

  19. What do GM chess players do for work? Do they know how to do anything else?

  20. :34 is some old school street play lol
    1:57 i like e4 much more than a2 personally… pressure against the castle

  21. I like how Hikaru is an elite level pro worth millions of dollars showing love to regular players who enjoy the game. Truly you have to respect him for that.

  22. "That's smart of you, man", when losing the queen.
    He had some style.

  23. This is just ‘speed getting banged in the bum’.

  24. Help me understand (I’m not a chess player). Why is everyone that isn’t that hikaru guy a hustler? Are all of these people actually hustling or is that term just used loosely in the chess community.

  25. This takes place in Boston? Where is this shop? I would like to stop by and lose 4 games

  26. Dude… for real… a pawn up? That's what you had us wait for? ✋️

  27. "Do you see the winning combo for white?" – uh, no… you have graphics covering the entire board… I can't see shit.

  28. Why would they go so fast if they know they’re playing a gm lol


  30. Why is it presumed that he is a hustler? Racist ass channel.

  31. Hikaru is a monster I still can’t break a 1500 rating and I’ve been playing for over a year like a madman

  32. Nakamura what's your rating? Err I don't have one. Nakamura haha feel my power minion

  33. I'm not a fan of chess but i like watching these games and the interactions.

  34. Shout-out to you man. Fast strategic and critical thinking. Just wow!

  35. What's crazy is the guys he played are really really good. That's how gifted this mother f*** is

  36. I have no intellectual knowledge of chess and I know I would of beat the pineapple 🍍 shirt. Jk ur the greatest man keep up the awesome work.
