  1. Magnus is great, arguably the greatest of all time however, Bobby Fischer will always be my favorite.

  2. “Squeeze stone from water” WHAT —this video is terrible lol

  3. You forgot to ad "is a genius".

  4. Correct pronounciation should be iam nepomishi

  5. Is this an AI speaker? He nearly speaks on every dramatic video on YouTube right now? I respect AI generated contend but if every video uses it, it becomes very boring at some time. The background music of this video was also a little bit overdramatic like it was a James Bond chase situation.

  6. Stopped watching after you butchered Nepo's name because it is obvious you do not know anything about chess

  7. When it’s your first week of learning chess

  8. the pronunciation of Ian's name was soo funny)))

  9. Who is Ding? Carlsen is the Real champ!

  10. you butcher nepo's name like no other man has done before xD

  11. In Norway one of the commentators of chess games is a professor in Russian, so ill trust his pronunciation over this one…

  12. The mental image of someone trying to squeeze a stone from water is too much.

  13. Think you misunderstand, its not ’squeeze stone from water’, its ’squeeze water from stone’.

  14. I like this player Ian Nepom Nem Tai Chi Chuan.

  15. Magnus has said he does not go for the 2900 anymore, and he only has used it to be motivated and diciplined, but now more into fun like poker.

  16. 2900 is almost impossible to in this era where computers have refined top GMs understanding of chess. which means draws are a norm when they are playing well. every draw will drag Magnus rating down.. so it does not matter if he remains undefeated for ever, his rating will still go down.

  17. Its not great to have a world champion who clearly is not the top. We all know Ding losses to Hikaru almost every time. This is unussual state to be in where the world champion is clearly not the top 2 or 3. Historically Kasparov, karmnick, Anand Carlson were all the best of their times. And they genuinely passed their championship to the then best of the time. Its just odd thats all.

  18. He is playing drunk, with friends around and making goofy moves, than still win with the best of the best. He is a genius.

  19. did anyone notice this guy just called nepo as nepomentachi…. (2:43) 😀

  20. Magnius could be a human hybrid the bible calls the seed of satan in gen chapter three or getting help from demons. Bobby fisher once said you have to be more then good and this told me there is a spiritual aspect with some chess masters.

  21. Its unfortunate Lex Friedman is a chode and a grifter. Good video otherwise.


  23. It's more accurate to say Magnus is the greatest chess player TO DATE. With the advent of the internet, with programs like Stockfish, with Zoom meetings and internet training, with access to chess databases, the contemporary chess player has resources not available in 1990. It is likely that chess training tools will improve: the 37 chess players with a >2700 rating will increase over time.

  24. Ian nepo-min-itachi is my favourite character from Naruto.

  25. So many inaccuracies in this it starts to feel lazy, respectfully.

  26. What in the world? Who cares what gothamchess has to say about anything?

  27. Good video, but I'm confused why the video is titled as it is when only maybe 60 seconds of it were clips of chess players talking.

  28. The Goal is 10,000 Subscribers before the End of May. Please be sure to subscribe to be an OG Fan of the channel because big plans are coming. Also what video would you want Next?
