  1. i all most fell asleep but it was good

  2. I don't like blitz chess, the players can seldom make really deep moves. But this game is really beautiful!

  3. This is probably my favorite game of chess from the last twenty years or so. Grischuk is also one of my favorite chess players, this game probably sparking a lot of that.

  4. Wow h4 is such a nice subtle move.. No minor or major piece threats or forks etc, just a pawn move to threaten an unstoppable mate in one threat. Deadly. Course, I doubt grischuk saw all this when he played e5 and sacked the rook, it was just mvl who got outplayed after that since it was blitz after all, ni way is the rook sac sound, but it doesn't need to be in blitz. Bravo grischuk! First time I seen the queen mate threat into check and then recapture into connected pawn mate..

  5. Interesting note, even if the black g and h pawns aren’t there, it’s still mate haha

  6. What if MVL plays queen f5 to g4. Then there is no pawn capture to check the king.

  7. When Grishchuk played Rooke to d1, I guess Maxime should’ve played bishop to d7

  8. He had probably played that position before and he knew it could work on a blitz game

  9. Ok. Ok. No more sarcasm out of me. There is clearly no benefit for me to communicate online. I'll just watch and enjoy. Cheers.

  10. I don't think the mate pattern is that hard to think of – knight bolted down on f6, one rook already on the eighth rank, and the locked f7-g6-h5 structure all immediately suggest the possibility.

    Interesting, though, that none of Grischuk's plan needed to rely on the f4-f5 push which is so typical of the Grand Prix. I tend to think of the Grand Prix as a one-trick pony in structural terms, so it's good to see that it isn't.

  11. Mayne grischuck had an engine in his lipstick

  12. Wow 😮. Now I know why Grischuk has won the blitz world championships THREE times!!!!

  13. Grischuk is my favorite active chess player.. such fun to watch 😁😁😁

  14. My god this is the most epic game I have ever seen! THANK YOU AGADMATOR!!!

  15. Agadmator sounds the coolest saying "checkmate", like there's no other actor celebrity or any human being alive that can say that word and have that robotesque feel with Agadmator's checkmate hahaha. and speaking of robot, grischuk just straight hammered this because not even grandmasters could see his intent, like wtf he's like a robot, and in so little time.

    edit: sorry for the awkward "hahaha"

  16. 3:58 knight takes h7, king takes knight, rook takes Bishop, king moves to? Queen to h3 is coming?????

  17. I found out taking with pawn is actually main line Agamator, as it is main line classical not draco thou

  18. ..or rather instead of avoiding check by moving king 2 early which breaks the principal, y not MvL go 4 f5 (does he know Leaner)

  19. Can you friend me on

    My username is “buttbumpingbodhi”

  20. after RxB why did he play KxR?. When Bb7 saves the game….. I think…..

  21. When I was young,I would sacrifice my queen because I didn't like it

  22. i remember rubinsteins immortal game my favorite game with this. thanks agad

  23. Thats why magnus says grischuk is a 'perfectionist' .

  24. That was a good movie😊
    Thanks Agadmator.
