  1. I like this Board and pieces. What a software is this?

  2. No pieces was harmed during the production of this video…

  3. 3:20 I'm not a good chess player, but I don't understand how 3 of the 4 bishops found it sensible to return to their starting positions. :I

  4. Despite chess White advantage, I intuitively saw the concession as inevitable. I think they are both not chess legends, and that's maybe what gave the opportunity for the exercise as you say and then not much more before the to me inevitable end. Racist? Maybe. What are some measurements of strength for Spanish chess masters vs. Russian chess masters? Surely Spain is behind. By a lot? Or more than a lot?

  5. I don't get to play chess very often anymore but man I love your channel. Good work friend

  6. great chess players think 5 steps ahead.

  7. Why do the white give up, it is so far from losing

  8. I had the privledge of being trashed by Korchnoi as part of a simul he played against our chess club back in 1978.

  9. No pieces were captured in making of this videos.

  10. HOW on earth did I know the player in the photo was Gligoric!? Your subversive photo challenges seem to pay off.

  11. Instead of Qa7, could it be possible for white f4? that should block the fork right? probably I'm missing something but looks fine to me (there would be pieces taken though)

  12. You pronounce Svetozar Gligoric's name like a native!?

  13. This is like a kids movie where nobody can die, but you still have to have action.

  14. Wow the board looks so messy with all the pieces still on there. What a curious game!

  15. So it looks to me that he went wrong when he exposed his queen to danger before any trades.
    What should have have moved instead of Qf3? 3:36

  16. I thought the match would end with a smothered mate.

  17. I was also impressed by the fact that Medina didn't seem to make any blunders (at least that I could see).

  18. A video where I finally can't hear the word "capture capture"

  19. Barclay resigned the couch precisely when Garcia resigned the game!

  20. No pieces were captured when bobby fischer didnt show up.

  21. at 5:08 queen could have captured at a6 and pressured d6 in exchange for his knight. Losses some material and positioning, but it's a lot stronger and more aggressive than what he played

  22. Still… No one can beat my record that no pieces were eaten until 44 moves at the grandmaster in a chess app…. I won on that game and I took a screenshot of it…

  23. 4:30 – White could have defended by pushing pawn to f4 instead of escaping with the queen

  24. Poor game by Antonio Garcia. Not worth showing in agad channel.

  25. Beat your opponent without touching the board!

    it's called a baseball bat

  26. Absolute Non Violence.
    Resigned before anybody was killed…!!!
