  1. Fog of war in chess is actually really interesting however as a avid fire emblem fan fog of war is the bane to my existence

  2. The thumbnail makes Hikaru look baked

  3. Bro just did bong smoke to make the fog, and yes I know he didn’t do the bong smoke

  4. February 2023 me commenting even before you started saying things like comment from the future

  5. hikaru looks like theres a spider on his ceiling that every 10 seconds he looks at to make sure it hasnt moved

  6. 69420ELO player: moves on move 1
    Hikaru: predicts checkmate on move 52
    Hikaru: nah mate GG

  7. Levy, I'm currently rank #5 in Fog of War Blitz (2288 rating) (user: LongTermFuture), though I'm only 1700 at regular chess. I'd love to play against a streamer/content creator and help them go from FoW beginner (like you are, no offense) to FoW top player with the whole learning process documented. I imagine this would look like playing me in a series of games with me giving feedback and tips on the moves after each game. I think it would only be a few hours for an IM or similar strong regular-chess player to go from FoW beginner to a FoW top player. Would you be interested? If not, do you have any chess content creator connections you might be able to recommend me to who you think might be interested?

  8. fun fact: technically theres no difference between checkmate and capturing the king, because you can't capture the king until it's checkmate

  9. Take a drink everytime you hear the word "information"

  10. I played fog of war against one of my friends and I completely destroyed him in that mode 😂

  11. Endgame would be a biggest struggle

  12. This makes it easier as beginner to visualize what are my possible moves every move

  13. hikaru really dont wanna admit he lost

  14. pawn appears on edge of visible board
    pawn disappears
    d pawn can no longer see in front of it
    Hmm, I wonder where that pawn went

  15. can't believe you did t sacrifice the rooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooook

  16. I knew it was over when Hikaru activated his serious invisible eyes stare: 8:49

  17. You shouldbe tried to scholar mate


  19. Hikaru looking at the ceiling will never get old 😂

  20. Why is his opponent trash talking so much
    like chuttfu man

  21. "castling is social construct" – it killed me
