    F DF D4 ай мурун
  • I have seen that mate in Anish bullet stream but due to time out , the game got to draw (insufficient Material) So ideally Wesley should have not moved his piece and after the time goes out . It will be considered as Draw (Due to insufficient Material)

    Akshay Ashok kAkshay Ashok k4 ай мурун
  • 2:16 I never understood this "I quess I can premove". Like recapturing a piece or pawn is always a "safe" premove cuz u already know you are gonna take back the piece if opponent captures. Edit. Also if opponent didnt capture it u basically didnt premove anything, there is no risk premoving recapture.

  • 1:02:25 like duggiedrop commented gave me a new chess game mode idea. You saw Hikaru tried to move knight 4 squards instead 3 squares. Idea: Normal chess with a superpower move!; for example the Knight can jump 1 square further. U can only use the abbility once during chess and every piece gets his superpower abbility.

Now this is more like a fight unlike the lopsided win of Nakamura in their last game .Hahaha It's also somewhat a good feeling to see that even GM's blunder themselves into a scholar's mate. These two are two of the super beasts of speed chess with Magnus, currently reigning as the king of super beasts. Will his reign continue? That is the question. Can't wait to see the SCC finals!
