  • 1:20:46 honestly idc what anyone says in my heart, knights are better than bishops they are op if u want forks they can attack the queen without being attacked back they can hop pieces they can make a upside-down L in their movements respresenting waluigi and waluigi is op

  • It's funny because they were surprised when he said that he was training 12 hours a day to get good at chess. I can't wait to see their faces when they will discover his training for videogames. He has been tryharding League of Legends for years and it ruined his personal life at some point because of the awful community, and the fact that he was taking too much tasks to handle. Im happy for his win. And it's great that he decided to pause his carreer on chess. Sardoche si tu lis ça, tu as step up de fou mentalement ça c'est vu direct, j'ai adoré ta participation au tournoi. Je suis content que tu sois plus épanoui dans le stream et le reste, il est vrai que tu faisais de la peine il y a quelques années sur l'autre jeu de mort. GG en tout cas, et bon courage pour la suite !

Getting off topic is ok every once in a while but the guy just constantly does it. Really like the way that Bobby Hess does his commentary or there has to be somebody else. Not Levy or Anna either see them enough on Hikaru's stream

      shifu lodashifu lodaАй мурун
    • Yeah especially in blitz with so little time left. I'm only learning lesson this now that I've had some games where my opponents move their king to the corner after I make that edge pawn capture with my bishop. And it's surprisingly difficult to follow up on the attack even though you have a protected piece right next to their king.
