  • I believe several things are certain: When the Year 2021 comes to an end, we shall all be celebrating the ongoing and continued growth and interest in Chess; and what many of us will no doubt remember most fondly about Chess shall probably be PogChamps; and what most of us will especially recall about PogChamps will be the ineffable, and the one-and-only, charming and notorious tell-it-like-it-is: QTCinderella ( and her glorious _StoneWall_ ) 🖤🤍🖤🤍🖤🤍🖤🤍 - j q t -

  • Spoiler- On Sardoche’s queen blunder: I feel like this is what happens when you try to learn chess so quickly. You can learn all of the tactics and strategies and mates- but if you haven’t been playing for years, you don’t have anti-blunder engraved in your soul. (When I say blunder, I mean ones where you just give up a piece for completely free and not because of a missed tactic. Like moving your queen to a square a bishop defends, etc.)

Man, this whole story is as american as it gets. Dumbfuckistan really is wild. How do you go to university and think that coffee with milk is *sweet* ffs? And how is it not mandatory to display contents of food items in the US? And why does Starbucks marketing strategy of "just make 'em addicted to sugar" *work* in the US? I have SO many questions...

  • I dont know how I feel about pogchamps. It's nice seeing the streamers I like play chess (a game I like) and it makes a lot of memes, but I feel like only popular people are accepted in to take lessons, not mildly well-known people with actual potential. Take for example poki who is literally only doing it for views and shit. My 9 y/o brother has 700 elo which is higher than pokimane even though she's training with literal gms and has been practicing for a bit now and is DEFINITELY not 9. So mixed feelings

    • @sakiana yeah I guess you're right

      Jameez TheRandomGuyJameez TheRandomGuy2 ай мурун
    • this whole tournament it just for fun to promote the game. nobody is doing it for _the views_ actually most of the contestant's views drop drastically the moment they play chess. as for Poki she has 7,5 million Twitch followers I doubt she needs's or Hikaru's views... *you could've just said you can't stand her and call it a day* well congrats to your 9yo brother I guess, but if he isn't a streamer/youtuber he simply doesn't qualify for Pogchamps.

  • I have to say, I really didn't enjoy the commentary with QTCinderella as a host . Not much input from her in terms of analysis of the games, and she seemed to make Robert's job much more difficult. Maybe it's just me, but I prefer to have 2 chess professionals hosting, or her sense of humor isn't my style... Also, I am not sure how it is a good joke to put WGM next to her name, as getting this title is an extraordinary achievement which not a lot of women completed.
