  1. "Pawn to A4" two seconds later "I think I'm going to do the best today" xD

  2. lol again this is why they fired ned not because of cheating scandal. ned beat them in almost everything and they literally ousted their rival

  3. It looked like Kurt was trying different strategies/systems with each person, I don't know a lot about chess, but It looked like Kurt kind of did the London system with Eugene because of how their first move was

  4. omg is that kurt hugo schneider????? not only is he a music prodigy, he’s also a chess prodigy???? holy shit

  5. Tied a chess master but tried to shake hands with a blindfolded man

  6. Bro really said he's like a knight because he's tricky 💀

  7. Ned: “the knights are strong and ‘tricky’ just like myself.”

    That didn’t age well

  8. How unfortunate, this was one of my favourite videos

  9. Lol thats how Eugene acts if he is not the best at something for ONCE IN HIS LIFE

  10. Wait how was Keith's game checkmate like he could've taken the queen then the knight

  11. Pawn to A4 on the first move was genuinely painful to hear 💀

  12. I love the try guys however I am so not happy with Ned being in past videos still. But I can't expect them to wash him out of every video ever that's crazy. It was hard enough for them to get him out of the videos that already pre- recorded.

  13. "They're tricky, very much like myself" lmao

  14. this aged like spoiled milk-

    for those who don't know, they can't do this show anymore because it's not 4-1, it's 3-1

  15. "YAS QUEEN!"
    "Oh no Queen~!"
    My most fav lines ever LOL

  16. Still wondering a year later if cute Yale chess Kurt is single (I'm 21, I can cook, clean, and bake very well, I'm arguably smart enough to hold conversation, but still dumb enough to be entranced and amazed by intelligence)

  17. Eugene and Zach’s little side convos in the videos make me laugh so hard 😂

  18. How did kurt checkmate Keith could king,not take queen,the queen wasn’t covered by anything

  19. keith: opens with A4

    also keith: i think i’m gonna do the best today

  20. about 9:45he wasnt even m2(Mate in 2)he couldve had moved the rook to f1 and f2 queen wouldnt be possible because of rxf2 hell go bxf2 and you take the bishop with the king and in the end of all that youre even up material for that attack,but he probably wouldnt have moved the queen to f2 sooo yeah

  21. I'm not even attracted to men but him playing chess while blindfolded is incredibly sexy

  22. Now let's see if THREE guys can beat a blindfolded chessmaster

  23. King: Please, I- I just want to love you.

    Queen of the enemy kingdom: I… Can't even see you. assasinates him

    Groundbreaking storytelling. I'll be needing the full mini-series on this premise, with this particular scene bringing the climax. Please, and thank you, Keith.

  24. 6:40 So, he hasn't even breathed, stepped, blink, etc. more than 2,000 times

  25. Fun fact, One Night in Bangkok is a song about chess

  26. Kurt being a musical genius and not knowing of a single song about chess when there's an entire chess musical is almost as crazy as him being a chess master

  27. I dont like try guys i dont watch too many videos but i love this video

  28. I didn't know kurt is a chessmaster !! I only know him for his music 🥺
