Can Martin Beat Stockfish with FORTYSEVEN Queens?

Hope everyone’s having a swell week so far 😀 Today, we are going to be giving the Martin Bot 47 (?!) queens to work with against Stockfish NNUE. Will Stockfish be able to survive this?

Enjoy and let me know if you have any feedback or video ideas! Cheers to everyone!!

Game setup: Stockfish 15 is playing White, running @ 30 depth. I used chess.com analysis board for White’s moves, since unfortunately this custom position crashed the user interface that I normally use XD

  1. This bot needs this many queens to win?! It's common sense each turn he may kill 1 figure sacrificing 1 queen. He doesn't even need to play. It's pure math. 1 queen-bomb at a time, he'll kill everything. 0 need of tactic. It would work even with 15 queens. Each queen kills each figure. Even losing them all but 1 would be a win.

  2. Martin when he doesn't take the rook:
    "I think there's a better move in this position"

  3. what was martin thinking when he didn't take the pawn bruv? 3:20

  4. can somebody say why white turned their pawn into a knight

  5. Dang, Stockfish out here re-enacting the French Revolution

  6. I don’t know how I got here, what is Martin?

  7. can we talk about stockfish promoting its pawn to a knight?

  8. Martin appears to have recieved a severe brain trauma at some point in his past, what a trooper

  9. Why does Martin have a nationality?
    And is that the Bulgarian flag?

  10. Came for the title, stayed for the music.

  11. i wish you ran it straight without the extra pawns for stockfish

  12. I don’t know what is harder. Beating Stockfish or losing to Martin. Both things are virtually impossible

  13. I don't understand this, shouldn't black be able to just pile his queens down on white until nothing is left?
    What holds him back, he can just throw queens at white and even if he only takes one figure per move and then loses a queen, he'd still have enough pieces left over.

  14. No, there is NO WAY to lose with that many queens. I don't buy it.

  15. Imagine how powerful Martin actually is if he wasn't attempting to lose all the time…

  16. Martin would absolutely destroy at the giveaway chess variant

  17. Rooks running over his army of queens.
    Martin: Haha time to make half dozen nothing moves

  18. It's not making smart moves so this game is bs

  19. Pretty sure Martin never misses a m8 in one.

  20. is that rly stockfish? cuz move 54 went wrong

  21. I think he moves the pieces based on stockfish. Not played exacly what Stockfish will play…

  22. How do you guys always get the easy martin bot? Every time i play him for shits n giggles he never ignores a hanging piece, and he always goes for checkmate

  23. Literally all he had to do was just brute force take each piece one at a time row by tow eith the queens. It seems it was coded to intentionally not even try.

  24. to hang a checkmate in 5, and not a checkmate in 4

  25. Martin is so stupid that he didn't see the fork on the queen and king

  26. I don't know which one is martin😂😂😂

  27. Martin's king moves look a lot more reasonable than the queen moves here.

  28. The outcome of the thumbnail game was obvious. The next one is just pain, it's like playing against the total war ai, just runs around doing pointless crap while the human kills it.

  29. Чушь. Просто разменивать фигуры и все.

  30. I like how Stockfish had to pick a knight over a queen to allow Martin to make a bad move. Had he picked a queen, Martin wouldn't have had a choice but to capture it.

  31. Is Martin Bot trying to loose? A painful watch either way

  32. Ok why didnt all the queens take the unprotected white rook . I saw 3 or 4 tomes that ot refised to take the rook.

  33. Hi everyoneee!!!! Just want to thank you all tremendously for checking out this video – we now broke 1 MILLION VIEWS!!!!! You all give me so much motivation to keep going. And your comments have been hilarious 😆😆

    Also, just to answer some of your most asked questions:

    1. HOW TO SET UP THE MATCH

    Go to https://www.chess.com/analysis and set up whatever crazy position you want to face Martin against. Then you just need to click on the bullseye button in bottom right corner. And from this screen, click on the computer icon in bottom right corner to select the bot you wish to play!

    2. WHY STOCKFISH IS DRAGGING PIECES

    This is just me playing the moves out from Stockfish, which I had running on another screen. I cut out time between moves when Stockfish is thinking. This process is beginning to be more automated – check out recent video (Stockfish 15.1 playing 1. f3) if interested to see this 😀

    3. WHY STOCKFISH IS 1600

    This is just the ELO the account I created started at. I now just use inspect element to change the ELO to be 3700+ XD

    Thank you all so much for your time. I will get back to all of your comments today – currently working on a unique and fun Martin challenge video, hopefully updated by day’s end 😀

    Cheers to everyone!!!!
