  1. Why didnt u capture the king with the rook in the 2nd game like huh

  2. Can we please see some engines play this version? I'd love to see computers devise the least calculate-able openings where half the game is not verses bot deliberately trying to hide their pieces.

  3. These guys are just too smart – I honestly can’t even comprehend how hikaru is processing all that

  4. “But I didn’t have that information” yeah that’s kinda the whole point

  5. Game 2 move 25 why didnt levy capture the king?

  6. You can almost hear Hikarus brain thinking

  7. Reveal plays are much more important in this variant

  8. NOW Mr. 光る can't just be like "takes takes takes takes takes GG yo"

  9. I wonder how this would work if I used a Phantom Chess Board to play this . Would your pieces register and move on the board in front of me

  10. 1:20 Hikaru's face goes from "he'll never know what hit him" to "WTF just happened?".

  11. I saw Hikaru look up and started to think and I knew the game was over

  12. 8:49 When you realize you've been studying for the wrong test the whole weekend:

  13. At first I saw Levy at 1500 and was like Pepe da Frog but then I saw Hikaru at 1400 at fell in a coma. But then I realized it was variants… so you start from 400…

  14. The fact that I had this idea decided it was dumb and disregarded it and it’s an actual thing

  15. 11:22 AM I MISSING SOMETHING???? why didnt he take the king?

  16. Levy: I think your pieces are on-

    Hikaru: That’s alot of information, because pf that I can checkmate you in 12 moves in this position

    Only in the Fog Of War chess variant

  17. i think in this mode you could actually castle to escape when your king is threatened

  18. 11:25 – "B be B be becau.. because like pause B, I mean the reason I the reas… be because I, I because if im right that I know I can reach an endgame I know that I'm winning, that that's why I, I would I woul I Æ if you didn't have the rook " GM Hikaru 23.9.2020 🙏😔

  19. levy just screaming in his top of his lungs

  20. i would trade queens on the enemy side because you can see all the enemy pieces where you traded
