  1. This is hilarious! Anish is such a nice guy!

  2. it amazes me how chess grandmasters are so horribly unadaptable when it comes to anything that looks even slightly like chess. your very ability to think has become muscle memory

  3. It's like the most fun videos I ever watched.. Just keep making such videos Hikaru

  4. My favorite part. 9:05 everyone is talking trying to make sense of it and suddenly.😳😂😂

  5. Anish played the Botez gambit: King variation 😂

  6. Anish you got outsmarted and defeated. SHUT UP . Let others play

  7. the next pro tournament …. "if i give the signal, it means i'm loosing. that's when you come in with the food…. make sure it is super hot and that Anish can smell it"

  8. You think you know the botez gambit. This here is the Anish gambit.

  9. Alt title: Curious Giri and smell of good foods

  10. bruh hikaru had to really trick radja🤣🤣👋👋

  11. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  12. this board setups has a potential for accidentally swastikas…

  13. no one literally no one

    Hikarus head


  14. Slightly different rules and experts are like regular people ;P

  15. Oh this Anish guy sounds so nice (I'm honestly new to this whole chess thing so I don't know if he's famous or not). And he has a great conversation with Levy who I think was a bit insecure (?) of not reaching GM level (just a thought after watching him all the time), that convo was really cathartic, my man Levy deserves some love

  16. Собрал русскоговорящих вокруг себя

  17. Raphael Rainer Aerospace Technologies says:

    chess but it's actually a swastika

  18. I wrote a comment about how Hikarus’s pawn structure is terrible(1:21), and his overall position stinks, I accidentally deleted it instead of posting it, so I’m just going to skim over the reasons why. All his Pawns are on dark squares, Hikaru has a dark squared Bishop, this really restricts the movements. Furthermore, his Knight has nowhere to move. However, if someone wanted to move through his ranks it would be quite easy, as both the people to his sides have light squared Bishops. Of course, I did not mention that I’m some dum 200 rated player who has been making an effort to learn for only 2 days. I’m mostly likely missing out on some massive factors that makes Hikaru have a huge advantage in the game, moreover there’s probably some really cool thing that will happen, I just haven’t watched the full video yet.

  19. Radjabov seemed so confused the whole time lmao

  20. It must be called "4 dump smart chess player playing chess for ants"

  21. alternate title, anish and levy get to know each other.

  22. 3:27 Average day in India, IDK if he is living in India, or if the smell was of some Indian food.

  23. Me: Worries about blundering a pawn

    GM's: Hangs king in one
