  1. I remember my first brilliant move freaking out woke up my brother meanwhile this guy just casually doing it

  2. barely watched one minute, and i'm already stunned at how well produced this is. keep up this AMAZING work and production of yours!!

  3. Wow! When can we expect you find the game you are looking for?

  4. Dude killer intro that's some stunning scenery. And the photos and stock video cut in are clean and unobtrusive to the ASMR. I've barely made it to the sponsor (nice transition btw) and I already know this one is gonna be a new favorite

  5. When I saw you in the first seconds wandering in nature with the chess board under your left arm, you remembered me of ReyEnigma, a spanish chess youtuber whose identity is unknown. And as your identity is a mystery to, It would be great if, in the future, you both engage in a match or meet for a video. It would be fun

  6. yess im early! love your videos, no one else does amazing asmr in chess like u. keep it up 🙂

  7. Only you can make asmr out of something Hikaru related, guy is shot out of a cannon

  8. Amazed with the care and effort of the effects and editing in this video! You are amazing man

  9. Your voice seems a bit rougher/deeper in this one?

    I think the video I get the most tingles from is still your Chess in a Smokey Cafe video, it's legendary, perfectly soft spoken

  10. I've seen others say the same thing, this does really feel like one of your older videos; no special lighting or anything fancy, just you and the chess board. Whilst I do love the red/blue lights and cool camerawork, it's nice to have a video like this every once in a while

  11. Amazing intro, the story telling is fantastic and the gravely texture in your voice actually gave me my first genuine ASMR tingling sensation I’ve ever had in the 4 years I’m been watching ASMR great work

  12. takes, takes , takes and if i take and they take it can play out like takes, takes, he takes, takes, takes, takes.

  13. Your voiceover in the introduction absolutely melted my brain. I don't know if it was how close you were to the mic when recording, EQ, or just a different setup, but the super intense bassiness and the high level of detail in the upper frequencies combined with your relaxed and gentle under-the-breath voice is incredible. Whatever you're doing, please don't stop!

  14. So awesome to be part of the channel’s development. Quality all across the board, from audio to video to way of explaining is consistently going up

    Learning a lot while relaxing cheers bro

  15. ngl your voice seems a bit darth sidious in this video XD

  16. Please tell me where I can get your chess board! It looks really nice and have been looking for a quality set

  17. The care you put into each video shows in every little detail. From building in hints/footage at the beginning to experimenting with new graphics: bravo 🙌🏻

  18. It was really 🤯 that game. Also your videos are so good I love your content 👍😊

  19. This game reminds me of the “smack my bishop” game with Tal, but with the queen haha

  20. ASMR Chess put out a bad video challenge (impossible)

  21. It’s a great night to fall asleep to some ASMR Chess!

  22. Not sure why, but you sounded like palpatine from star wars…
    Much prefer the whispered voice

  23. Hi ASMR Chess ❤

    Greetings from Argentina.

    Btw what's your name? How is called the man behind the relaxing voice?

  24. i dont know Where have you been but i am very sure it wasnt denmark 😂

  25. I usually get more tingles out of your whisper videos, but this is just top top notch ASMR. Thank you!

  26. Aren't you in Iceland at the start of the video?

  27. wait.. did i just see a reference to The Search in an asmr chess video? that made me genuinely so happy even if it wasnt intended.

  28. This is one of my favorite games ever played

  29. Have nothing against this videos, but i must admit i enjoy the most, your own gameplay against random people on lichess using chessup board…👀

  30. the knight move threatening m1 was amazing!! I love these videos on famous matches between masters. you explain the moves in a way i can understand and keep up with thank you so much

  31. Iceland is a beautiful country. I stayed a few nights in Selfoss and went to Fischer's grave. It was raining and there was a guy driving heavy farm machinery across the street.

  32. After white's 2nd move, I was hoping for a Budapest, but I was wrong

  33. I am looking forward to the 'perfect chess video'.
    The presentation was amazing.
