Nakamura can't see a fucking winning move for white. Few moves later.... Black blunders +4.8, White is winning. Carlsen: "My loyal servants.....OBLITERATE HIM!!!!" * Nakamura resigned *

  • Hey Levy, I think it would be a really nice idea for a furure video to teach how to set up certain tricks like Greek Gift, traps and those kind of things, great content btw, lots of love from Uruguay.

  • Hello Gotham Chess! Hope you're reading this comment. I saw the whole video and noticed how you tried making little jokes like how Magnus was in the illuminati because of his pawn structure. I personally liked it and got few good chuckles from your jokes. I think it would be better if, after you said a joke, you could maybe edit the video and make it as a meme only for like a second or two and then get back to explaining. For example after saying how Magnus is in the illuminati because of his pawn structure, the video could be edited and have a little illuminati triangle right where the pawn structure is and have the illuminati theme song playing in the background for like a second or two. I personally believe it would make your videos more entertaining to watch (not saying it isn't already). I love your videos and I love that you put the time and effort into explaining almost every move to help me and other viewers understand the thought process of why those moves were made. Even when you feel sick you still pull through for us. Keep it up man! We appreciate everything you do! [Here is the time stamp from what I was referring to earlier 28:36]

    • @alguien ok, and the king can't go to a light square bc of bishop fork. But what about Kf6 instead of Kd8?
