    If both play a weird opening, Magnus will win. If Magnus plays a normal opening, and his opponent plays a weird opening, Magnus will win. However, if Magnus plays a weird opening, and his opponent is a grandmaster who plays a normal opening… well, I guess Magnus will still win.

      @squanchy squanch for sure, since i made the post i found when i want to play a 'real' game i do rapid 10 minute, and if im like waiting on friends or something thats when i do bullet/3minute/5minute but yea, i definitely noticed 10 minute is my sweet spot haha. I almost hit 800 today in rapid but lost a couple, so sitting around 775. Blitz/Bullet are around 550 or so?

      @ctrain beats play longer games so you have more time to think about your moves. 10/15 rapid, 10 rapid or 30 rapid. Blitz is fun (and I don’t touch bullet lol) but pretty crap for your development as a chess player. And play puzzles when you can. Once you are more familiar with solid moves/countering what your opponent is doing it’ll become second nature and that’s when you can start to become proficient in the speedy games. My blitz rating is crap compared to my rapid/daily rating though (blitz 500 ish, rapid floating around 1000-1100), as I’m pretty bad with time management and blunders in the quick games.

      @garmateyNot really, seen matches where it's happened, it's an advantage for sure, since they can't really attack anymore, but it's actually sometimes harder to win because of that. If they're down they have to attack so there's more space and the loss of men leaves huge openings, but if it's a nil nil game when that happens, decent chance it just ends that way

      @Oliver True, one wouldn't necessarily be, but given that it was actually about four and he was giving up a 6 move tempo advantage before actually playing it's pretty ridiculous
      If that was two 2700s was playing the other wins that game 90+% of the time, short time control or no
      That's about the odds of winning a football match 3 up
      2-0 would be around 70% so even that feels too low for me

      This is not all that unusual. Typically when someone has become undisputed #1 in something and in a casual setting, they give themself some sort of disadvantage to keep engaged with the game rather than doing what is conventional and allowing their mind/skills to rust. Of course in a serious tournament setting they only do this rarely as it's disrespectful to the opponent in that setting.

      @Sommy Nriama no the video says that creator thinks it was probably somebody else using an engine, even though in this video kzclip.org/video/E1YkxPohB_I/бейне.html he talks about how it was early days way back in 2001 and nigel quizzed his opponent and felt 99% positive it was in fact fischer.. nigel was destroyed 8 out of 8. and regardless, it makes absolutely no difference who the person in that video was or whether they used an engine or not because my point is that magnus was _certainly_ aware of the 8 game series between "fischer" and nigel short, and he did not "improvise" anything, he 100% used the same opening that "fischer" used in game 2, with the only difference being that "fischer" was playing with white, and then the rest of the game magnus just did what magnus just does, because well, hes magnus. to ever claim that he wasnt previously aware of those games or that opening, or that he somehow "improvised" it and just so happened to match it _exactly_ is to point to ones own ridiculously high degree of ignorance and gullibility. and anybody with such a childlike willingness to believe absolutely anything they see online, really needs to get ahold of me soon because i have a few bridges for sale in brooklyn and i would hate for them to miss out on such an amazing opportunity.

      @jchud13 The simplest principles are to develop your pieces (put them on good squares), control the center, keep your king safe. Then it's a combination of tactics (finding a concrete series of moves that wins material/ gives checkmate/ etc), and strategical play (making long-term decisions that improve your position).

I obviously know its a very deep game and beyond like killing the enemy king and getting more of your opponents pieces then losing your own what is the general goal? Position yourself out of danger always unless a trade is necessary? Position your defenses until you can go for an attack? Like I like chess but high level I just cannot follow it

    Magnus: C3
    Magnus at the same time: We threatened the mate! It's very hard to protect. A little tactic - now you resign, boy!

    I truly believe Magnus plays these weird openings and positions to get in his opponents head, and see if he can play out positions that really aren’t possible in regular play

      Magnus won, I believe his opponent resigned as Magnus had checkmate on the next move. Either that or his opponent lost on time.

    I can hear the horn, and I can hear it breaking. I can feel the rohirrim's fury flow in theirs blood.

    Anyone know why Magnus didn’t take the pawn on D3?
    Second question: when Magnus could’ve promoted and potentially taken a rook, why did he wait? Was there a checkmate there without his queen on that file?
    Also was queen h4 check, take rook, then promote a bad move?
