    I'm a chess noob so I hope someone can explain : At 2:17 agad said black pawn to E5 to threaten the white bishop would be the best move. But couldn't Hafu then just do en passant to lift the threat?

    We have a mate in 4 but she doesnt do it which is ok because she improves her position.... oh right here there is a mate in 3 but he doesnt like that because it ruins the pawn structure but it is alright, the queen is sacrificed and also the bishop which is ok because shr is one whole piece ahead, thanks agad.

    I have a proposal: could you first announce a winning move, then give a hint and only after a hint tell, what sequence of moves it is? That way more low rated chess players will enjoy the "I found it!" feeling.

    #suggestion. I'm not really suggesting a game for analysis, but it would be great to know how many points each player is up in every move, just like in chess.com. Or thumbnails of which pieces each player has lost. It takes time for some of us to pause and calculate the advantages or disadvantages each player has over the other. Also the overall rating of each player would help, in judging who to choose to stick with as the winner of the game, as the game begins.

    Agadmator does try really hard to justify Pogchamps' moves and try to make everyone believe that they are playing at a high level.. Come on man.! Mate in 4, but Hafu doesn't go for this.!! (And then in the video, we are still halfway. And b captures on c3 making sure that Black is not stalemated.! (while you can easily win the game without having to capture that pawn.! In fact just not capturing it allows you to not worry about the stalemate. Thank god that it's over.!

    I don't like the obsession with GM coaches. Sure, when you're 2400, only a GM coach can really advance you, but a good teacher has to explain things in a context that the teachee understands and sometimes a GM is too far ahead or just better at playing than at coaching. What really got her through was hard work and a brilliant mind. She's clearly crazy talented because regular people who train something for 8 hours a day are more prone to ingrain bad habits and don't get that much stronger.

    I really like how our favourite chess commentator calmly goes through the game, never disparaging the players' inferior moves and sometimes outright blunders, but instead pointing out in a teacher's way how to make more optimal choices. If you ever have the privilege of working with such a mentor (in chess or any other endeavour), appreciate what you've been given. Good teachers are uncommon; great ones are rare. And we get a great one here for whatever price we care to pay. Thank you, agadmator.

    At 4:35, after Qd7+ Kf8 e7+ Kg8, you could also promote the pawn first to a rook or a queen; black has to capture with the rook then QxR is mate. Or following your line, after Qd8+ RxQ, you could capture the rook with the pawn and promote to a rook or a queen and it's mate.

    i am amazed! i think this is the first 'serious' video of a beginner-level chess game that i've watched. it's so . . . relatable, i guess. to be honest, there are some moves in GM games that i can see the genius of, but which i would never, never, never be able to find myself. i can understand them after the fact, mostly, but i just could never see that far ahead. i fancy myself a little bit ahead of these competitors, but i can certainly understand them. i guess i think it's possible to learn from low-level and top-level games, one 'pushing' me forward, the other 'pulling' me. thanks, agadmator, for your service to the game.
