    2:22 OK, it's a pawn, which go to b5 - no bishop, but WHY white can't hit on c6 with the knight, threatening the queen, and take b5 with the bishop after this??? If there is a reason, I need the explanation.

    “Sorry about that." He should put it on a t-shirt. I hear it in almost every single video. Always after the first move. What's the story with that? What is he apologising for? What is he reaching out for? Where did we come from? Where are we going? Is there a God? These are the answers I would love to know.

    While I enjoyed the game and the video as always, this was one of those rare times on this channel that what we witnessed was not a brilliancy but a stupidity. I think anyone with even just a mediocre rating would have known that Bb7 was horrible, and that Nxf7 would set off a chain reaction that could unfold in many ways. Saying that, though, I really need to brush up on my Caro Kann, as I encounter it many times a week and haven't taken the time to figure out how to respond properly. That's where these fine uploads by everyone's favourite chess commentator really helps.

    #suggestion It's Jimmy vs. Hikaru (again) but the game ended in a stalemate. I think I have not seen some games in your channel that ended in a stalemate, and it's understandable. I also think stalemates are not worthy of attention. But I think this game does because not only Jimmy missed a mate in 1, but he also stalemated Hikaru Edit: added the timestamp to the link

    Great channel and great stories! It cracks me up when you say 'Sorry about that.' because I generally forget you are going to say that. Does anybody know of any famous games where a queen and king go against a rook and king in the end game? There is an elaborate way to win this with the queen and king and there are videos of it, but it would be interesting to see it in real life as it is pretty complicated for somebody such as myself! Thanks for the great videos!
