  1. i think some smartass in some high place is gonna make a rule for the bongcloud not to be played in a tournament. Sometimes a little fun never hurt anyone.

  2. I tried this with my friend and my chess board just blasted

  3. Imagine Duda would bongcloud against naka 😆

  4. And it was at this position at move 6 that both player agree to draw, you think that there a somthing, but in reality there isn't. both magnus and hikaru know this. They didn't play the evans gambit or b4. Here you have it. Thank you so much watching this and see you soon.

  5. It's so nice to see both OG legends of chess having fun, i love it

  6. Some say Chess players don’t have a sense of humor. This is evidence of the contrary.

  7. When you download clash of Titans but this is the real game

  8. If only all wars would be solved between the kings with no other casualties

  9. Bongcloud defense against the bongcloud attack

  10. God I hate commentators so much. Just let the moment happen. You dont have to follow up with YEA AND ITS GREAT CONTENT FOR PLAYERS TO BE LAUGHING ITS VERY NICE TO SEE YES THEY ARE HAPPY

  11. Bongcloud can be good to get a good pawn structure and protect your queen.

  12. How to take people out of well studied openings? This.

  13. Magnus Carlson offers you the blunt.
    Do you accept?

  14. i fucking love that hikaru and magnus are actually brochachos. fucking right.

  15. no matter how much of a nerd you are, it's important to remember

    it's just a game. have fun.

  16. I LOVE how Hikaru laughs the first time, then laughs AGAIN when he realizes Magnus isn’t trying to reset the kings to actually start the game and instead moves the king for the third time

  17. It is called the Bong Cloud attack because it's definetly not a defense.

  18. Got back into chess cause of andrew tate. Stayed for bongcloud

  19. After hundred years of chess finally we reached this moment of greatness

  20. This is just funny man HAHAHAHA just the memes

  21. I love how happy Hikaru Nakamura and Magnus Carlsen look when they played that. It's so refreshing to see them both take a laugh instead of looking so serious and stone cold. This is truly a refreshing one.

  22. 1000y from now they will still debate this game.

  23. Well Hikaru and Magnus played that opening in a tournament

  24. this is like 2 kings at the very top making a very firm handshake

  25. Being a newer chess player, I absolutely LOVE this being called the bongcloud opening. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  26. Love how both Magnus and Hikaru do the bongcloud opening and they both laugh together

  27. Fun fact: A retired StarCraft 2 pro player by the name of uThermal adapted the "bongcloud" opening to StarCraft 2, a real-time strategy video game. It entails choosing the Terran (human) race, whose buildings can fly, and then at the start of the game lifting up your main base and flying it over to the position where you would typically take a base much later in the game, which basically just puts you way behind and in a terribly exposed position.

  28. I love that the world of chess has a move called "the bongcloud", it is perfect.

  29. This is 2 of the currently best players around just BS-ing on the board with spectators


  30. ngl this is the most wholesome chess clip of all time

  31. here goes that saying again:
    when chess is played perfectly, it ends in a draw.

  32. This was the last round of a qualifier, and both Magnus and Hikaru would've qualified no matter what. This game had no point, so they made it have a point. True gold.
