  1. The last one was easy but just imagine the pressure he must have had.

  2. In the first game, if Rxa7, afte the 'hoovering' up of blacks pieces, Kxe5 is an even game. Black even has tempo with the knight attacking the bishop and rook attacking A2 pawn.

  3. Carlsen is one of the best players, my point of view is Garry Kasparov is greatest of all time.. vishy carlsen bobby fisher are some of the greatest

  4. Guysss I saw the last one Hahahah even if I’m stoned rn howw

  5. I don't know how, but I found 4 of them. I am literally 1200!

  6. I’m so happy that I got 3 of them, the fact that this kid was in middle school playing godlike moves amazes me!

  7. I guessed the third one correctly as well

  8. Magnus is the greatest chess player of all time, followed by Gary Kasparov and Bobby Fischer

  9. i guessed the last 3 but the first two were amazing

  10. well I guessed 4 out of these but I have just 1500 rating 😄 I think it's more about how you create that position and if you can see that chances earlier. brilliant game in general ❤️

  11. I got 3 examples correct the first was very out of my league and the second one was obvious but I overlooked that there was a bishop.

  12. One of the most annoying things on the internet is when people ask you to like their video and subscribe to their channel. It is even worse when they tell you to not "forget" it or "make sure" to do it.

  13. I saw Qh5+ in example 3. It reminds me of the puzzles I get with my 2200 puzzles rating (even though I'm 1100 rapid.)
    Edit: I also saw the last two. Puzzles do miracles.

  14. New too chess and this is mind-blowing the moves I wouldn't even think of

  15. I just got the app im rated like 600 or something these plays are wild i would never think of these

  16. i can’t believe i got queen h5 rh4 i think i need my gm title now
    edit: i also found qh6 rh8!!!!!!

  17. "Can you spot the move?"

    The thumbnail: I got u bro

  18. The only one I didn’t see, and would have never seen in a million years, is to castle in that spot.

  19. You can never make such a brave statement calling Magnus the best player who has ever lived since we dont know all of the official grandmasters throughout the history of chess not to mention the ones who never played officially.
    There can be someone somewhere in this world stronger that Magnus or even there can be more of such players.
    We cant be sure.

  20. These poor players I never had lost to him before😂😂😂

  21. Last one was the easiest to find for me or probably the only one within 30sec… 😮

  22. tbh, its hard to find the all other moves except the first one.. i easily found that one

  23. I still think Gary Kasparov is still the GOAT

  24. I love Simon’s analysis, so entertaining and informative

  25. Bro magnus" game is brilliant)) Your video brilliant x5

  26. I got all 5 of them correct. Although, one move he did, I would have first moved a rook to take the pawn, which was a waste of a turn, since it was checkmate anyway. The final move was probably my favorite, since I've also done it before. The enemy never considers the pawn to be a threat, but if it blocks off your only diagonal and I have a rook flanking, then it is as good as a bishop.

  27. It’s rumored Magnus planned the last one 10 moves in advance

  28. The third example is the textbook mate in 2 puzzle.
