      What about Qxf6 to that Nxf6? if praggu had traded queens Topalov would have still been up a Knight. Of course it must be some crazy line that loses instantly but still?

    2. NerdWithABow

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="491">8:11</a> why not Qg5? pinning the knight threatening to take h5 and aiming the Rook and threatening Rxf4.

    3. Sombrero man

      "Gibraltar " masters

    4. Sir Sprouts

      I was there playing in the amateurs lol

    5. YT WW_Tim_Riggs_Do

      Kinda wanted to read actual chess comments but everyone is pointlessly saying RIP Kobe on a chess video.

    6. YT WW_Tim_Riggs_Do

      The move with the knight was incredible, you have to so sure that it’s not gonna cost you the game.

    7. Vinodkumar GB

      Wow Topalov is a veteran and this kid took him down in style! Hope another Anand for india in future :) thanks agadmator ♥

    8. Alexis Patricio

      nice win

    9. Bernard Ding

      Am I the only one who skips videos till the end to see the results

    10. Mark Villasin


    11. rj vasquez

      That quotes makes me adore you more

    12. Sangar Sarkawt

      #suggestion Please Mr. Radiç , do the Tal game v Uwe Boensch 1974 in Halle germany , the game is famous by Tal's mad rook thanks in advance

    13. George Asuncion

      Man, i miss Kobe again😥

    14. Krazy Lobster

      Topalov has been playing some very weird games lately

    15. Anthony Hana

      Thanks for the Kobe quote

    16. Jakub Jabłoński

      The Nf6+ move was one of a few I was thinking about. I'm almost a GM 😄😎

    17. lakshman ganesh balakumar Checkmate series The Blender games.

    18. DrainRequiem Animations

      Dude honestly thank you for paying your respects to Kobe. I probably know all basketball fans are crushed by the loss and me, (not being a basketball fan, and only know the Kobe meme) really sad because his daughter died in the crash too

    19. Emre Geylani

      About that Kobe header... you're classy as usual my friend, well played.

    20. Happy

      Poor dog got lonely :)

    21. adam simpasa

      Sorry for Topalov this lose is bitter than the Kasparov immortal!?

    22. Josiah Brush

      I didn’t realize Praggnanandha’s first name is Young.

    23. ivan montes

      A quien le importa Kobe? Anda a un sitio de básquet, algún triste día cuando se muera uno de los nuestros.

    24. Im gay since Im responding to your comment but ,

      The engine without a doubt approves of your quote choice #24 #8

    25. Fuoriclasse

      That is not a Kobe Bryant quote.

    26. D1G1TAL FOX


    27. Alan Bright

      Where is your dog? Make a video on him

    28. remainconfident1

      There’s nothing...nothing to do here.

    29. Drone Druid

      I'm listening on headphones and the audio seems weird on this one: rapid panning.

    30. thiagox hernandez

      Love that Kobe quote. Rest in paradise

    31. Maurice Mori

      What happened to puppy?? ... ahh, there he is <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="681">11:21</a> !! :~)

    32. Flaming Firo

      This guy is explaining his sarcasm

    33. Ian Waithaka

      Have you guys seen Agad's information on Wikipedia? Glorious stuff

    34. Allauddin

      Praggo's interview with Tanya after match

    35. Toothmother

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="345">5:45</a> A sip of some "clear" substance. <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="498">8:18</a> 2nd sip of this "clear" substance.

    36. Shawn Roberts

      Thoughtful quote, Antonio. We Americans appreciate it!

    37. Ian Dog

      I just want to get a wet cloth and wipe Praganagandhdanahahnsas face, does the guy never bath?

    38. Yvan Giovanetti

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="635">10:35</a> Rg1 would be a great blunder in that position ^^ (because after that you get Rc2+ Ke1 Rc1+ Kf2 Rcxg1). I guess that Topalov was still hoping this miracle before he resigned ^^

    39. Harsh Patwardhan

      4th victory against 2700+ rated GM by Pragnananda, amazing stuff, still, way to go champion.

    40. Cecília Moraes

      Plis, GM Evandro Barbosa in Gibraltar vs Topalov or another

    41. Aditya Unni

      I was pleasantly surprised by noticing Kobe's quote up there. RIP.

    42. 24fps

      Who do you think will be stronger at age 25, Firouzja, Praggnanandhaa or Kaymer?

    43. Theo Kh

      This is the beauty in chess. It's anyone's game. No matter age nor gender

    44. Mike bueskens

      I can see How Kobe was a big loss for Sports world. I cant See How millions even children die every day and no one gives a damn

    45. Lawrence Lepes

      Nice quote by Kobe Bryant. May he rest in Peace!

    46. Shantorey Wilkins


    47. Rick rick

      After the game Topolov asked to replay it because he wasn’t ready when it started but the little cheater refused

      Impervious. That is some vocabulary you got there:) You are the only chess channel I watch. Thanks so much for your excellent and astute analyses.

    51. Place holder

      Don't you like the French defense ? and if so what's your favorite e4 or d4 response/defense ?

    52. John Marston


    53. Alex Murray

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="34">0:34</a> did you not get my note?

    54. Requinix17

      Kobe Bryant was like the Derek Jeter of basketball. So sad, life can be gone in the blink of an eye. He deserved more, and had so much more left to give

    55. L vijaykumar

      Great Victory by Rising Star GM Pragnananda . He has Ability to Became World Champion. All the Best Praggu.

    56. Requinix17

      Always good to be on the lookout for when you can force tripled pawns blocking all the other pieces from the defense of the king!

    57. Keval Patel

      #suggestion can you make a video on the game from round 1 pragg vs nandhidhaa fro giblater masters....

    58. black & blue 86

      Hi agadmator, I really enjoy your videos, your analysis is very good, it shows that you're a great player. May I request? I like Mikhail Tal, hope you make a lot of tal's game. Thank you, I just hit the subscribe button btw :)

    59. parsa fakhar

      goddamn who is this Nathan?

    60. Uranus

      When did you get your brace off?

    61. Dragon Captain

      Hey Agad! Found a game that was very intriguing that I think you should analyze. It's also a great game, its Magnus Carlsen at age 29 (on his app) vs. Stockfish 10. Here's the link to the video:

    62. Thinh Nguyen

      Rip kobe.

    63. Joy Laurie

      #suggestion Can you please consider Nezhmetdinov Saga and Tal Saga covering all their memorable games?

    64. trollpeis

      Praggna for the WIN! :-)

    65. David Liske

      Love the Kobe quote thanks for the homage!

    66. Nikhil Chehal

      Topalov was out of his preparation when Pragg played Bf2 and pragg said that he was not expecting the french defence so pragg played all over the board with his previous preparations.

    67. Brian Manley

      God bless you for throwing that Kobe quote up.

    68. Dylaina Fiebing

      Life got crazy and I hadn’t watched one of your videos in a while. A nice video to return to. Thanks!!

    69. Samuel Alleyne

      Great quote, major respect!!

    70. Jack F

      Topalov gifted him this game lol

    71. Viki M

      I hope you cover the next game where Pragg lost as well

    72. Pranav Srikar

      That Kobe quote.😭

    73. Đăng Khương Nguyễn

      Thanks agadmator for using a Kobe quote. RIP

    74. Nathan Gilger

      hey agadmator do you stream anywhere? youtube, twitch, other?

    75. Mitchell Houston

      R.I.P. Kobe & his daughter! Plus all the unfortunate victims! Tragic.

    76. Adam Rieckel

      The Kobe Bryant quote is very appropriate, he was great and you're the best Agadmator!

    77. Pelida Duli

      it must hurt to lose against that little punk

    78. OudPlayerHBY

      What a weak game by Topolov..very strange for a former +2800 and number one in the world...

    79. Jayanth Kumar

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="225">3:45</a> why can't the knight take bishop

    80. one1022

      Really like that you used that Kobe quote. 👌
