Chess Stream #130 LiChess Session. Crazy blitz chess in action! – Grandmaster Chess
DEAR MR.GM GINGER …..the chess world 🌎 knows , everyone from Harry 2 the king to arty, after checkmate is said , put that in ya pipe n smoke it at the party 🥳..appreciate you 🗽🍻
Come on mate, you're getting your arse kicked. Destroy these fools 👍
I like seeing gingergm playing
The 2 knights tactic vs valhalla_sk was lovely. Reminds me why I'll never be a GM. No way would I have seen that with an hour to look at it.
17:46 you missed a mate in one
if I compare your movement of pieces with the mouse to mine, it looks like the pieces are lagging behind the mouse cursor. Is that also the case if you are not streaming? It's like a rubber-band between the piece you're moving and the mouse cursor. You know what I mean?
Very enjoyable games. It has been raining all day here and this video helped me pass my time creatively. You should premove more often, it will help a tone!
You missed mate in one using queen!
I can tell you need a better mouse
You're my favorite chess youtuber. So entertaining to watch you play, drink and comment your games. Your videos are not as instructive as videos from other youtubers, but for me it's kind of motivating to see, that even you as a GM sometimes miss an 'easy' move oder blunder pawns/pieces/mates. Keep up the good work and greeting from Germany!
Simon you missed checkmate in 1 on one of your games when they blundered!
Why no play with 2 sec increment??
I love Simon and the content but the standard seems to have really dropped over the last 10 months or so
Perfect Friday night viewing with a few pints of Guinness.
10 seconds before the money shot it all falls apart. Wish I'd been on the stream. Simon + Blitz + Beer = great craic.
Absolutely 'kin brilliant Simon. Angry chess is like angry sex…the best.
Wanted to say thank you for your stuff on the Dutch. I've just started to go to my local club, and the Classical Dutch just got me through the first round of its annual competition. Now I just have to actually learn the stuff off the course you did with Tiger Hillarp Persson, so I know what to do when they play e4, not d4
Simon, you are proving that chess is a game with no logic lol
@1:22:10 beautiful game and very beautiful mate
Mr. williams. You bring the mystery back to chess.
Simon, that checkmate with the Nc7 / Bd6 Be6 / Nf7 is not a bathtub, it's a hot tub checkmate! LOL
Sweet mother of Jesus! There are some fucking beautiful attacking games in this one! This is the kind of shit that makes Tal pee his pants and suck his thumbs 6 feet under. More, please!
Thanks for sharing the highs and lows. Its very relatable to all of our journeys in chess. Love the Blitz and beer vids. Keep them coming you legend.
1hr 26 minutes yes Simon I am entertained indeed!!! One of the best mates on Lichess live stream!!! ✊👍🏼👏👏👏👏
1:25:50 if you play chess and you got to do that, you've cracked chess. Goddamn it man, that was so beautiful!!! Morphy would be so damn proud! I enjoyed that one..
Hahhhahhhahhhahhhahh, very good stream… Amazing attack, Simon!!!
In the final game when Simon resigned, doesn't g5 mean the queen has to move and the white rook is hanging?
Great entertainment, even when you don't win your games are inspiring!
Simon is oscillating between brilliancy and stupidity. That's how we like it. LoL
Man this poor baby starling was famished
50:37 "i swear, mom. it's a chess video"
Always drink the same amount of beer you did for this video. Some beautiful chess!! hahaha
Are you not entertained?!!! Brilliant stuff
FYI: 'Bjørn' rhymes with 'learn', not 'torn'.
gchess looks brilliant!!
Is there any one else that totally understands what's going on while Simon is explaining. But during a real game I become more befuddled and lost than my current president. Ice cream does make my losses more tolerable though. 😀
Very likeable guy ,, simon u r good man
best video ever dude, u loose with alot of grace man!
what does "losing tempo" mean that you not worried about?
alcohol and chess , hmmm…the more alcohol the more blunders
So damn funny 😂😂😂
Skip the first couple of games and enjoy some beautiful chess.
I am entertained! totally amazing sequence of games. stick in the family album!
