  • This chess thing has really picked up in the last few years. I like how they took an online game and made the pieces and stuff so it could be played in real life.

  • For those who don't know why he won, he won because he forced a queen trade with his last move in the game, clearing the way for his last remaining pawn (white) to be promoted to queen before Magnus' last remaining pawn could. Never underestimate the danger of a far-advancing pawn.

  • In 17 minutes they both had to think about their decisions more than me in my whole life

  • 7+ months after this game, Nodirbek and his young team of Uzbekistan made a history in Chennai by obtaining gold medal of the Olympiad. The team did not loose throughout any of the 11 rounds, where more than 2500 GM's were competing from around the world.

  • You can see the stress slowly begin to set in. The kids damn good

  • The moment when you reach the end of the video, then rewind to realize it's all been about that pawn from the beginning or at least the middle. The whole game was pressing the advantage and moving that one pawn to that last row, there was not a moment when it wasn't protected. A true war of attrition at the end, wearing down his time so he had to rush his moves. Incredible

  • Meeting an actual legend is a once in a life time opportunity. But beating one, at 17 and not even cracking a celebratory dance after that handshake? Love this kid.

  • I love the game of chess. As one who doesn’t fully comprehend the game, it’s still truly art. The meaning behind the game itself is what fascinates me and to see this footage was like watching a movie. A young Prince vs a reigning King. The endgame was INSANE!

  • Congrats Uzbek Champ 🇺🇿🇺🇿🇺🇿

  • It’s amazing how they play the future rather than the present. I kept questioning their moves and then realized why they didn’t take pawns at risk of losing queens. Very well played.

  • Amazing end-game!

  • Nodirbek Abdusattorov is from Uzbekistan 🇺🇿🇺🇿🇺🇿🇺🇿

  • Is not the first time this kid has given Magnus so much trouble, this time he won instead of a draw. Amazing talent

  • He already calculated 1,732,690 paths to victory before Magnus even sat down.

  • An absolute instant classic of a game.

  • This game is so engaging tactically speaking, it should be archived in the Chess University

  • I feel like his opening gave him an edge as it created some uncertainty. Then he made sacrifices to enable his pawn progress which his opponent didn't realize very early. I think the 17 year old was further ahead in his thinking.

  • What a play! The best performance for many year! Thank you so much for that video! Merci!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • the end game was crazy, he defended his own pawn while simultaneously attacking the king AND the black pawn while forcing a position which carlsen wasnt too happy to end in. really phenomenal.

  • We,THE UZBEK, are very proud of this guy,a future king of
