    Yes!!! One of those positions that gets closed, and where one move will break the whole thing open into many losing possibilities for the opponent.

    12:29 - Why can't Giri take the pawn on B6?

    Always feels good when you find the winning move a GM finds

    12:35, queen on b6 is a better move or not?

  • Anton Heinsbroek

    @12:43 After Ra8, white queen can capture pawn on b6? (more room than indicated by agadmator?).

  • Dimsiasios !
    Dimsiasios !

    I am editing this, queen captures b6 does not work because queen gets trapped sorry

    2:55 How about Bxf3 instead of qxd1 ? That way black gains more material (please correct me if I am wrong)

    After bishop b8 what if tari plays queen d6? It defends the rook and also pawn at e5. Is this playable. Please answer.

  • badmandede

    Queen is not trapped ... Qxb6 since it's not defended

  • Debasish Ray Chawdhuri

    12:36 If Ra8, then Qxb6 seems okay for white.

    Why are you allways adjusting volume? :D Or what does that "sorry bout dat" mean? :D

  • TheDool0ne

    What an amazing game. Defending well and using the material for a winning attack. Tari probably never plays that sacrifice again.

  • Car Bomb
    Car Bomb

    This is now one of my favorite games of all time. Giri really channeled his inner Petrosian here. Untouchable position from start to finish.

  • Qalidurut

    Giri's games are so much fun to watch

  • ask

    Capture capture capture capture capture capture capture ......wow

  • Yadasampati

    12:33 Give up the queen? Why not win a pawn instead with Qxb6?

  • Yadasampati

    11:33 How about Qd6?

  • ygg drasil
    ygg drasil

    6:00 Why didn't Tari sac the g pawn with g2 which forces Kxg2? That would create an open file for Black to occupy with his Rook with Rg8+ or 0-0-0 followed by Rag8+

  • Misteribel

    0:07 'the other Norwegian'? Anish Giri is Dutch (born Russian).

  • Πεισίστρατος Βαραντεφίδης

    we really like this style of videos where you analyze more deeply than usual and we see tha magic of the game!! Keep it up Antonio

  • mdeva21

    What is this 'sorry about that' issue?

  • reading rainbow

    Shouldve known better than to attempt a move like that against someone like Giri.

  • adeternitamn

    Ra8 instead of Qc8 wins the game on the spot, as white has no counter play to it. Huge misplay by Tari, he managed to grab defeat from the jaws of victory with this one.

    Insted of tari bishop f8 if he plays rook to b7 what will happen

    12:38 Do I really have to give up the queen as white? what about Qa7xb6?

  • gamewizl

    Nice nickname - 'The Other Norwegian' - he should get that on shirts.

    This is a very weird draw

  • Lord Chanka

    You could take the pawn on e6, yes? Not saying it would work out nearly as well, but just that it’s available

  • Richard Hunter
    Richard Hunter

    One of my rules of thumb is that if a sacrifice seems dubious, then it is. That certainly was the case here anyway.

  • Jalil Diaz De La Pena
    Jalil Diaz De La Pena

    12:28 why couldn't queen just take the pawn b7?

  • chenf983able

    12:27, he could capture the pawn

  • Murigi Wilson Mungai

    12:30 "None of the squares are available for the white Queen" ??? Isn't Qxb6 available? Am I missing something?

    • Alex Supertramp
      Alex Supertramp

      You're right, but for the time being the once so strong queen along the 7th rank is now stuck on b6 and won't get out of there - all of the squares around it are covered. Might as well get yourself the initiative with a nice queen sac then or rather just avoid it.

  • Oleg Yamleq
    Oleg Yamleq

    I have watched about 20 agadmator videos, and he always reaches down and goes "Sorry about that". Why?

  • dzugaszwili

    What's going on with "umm, sorry about that" when agadmator starts almost every single video?

    At 12:26, after Ra8, couldn't the white queen escape with Qxb6?

  • Neeraj412

    Tari shouldn't have resigned, Anish wanted to offer a draw.

  • Vishruth's Guitar Channel
    Vishruth's Guitar Channel

    And when you say the queen is captured. Is not Queen takes on b6 a valid move?

    Can you do a video on Magnus Carlsen against Aryan Tari. I watched the match and tried to guess a few of the next moves. I want to know how you feel about it. (1/2-1/2)

  • Fortunalux

    Mr Hoodie Giri

  • zambot264

    At 6:08 why wouldn’t you play bishop to H4? The queen defends it and you can make some nasty discoveries by pushing g2. Even if you move the queen to 2nd rank you can still push the sacrificial pawn and have bishop to g3.

  • ConicalRamirez

    Why not Qxb6 when he said there is no square for the queen
