Hello everyone and welcome to a very Nice game that was played yesterday in a Match between Magnus Carlsen and gukesh And it's from the blitz section uh the Five plus one Blitz section because as You know in the speeches Championship They play uh three uh time controls they Play five plus one three plus one and Then one plus one so uh first uh an hour And a half of uh five plus one then an Hour of three plus one and then half an Hour of bullet one plus one uh and this Is again from the uh five plus one Section uh I thought you you guys would Enjoy this one it's a very nice attack And the the match Was Won by Magnus it Was a pretty crushing defeat 23-7 uh Although uh did much better in the end Than in in the beginning of the match uh But this is one game I thought you guys Might enjoy so let's uh check it out It's a game uh from the I don't know What's before uh uh quarterfinals like You have the finals the semi-finals the Quarterfinals and then whatever is Before that this is from that like the Eight finals or you know 16 people thing I don't know the word for it but this is From there so Magnus with the white Pieces opens with the D4 we have Knight To F6 C for E6 Knight to F3 and now D5 We have the Queen's Gambit declined and Now Knight the C3 uh offering uh Lucas To go for Bishop to B4 and he does it

Bishop to B4 Dora goes and defenses on The board we have E3 and bookish castles Transposing into the nimso Indian and Now Ponte A3 Bishop to D3 is still by Far the most popular we have A3 Bishop Captures and C3 be captures and now D Captures on C4 this is extremely rare Usually you will see something like C5 Or or Knight to C6 but the captures on C4 in this particular position is very Rare And Magnus recaptures Bishop captures in C4 C5 by gokish and now Magnus castles And here there are some known moves like C characters and D4 Knight b37 Queen to C7 all known moves but B6 is a new move So now already as of move 9 we have a Completely new game and Magnus goes for Queen to E2 he develops the queen now he Has to develop the bishop to connect the Rooks uh and queen to C7 and this is Already slightly uh in uh well incorrect Bishop to B7 has to be played here in Order to prevent Magnus from advancing His spawn to E4 or you could put a Knight to the E4 this is all I mean Bishop to B7 Fall by Knight T4 those are The moves you want to play uh Lucas goes For Queen the C7 and this uh will create Problems for him as Magnus pushes E4 Right away uh which would not be Possible uh now comes Knight B to D7 and Pawn to E5 chases away the Knight and Now this diagonal opens up and you can

Never have a knight on F6 uh pretty much For the rest of the game with Knight to D5 Knight to G5 now out of nowhere an Attack Um emerges and now Magnus is playing Some Queen D3 Queen C2 action to go After the H7 Pawn so H6 kicking the Knight away from their Knight to E4 and Now again it's a very very uh difficult To play this with black Uh Bishop to B7 should have been played And it should be played now with Bishop To B7 maybe black still has some hopes Of defending this position but gookish Plays Pawn to F6 and now the position is Completely winning for Magnus I will Allow you guys to to pause the video and And try to figure out how it's a very Nice idea so feel free to pause the Video and win the game for Magnus while I give you a couple of seconds So for those of you who were able to do It congratulations on uh completely Busting open the black King's position And for those of you who just want to Enjoy the show yeah it is of course Bishop captures on H6 and now there Really isn't a good continuation Uh you could say okay I'm not gonna Capture on H6 I'm gonna play something Like Bishop to B7 but then Magnus would Just continue happily uh offering Offering the bishop and now you kind of Have to capture it and now let's say

Queen to G4 King to F7 and now Knight to D6 check and now a nice King Khan begins Queen to G7 King to d8 and now Pawn to F4 and if you can survive this then I Mean you're you're a spectacular player But this is objectively completely Winning for white I will just show you a Fun line for example Bishop to C6 the Prepare B5 uh F5 is coming and if e Captures just Knight captures and now if Pawn to B5 you're gonna trade here Bishop captures Bishop captures and Ponte E6 and there is nothing for you to Do here you can't move the Knight Because the Rook hangs you can't um uh Well you can't really do nothing because Then E7 check will win the Rook uh Either way and if Bishop captures then Just Queen to E7 check and you win back The piece King C8 Queen captures and 6 And you won back your PC or up material And um well the there's just no no way To play this with black uh you still Have to get the Rook into the game but Also the King has no defense So instead after Bishop captures on H6 G Captures on H6 was played and now you of Course know what magnus's idea is he Wants to bring the Rook into the game Via a nice Rook one to D3 Rook lift and Then try and Checkmate the black king So Queen to G4 with check first and now King the h8 here King to F7 liking the Line that we've shown uh doesn't really

Work here it's even worse after Anita D6 Check King E7 Queen G7 checking to d8 You can even play this right away Bishop Capture C captures are now just Knights To F7 with check and that's pretty much It Rook captures Queen captures and Whatever you play let's say have Captures an E5 just Queen to G8 check King G8 and the D captures an E5 leaving Black without Um all that many options you can't Develop the bishop because the Rook Would hang okay you can play Bishop to B7 but then we just move the queen with The check and basically Rook is coming T1 you will have a rook on F1 F4 F5 F6 E6 and that's it there's no playing this So after Queen to G4 checkbook cash Tries King the h8 but now Queen to G6 Now Magnus goes for the H6 spawn and if You capture or Advance then there's even Characters and H6 with checking to G8 Queen captures and E6 with check and Then uh the entire position falls apart So Bishop to B7 finally gookish plays This move but now Queen captures an H6 King j8 queen to G6 with checking to h8 And now Rook 8 D1 coming in for a nice Rook to D3 Rook to H3 Checkmate so Knight captures an E5 Lucas gives back a Material to try and defend this D Captures Queen captures on E5 and now Uh Magnus should play something like Either Queen to H6 to get the Queen off

Of the off of the G file because it Could matter or just continue with Rook To D3 I will show you because it's a Fine it's it's a fun line and Knight to F4 now that's uh the reason why Magnus Did not go for this probably as it's a Blitz game so you know he just wanted to Get rid of that Knight because it Attacks the Queen the rook and guards The H3 square but still Queen H6 check King to G8 now look at this Rook the G3 Checking to F7 king queen to H7 checking Gate and now there's this bishop to B5 Check and that's it there's no playing This King 38 Queen D7 will be Checkmate However after Queen captures an E5 uh Magnus played Bishop captures on D5 he Just didn't want to allow that Knight to F4 move I imagine and now he captures on D5 which allows Magnus to just win on The spot but with Bishop captures on D5 It would be a bit trickier Uh because now if you if you continue With Rook to D3 there's the incredible Queen F5 and now if Rook the H3 with Check you play Queen captures on H3 and Now if G captures a rook the Jade wins Back the White Queen and now it's black Who's winning the problem is even after Bishop captures on D5 Magnus doesn't Have to play Rook to D3 He can play Pretty much anything and he will still Be winning like Rook uh rook fp1 and Okay white is still winning uh but it

Would be uh you know it would require a Bit more works but uh Luke has played e Captures and E5 and now Rook to D3 by Magnus with uh uh and after Rook to D3 I Was in this position on move 23 that Bookish resigned in the game as there is Nothing more to be done here the problem Is if you if you capture for example an E4 then Rook to H3 check you have to Block with the queen and this will now Be Checkmate and even if you don't if You try something like a best of the C8 The guard the dh3 square so Rook H3 is Not possible Rook G3 and now you cannot Defend against Rook the G7 Checkmate Okay you could play Rook def 7 but then This is Checkmate because the Rook uh The Rooks are now disconnected as the Bishop was placed on C8 so yeah there is Nothing you can do here after Rook to D3 Bookish resigned and another great Victory it was for Magnus Carlsen in the Five plus one uh Blitz section uh so Yeah like I said the final result was 27 To 23 to seven so here gookish did get Some wins and he even got some nice Checkmates but it was a pretty much of a Just a crushing victory for uh for Magnus Carlsen who will now face uh Fabiano caruana in the quarterfinals of The speed Chess Championship uh so yeah That's the game hope you guys enjoyed it And learned how to attack the nimsu Indian defense maybe when it's played

With not not the the most precise move Order I also hope you enjoyed that as Well I would like to thank Zoltan Koscardi yeah Benjamin halberger uh Ravishing reptiles YouTube home and Anubav katiel for contribution to my Channel thank you a lot I really Appreciate it it as usual you can check Two of my previous videos here thankful For watching and I will see you soon Continuing to check up on your wonderful Suggestions and basically whatever else Happens in the Chess World most likely Also including the speed Chess Championship and whatever happens there So thank you all I will see you soon and Have an excellent rest of your day
