  1. I've played chess since I was like, six. Timed chess though… Is kind of ridiculous. Can't really think out your moves.

  2. It's intense! but it can be really fun to watch like really smart chess players start sweating when the timer is going out.

  3. Umm, of course… He's stated that he's no match for 3500 computers many times. He would likely lose consistently to subpar computer chess programs.

  4. 'Of course you're gonna win… show some hustle…'
    Proceeds to crush you and your tiny little human brain. The guy just likes to fuck with people xD

  5. That's true, but he doesn't practice or try to beat computers, he says that weakens your instincts. He does, however, beat ALL the guys that beat computers. He has a very good feel for the board and what is possible as the game progresses. I think he likes playing as much as winning. He's pretty good.

  6. Playing chess with a clock isn't ridiculous – If you didn't play with a clock then somebody in a losing position could jut not make their move and they would never lose ๐Ÿ˜€ Even correspondance chess is timed. No matter how much time you have, it's always possible to think deeper. The difference between blitz and classical just mirrors different life situations. Sometimes we have more time to consider options, sometimes we have to go with instinct. They're different skills. Not ridiculous!

  7. Favorite part ๐Ÿ™‚

    Rainn: You're not gonna let me resign?
    Magnus: I'm not gonna let you resign. You gotta show some hustle, come on.

  8. In chess there are only a couple million ways the game can go.. Would it not just be too memorize alle the different possible plays and just let the game go as you know it will?

  9. Actually the figure has been proving to be about 10 to the power of 130-starting at 20 and averaging approximately 30 legal moves per position, there are 318,979,564,000 possible ways to play the first four moves of chess. I don't know any theory after 1. g4 but experience will tell me how to take advantage of it without my having to do any research.

  10. No they can't-in computer rating pools top engines Houdini on good PCs haven't broken 3300. In human pools, they probably wouldn't be any higher.

  11. Yeah, every serious tournament for the past 100 years has been played with clocks because the idea of timed chess is ridiculous ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. Sorry, I meant play instead of beat. He beats the players that train and play against computers. No one beats a computer anymore.

  13. i used to score occasional wins against fritz 5 and chessmaster. and i can still beat engines like rybka/houdini if i have a huge time advantage.

  14. btw, i just felt like going back to your original comment and ripping into you a bit more.

    of course time chess makes sense. and you absolutely CAN think out your moves. you just have to accept that time is a resource, just like space, material, position, tempo (a meta form of time) etc.

    sitting there and thinking till all the stars burn out and the universe dies isn't interesting. and it's obviously not fair if you simply take more time to think than your opponent.

    hence clocks, dipshit.

  15. so awesome. Rainn is clearly pretty dang good, but Magnus just knows it all. Magnus is the mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

  16. It's not just a couple of million ways a game can go. That is the problem. It's so much more. xD The game would have been solved a long time ago by a computer if that was possible, but it still is far off being possible to solve it. There is like 10 followed by over 40 zeroes different moves (10^42 (if not more)). :p

  17. 6. Ng3 was a huge blunder [hence the agonising scream] by Rainn ๐Ÿ™‚ Bd3 would have been better (although still at a disadvantage).

  18. actually he's been a grand master since 2004 (when he was 13) and world champion since 2010. He's also a former world champion in lightning chess

  19. Not world champion in a "champion" sense; just top rated in the world. Anand is the current world champion (though magnus or aronian may change that soon)
