Eric the beast beating GMs like flies
Please make a t shirt with: 'that pawn looks tender'
Thanks for another great video to fall asleep too. And I mean this in a nice way, your voice and games are so calming 😊
I believe backwards MagnusCarlsen's offical name is Bizzaro Magnus.
1:02:00 Woah! What a surprise! two great people playing each other
that was a very satisfying last game! 🙂
There was a fork: 1:04:44

"Stafford Gambit time"
1:08:37 I've never seen a player so skilled at creating stalemate possibilities as Eric. He has tricked so many people into stalemate he deserves the Stalemate GM title.
Finally found out what gg means, it's geriatric gangbang…
At 14.11 i don't understand why he didnt go Queen takes pawn instead of trading, can somebody please explain for me?
