  1. Levy dont draw fight till the end bro

  2. Levy when u said about the lamp it started distracting me

  3. 1 move for 36 minutes? I mean what time control is this?

  4. I’m a 1600 and I saw h4, knight a5 bishop c2. Sometimes I swear I’m just a lazy calculator over the board but my instinct/feel is often correct yet I second guess myself. I wish I didn’t do that. Maybe I’d be higher rated. Sigh.

  5. I'm filipino. I'm still a beginner but I hope I could be a national master someday. 😀 maybe IM if i have time.

  6. How long are the games if the GM was thinking for a 30-40 minutes on a move? Was there a time limit?

  7. Good luck Levy. You are amazing also, go beat some GM ass please.

  8. How long are these games? Are they playing without a timer?

  9. Now I want to see you and Mark finish the game just for funsies.

  10. Chess is definitely a game of paralysis from analysis.

  11. Thank you for teaching me the F word Levy

  12. Having spent about 20+ hours watching Pogchamps 4 this week, its odd to come back to a game where I can't immediately see the best move!

  13. Smart call, but man I wish offering a draw was not allowed. If you think you are worse, or better, or even, just play it out. Also, no draws from repetition. After three repeats force the first player to make a different move. Anyway, congrats on the professional finish and good luck!

  14. I think you made the right call here Levy. Nice job making a GM uncomfortable enough to want to offer you a draw.

  15. I didn`t really know Levy before this video but after the first 7 minutes, I think I´ve became his biggest fan lmao

  16. GONNA binge watch all of this series!! no spoilers

  17. lol i played Mark Paragua in a cash blitz tourney. TOUCH MOVE i had mate in one he didnt see it. he touch moved for a loss. then saw it and dropped the piece on others like dominoes. and the TD was called wish we had a DGT board. so they said ohhh a GM would never cheat…lol

  18. "that just looks really fucking stupid" yep

  19. I wish Levy would think less about the rating(s) of his opponent and more on the position.

  20. The lamp? Gotta go 😐 Too bad about the draw. IMHO, FIDE should come down on them…just saying.

  21. Looking forward to round 2 and catching up on this series of videos. A draw is better than a loss!
