This was a Twitch Rivals chess event called “Hand and Brain.” Simple concept. The brain (Hikaru) picks which piece to move and the hand (Hutch) picks where to move it. This was my 3rd appearance in a grand finals of a Twitch chess tournament and the first time that I finally won. Was a LOT of fun.

3:21 that's a bit harsh, ngl…
9:10 not sure what hikaru wanted there, d5 and then what? I know d5 is thematic in these kinds of positions but what after takes for example?
This was funny, I wonder if hikaru used some mind telepathy at 5:34 thooo
What happens if the player is in check but the brain says a move that doesn't work because it doesn't move the king out of the way or give an option to block or stop the check would that be checkmate?
I doubt it would happen but if it did that would be interesting
5:31 someone please tell me which pawn he Hikaru meant
comment for the algorithm
i cried after he missed that first checkmate
Only here for the chess
I want to see more deep analysis when Hikaru was disappointed. I would love to see his intention.
Hutch is actually pretty good i was surprised
Why is Hutch playing with an engine? That’s cheating…
Holy hell! Congrats man.
10.35 watching Hikarus stream?
Always loved the chess content and I was waiting for the day it would come back! Even just some 1v1 content or a road to 1500/1600 series.
This is awesome, continue please

That endgame was clutch, there were so many moments where it was really natural to go wrong
Hikaru is so cool
