Magnus Carlsen destroys Maghsoodloo in 28 moves | Commentary by Sagar

It was the final round of the World Rapid Championships 2022 and Magnus Carlsen was in a must win situation. His opponent was the enterprising Iranian GM Parham Maghsoodloo. This was good news for Magnus as Parham never really plays drawish chess. When Carlsen opened with 1.e4, the Iranian GM responded back with the Sicilian. The game was exciting and led to a fascinating finish. Check out how this game, where the World Champion, who is famed for his positional and technical play, is an absolute monster when given a chance to attack!

  1. I have one question…
    Why does maghsoodloo dont play queen c2 at his last move as it was a clear check mate?

  2. Black queen e3 to defend check sac queen probably still lose

  3. Black Queen e3 can stop checkmate

  4. Why not sacrifice your queen, then pray??

  5. In the last.massod can win by a checkmate
    Going with queen to c2 taking off the pawn. Then white king goes to a1(only option) takes the rook.on d1 and that's the checkmate.
    I think massod didn't thought of that because of pressure or the match was fixed.

  6. bro never upload a chess game without your Commentary Sagar, its amazing and makes the game so much more fun to watch!i play by play style in chess really works, elevates it, especially when the commentator is good enough to understand and explain the moves and future plans quickly, the viewer also learns alot to! love your work! Fan From Manchester England!

  7. indian accent hits different in commentary, so intense lol.

  8. I just subscribed because of the exciting commentary and also the way Magnus played that game.

  9. On 8:41 black should have played queen to c2 and then given a simple checkmate


  11. I don't think I'll easily watch any chess game without Sagar's amusing commentary.
    He is what Bill McLaren was for rugby, Ray Hudson for soccer and Geoffrey Boycott for cricket.

  12. I could be wrong, but I never am so… does anybody else agree that based on position, Maghsoo would have gained tempo AND initiated a better attack without…. castling!! Of course, hindsight is…

  13. I have a doubt can not in last move parham play bishop to d3

  14. {{{ extra gulab jamun for the editor }}}

  15. The commentator is actually a better player than Magnus, but he prefers not to compete on the highest level.

  16. Bro, I don't play chess at all. Maybe three times in my whole life and never in the last 30 years. I watch all your videos.

  17. I am here only for your "face" in thumbnail

  18. I'm at the point where it's zero fun watching a chess match without the fantastic commentary/analysis by Sagar!

  19. Can you make a video on improving openings ??

  20. A cup of tea some snacks and chess game explain by sagar Shah a perfect evening.

  21. "to continue the suffering" LOL. That's a brutally hilarious comment.

  22. that was like a lesson from The Art of Attack in Chess

  23. I am addicted to watching this with your fabulous commentry.

  24. Hi, is magsooooooooodlu considered a goat in chess?

  25. I like Maghsoodloo – he will learn from this, he is an excellent player. Carlsen is a freak – I feel so lucky to be able to watch him play. Once again excellent commentary.

  26. This is like and how my uncles and my brothers destroy me haha

  27. Хороший урок. Надо будет папе показать. Он у меня начинающий шахматист.
