My First Ever MEME Chess Tournament (Chess)

This is from my stream on February 10th, 2021. Catch me live every day but Saturday here:

I had a little time at the end of this stream so I decided to see what kind of chess tournaments was running. Turns out I was getting myself into some stickiness because the soonest tournament was King of the Hill, a game where you win if you get your king to D4/D5/E4/E5. It’s a bit of a meme but it also tests your ability to analyze a position very well. Check it out!


  1. Oh no, moment's of this video are so very terrible and so very horrible.

  2. In case anyone is confused, this is a chess variant called King of the Hill, in which players race to get their king to the center of the board.

  3. For anybody confused, King of the Hill is a gamemode in the video game Team Fortress 2 where you and your teammates must fight in a first person shooter style battle to take control of a single capture point. Your team takes control of the point by standing in its vicinity for a few seconds; once controlled, you have to keep it controlled for an amount of time to win. The first team to expire their time to control wins.

  4. Egg man literally made me addicted to chess.

  5. For anyone confused, King of the Hill was an ARG (augmented reality game) for iOS and Android devices sponsored by Mountain Dew to promote the release of Halo 4

  6. "You ready for this spicy move?"
    "AAHHH!! He was ready for that one"

  7. For those wondering, King of the Hill is a 1993 film directed by Steven Soderbergh about a young boy who struggles on his own in a run-down motel after his parents and younger brother are separated from him in 1930s Depression-era Midwest.

  8. Originality isn't our strong suit but we have fun here.

  9. Why are you playing on Chess . com instead of lichess? Lichess is far superior unless you're getting sweet sponsorship deals like Nakamura.

  10. Can anyone explain what this game mode is and how it works? I can't see any explanations anywhere.

  11. So NL's chat are prodigy's at this gamemode, right? After all, their first game vs NL was just all about king pushes and it worked wonders for them.

  12. for anyone confused, King of the Hill is a chess variant where you get high on propane and then try to win.

  13. Northern “This train doesn’t go there” Lion

  14. I just need to say that YouTube showed me an ad for "Preparation H" while watching this video.

  15. That sad "No…" Ryan makes when he realizes he just blundered the game still gives me immense giggles.

  16. NL doing the Dan Gheesling strategy of not playing the objective at all and just winning by timeout and the alternative objective (checkmate)

  17. "Where ya goin?" "AAAH!" "That's fine, welcome to check."
    I dunno why, but that line absolutely sent me. Hysterical laughter. I love it.

  18. For anyone confused, this is a comment about there being a lot of comments about this being king of the hill

  19. As much as I really like these chess videos, watching them makes me painfully aware of how stupid I am.

  20. Loses twice to early king pushes
    "You definitely can't push the king early!"

  21. For anyone curious about the format, curiosity (from Latin cūriōsitās, from cūriōsus "careful, diligent, curious", akin to cura "care") is a quality related to inquisitive thinking such as exploration, investigation, and learning, evident by observation in humans and other animals.

  22. If anyone's not sure what's going on, this is the game mode where you have to put Master chief in the glowing circle.

  23. 100% of comments: For anyone confused, king of the hill is a variant where the first person to get their king to the center of the board.
    0% of comments: literally anything else

  24. The "king to d4 checkmate" confused me so badly

  25. Thats amazing he keeps his elo at 1500 for the past year or is that a new account

  26. To clarify any misconceptions splat zones is a ranked game mode where the goal is to have more ink in 1 to 2 dedicated areas on the map whoever’s had more time in the splat zone in 5 minutes is declared the winner.

  27. Every move, you can see the fire in his eyes.

  28. King is in good company stuck in the bottom left.

  29. For anyone who is confused about the "king of the hill" I have herpies

  30. The video description pivots to "it also tests your ability to analyze a position very well" at the end.

    I feel like this is similar to when you pad out the end of like a primary school report with "it was very interesting and I learned a lot".
