GMHikaru reacts to The history of the top chess players over time 19.08.2023 Original Video – Abacaba Hikaru Post navigation PreviousNext 280 Comments Comments navigation Newer comments Hikaru 61 isn't that old my dude Reply It's crazy how all these players influence the way we play chess today. Reply I'm from 2023 and he's top5 Reply “In 1855 I thought you lived to be like 45 or something” Depends where you live, and if you were born there, or brought there. Lol Reply 10:59 still no xqc on list lmao Reply WHERE IS XQC ON THE LIST??? Reply 11:7 XCQ is not on the list omegalul Reply LMAO Hikaru thinking NA is best right now is hilarious. The US has like 10 good players most of which just changed federation there at some point and aren‘t even American themselves. Europe is still by far the best although especially India looks very good when it comes to youngsters. Still for now Europe is still the name of the game. Especially also if you look outside of the top 100 and at how many titled players there are overall. Like Germany alone has more titled players than the US. Apart from that handful of really good players in NA there‘s really noone there Reply I love your journey GM Hikaru ❤ Reply “I was 10 years old back then I wasnt that good at chess. I was 2200”– Hikaru 2021 Reply what are the average Elos of people seeing this comment? I’m 1700 @18 Reply 1855 I thought you lived to be. 45 or something…. Brother in Christ god above help us all this guy is a gem chess player but his knowledge of basic history is literally in the gutter… Reply Around 1900 you asked why the curves go down. My guess is due to the number 3 and 4 player spiking upwards around the time. There has to be some balance at the top so the 3 and 4 player were winning a lot those years and the top two were losing. Complete guess but the graph is logical in some way Reply 6:57 I'm from latvia Reply I can’t believe a streamer made it to the top 10! Reply Absence of soviet flag and all those soviet GMs being "russian" is a complete nonsense. Also Kasparov is Azerbaijani, not Russian, even if we accept absence of USSR. But otherwise a very good video. Reply I love looking at thire names cuz they often have an opening named after them Reply its 2023 i don't see xqc 😠 Reply what happened to Mecking? He was the 3rd best in the world in the 70s, but the highest he got on this list was the 6th place, as a Brazilian, I felt extremely offended. Reply He said China was going to past North America eventually, now that’s becoming more and more true Reply Hikaru realise he is old is just gold Reply They have great rating but no one can match mikhail tal sacrifise Reply It’s really interesting because a lot of players were 2850s, like Magnus in the same decade Reply Bobby will remain the biggest what if in history .People dont understand how much better he was compared to his competition .Even with the biggest gap in the graph , that shows only part of the truth . GOAT Reply Jose Raul capablanca I see that his the 1st to reach 2800 Reply Hes it again Reply Today is 4th of june 2023 Hikaru just hit number to again by winning a match in the norway chess tournament. Congratulations Hikaru Reply Oops he did it again. Reply Watching this after Hikaru returns to world no. Two on 4th June 2023 Reply Do you always say everything twice? Reply Anyone here after Hikaru won Norway Chess 2023? Reply funny getting recommended this again after he has once again returned to world rank #2 on june 9 2023 after finishing first in norway chess, beating fabiano in the last game. Reply Well he hit #2 again. Reply It’s 2023 Reply 6:20 "this is such an imperialist Russian music" that aged well Reply the low live expectancy in past days is a result of very high childrens mortality. the people also reached 60+ Reply Isn't ELO relative to your cohort of opponents? I doubt Morphy is a 2700 by today's standards. I would say more 2500 Reply 7:47 Bobby just broke the chart. its really a shame he didnt play for longer… Reply #2 again Reply well he's actually number 2 now Reply he was 69 ! XD Reply Wow i dont even know the history of chess 😜 xD rawr Reply Beth Harmon? Reply I'm sure some already saw that well mostly .. but the first to pass the 2800 was Capablanca by feb-mar 1915 around 5:14 in the video Reply hi from 2023… still no xQc Reply Lmfao Reply the pet Reply Bro said “died at 69???” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 bursted out laughing Reply 11:00 👀 Reply 11:01 It is 2023 now Hikaru.
