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 Older commentsNewer comments nothing to do with the video, but why has Hikaru never even made it to a Candidates Event let alone be world champ? Just curious. I'm a newly minted chess fan Reply “I was only 2200 at age 10” BOI Reply Paul Morphy #1 at 12yo WTF Reply “Who is this guy” Literally fucking Petrov I thought he was trolling Reply King morphy👑👑👑👑 Reply 5:52 Mir Sultan Khan 7th ranked player in the world. Boy could he have done things with chess Reply Weird how nobody ever achieved 2800… Reply "But the World War didn't start until 1914" 😐 Reply 👏where👏was👏Beth👏Harmon👏 Reply Levy Rosman must’ve been 11 Reply The towering hardware emphatically notice because illegal genetically correct atop a zesty garden. best, parallel flight Reply I didn't know or think that Najdorf was from my country! Reply It looked to me like it went up and instantly down again. Reply The first to break 2800 in the video is Jose Capablanca at 2:56(in og vid). Funnily enough Instantly after Emanuel Lasker also gets above 2800 and beats him (although it was only for 2months). Reply 2:55 The numbers that you think of would be average. It was pretty common to see some people get 80+ the average is only so low because of low hygiene standards wars, and no way to save people that got sick leading to a lot of very young deaths. Reply Bobby was basically like a Supergiant star lol, erupted in a supernova and vanished. Kasparov’s longevity is crazy. Reply Even in the chat of chess streamers you find “simp” every time a woman is mentioned and you fail to insult her… it’s a sad world we live in 😂 Reply Chess players know nothing outside outside of chess. Fucking hilarious Reply People who could play chess back in the day were probably not your average peasant, and lower life expectancies is mainly due to lots of infant mortality. Reply If Fischer and Morphy had played decades longer, they can change the history of chess significantly Reply Petroff/Petrov actually died at age 69 I saw it on the graph Reply 12:18 that flex Reply Unbelievable russians, n1 for 11-20+ years. Reply José Raúl Capablanca 🇨🇺SO PROUD Reply @2:03 "yeah Staunton very good chess player by the way drops 50 rating Reply My biggest question is where was Beth Harmon Reply 2:34 life expectancy was around 45 because so many babies died super young. If you made it past your early years even 80 was not unheard of. The reason life expectancy has gone up so drastically in the past few centuries is the hugely increased infant survival rate Reply “In 1997 I was only ten years old, I was not that good at chess, I was only 2200” Ok, I see how it is (goes and cries in 800) Reply Botvinnik etc were not representing Russia but the USSR – odd mistake Reply Probably the fall of points in the early 1900s for Lasker was because he took a break from chess to work in his Mathematics PHD. Reply 6:40 i thought "hey, its bill gates" Reply It’s not a flex guys when I was 10 I was only 2,200 gosshhhh Reply Damn lasker. Reply Seeing Wesley So in this list at the 14 minute mark with the Philippine flag 🇵🇭 makes me really sad. I'm glad where he is now considering that my country's sports commission didn't supprt him but looking back, it still makes me sad 😢 Reply Hikaru did come 2nd for a split second, If you change the mode to 0.25 playback speed, you can see that Hikaru Nakamura was 2nd for a split second Reply Why Fabiano has another flag?? Reply He did die at 69 years old Reply "in other games like League, NA is not very good" XD Reply Kasparov literally spawned on the list bro Reply Hikaru actually was number 2 according to fide at one point in time Reply Damn Wesley is a Filipino?? Reply Can we talk about how at 3:00 Paul is 18 but he has been the number 1 chess player for five and a half years Reply "Were people 61 in 1850s" Reply I understand he wants to use modern flags but afaik during cold war period chess was very political so you really should use ussr flag for players like Mikhail Tal Reply It showed you were 2 for a while Reply "Laugh it up" while sitting on Morphy's picture is pricesless. Dudes haircut was a bowl mullet Reply What does it mean when literally every single person has their EDO drop? Does that mean the entire field is collectively stronger and thus better able to keep any one of them from rising to the top? Or are there weaker players who are rising in their abilities who bring the average down by beating everyone, but still not good enough to totally dominate? Reply misha is coming Reply What i learned: if your name starts with v then you will be a top 10 rated chess player Reply Petrov died 69.. chat wasnt trolling xD Reply Comments navigation Older commentsNewer comments Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
