I've dabbled in chess a lot of my life. I'm pretty shit at it TBH. But I do remember one game that I had a blast with, and regret never having the chance to finish. I went to a STEM summer camp at the Naval Academy when I was 16. One day, we got to pick from optional classes, I picked the chess class. It was a 2 year unbeaten chess master playing against like 20 of us at the same time. He beat me pretty quick my first round. My second round... Somehow, I actually managed to confuse the guy, and make him work for it. Basically, I realized I couldn't possibly stand a chance doing normal plays against a guy who can see 12 moves ahead. He really only needed 1 or 2 good pieces, and was willing to sacrifice all others in the goal of checkmating with just those one or two good pieces. So, I figured the best possible chance I could have would be a super defensive attrition. Basically, quickly set up a defense, delay him as long as possible, and commit to a really bitch ass noob tactic so dumb that not even he would really know what to make of it. My goal was to bleed him of all his best pieces before he could even get to my king, and if it got that far, use whatever I had left standing to go on the attack. I highly doubt I would've won this game... But he was legit confused. He took too long to take me out while setting up his own plan, and by the time he was ready to attack... I was set up. He stared at the board for a solid 2 minutes and was like "... I'll get back to you". Then he skipped me a couple times to go finish up other games before coming back to mine. He admitted he'd have to think about it because he wasn't really sure how to approach the problem I presented. I had done the dumbest shit. Basically, I put my king all the way on the left corner... Surrounding him was 2 knights, a queen, 2 bishops, 2 rooks, and several pawns, basically a 3x3 grid of really good pieces supporting each other, with a few pawns on one side as a shield. Once in that position, I just kept skipping my turn, daring him to attack it... This was the most chicken shit ever that no good chess player would ever do. But it was so out there, I don't think he really knew how to handle it. His entire attack was based on the idea that he's willing to sacrifice good pieces as needed to checkmate a king, under the assumption that he could either checkmate quickly, or failing that, kill more good pieces than lose through superior moves, ensuring at least 1 or 2 of his survive to checkmate. The problem I had presented was that I was in such an entrenched position, it effectively removed his skill from the equation, no matter how he approached his attack, it was incredibly unlikely he could get through the layers of defense without losing more pieces than he takes out. Unfortunately, we ran out of time. If I could redo that, I would've asked to stick around and finish the game, instead of go play with flight simulators in the next class. Nowadays, I have a VR flight sim setup a lot better than they had... Playing a chess champ was more of a unique experience. Personally, I think had the game continued, and had I gotten more 1 vs 1 time with him, he probably would've still won, he probably would've found a way to ferret out my king, or push through the defense and use my king trapped against my own pieces against me... But I'm at least proud that I gave an unbeaten chess master pause, and present a play that he actually had to stop and think about. I think even that was more than I could've hoped for.

critical magnus carlsen said that because in chess a game is something personal every game is difrent and when you do a tournement you give your rights to the game to the hosts in most cases i know this sounds odd but its what makes chess players go wild seeing what moves are used for instance alpha zero the best chess AI only had 10 games published out of thoasands and those 10 games were a big ass deal every move analized theories crafted its a big big deal and its not really that they had a problem with hikaru streaming its that it was promiting a competitor during HIS tournement its like you hosting a tournment and while you are playing people are promiting pyrocynical or something i know it sounds petty but it does make sense

the AGADAMATOR Drama from last year with St. Louis chess club was really similar to this. The olde guard is trying to maintain their market control and don't want individual players to hold sway over viewership numbers because it can disrupt the status quo and even negatively impact large chess orginizations if players can bargain for appearance fees and valuations on their personal brand like they did back in the 1900's.

Chess works literally like IQ, people who have a high IQ but achieved nothing in life, are extremely bitter at people with lower IQ with more successful careers or lives in general. In the same way, people who are insanely good in chess, but not good at anything else, or not successful in life in general feel frustrated to look at “idiots” who make more money and/or are more famous.

I've been watching chess and chess tournaments for the past couple of years and I used to play competitively at a younger age. I understand both sides of the argument but I do agree with charlie on the first half talking about GM Finegold, his humor is very edgy and is an acquired taste but he was out of line in his comments. However, I have been following the chess24/chesscom drama for a while now and it all started when chesscom didn't invite Magnus to the event they were hosting with FIDE, instead they let FIDE invite him and when he asked for more money than the norm (he is the WC and a competitor, so he should be paid more) chesscom declined then outed him as greedy which I think is a scummy move. And the stream with Hikaru was controversial since he had other commentators who are affiliated with chesscom cover the tournament, not just his games. TL;DR: Finegold is outta line, Chess24 drama has more depth to it.
