  • how is this the most watch? to me i thought QXC getting mated by Mr Throbbing in 7 moves after Hikaru was couching and raising his boy only to get spanked and humiliated on chess / youtube sensation. or you talking about just chess.com?

    • Also at a point both xQc and Rubius had over 100k viewers, chess had 140k viewers on Twitch, 30k on NOworld, and that's not including the other chess streamers commentating the match.

  • I'm confused by this community. With regards to chess I was of the understanding that it doesn't matter if your a GM or a brick, if you win you win. How does someone who plays better than their oppenent lead to grief/shitty comments? It appears that the "fans" can be very elitist and disregard the good moves played by a perceived beginner as they don't have the IM or GM labels. This seems very odd as the aforementioned IM's and GM's didn't have said labels until they earned them. Why not just enjoy the fact that a 'beginner' is making moves that the computer/IM/GM agrees with? Jealously?

  • Most watched live game probably, but how often has the Paul Morphy Opera game been replayed in lessons throughout the years? Or technically the stupid Harry Potter chess game where Ron the jerk doesn't pick the safer pieces for his friends to replace.

  • Xqc really isn’t a good chess player it’s kinda annoying how he comes in and starts streaming straight away but at the same time I guess it gets more people interested in the game so it really is a good thing

  • It's amazing watching people grow interest in chess and getting better at it. Xqc lost in 6 moves like a true novice and got interested, put an effort into it. Now look at how far he came, it was a great game from him and from Rubio. Another great point is how moch people this guys brought ito the community. People who where watching them play other games are now watching chess and liking it. How is this bad by any means?

  • Games remind me a bit of Stockfish on low levels -- plays perfect strategic moves, punishes you, protects every single pawn and then goes "oh, I'm level 3? Well, here then, you can take this free rook."

  • Can someone explain to me why on 17:40 Rubius can't go QB8 and mate? She's protected by the Rook and King has nowhere to go, can't take the Queen, am I missing something here or?

  • It is actually insane how humanities standards are regressing with each passing year. We have gone from publicly analysing world champion games to making coffee house level chess seem as if its some kind of a turning point in history. I did not say anything before, and I would not have said anything now either Levy( had it not been for your closing remarks). But ffs dont say you who dont like this are on the WrOnG sIdE oF hIsToRy. You have every right to try and make money out of content, and you have every right to make whatever content makes you feel good about yourself. I got no problem at all with all of this. Zero ! Just dont try and make sth so banal ,and utterly devoid of any sort of significance, into more than it is just cause it is convenient. Besides, online Chess becoming "popular" means absolutely nothing at all for the game of chess. And just some food for thought Levy, cause I like your content. Not all progress is necessarily good and just cause you can do sth it doesn't necessarily mean you should. Dont hate you and wont unsub ( this is a threat btw lol) but one of those dislikes is mine purely because of the last few seconds and not the overall content.

    • @zok Entertaining is purely subjective, but I get what you mean. My only issue is with blanket statements like "the wrong side of history" etc etc. I ofc do not in any way condone any form of pressure towards content creators. If someone doesnt like sth they can just watch sth else, in this day and age.
