    There wasn't actually a stalemate risk in the second game because unlike with Ludwig's, every single queen move would have come with check

    Both Hafu and 5up are smart people. They used to play among us and dominate the lobies, but they also pick up chess very fast Hafu won PogChamps2, will 5up manage to win Pog4 as well?

    @Zevven bro toast is not called a god for everyday plays. His plays which earned him the title of God was amongst players who were paying a lot of attention. Remember his biggest brain plays are in the early days of among us when having a fixed lobby wasn't a thing yet. He played in the same lobby as in 5 up corpse hafu critical and still made some god level plays. His most memorable play wasnt against his fixed loby

    They are good , but not THAT great. Dominating against people not paying attention is not really an achievement. Just like Toast is called a god for being good against his chaotic braindead lobby who troll a lot.

    10:40 - I don't understand why can't he premove because it's mate wherever white goes.

    In some cases they might premove in a certain way and it will stalemate given the right series of moves.

    @Connor M I understand what you are saying. But there is a better way to say that. Its not so much about what she meant but how she said it.

    @Akshay Joshi what? She’s just being realistic, 5up is significantly higher rated than sapnap. There is only so much one can improve in a small amount of time from coaching, so realistically sapnap stood no chance. She did the right thing as a coach and didn’t tell him that before the match so he wouldn’t be psyched out, but let him know after so he wouldn’t take the loss too hard.

    Ok, here’s my best guess on why Hess freaked out at Queen H2. There is no issue, but it’s a very similar situation to Ludwigs game earlier in the day. Hess thought it was white’s move, if white had moved to the back rank first then queen to h2 would have caused stalemate in the exact way Ludwig did. But since it was blacks move, it was fine. Hess just lost track because they were moving fast.

    no issue they were just referring to Ludwig premoving the ladder mate and getting a stalemate. Here it doesn't matter because the king is getting checked every move.

    Why were they freaking out about Q4h2 at 10:40? It would't be a stalemate since king could move to either f1 or d1 and Q3g1 would mate either way, so it should be fine. Am I missing something?

    Idk in this position why, since he was delivering checks, but in a previous game, I believe Lud vs Boxbox, lud gave the win to a stalemate by premoving queens that weren’t checking the king. I feel that they just were worried because lud just did that
