    Been playing chess for a while now, also been looking for more mainstream publicity for it to catch on.. Here's one of the problems I see, new viewers seem to like seeing blunders and more creative (i.e. inaccurate) lines played on the board. The commentators make it fun of course but, as soon as the players get good enough that they blow the competition (here on Pogchamps at least) out of the water, they aren't brought back next season due to being too strong. Are they picked up by a GM and taken under their wing afterwards for advanced coaching? Is there an advanced Pogchamps competition in the making so we can continue seeing players like Sardoche, Fundy, etc play again? As much as I like seeing Fundy and Crokeyz play, many more viewers may find a high-energy Ludwig or Tectone as more entertaining to watch. There needs to be something happening to keep higher rated play interesting to the masses. Any thoughts?

    On the bishop g5 move there is a nasty continuation if he plays Nd3 instead! Nd3+ Rxd3 cxd3 Qd2 and then you play bishop g4 because after the queen you win everything in a series of checks. If only he saw the Knight move first!

    I don’t know if Chess com reads these, but they should definitely make some content where the coaches try playing the video games that their participants are known for. It would really introduce the coaches to the experience of being a beginner and make some great content for everyone.

    i was spamming fundy how he missed the queen sac. He saw it 15 minutes after the finale win, but still didnt realize he had the same idea twice in the game. It was funny anna rudolf was streaming the event as well and she said in the first game> Good that fundy didnt open analysis and saw the queens sac, it would only anger him.

    First game is the most amazing stalemate in the history of chess! For beginners stalemates ruin chess. But its not a hard concept to make sure your move puts the opposing King in check.

    I mean that championship bracket game was clearly important to both those players who were stressed to death. But as for Rubius’s stalemate, I get it. To me the sportsmanship and giving us the extra game was worth it but I know others like to see people go all out for a win.

    @Ben Davis It almost seemed like he thought you could only stalemate when you check the opponent even though it's obviously the other way around. Like he stopped pushing his pawn when the promotion would've been a check. And then he only promoted the pawn when it wasn't a check anymore.

    There is a unique value here to watch non-professional players in a tournament. There is a moment where you get to scream at the player to make a certain move that won't happen in top-level-play. POGchamps makes chess accessible to everyone. Jack Donaghy would recommend the announcers find that 3rd-kind-of-heat that represents, Us, the viewer to add to the roster for part V.ictory Road Haven't seen all but, go Jimmy!

    Tie breakers should be 5|5 instead of 3|2 in my opinion. 3|2 is way too far off from the 10|5 the players have been almost exclusively practicing for the tournament. 5|5 would still give all the advantages that Bill Sweeny mentioned without being too difficult for newer players.

    @Bryan Sweeney yeah, all valid points in their own right (and i must admit, I'm biased as i was rooting for Crokeyz). still, it just doesn't necessarily sit right with me that players of this skill level are forced to play at such speeds. the game wasn't half bad, but with even lower rates players it almost just comes down to dumb luck. still, like i said, might not be something that can be changed so i guess the contestants will need to simply adjust as best they can.

    @Random Person I think there are several reasons for it. 1. Time constraints, like you mentioned. 2. It ramps up the intensity 3. It makes the game much more likely to be a decisive one, rather than another draw

    As someone during the live stream mentioned, I don't think ties should be decided by shorter games. At this level, it feels like it's a little excessive; I would much prefer regular games, although there might be some time constraints that prevent the organizers from doing it that way.

    It's astounding that after as much chess that MrBeast has played, he still doesn't understand that putting your opponent in check will never lead to a stalemate. I don't wanna be too harsh on the guy, but at some point you gotta figure it's an IQ issue more than a chess skill issue.

    @Crushed Scouter Here is a refutation. In a previous game, it became super clear that Mr. Beast didn't understand that if his opponent has moves to make (like a knight), that it was not possible to stalemate. He eventually figured that out after about 5 moves, but the concept of stalemate isn't particularly easy for players to understand unless they look it up or are explicitly taught it. Let's not forget that most of the people in this event are exceptionally busy people with large audiences for their content, and even with the prize money, they probably lose money. However, they bring a lot of eyes and new players to the game of chess, they bring a lot of joy in the content they provide, and they just helped raise over $180,000 for a charity that raises mental health awareness and gets people the help they need. Also, it's clear that Mr. Beast has worked hard on his chess because he played a lot better than he did in the last tournament. All you chess gatekeepers, haters, and snobs need to take a long walk off a short pier.
