    I am so confused... At ~32:50 both Hess and Anna miss that the bishop on g4 is protected by the knight on e5. Hess recommends that if the queen attacks, the knight can take the bishop on c4, which is not a bad move because the bishop is hanging... But if the queen did move in and take bishop g4, then the knight could take queen g4, which would have been a hanging queen... Why would someone not take their opponent's hanging queen?

    ​@Dobby I will respond one more time, cause the length of that response is actually insane to me. The only part of that I read was the first and last 2 paragraphs. I was posing a scenario to confirm something. My base assumption may have been wrong, but I never said it was right. The whole point was to confirm if it was wrong or not. You keep acting like you are in a superior position here for having proven something. All you did was rudely help me. Good job, asshole.

    ​@DeepFried Oreo Exactly! I answered your question, which was about Hess saying sth that he DID NOT SAY, meaning you are, in fact, *objectively* wrong in your base assumption. 32:32 - Hess says: "look at minx she doesnt just react she doesnt say my knight is under attack, let me hit that queen" *draws arrow from bishop that is attacking the queen* "bc if the queen moves, Anna, down goes the bishop on C4". He is talking without a doubt about Minx (black) attacking the queen to win the bishop on C4, after the queen has to move bc of it. Anyone with an ounce of chess knowledge will understand that the queen will have to move somewhere not attacked. they didnt even mention it taking whites bishop, so there is 2 possibilities here: a) they dont consider that move bc it loses the queen and they are smarter than that or b) they include the move in "if the queen moves" which would be stupid bc, once again, that loses the queen. Considering they are professional chess players option a) seems a lot more likely doesnt it? So once again, they never said the words "take the bishop", meaning you either misunderstood what they mean with "move the queen" OR they are not worthy of their titles. Second, your arrow argument falls apart bc it was 1. drawn BEFORE anything was said about a queen move (meaning you made a false statement about that too), and 2. pointed towards the queen not the bishop, matching the statement he makes about the threat causing the queen to move and leave the knight hanging, and thus is definitely NOT drawn wrongly (doesnt matter if your argument is speed or an accidient or a mistake or whatever). Yet your understanding didnt change after i pointed this out. So I tried to make you get it. You respond with esoteric bullshit about "life being happier..." and "why you so angry". So yes this was a question about right or wrong the moment you made an incorrect statement and refused to accept my explanation of the objective truth and mistook it for an argument/my perspective. or to use your "strategy": "let me explain this a little more simple like" 1. you were confused. 2. I said there is no reason to be confused bc the thing that was confusing to you never actually happened 3. You refused to reconsider and said "He literally drew the arrow as he said it, lol. It's exactly what he meant." stating it as a fact (or what you perceive as such, so stop lying that you never saw it as a fact) 4. I say you are wrong, supporting my statement with quotes from the video which are clear evidence that you misunderstood it, since they were saying sth else while drawing the arrow AND drawing that arrow in the direction that supports their actual statement instead of your imagined one (meaning that argument is as weak as it gets) 5. Instead of accepting that your confusion was an error which is now cleared up you keep trying to convince me that I am the idiot not seeing your "argument" so who has the wrong idea here? the person making false statements (and then lying about it) or the one providing proof from the video and doing his best to make you understand what is going on so you can see the objective truth and stop being confused? How about you take your own advice: "Life is typically better for those who are able to realize their faults and grow from them" Good night

    @Dobby ​ @Dobby Let me explain this a little more simple like. You had the wrong idea, and still do, because this is not a matter of right vs wrong. If I had stated a fact that was wrong, than yes, you got me. I did not do that though. I was posing a scenario and asking for clarification. You've explained yourself in a way that I understood. Right before you called me a troll I had fully explained that I know exactly what your saying. However, you seem to have this idea that I was saying the arrow was drawn backwards as a fact. The closest I came to that was "No, no. The arrow was drawn backwards I am pretty sure." but even then I said pretty sure. I was re-stating my understanding because I wasn't sure if you knew where I was coming from. And you still don't seem to. Though again, you have answered my question already so this will be my last response. Have a good day I guess.

    Is it me or should there be a floor limit for rating. Players below 500 online elo are barely even chess players. (Are they even really alive?)

  • Nameless Beggar

    Yeah i agree. They should create a balance between 600-800 elo players for the consolation and 1000-1200 for winners bracket. This tournament (at the start) had the lowest elo with 11 participants below the 900 elo rating and 5 participants with a above 1000 elo. We need to consider that there are completely new players to chess but i doubt they will learn much from a 200 elo rated player.

    I believe the state of really bad chess in pogchamps4 is due to some really rushed coaching. I feel these players are too focused on tactics and where pieces are often supposed to be placed but fail to grasp some basic fundamentals. Then again, perhaps the most blame should be on the organisers. Massive fan of the whole competition anyway.

    It's a fail one both sides actually. First the cochas should concentrate on basics like; checkmate with Quenn+King, Rook+King, Pawn+King etc. and the fundamental ideas. I watched Hikaru and Packman doing this. : Second, fundamentals are too boring for both viewers and the streamers, so they get bored by it or simple refuse to build up and pratice on these basics. Openings attaracked more viewers, but it's the least useful to learn. In the End the grinders win, intelligent people like Hafu and Sadoche who dedicate a lot of time and detemination into playing the game for hours while the "casuals" lose badly.

    Probably true, but there are also a lot of streamers that don't take it seriously enough, or don't have the time to do coaching sessions. A lot of the stronger PogChamps players aren't inherently better, they just put in the time and effort for the coaching to pay off. It's a "you can bring a horse to water but you can't make it drink" type of situation.

    Minx has won a game. I can see why someone would be upset that she's getting prize money when she's acting like she doesn't care but people need to realize she's playing it up for content. And besides even before she knew she was getting money she committed to matching donations to cancer research on her first day of group stage and and matching donations to an animal shelter her first day of the losers bracket. Even today she said she was going to donate the 3k she's getting from this to another shelter.

    @YSSR TM then you'd have to question golf, tennis,etc tournaments as well then for paying first round losers or 70th ranked players. Its not how they distribute the prize money that is the problem, its more on the fact that Pogchamps will obviously never be a very competitive tournament because of their intended participant pool. Some do this for curiosity, some do this for love for chess but none of them will stress over this because chess isnt their primary focus for their streams.

    When playing, sometimes you're not thinking about who your opponent is because you're just thinking about the pieces. They're probably used to calling their opponent 'him' by default when playing online and so did it without thinking sometimes

I'd put her play somewhere between 1000 and 1100 personally, which is insane given how new she is to the game. She's certainly not as consistent as Fundy because she isn't as experienced, but she was giving him a run for his money despite him being nearly 1300 rated
