CARUANA SHOWS HIS CLASS!!! Caruana is one of the strong GM from USA. His playing style is very different from others. He would purposely prepare lines that his opponents are uncomfortable playing. The way he plays against Anand, or Aronian or Kramnik is completely different, and that is pretty admirable. He has more of this human-touch to his game still, though his memory is better than anyone else in the Chess world.*** ***Here is game analysis of Fabiano's game from Tata Steel Chess Championship. You will learn a lot from his game👇🏻*** ********

The a4 move came to me immediately because I play a lot of closed ruy lopez positions so its a move I play a lot, im guessing that's why that move was so obvious to the commentators but not fabi

Long time chess fan, don't play much anymore, but have fun watching/analyzing these great videos. Any experts out there care to help a medium level player (I found the 19 BxP move fairly quickly, for example) understand the game better? Studied this a bit, what happens if after 19 ... KxB we have 20 Qxp ? Seems that Black has no real decent response (Q moves only end up taking pawns/pieces but cannot prevent disaster, no viable rook moves, bishop is still under attack if N at d5 moves, etc, etc), as ultimately White will try to advance g6 {check} and Black will not recover, no?

11:36 I did not choose Rxd5. I chose nice rooklift Rg3 (threatening Rh3 and Qf7#) Apparently, it does not do anything because black plays Bf6. What an ugly move, how are we supposed to calculate that?

I think I spotted a forced mate sequence at move 22 What if 22 the White Queen goes to H3 delivering check and after the black king forcibly goes to G8 the White Queen continues checking at H7 forcing the black King f8 after which the White Queen delivers checkmate at h8. is this correct?

You dont have to calculate all the lines to play a move like a4, its just a move that positionally makes sense, youre creating a weakness, i (a humble 1600 player) spotted it instantly too

Noah Cohen Пре месец
I really really appreciate how Agadmator explains these high-level games in such a way that it makes a novice player like me feel like I'm Part Of It. I get stressed when I play online chess so I'm unrated. And I couldn't possibly understand all the little complexities and unmentioned threats on my own, nor could I see what positions were critical junctures nor whose position was better at various points in the game for what reasons. I can barely solve Forced Mate in Two puzzles. But this channel makes me feel like, just maybe, I could play a good game someday. Thanks, Antonio/Agadmator!!

Stafford is fun in blitz games but unsound. With perfect play white can easily refute it, leaving black with no compensation. Fabi is an expert on Petroff and would have punished Duda if he played it.
