phanTomtilt Lira : Well I'll be damned I'm thanking YT for recommending this video for me.

Dale Greer : Favorite line: "He's protecting this bishop like it's made of gold."

Stewie Griffin : this isn't the greatest queen sacrifice in history. The greatest queen sacrifice in history occurred in year 2007 in the match between me and my neighbour when I gave him the queen for free because I urgently had to go to the toilette.

Orange Man : Very deep queen sacrifice. In most cases queen sacrifices come when they can be followed up by quick mating tactics. In this case he did it in long term context which makes it superb.

Arne Karskstad : If the queen does not lead, how can she expect her subordinates to follow.

swss4rmy : Dear Youtube algorithms i dont play chess, but this is interesting so ok i guess

مرتضى الدراجي : Who else watch in 2019

Tchong Lee : Regular russian players play chess like computers. but rashid played chess like a human. Amazing man playing from his heart and that makes me emotional :) If you think about it that is the reason why his wins were so devastating and impressive because when you have 2 computers facing each other its always a close and boring match right but if you happen to find a human being who can break those incredibly sophisticated algorythms that the russian players were coming with and were trained to acquire from the youngest age, then the result is pure greatness and you suddenly find yourself submerged with great emotions watching those outstandings counter attacks performed by Najmudinov :)

Earth-Chan : I confused this Video in my recommended , 100% i dont know how to play chess but i watched it till de end

iHAVEAQWERTY : 6:10 "he's protecting this bishop as if it's made of gold..." 😂😂😂😂

hi tech : i have 0 idea what is happening but it looks kinda intresting

Lidya Wayne : Two minutes ago I was watching a Ted-ed video about squids’ defense systems and somehow I ended up here and I haven’t played chess for like ages...Very interesting video though.

Monkey D. Ruffy : I have no idea why this was in my recommended 😂 but i agree

SenorQuichotte : Greatest queen sac was Marie Antoinette

Ockert Wessels : So glad youtube recommended this! Thanks agadmator.

Fritz Vold : Queen sacs between masters are the stuff of legend. In his chess autobiography, "My Fifty Years of Chess", Frank J. Marshall relates how his spectacular Queen move in front of the opponent's King's three pawn phalanx, resulting in announcing checkmate in three moves was applauded by the tournament spectators by showering the final board position with gold coins!

Lugo428 : Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and again. Thanks YT for recommending this.

Samuel : no idea why this was in my suggestions but really fascinating.

MegaJONDAMAN : Wow! So amazing! I couldn't even comprehend the queen sacrifice until like 12 turns later at the triple fork! What a beautiful game! And great commentary as well. Don't know why this popped up in my recommended, but I have officially subbed.

Video 2 : I've never watched a chess related video in my life, but I'm glad I checked this out when it popped up in the recommended tab

Ryan A' Gamers Lounge : You did something right because your video was in the recommended for thousands of people today. Newly subbed. Congrats on your success.

John Vincent II Besin : that queen sacrifice is really a bad idea... if black just played a very well defense against white is could be a win win for black... i see poor defense in middle game...

Andy N : We out here playing chess, while my man is playing 7 dimensional tic tac toe

kummer45 : I had this suggested video in Youtube. I thought this was about chess. What I got? An exquisite exposition of the finest art ever.

tony huckip : I know vishwanathan anand only

Cleavicus Maximus : The feeling when youtube recommends actual good content instead of those generic "top 10" lists is amazing. I'm not even into chess but this was a joy to watch. I liked the play by play part so I could follow it. Have a like.

Mike Ratkiewicz : Really enjoyed the video man. Definitely going to check out what else you have.

DumbUp : I think I like chess now... Thank you for this great video. <3

Snake Doctor : Great sacrifice, but Bobby Fisher's sacrifice is IMO the greatest sacrifice in chess history.

Candi Soda : 0:48 I didn't even know you can do that in chess lol..

Don Scott : that's pretty classy of you to recommend your viewers to check out another few channels on youtube would actually do that

Kasia Wesołek : I thought that if he won't win, then the queen would be killed 😂

Anas kh : Does Jessica Fischer the sister of bobby fischer ?

Dave Bryant : B O G D A N O F F

Pat Phanaryuwattana : Been a year since i’ve subscribed but this is the video i keep coming back to

Colin Davies : That queen sac took a lot of guts.

John Doe : *He's protecting the bishop like it's made of gold.* 6:13

Fritz Vold : Two books by Neishstadt are recommended for anyone wanting to develop their ability to find sac opportunities and other tactical themes during their games. each chapter covers a tactical theme and provides plenty of positions from actual games as exercises. the books are 1. Test Your Tactical Ability; and 2. Queen Sacrifice. ck avail. online from amazon or USCF online sales.

Johnny Pastrana : Rasheed is from another planet...just an amazing game Antonio!

TheWickedViper : I dont even know how to play chess that well,why is this in my recommending

bird718 : that was a brilliant game, its mind blowing

Blood of Kings6 : I think Rashid managing his pawns and rooks so well in the beginning really setup that endgame. He inevitably had more room to hide his king while still being offensive with the rooks and knights. It was just getting past that mid-game hiccup that was the trick. Well thought out. 40 minutes of what could happen if I sacrifice this queen. Maybe Chernikov should have stayed at the table.

Victor Lopez : I was looking up Rory mercury when I was brought here

Germán Palomares : I liked the quote adove. Congrats

Mista Acap : Beautiful

John Nguyen : who here because of YT's recommendation :D

100 Sub without videos _k : Whats next 10 people who Deleted system 32...

Marcus Layug : Why is this in my recommded

David Badillo : It must be almost traumatic to be in the middle of your stroll 'with the draw in the bag' only to have your thoughts interrupted by the news "excuse me sir, your opponent just sacked his Queen"... a big bucket of cold water on your head!
