I've watched this video several times and I think that if there was ever a poll for "Best chessvideos.tv video ever posted" this would be king of the hill. Curtains would obviously be very well represented but I don't think I have ever seen a more entertaining chess video in my life (and I've seen 95% of the curtains videos but was too lazy to post on them)

Wow, just wow. What a game.

SPOILER ALERT:




I specifically learned the bishop and knight checkmate (in part thanks to your vid on it) just to be able to humiliate someone like this! ZIBBIT STYLE!

But I think you messed up, the opponent could have claimed a draw in the final moves. The last capture was on move 85 and you checkmated him on move 141. He had 6 moves to claim a draw but he didn't click on the draw button because of the time scramble. I admit I was getting nervous at the end!

That was the most distressing thing I've ever seen. And I just watched Salo the other day, so that gives you some kind of benchmark...

Another B+N mate, had about 20 seconds left when he took the last pawn. Not super strong technique but managed ;-)

Very nice! Though it's hard to imagine what you would have to do to top the epic bout with Variance... At least the end result didn't vary... :)
