Hikaru Nakamura vs Chess Brahs

Any preferences? I have watched way more Hikaru videos but he is starting to get a bit annoying now that he sees himself as a professional streamer. I saw Aman's impression of Hikaru the other day and thought it was hilarious. Aman's speed run to 2000 where he sacrificed his queen at the opening of every game was also pretty inspiring. I have shed several hundred points off of my 10 minute rating since watching that because it is a ton of fun to play that sac line with white.

Hansen of the Brahs is by far my favorite chess streamer. Good mix of entertainment and skill.

Naka easily. He talks about the widest variety of things while playing...even other SuperGM's. He clearly cares about cultivating his paying audience. Frankly, it's downright fun to watch as well.

Well I can't stand the name Chess Brahs or any of the content they produce. That makes this an easy one for me.

Thought this was pretty good.



Aman > Eric > Hikaru (entertainment wise)

Naka is extremely annoying, some would even say hes a d..ck. But chesswise, they are in different leagues.

Is Naka though? I felt that way when he was much younger but in the last few years he really seems to me to be a pretty mature guy. He also really seems to go out of his way for fans, helping people, etc.

Re: Hikaru Nakamura vs Chess Brahs

His facials annoy me a lot, I find him theatrical. He HAS to be aware people are looking at him online when he stares at the ceiling, makes faces and shakes his head in approval or disapproval. In this, only Nepo is worse. Compare them to Grischuk, Aronian or Carlsen.
