Magnus should of listened to Maurice here

instead of trying to argue with him

Magnus might be the better player than Maurice, but Maurice has a much greater chess understanding than Magnus.

Re: Magnus should of listened to Maurice here

yes maurice ashleys chess understanding is unrivaled, which is why he made it to mediocore grandmaster. magnus doesnt understand chess, he became world champion by luck

also this video is old and has already been discussed.

I didn't say Magnus didn't understand chess

Magnus is a better player than Maurice, but Maurice has a greater theoretical knowledge/understanding of chess than Magnus

Re: Magnus should of listened to Maurice here

Do you actually believe that or are you just saying it as a hot take?

Btw, I can believe Magnus does not have the most theoretical knowledge of everyone but Maurice seems like an extremely odd choice for someone who has more.

I also can't imagine Maurice would even take the statement seriously, he'd just laugh. Unless you mean something different than what theoretical chess knowledge entails.

that should ask the question then how can magnus be the best player in the world when he doesn't have the most chess knowledge?

Re: Magnus should of listened to Maurice here

I think that Magnus would have a very tough time beating Maurice using an engine. Let's not forget, that this is what Maurice is doing, he is looking at engine evaluations. Even more important, Magnus couldn't take on Maurice in a real fight. Maurice shouldn't be underestimated. Elo 2440 can be very deceptive.

Saying Maurice has a greater understanding of chess than Magnus is like you saying you have a greater understanding of what makes a good post than...anyone.

RedLights,

is this you?

Because if this is not you, how the **** are there two people in the world that believe this? Seems like a statistical impossibility to me.

Re: Magnus should of listened to Maurice here

Yeah, I've since skimmed both accounts' histories and have come to the conclusion that it's actually the same person. Whatever the **** is wrong with them will have to remain their secret, of course.

One thing is clear, though. They should "of" stayed off the internet.
