World’s Strongest Bullet Chess Tournament ft. Magnus Carlsen as DrNykterstein | February 2019

This is a 2-hour bullet chess tournament, Lichess Titled Arena (LTA) February 2019, I provided commentary on while specifically observing World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen compete. This tournament has quickly become the world’s strongest, and in all likelihood fastest, bullet chess tournament. I livestreamed this event at Lichess Titled Arena February 2019 is held for titled chess players only, namely Grandmasters, International Masters, FIDE Masters, National Masters etc… Magnus Carlsen played under the account “DrNykterstein”. This was the 11th “Titled Arena” held by Its $1,000 prize pool goes to the top 5 players, with 1st – $500, 2nd – $250, 3rd – $125, 4th – $75, and 5th – $50. This tournament was played on February 9th, 2019.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.

  1. I joined lichess after watching this. Nice to know it starts you at 1500 so you can get curbed down to what your skill level is 😛

  2. 'lodewijkfrederk' is pronounced 'lowde(r)wike frayderick'

  3. I never thought bullet commentary could be so relaxing and precise. Jerry, your LTA series continues to be amazing. Keep it up!

  4. Playback to 0.5 and you got drunk jerry voice while explaining chess lol.

  5. I love the fact that his older videos have extremely serious tones and over the years he became the most hilarious, lighthearted, passionate, and incredibly skilled commentator

  6. Great stuff. Thank you for making videos like this

  7. Does anyone know the schedule? When the March tournament is scheduled for?

  8. At 5:39 Arka50 missed mate in 2 against Carlsen … lol ;P After Carlsen played Ke8, there was Qf8+, Kd7, Nf6# …

  9. How dose the scoring system work? When do they get 0 2 4 and what is Fire?

  10. 1:11:41 wow impresionante 4 damas en el tablero increible !!!!!!!!! bella partida

  11. As a causal fan of chess who has read some books on the game (mostly by Jeremy Silman), it boggles my mind how you evaluate these positions so quickly.

  12. 50:11 that move….. every pleb including myself is taking that rook and losing

  13. love your commentary, so soothing and entertaining

  14. This is why I'm not the biggest fan of bullet chess; it often comes down to who can press buttons the fastest.

  15. i lose on lichess lose hope come here watch carlsen play, goes back and win!!

  16. rebecca harris be bullying magnus everytime they play

  17. It must be frustrating for the other players like Penguin knowing they have almost no chance to win the tournament if Magnus is playing lol

  18. Jerry & Bullet are my medicine before sleep, damn you make me feel good.
    Thank you for all the work.

  19. Carlsen's Bullet Play + Jerry the King's Commentary = Ultimate Chess Spectacle

  20. lodewijkfrederik is Dutch, and is pronounced low-duh-wike fray-duh-rik. ('wike' as in 'like'). It will probably sound very English when you pronounce it, but that'll only make it funnier 😉

  21. 08:10 when you ask the computer who is winning in this position:

  22. Hardest commentary jobs:
    Well done as always

  23. Very enjoyable seeing ta with jerry comment..

  24. I listen to Jerry every night before bed, helps me get better at chess and fall asleep lol. Thanks Jerry!!

  25. I really hate that I enjoy chess and I'm so horrible at it.

  26. I don’t understand why sometimes they got 4 points for win and then 2 for win?
