I discuss Chess.com purchasing Play Magnus and what that means for Chess24. I play the level two computer in 3D Chess Game Plus in today's edition of Man vs. Machine. And I announce we're having Psiren as a guest on my podcast On Top of The World this Saturday, with the world premiere of his single My Friend.

I'm not a big fan of Chess24, but at least I am able to get games unlike KasparovChess. It'd be cool if the company can continue, but I doubt it.
The Chessable British Championship game was really interesting, with white having two rooks, while black had the bishop's pair. I didn't get the right move at the pause the video moment.

After my lost to Komodo I hope to get revenge for humanity by defeating the engine used in 3D Chess Game Plus. This is the first time we see The Scandinavian Defense in the series.
This week Justin and I speak at great length on potential backstage drama between CM Punk and Adam Page in AEW.

This game does get insane. Carlsen is amazing with the knights. I didn't get the pause the video moment.

I apologize for the bad audio; I should have found a way to turn down the music in the software instead of just lowering the volume on my computer. Shout out to my pal Chris Gillard who made an intro for my series! Thanks a lot pal 💖

Another great game between these two. I was able to get the pause the video moment after looking at the position for a minute or two.
I didn't see the checkmating sequence Alireza had in the pause the video moment. Another incredible game between these two.
What an incredible game! Praggnanandhaa played either all or most of his moves were the best according to the engine. I think I got the pause the video moment pretty easy because of the way agadmator explained what was going on in the game.
I'm catching up on Gotham Chess' videos and this one is really interesting. I've been playing The King's Gambit and The French Defense, but I'm going to give these openings a try.

This week on the podcast we talk about The FBI searching Donald Trump's Florida home Mar-a-Lago. There's also news Alex Jones has to pay millions of dollars to families of the victims of The Sandy Hook shooting, with claims that it was a staged event. We talk about rumors about billionaire Tony Khan. Nature Boy Ric Flair has had his last match at the age of 73. We also talk about Jerry "The King" Lawler who still has matches at the age of 72.
Most importantly Justin has failed on 5 out of the 8 questions on from TCM's Ultimate Movie Challange, and his punishment listeners have to send him 5 mean tweets for each question he got wrong. There's already claims of him being friends with Burdur Smurf, and stealing his likeness called for an online comic called "Gophercules".

I like seeing a battle between Chess engines. I didn't expect Chessmaster to win here, but it's interesting that the first move it made out of theory it ran into trouble.

Congratulations to Ukraine for winning The Women's section of The 44th Chess Olympiad! As someone who is getting back into Chess it's wild to me these women have remembered 25 moves into theory. And I didn't see the moves that needed to be made in the pause the video moments.

As much as Gukesh is on fire in The Chess Olympiad I'm still surprised he defeated Fabi. If you looked at what shared when this happened, you'll see what the move was in the pause the video moment. Gukesh is now the number 2 player in India, behind Vishy, and the 16-year-old is now one of the top 20 players in The World.
This week On Top of The World Justin and Joshua discuss WWE's first "post Vince" premium event SummerSlam. There's a new trailer for AEW's first video game Fight Forever.

Another victory for Gukesh in the 44th Chess Olympiad! I thought about the move made at the pause the video moment, but I wondered what it was accomplishing. Well, the move ended up winning Gukesh the game.
Gukesh really knows his stuff, I would have castled into danger, but of course I'm not a GM. It's crazy that Shirov's blunder in this game was allowing black to control the c5 square.
You know it's going to be exciting when there's castling on opposite sides of the board. I saw the move made in the pause the video moment, really cool stuff. Another great win by Magnus.

It's wild that Gillan didn't make any blunders in this game and Magnus was able to checkmate him in a spectacular fashion. The dude really is on another level when it comes to Chess.

I feel like I really should have seen the move to make at the pause the video moment. There's still a lot I have to learn when it comes to Chess. Thankfully Wesley's win here means The United States draws with Uzbekistan in round 4.
I'll say that if I hadn't castled in a game I probably wouldn't have won, but Gukesh wins in style. And now India is ranked number 1 in the open section of the 44th Chess Olympiad.
I'm disappointed Fabi lost here, now Uzbekistan has pulled ahead of The United States in The Chess Olympiad. A great win by Abdusattorov, I couldn't find the only winning move at the pause the video moment, but obviously he did.
