    In the actual show, the first few moves have been changed and are not the same as in this video, but it is irrelevant to the game and the conclusion so I did not include this. Hope you enjoy the game :)

    15:19 that doesn't necessarily mean draw by repitition. the e7 knight could still go to g6 and the f8 knight stays where it is. that leads to the king being blocked and check mate.... or am I wrong? ^^

    There is no such thing as boring chess.. you only have good moves & bad moves. Good moves make for long battles, bad moves make for more concise battles.. To me the best chess is always played in closed positions.

    It's interesting when agadmator says at 12:35 that rook to a4 is the absolute best move now that both magnus and hikaru said that this was a crazy move and that borgov should be ashamed by it. They make it look as it was obvious, but for the mere mortals it's not really that obvious.

    Thanks for this video- I never played chess beyond high school and the seed of your analysis was great - not too fast. Quick question - have adjournments ever been allowed because as you say whether by chess machine or by human assistants - post adjournment you could never be sure that the outcome was the result of the only the player's mind. Finally - sad in the series they chose to lie about the real life female Chess champion -(Georgian - former USSR) Nona Gaprindashvili - 'never having faced men'. Totally unnecessary :( If there was a fabrication to be had, better it be that Nona fictionally weighing up the merits of assisting/supporting - in the Cold War era- the American Liz Harmon at the risk of being unpatriotic or indeed Nona herself fictionally forfeiting her own right to be best in the world as a female. That 'fiction' I could have lived with....

    The film makes me wonder why there isnt a woman world champion.

I dont think women are less smarter. What do u think ?

    I'm amazed from this analysis, seeing how much effort they put into making the chess games in the show seem as legitimate as possible. It's almost flawlessly convincing, even down to specific playstyles (i.e. Beth doesn't sacrifice pieces as much, Borgov is very aggressive in endgames). It would have been way easier for the director to be lazy and tell the actors to just "move the pieces around randomly, look like you're concentrating hard," etc. But they didn't. It's often very easy to tell when actors are faking a certain skill (music, games, sports) in movies/TV, and it can be pretty jarring. So I'm glad they didn't go with the fake and easy option for Queen's Gambit.

    Hey Agadmator! i really enjoyed the video, but i find myself wondering what would happen if at 15:22 in the video with the queen at d3, why the queen doesn't take the knight? it would break the draw by repetition, and while it's not an ideal trade, it does allow the game to continue and is viable for black since it would still come out to roughly the same position as white in terms of material (ending with the same amount of material for both players except white has rook where black has a bishop) what would happen there and do you find this a good continuation? i find it quite interesting :) thanks again for the great content!
