    Who was Maurice's hype man?

    There is entirely too much talking going on, and Maurice’s aggression when moving pieces on the board is unnecessary.

    @proper_amount It’s just too much trash talking, or spectators making comments about Maurice’s opponent. That’s one thing I hate about chess being played in the park. The fact that it’s blitz chess, a person needs to concentrate even more. It’s not a basketball game. The one old guy is hovering over the game making snide comments.

    He’s playing on 1 minute what do u mean it’s unnecessary, he wasn’t overly aggressive just moving quick. Also who said chess needs to be played in a quiet setting

    Maurice used TWO HANDS to adjust the same piece multiple times, he kept his hand and part of his arm ON THE BOARD for about 15 seconds, and put pieces down sloppy almost touching adjacent squares. Nice going INFLATED RATED "grand master".

    If Maurice was even given a 1 second increment this game would’ve been unfair. His opponent is probably rated around the 1800-2000 level to be able to hang with him that long, so props to that guy!

    Pawn to e5 would lead to bd5, which is a fork for black. The engine says that white gets an advantage after pawn to e5 and I think Maurice saw that. GMs are not humans

    Instead of taking Maurice knight wit his rook he could have kept taking his pieces from his bishop to his rook “2:30”

    @Brittany Hall yeah, technically, you are simplifying the game that way, making it have less pieces. Since you have more time, and anytime you have a disadvantage, you should try keep your pieces on the board, because you can still find traps and complicate the position... But it is difficult to analyze it in a couple of seconds. It is important to look at non conventional moves because sometimes it gi es you advantage (if capture with check or smthg like that)

    Yeah that’s true but he had no way out but he could of at least tried to slow him down by taking that bishop maurice would have moved his piece to threaten the knight then they would be swapping knight but you right Maurice has the upper hand but he could have slowed him down
