  • All this looked like to me is simply lack of experience on both sides. Dnegs would usually get himself into trouble and have to get out of it. Poki would have a great early and mid game, then a couple of uncalculated moves would lead to a loss. Great games by both hope to see more.

  • Poki has surprisingly good instincts and tactics but lacks experience. I think she can at least reach Hafu's level if she put more practice into it.

  • "The opponent can always blunder" is so true for ranks under 800, as in my last game against a 600 level player, she made a queen from a pawn and then stalemated with a rook.

  • I've noticed in my bottom-of-the-barrel life on Chess.com (rock solid 600), there are a lot of 600 and 700 that are just really underrated. I've watch Levy tear down a lot of games from 1000 to 1400 players that make more blunders than a lot of 600s. Pokimane is a great example of that

  • Forget all of these cancerous haters. Keep up the amazing work, Levy! I am going through my Chess lessons and it makes me so happy to see you giving coverage to people who aren't just Grand Masters. What we should all be excited over is that Chess is finally getting the attention it deserves and is inspiring more and more people to learn it. As a community, this is a major win.

  • Respect to analyzing a 600 level game. Even though we don't want to admit it, like 50% of Chess players are below 800 rating and seeing games at our level helps us learn. Sure high level games help us learn too, but I honestly feel that I understand what's going on more here than I would a GM game.

    • There was this whole controversy about her supposedly abusing copyright laws, and even though it was debunked, the hate drowned that out. There was also a drama based on this guy who sexually assaulted and harassed her and her coworkers, but claimed to be led on by her, which made him think it was ok. But of course, people are just taking the excuse to hate on her and being willfully ignorant.

    • About 6 months ago there was a huge controversy where Poki was claiming copyright on videos where she shouldn't have. Objectively wrong, made her look like a jerk, and she made apology video and everything. But her playing chess is a redemption arch.
