I really, really can't force myself to watch a 20-minute Rozman-video, I got fed up after like 20 seconds. Can you sum up what's going on?

He laments his decades-long time spent with chess and then goes over the most excruciating game between two 400 players (who use very little of their 10 minutes) and who engage in both brilliancies and errors, ending with White, down massive material and in mate-in-1 positions accidentally mating Black. The title is rather misleading, leaving us all wondering what part of chess he's done with. I'd be done with looking at games by dunderheads and devote more time to my own prep, were I to aspire to leap from IM to GM, but he never goes into that.

Thank you for the summary.

When I remember that this guy is the most popular chess content creator, I always want to cry.

Chess content creator? Hardly so.

But he is a decent entertainer for dumb kids, you can't deny that.

Dubious Distinction Award material for sure.
