In this video, I play against IM Levy Rozman (Gotham Chess) in Samay Raina’s fascinating new variant: Poison Pawn Chess. Here are the rules…
-Before the game we each secretly select a single non-center pawn to be our poisoned pawn.
-If a player’s poisoned pawn is captured at any point, that player wins — but with one exception: If a player uses their poisoned pawn to capture the opponent’s poisoned pawn, then it is considered a win.
– In our first game we played, poisoned pawns are not allowed to capture pieces. In the subsequent two games, poison pawns are allowed to make captures.
While the rules seemed a bit confusing at first, we quickly on the hang of it and had some epic battles…

Eric Rosen, International Grandmaster
There’s probably a hair on your screen
i love your content
How did Eric's c poison pawn capture at 38:28 .Poison pawns are not allowed to capture right
when the teacher says to speak on the spot , shit like this gets invented and sometimes it turns out good XDXDXD
This was such a fun stream ❤😂
that was entertaining
I made my own chess variant. If I send you a free set can you make a video on it?
Levy: What kind of tension?
Samay: PG-13 Tension 😂😂😂
Kiegcujvk hiet dqtoccje
for exemple ..if c poisoned pawn go the the d file is still poisoned ?
33:18 the sadness in Eric's voice 😷
The True Gambit.
i love how they all in front of greenscreens but without actually using them
Turn of captions
7:20 I feel like Eric's poison pawn is obvious because it is not capturing on e5. It would be safe to capture since Gotham's poison pawn cant be on the e file, but since eric's poison is the f pawn it cant capture.
The humorous journey dolly stare because border energetically increase pace a male quotation. hoc, unusual snow
Ah yes, another episode of guess the elo
At 9:52 if Eric played Qxc4, that would've been a big brain move.
11 minutes into the video, I thought I was watching levy. Now I have to watch it all over again to remember which pawn was poisoned….
I think both modes need programming Eric put Gotham in check with his poison pond this shouldn't be possible and it would really improve the game
Levy is so annoying
15:07 lmao did Samay really said “bhai nikaldo” (brother take it off) to levy and assumed he would understand Hindi.
did levy say the n word?? 31:07
22:29 ohh no my bishop hahahaha samay didn't get this joke
This is an amazing variation. It adds so much to the game, levels out more for new players. I'm going to try this irl by painting a skull or putting a sticker under two pawns and showing this to a friend. Thanks for sharing it guys.
pg 13 tension
oh my god, Levy's Russian accent here
what does OP stand for 😀
Someone please tell this man what the definition of a "piece" is in Chess.
Eric clearly never learned the rules.
Levy said Eric Bhai ❤️❤️❤️😂
should be called a "black hole" pawn because if you attack it, you get sucked in and lose, but it can't attack you unless you are another black hole, in which case it can suck you in
It's really funny variant but it is tough
34:10 BIG BRAIN GENIUS MOMENT THEY BOTH MISSED. QUEEN TAKES BISHOP (QXD6) IF THE POISONOUS PAWN TAKES THEN LEVIS POISONOUS TAKES BACK WINNING LEVI THE GAME
38:28 levys poison pawn captured
Lmao that throw
Brilliant idea. It kinda adds a little Stratego to the game. The only downside is that if they choose pawns at opposite corners of the board, then there's no chance at all that one poison-pawn will capture the other. Then again, I've watched only 4 minutes of this video. Maybe there's a detail I'm missing.

im a simple man, i see samay in the thumbnail, i click, i am happy, i am happy
I know Hindi
This should be played OTB.
"Who will *b*reak *f*irst?"
I think it’s absolutely hilarious that Levi thinks he’s a comedian
Wait what if I can f pawn takes something on the center and center pawn takes something on f line, so will the new centre pawn now still be poison lol
levy is so annoying
