If you’re a fan of Chess and have been watching Twitch Chess streamers or Chess Youtube channels, you may have heard of the term, “juicer”. And you may or may not have heard this term exclusively from the Super Grandmaster, the one and only Hikaru.
What Is a Juicer in Chess?
A Juicer is a term coined by Hikaru and is not an actual Chess term defined by Chess organizations. Call it a slang word. Hikaru defined a Juicer as: “A juicer is whatever you want it to be, the juice is the juice“.
If you ask me, that’s pure poetry. Music to my ears.
