  2. I lost a game to one of my friends. I can’t let that happen again .

  3. Really well done (and very helpful) Andrea! Thank you.

  4. Great job! Nice simple rules and well explained.

  5. Am I dumb or are these board pieces moving fast as fuck my brain had a hard time keeping up with this

  6. I feel like I'm loosing brain cells listening to her speak lmao all bad. I'm starting to think maybe she really is just a bimbo with a fantastic memory

  7. 3:35 I'm gonna make a bad move for white

    Computer: h3 is excellent

  8. 😍🤩💓 Cheers from Mexico, love watching you before sleep 😌

  9. Tbh i think andrea is more beautiful than alexandra

  10. This girl was getting destroyed and she turned off the live stream

  11. I love this video and she did a great job explaining for beginners. Can't wait for her sister to explain pro moves

  12. I appreciate the tips. Just starting to get back in to chess. Thx!

  13. Andrea: Castle before attacking.
    Alphazero: How about no.

  14. Double pawns most of the time strong so don't avoid them just learn when is ok when not!

  15. I’m new to this game ♟ …..in this fashion

  16. Thank you , you are helping me become a better chess Coach for my inner city youth kids in Chicago. Love sister girl❤️‍🔥🥂

  17. Noob here. That's me.

    Just learning chess. Still studying stuff and am not quite ready to go online atm. But is opening the mid the only option? Castle sounds like a great option to have actually tbh. But wouldn't predictability be a thing? Like I said. Am studying. Everything is in a form of a question. 😋 What about corner fortresses? Or split lanes? Or mid fortresses? Things will be getting captured. Whether willingly or not. Like I said. Am a noob. 😋

  18. I’m pretty sure I read an entire book that covered most of this- but she covered it all in under ten minutes 😂

    This is very helpful- thank you!

  19. thank you for this! only been playing for a couple of weeks & this was really helpful 😊

  20. Nice and simple. Super helpful. Thank you!

  21. I want to learn about that opening more. Has it got a name?

  22. I'm using these as my ten commandments! 😂
    Thank you very much!
