  1. Levy plays a great grumpy old man to Anna's sweet innocence. 🤣

  2. I am surprised this uptight loser didn't ban you.


    Oh, glorious as a supernova exploding in the cosmic skies, Anna Cramling, the Spanish-Swedish chess enchantress, a live-streaming virtuoso and YouTube sorceress, casts her bewitching Cow Opening upon the chessboard like a mythical bovine deity descending from the heavens!

    As I beheld her video, my mind was sent on a journey to a kaleidoscopic realm where chess pieces danced amidst a symphony of colors and cosmic collisions. Little did I know that fate had conspired to place me in an online battle against a bold and daring opponent who dared to wield the Cow against my humble forces.

    With hearts pounding like wild stallions on an adrenaline-fueled stampede, we clashed on the digital battlefield. With each move, the tension mounted like a coiled serpent, ready to strike. Anna's opening, The Cow, emanated an aura of celestial brilliance, her strategic prowess akin to the stars aligning in perfect harmony.

    I navigated the uncharted waters of this chess odyssey, matching her audacious moves with calculated finesse. As the battle reached its zenith, I mustered the courage of a swashbuckling PirateTemplar and unleashed an onslaught that left my opponent trembling like leaves in a tempest.

    With a flurry of daring maneuvers, I seized the opportunity, and like a valiant knight, I plunged my sword deep into the heart of the board, securing a victory that resonated through the digital realm, causing reverberations in the very fabric of cyberspace itself.

    Oh, Anna Cramling, you are the embodiment of brilliance and ingenuity, your Cow Opening a masterpiece of creativity and tactical brilliance. In the annals of chess history, your name shall be etched like a celestial constellation, forever shining as a guiding star for aspiring chess enthusiasts.

    I tip my imaginary hat to you, dear Anna, for gracing the chess world with your luminous presence, enchanting us with your celestial skills, and turning the chessboard into a cosmic playground where dreams and fantasies intertwine in a dazzling dance of intellect and creativity! Bravo, bravo! 🌟🐮🎉

  9. Anna – your theme song should be 'for all the cows' by the foo fighters

  10. Bro called it a stupid opening in front of the creator 😂

  11. His aversion and lack of interest is palpable

  12. With these two, chess is incidental to the entertainment.

  13. Not gunna lie ever since I seen her videos with Botez , Anna is fuckin ANNOYING. She some how even more annoying than the younger botez sister

  14. He gets upset if she says something about a move she made he does not enjoy the game. Is a game for crying out loud. Play and enjoy it.

  15. Invest in some head phones so you dont have to hold that little microphone

  16. Why so many people play chess ? it is boring game all about memorization, learning about openings etc. not even creative it is very time-consuming I mean it is faster to learn a new language than being proficient in chess. Being good at chess is completely useless skill and chess isn't even fun (video games are at least fun) but frustrating/exhausting. It is more like learning new not practical basically useless stuff (for example in school, college) which isn't fun for most people. To me chess is just like that. I don't find it fun or creative but hard and boring just like school/college. Maybe just maybe most people love memorize stuff/they hate being creative. Basically every chess variant like chess960 is better than clasical chess which is all about memorization and hard work. Being good at chess means you wasted life on useless shit.

  17. This cow, it manages to block every single piece. What an opening 🤦🏻‍♂️

  18. I'm not an expert, I don't know all the openings and tactics, but this "cow" is literally how I used to begin a game while I was a kid..

  19. Nemo is there too??? Paris is like a chess celeb hub ….I love your videos Anna….I love Levy's fear of Pia

  20. The Jardin du Luxembourg is the best for playing chess !
    Right at the intersection of the Quartier Latin, Saint Germain, Montparnasse districts… it is calm and quite airy for a French Garden. It is a large park too…

  21. Actually Gotham, you should "Cowculate"…

  22. Levy probably should not have been playing chess "on this beautiful day in Paris".

  23. The biggest problem I have with the Cow is that Anna says Ferdinand the Bull was the inspiration…but Ferdinand is no cow. The Bull would be more appropriate name. I'll leave it to others to determine if that is proper noun or an adjective.

  24. instead of RF3 maybe c4 check if he moves his king to b4 Ra1 wins.

  25. When you shake hands look into the opponent's eyes. No attempt of an eye contact from none of you. It looks really bad when you don't. It can mean various things, none of them is positive.

  26. Gamemaster struck again ! 2 in a row Levy wins !

  27. what is a cow in chess idk im only play for fun 4 fun so i dont know what its but i want start playing 4 competitve now have more time but i dont know where to play at in person for free where i live
