  1. Watching your content has made a real impact on my game… saying I am thankful doesn't seem enough 🙏

  2. I always move the pieces to the center.
    Then I precede to lose anyway.

  3. I really appreciate this video, especially the part about considering where your piece is on the board as opposed to where your opponent's piece it at on the board when exchanging a piece as opposed to simply looking at the value of each piece irrespective of each piece's position . That makes so much sense but I had never thought of it that way before.👍👍👍

  4. It is important to remind beginners, when they're facing the possibility of an exchange, that all pairs have different values and that the bishop is higher than the knight when its mate is still around and less so when not, which is why you're better off ending up with two bishops than with two knights in an end fame.

  5. Thanks for that, Anna. I'd like your opinion on a Double Fianchetto opening and whether ceding the 4 center squares can be an advantage, sometimes. Thanks, again.

  6. I reckon her panda bear could beat me and do so before she had even finished eating breakfast 😢

  7. Your hair looks great 😘 and the smile too…..and yes your extremely good player thank you for the video

  8. Thank you for the tips. I play on an app, and I beat the level I was struggling with.

  9. I have beaten A LOT of friends due to this video THANK YOU Miss Anna 🎉

  10. i've watched magnus play and in a lot of games he moves the side pawns before central ones

  11. Honestly, Anna could teach me how to brush my teeth, and I’d still watch it

  12. Hot teacher. Sometimes exchanging wins games.

  13. I could never play you because you are very distracting

  14. My God. You’re beautiful and great at chess. Marry me?

  15. I have nightmares about blundering. Screaming nightmares.

  16. Ty Anna been playing for 45 yrs never to old to learn ! Watching video was fantastic made me better player instantly with your professional insight, can’t wait to play my brother again and instill your logic! Keep up the good work and beating those cocky New Yorkers in the park! P. S. Luv watching your mother play too ! She is a silent assassin! Was she your mentor?

  17. And then she created the COW setup 🤣🤣

  18. I would watch Anna show me how to add soap to a dishwasher.

  19. I’m rated in 1300s, does that put me in beginner category?

  20. 4:20
    Why does it make sence to go there with the bishop? It's the same at the other side when you play the Ruy López opening. The enemy can simply hunt your bishop back with his pawns? Why is this a good move anyways?

  21. I love your videos, thank you so much for making them, you make chess fun 🙂

  22. Anna is such a good explainer and explains extremely well abt wat we should and shouldnt do and why. So educational and informative! Keep up the good work anna and continue posting awesome content!😊

  23. I started playing chess 2 days ago and my score is 273 im absolutely trash 💀

  24. I lost 5 games in a row and was feeling very frustrated, just won my third in a row after watching this. Thank you!

  25. okay what 🤣 I legit watched this vid once out of curiousty played a gamne of chess ( im 200 elo btw) and just destroyed my oppenant in my first game after watching your vid. thanks

  26. This is a good video Anna. I can't tell you how many times I've moved pieces foolishly without calculating all the defenders on the square I was moving to. You explain it very well. Thank you

  27. Hello Anna, I love watching your videos and would love to play a game of chess against you sometime. I have not played in years, but just to meet you and play against you would be awesome! You would probably beat me in 10 moves or less, but it would still be fun and a great experience!

  28. Very well described and demonstrated! Among the best 15 minutes I've spent on YouTube this year! Thanks, Anna.

  29. it is isnt working out what moves can do it is forgetting it all : I can only do 3 moves (in my head) before forgetting

  30. Anna I just in love with you since THE first time I san you in You Tube. God bless you honney 🫠🫠🫠🫠🫠🫠🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰😍😍😍😍😍

  31. 2. Would you trade K for B with a pawn challenge

  32. So don’t move twice unless you have a strong bishop?
