  1. This was the best beginners video I have found. Interesting that, with a game which seems to be dominated by men, it was a woman who managed to give great, useful advice without any jargon! Thank you Andrea.

  2. Thank you. I’m a beginner and I can’t even buy a win on the app yet 😢

  3. Thank you for explaining for my limited addition ass😂😂😂

  4. I bet she carves her own chess pieces out with a buck 120 hunting knife.

  5. – me starting a video with full focus to learn as a beginner
    – youtuber: move your pawn to the center
    – me: WE SAID FOR BEGINNER!!!!!

  6. Her voice is a musical instrument

  7. Straight to the point . Super informative and concise. Great job. 😊

  8. I've just lost a game for not castling soon enough 😢

  9. I'm a brand new beginner. After using these strategies i actually started winning games! Before, the only time I won is when the other person disconnected.

  10. I am stuck in 1300 elo i practice daily but stuck in same rating how to improve

  11. This is exactly what I was looking for. My son-in-law is coming over in 2 nights…. have to represent the older generation properly. THANKS!

  12. Very Impressive! I was trying to find ways to disagree but every step is on point!! Great amazing video for chess.

  13. 8:18 Bc6 is not available because knight takes bishop

  14. After watching the video and tried to consciously implement some of the strategies that I don't always have in my game I went on a losing streak and my elo fell 100 points🥲

  15. i love your voice, especially when you say “bishop”

  16. You NEVER change, of coarse.. BUT,
    you do LOOK smarter with glasses. I suggest you wear them!

  17. First video I've watched of yours, got me to subscribe was a good watch 👏

  18. Rule # 11 ( Never castles early in London system or you'll miss an opportunity) 😂

  19. 7:11 isn't knight to h5 a thing? Then if takes its checkmate.. isn't it?

  20. So nice when Andrea was just a regular person.

  21. Hard to concentrate on the game here. I can't stop looking at the square at the bottom right

  22. So disappointing to see all the creepy comments when you click newest first. Nobody does this to mape chess players, you're not only objectifying her by focusing on her looks, you're literally insulting her intelligence and expertise.

  23. You're voice makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

  24. I much prefer videos like this that provide general guiding principles instead of endless sequences you're supposed to memorise. Those sequence videos become increasingly unlikely with each move, and I find they almost never play out.

  25. Awesome video! Went from a terrible beginner (been playing on and off for years) and winning 1 in 10 games, to winning 7 games in a row after watching this video a couple of times Clear and straight to each point, thank you!

  26. If you tell me I need to focus on the center 4 squares for opening, telling me why would help a lot

  27. Excellent video! Very helpful. Thank you for this.

  28. How sexy is a smart woman who play chess ❤💜
