  1. In the first clip you show queen to d2 stops check offering queen trade and if they take your in a better position still and you can still castle but its not always necessary to castle

  2. This was really interesting. I'm going to try it right now. Thanks!

  3. Great video! I’m learning to play with my 6 year old and sadly he’s pretty close to beating me. My strategy is better but he can visualize the pieces and their movements better.

  4. Hey girlie x this is very helpful!! Could you please put a cursor or indicator of some sort for those of us who find it hard to follow the pieces when in battle 😅

  5. I am a beginner on probably 🤔 a level 2 😐 out of ten 😒 and this was very helpful 🙂

  6. Thank you so much for putting this in plain English. I'm still pretty much a beginner, and most strategy and theory videos either go so fast, or use terms I haven't learned yet while I'm still trying to get my footing.

  7. Repent your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior God is merciful and he will forgive you

  8. This video really helped me with my chess game.

  13. I hardly even play chess but I’m subscribing for the efficient video lol

  14. yeah not learing chess from a women thanks

  15. So … I’m new to chess – can I have video call lesson with you?😊

  16. for step 3
    anyone under 500 elo will never do it

  17. best and easiest to understand chess video i have ever seen👏👏

    most videos i seen they are talking too complicated and giving huge boring lectures with 20 minute long videos💀

  18. Great advice for chess beginners. Thanx!

  19. Why am I taking Chess advice from the lady who is known for hanging her queens?

  20. I played chess for 2y now im kinda good now but i wanna need more tios

  21. I've just played a game and lost, watching this made me realise how many mistakes I made. Great video

  22. After going straight to the point, this is the first time I've ever liked a video ever.

    I have never appreciated a video so much in my life

  23. She is excellent in explaining things…. Solid!

  24. the volume is soo damn low that i gave up watching the vid after 5 minutes. unfortunately because it looks like a good video, i just cannot har what youre saying in the enviroment im in. should master it louder. you have way more to go on

  25. Im a beginner again. I played as a kid.
    But. Opinions on your tips. (as if I'm qualified!)
    2. Castling sucks the opponent attack towards the castled King. So I like to leave it till it's a bit more developed. However, still early as I like to link the rooks.
    And that's it I loved the rest.Thanks.

  26. She seriously needs to get an agent and do voice over work for cartoons etc!!! Literally wasting her voice on these videos.
