  1. Don't go too fast moving the pieces. Teaching is not about racing.

  2. Thank you for the tips, i will always keep it in my mind

  3. Andrea, you're adorable!
    Yet very informative 🧐

  4. Does it annoy anyone else that the last rule had the caption of 'Rule #9', instead of 'Rule #10'?

  5. Broooooo I didn’t even know castling was a thing!!!

  6. you made it soo easy for me to learn you have cute voice loved it ……………..

  7. Helpful for a beginner like me. Thank you.

  8. Idk..in my limited experience, automatically going for the castling is not always the best strategy. Sometimes just moving the king off the back (cornered) line is better

  9. There's so many "win quick in so many moves" videos that in reality rely upon very specific moves that rarely happen.

    That's what makes this so refreshing. Wonderful video.

  10. You are an excellent teacher Andrea, less stupid nonsense and more of that. 🧠👍

  11. honestly clicked because she's hot I don't play chess

  12. Glad to see a hot Romanian teaching chess.

  13. i dont even know how to play chess shes just hot and i like when she tells me what i should do

  14. I train The Trainers for a living. What I have learned is that it is not enough to know the subject you are training, but how you communicate what you know, to others…
    This video is one of the best examples I have come across.
    BRAVO
    You ARE a winner in my book
    ✅🍀🙏🏻

  15. Best guide I've seen for stuck beginner rated player like me.

  16. Thanks for putting this it help to make my cofedece dissapiear

  17. I won my first game after watching this video

  18. I appreciate this video revisiting chess after 30 years, pre-YouTube. Subbed

  19. Thank you so much!!! This is so unbelievably helpful

  20. Andrea do more of these videos. I am just a 400 level beginner who just randomly plays a few games when bored, and this helped a lot.

  21. Hi Andrea…, Excellent video and very informative, and I hope you do ( more videos ) like this one… on maybe tactics or strategy and openings and even end games… You are bright, intelligent, and attractive, and thank you for sharing the video and excellent chess information for ( all ) levels of chess play… Once again…, thank you for sharing the video, and I hope to see more ( instructive chess videos )… You are a very good to excellent chess instructor… You are bright, intelligent, and attractive… Your friend always.., Mike in Montana P.S.: I am happy that I signed up for your YouTube Channel, and I hit the bell, too… Mike in Montana 🙂

  22. Unrelated, but I swear Andrea sounds like Susie Carmichael

  23. @ 6;24, what the hell is a different?

  24. Not going to lie, but as much as I try not to like these chicks, this was a good video; short and to the point. My adhd usually has me fighting to watch chess videos.

  25. i watched this video and got my first win , nice

  26. Love ur channel, makes me want to play chess again. do u guys play any video games?

  27. lovely tricks and you are😍🤩😘

  28. You talk way too fast and rush through dozens of moves without explanation. Where can I find a real video for beginners?

  29. Thank u. I know how to move the pieces and such, but I have zero plan. Never been taught and rarely play. Thank u for this video
