  1. This young woman is an extraordinary teacher, she explains clearly and directly exposes the fundamental positions and strategies of the London System, I follow several tutorials from Great Masters and you will see this beautiful young woman is the best. Thank you

  2. I should watch this tutorial of yours as well. The way you think on what to move and why is deep, but hopefully I can find your logic … Btw, how about organising your very own Chess Masters Tournament. Only players who are Masters and below can enter. You could have a load of Chess celebs with games across multiple channels … What do you think? You like this one?

  3. This is a great refresher. Nice job Andrea. Thank you

  4. Thank you so much for sharing these codes! I can't wait to try them out and see what kind of rewards they give

  5. How about the best opening for black, brown, and yellow people too?

  6. Fabulous chess content younger Miss Botez! 🙌♟.

  7. In my opinion you are already good at chess , all that makeup does not make much sense , tho . You don't want your channel to be run by simps .

  8. Ha! I learned chess from a Scotsman years ago. I started looking into books. But I knew to beat him, I can never study enough. He was a club player. I started playing my own style. I came up with this opening with some move order errors after losing a lot of games to low rated players… sigh. Anyway, some of the ideas must've stuck. It seems I reverse e gineered a Londonesqe opening myself. Wow. I dont know any openings. I play for fun, Its not serious.

  9. I'm sorry, it's 4am, nobody is reading this… but i'm like, in love with Andrea's voice. And she's soooooooooooooooooooo smart and so strategic with her game. I'm sorry, ya'll. Cringe simp whatever. I'm veryyyyyyyyyyyy attracted to people like her. What's my type??? My type are girls who try to be the "best in the world" at shit. She's like, so freaking attractive to me. Her bubbly, spontaneous personality just doesn't seem like it'd match up with that of a "professional chess player" but she is exactly that and I think the contrast/perfect fit is just so funny & addictive for people to witness. Does that make sense? idk. You just don't see people like her out there in the world. She's so rare.

  10. Trying to learn from this video makes me realize how stupid I actually am when it comes to chess. I feel like it's going through one ear and out the other but I'm really trying to retain this information. There's so much to consider! Sheesh. I'm gonna London all the way to 1,000 ELO, let's goooooooooooooooo

  11. Not too sure what she’s saying. But she’s crazy smart.

  12. So I thought Chess was complicated until I watched this… now I know it's complicated!

  13. maybe do a course on an opening where I don't fall asleep watching it Okayeg

  14. love from india🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳

  15. Villainous. Terrible, boring opening. Gg

  16. From chess to biology , Andrea went too far 😂 0:10

  17. Andrea botez: "the best opening for white." "the London system." "opening crash course: the london system."

  18. So atleast she knows mitochondria is the power house of the cell

  19. “The London system is best boi”
    -Andrea probably

  20. This is the opening for people who have bad memory and/or dont want to learn much theory
