  1. Yes, very instructive so would hope series continues. Thanks Anna & looking forward to your next video.

  2. My anxiety hits the ceiling when Anna spends 2 minutes of a 5 minute time control explaining things instead of playing. Lol

  3. I do not know how to telegram? And Concerned about scamers!

  4. She's cute but she talks so loud, oh my god !

  5. These videos are helping so much, thank you!

  6. that is amazing content ! thank you Anna

  7. Most people don't blunder a queen or a rook in one move at this level? It seems you've been out of this level for too long

  8. I watch and enjoy all chesstubers. But no one could ever explain why and how they are really good at chess.

  9. With London should always be going bishop g3 when challenged so can re take with the h pawn and open the file for the rook… it’s the best line even for beginners 👍

  10. I love these videos. Your lessons are so enjoyable! Please keep them coming.

  11. why are you shouting , or is it just me ?

  12. Why the bottom right square has a noise going on?

  13. I think the crucial point in the first game was not recapturing the knught at 8:12, as that would give black a really strong center, as well as not exchanging the good knight right after.

  14. I think you do this type of content really well. Im too weak of a player to appreciate really high level play so this is more my jam 😀

  15. your hair looks so soft hahah and great video tbh (crossharp)

  16. Hi Anna. If you look at my earlier comment, it looks like someone is trying to scam people with your account.

  17. Anyone else find adorable that Anna have a perfect fluently english, but she says the word move like Miuuuuve

    is so unique

    or am i wrong and people from Sweden pronounce like this ?

  18. I dont get how people always identify with being one elo rating. Like I am an under 1200 in 5 minute games or less, staying between 1000 and 1100 usually, though have been over 1200.
    Yet at the same time I hover between 1450 and 1550 in 10 minute games. 500 elo points is quite a big difference between these two time formats and its been this way for me for a long time.
    I watch Gotham Chess Guess the Elo sometimes and he rarely brings up the time control when making his guesses, yet to me its one of the main determining factors.

    Anna says if you are under 1200 then you should really be practicing playing longer games… but I'm not under 1200 at longer games 😅. Not even close and haven't been for years. Whats wrong with me? Or do others have this too?

  19. At 12:04 can anyone explain why they would capture her knight with the queen there? I'm still new and sometimes in these videos I'll see a piece not even discussed in the game plan as if it's obvious why they wouldn't move it. I saw the bishops attack supported by the queen but their queen could still just escape down the b diagonal

  20. Video: Watch if youre under 1200.
    Me, rated 1201: Hah, noobs!

  21. Really finding your instructional content helpful. You are particularly good at explaining Why an idea is a good one. Thanks! More please.

  22. Very good analysis of best chess piece positioning leading into the middle game especially in the 2nd game posted.

  23. Anna, you are amazing. Congratulations for the content! Keep up the good job sister !!

  24. I'm a beginner and I am so grateful for these videos, so thank you!

  25. Where the rating 0 video? 🤔 Need to start at the bottom, or level -1000

  26. Nice instructional video. Always helpful. Thanks for using London. Please do some more at 1500-1900 levels.

  27. How does time keep getting added towards the end of the game?

  28. Oh no i just figure it out that i only have played when i was drunk how stupid am i now im 1300

  29. I'm 1000 Elo and trying to reach 1500 as a goal life

  30. The way you teach is amazing. I feel proud to technically be a student under Anna Cramling. Maybe one day I might win against the computer or over the board even!

  31. Check. Capture. Attack. The way you explain the reason behind each move and why to move pieces where makes me want to keep playing chess. All too often I just can't figure out the why part when moving pieces. I wish I had an Anna telling me which way to go
