  1. I couldent focus on the game because I was thinking time is running out…..

  2. Love this kind of content, super educational, thanks Anna!

  3. As a newer chess player I have difficulty developing the plan of attack. What/where/how can I learn attacks? Is that what you mean by tactics?

  4. 7:42 "What other things am I seeing here"
    idk but I'm seeing 3 minutes down on the clock and stressing out about it

  5. Never start attacking with one or two pieces…….first bring all your pieces out.

  6. Thank u Anna for helping me and inspiring me to get better at the game love ur content

  7. Anna: 5+5 is too fast if you are under 1200

    Me only playing 3+0: nervously sweating

  8. the ending is unbelievable – two big mistakes by black? why? good info nevertheless ty

  9. You can't be giving advice to people at this level If your losing at mid game. Your barely better then these guys. 2000 rating isn't good compared to 2500

  10. I was having trouble paying attention because of so much time running off her clock…

  11. Idk anyone over 1200. I thought people the highest someone got was 122 years old.

  12. Most beautiful female chess player. 😍

  13. You uploaded this Video just when I needed it! Thanks very much! This will definitely help me, because I also get frustrated sometimes and make those kind of "intuitive" moves, when I instead should think it through.Great content!

  14. Anna: trying her best to give us a lot of information

  15. This content would be better if you weren't taking ELOs from your opponents (just like Kevin does) ; That doesn't seem fair for me :o)

  16. thanks for explaining everything.πŸ˜ƒ

  17. I watch this channel because of the sexy Swedish/Spanish girl (and get sweet ASMR mom/hilarious dad)… Not cause of the chess. It's the same reason most people watch the Botez sisters, honestly. Lol πŸ˜†πŸ˜œ

  18. Yes, please do a video for under 1600 rating.

  19. 26:20 "my opponent blundered another fork"
    It is very common among beginners to attack some piece but do not look where that piece may to go (let alone to look for all other possible moves that their opponent has).

  20. Old beginner chess player here. Tyvm to WFM Cramling for taking the time to share concrete & practical explanations for newbies like me!
    Hope she makes more content like this, and maybe considers bumping up the time control (maybe 10+5 or something) to allow more time to talk through ideas.
    Not lots of down-to-earth chess content out there like this!πŸ™

  21. Amazing how experience & "rules of thumb" can get many pieces interlocked for protection.

  22. Hello Anna, Can you tell me what microphone you use to get such good audio? Thanks

  23. thank god i am not at that level anymore lmao, it was so nerveracking

  24. As you explain, I keep worrying you will run out of time, but then you win anyway. Wow! πŸ₯³πŸ‘

  25. thank you for these videos anna! am currently on an endeavor to reach 1000 elo πŸ˜…

  26. Although I'm a little bit higher rated than the target audience,always loving the instructive vids πŸ˜€

  27. Learning about pins and developing pin situations will help this group.


  28. Great advices! Thank you:) already improved by at least by 200 just by watching this videoπŸ˜‚

  29. Please more like this!!! I've been on 1100 – 1200 for so long!

  30. Another Apple for my favourite teacher!! 🍏 ❀️

  31. Anna: I don’t know why opponent is taking so long for that move.
    Also Anna: talking to the camera for a minute during a bullet game πŸ˜‰

  32. Anna talks and explains while 3 mins down.
    Meanwhile Me in same time position – SHOULD I RESIGN?

    P. S. – hope people get it that it's a joke coz I know she is an Expert
