  2. Hope you continue this format. You make these GM games more accessible than other channels like agadmator. Great job

  3. Thanks for the update Anna, I missed if you beat Megan or not 🤣 it was a long game for the stream and I had to leave 🤔💜

  4. Your so pretty ! Oops 🤭I mean the Knight is so pretty ! Just kidding , love to watch your analysis. Makes me want to play chess

  5. Hi, Anna…, Excellent video and very informative, and "Thank you" for sharing the video… I ( enjoyed ) the chess games and your excellent comments… * Anna…, you are bright, intelligent, and attractive… " Semper Fi " Mike in Montana 🙂

  6. Damn girl. Take a breath once in awhile. Lol.

  7. Hi all and sorry for my dumb question but why is Hikaru not participating in this tournament?

  8. I’m a new fan dude I’m the Ghost

  9. I sounded like a blockbuster movie…😅

  10. Hi there Anna I this stream on Tata Steel. By the way the Magnus game with bishop on G5 doesn't need to take on f6 as it has an interesting move targeting the C7 pawn with the Queen together for some disruption on the Queen side.Thank you for the report keep up your great work and look after your voice..

  11. You are a very entertaining commentator. I love your energy and excitement after the moves. You make watching chess fun.

  12. Love how you simplify these incredibly complex positions, and GREAT game choices! TY!

  13. Anna this was great your enthusiasm jumps through the TV screen.
    I would love to see Mom and/or Dad co-host with you
    Pia is a genius
    Juan is a silent assassin

  14. At 31:35: maybe I don't see something obvious, but what's wrong with white Q takes f5?

  15. How does the game continue after moving the white queen to E7 (check) on 33 min. and 31 sec, would that be a smart move?

  16. Pretty much any person that you follow except Nakamura I guess.

  17. You are killing it Girl! You seriously are the Bees Knees and the Cat's Whiskers! GO Girl GO!

  18. Why has Alireza not been active recently? Anyone knows?

  19. Are these guys making some pretty good money for doing well in tournaments like these, and are they getting more popular with top talent like this one?
    What say you? (I don't know)

  20. how me are here for the women and not chess ? because there are better chess content creators than her! ( Including me )

  21. Just an FYI: Richard Rapport is Hungarian (though plays for Romaina) so his name is pronounced as Ri-Hard not Ri-CHard, like you would a German Richard's name.

  22. Thanx for insightful explanation Anna! Love it!

  23. why hikaru doesnt play in this tournoument???? he is not that good?? btw i am new at chess

  24. Why didn't he take check mate with the rook?

  25. Why ain't Levy playing… I think there's been an oversight!

  26. you're really so beautiful and intelligent; killer combo 😀

  27. HOW could someone as beautiful as Anna be into a goofy looking dork with hair like Magnus? It looks like he is in a contest with sbf to see who can have the dumbest looking clown hair lol. ONE thing for sure… if beautiful people like Anna promote chess then chess is gonna be more popular lol 🙂
