  1. 6:13 if you starting with an excuse (less time or so πŸ˜‰ ), then you lost the game probably πŸ˜‰ lets see …. wow i watched it. wow

  2. Common Juan W- instantly tells daughter what her opponent's style is and predicts her opening… Checks his own pairings, smiles, then leaves. Top G

  3. Congratulations πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

  4. It's 1:48 am. Yes, I know these situations after exciting games (especially when I lost). I can't fall asleep until it is VERY late and afterwards I dream of the game, see situations on the board and often wake up again. During a tournament a really bad and unwelcome situation because the next opponent is coming up…

  5. it was a chicken lol why did she say it was something like a chicken but wasnt. Maybe she meant rooster

  6. Your English is so good (I mean I understand what you are saying). But I really prefer when you are talking with your parents in Swedish. The relationship with your parents is amazing.

  7. I'm now at 9:05 of the video. You really spent 50 minutes for 2 moves in the opening??? That's a BIG credit for the rest of the game. I'm excited how it will continue.

  8. A cock was the word you were looking for πŸ˜‚

  9. Wow, so she pretends not to know what a rooster is…fake anna stop it

  10. A great way to comment on a game apart from being lovely and entertaining …, and yes, she does speak swedish very well … β˜ΊοΈπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ͺπŸ‡±πŸ‡§πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²

  11. Hearing you speak to Pia in Swedish is the sweetest thing ever.

  12. You should be happy. You didn't win but facing a GM for the first you didn't lose. So nice work

  13. Great result. Good start to the tournament.

  14. Great game, Anna. Now I know why your Mom was so proud… I whish you much success and great games during the other rounds.

  15. It's a rooster🀣wow your amazing Anna keep up the amazing chess

  16. That bird was a little red rooster. The stones made a song about one. Well done on the draw Anna.

  17. Congratulations! Excellent game play! You have every right to be happy about that round. I'm amazed that you have never soon a rooster or male chicken before, but then I remember Sweden is much like the US where most people don't know where their food comes from. When I visited Sweden the first time, of course we asked where we could find some good Swedish food. You might thought the answer would have been directing us to Swedish meatballs, but all 4 people recommended to us McDonalds! We ate pizza as it is very popular there. Love your videos and personality. You make chess fun to watch, imagine that!

  18. I was curious what rating your father had in this tournament.
    Btw congratulations πŸŽ‰πŸΎπŸŽˆ

  19. Congratulations! At my level I'd almost swear every one of my opponents is a grand master, just without the title.

  20. Well done, a draw with black versus 311 higher rated!
    After thinking really hard I decided it should be a cock πŸ˜‰

  21. Such a fresh idea for video, everyone have the same format when they show they games . This is the hole experience.

  22. If you meet the dad he should play the "muu" opening πŸ˜‚

  23. thank you for your great videos Anna! i started playing online a little because you reminded me how fun chess is! πŸ™‚

  24. congrats. Keep on enjoying the experience.
    Looking forward to the match with dad.

  25. Anna that's really really amazing you had a draw against a grandmaster I believe the next time your gonna win I believe you can your amazing Anna πŸ™πŸ’blessings from New Zealand

  26. No sabe ni nada Anna. Entre partida y partida, a prepararlas en las playitas de Mallorca y desayunado churros. Eso en Islandia no se puede hacer…

  27. Great result. I am sure you mom will support her own daughter over a good friend.

  28. Well done Anna! Best wishes from Iceland πŸ™‚

  29. You've already played Magnus. Admittedly it wasn't in a tournament, but still you have played the best so you should feel more relaxed now.

  30. Best of luck to you Anna in your next round of matches.

  31. Anna, I've been watching you for so long, I've watched your games and streams for a while and I gotta say that I'm really proud of you.

  32. Why on earth do you look so flaming skinny honey?

  33. Such a goof πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β€

  34. Wow! Your best game by FAR. Bravo! Had you taken the f4 pawn with the pawn rather than the Knight, you would have had a completely winning position. I actually liked Qa5, because after that there's no way you can lose. Hey, and you had black!Β 

    I think your current true rating is definitely over 2200. You are following Nakamura's path: your streaming and content creation seems to augment your strength rather than being a liability. I think the reason for this is that you study many games deeply and you then need to express in words your UNDERSTANDING to your viewers, which in turn DEEPENS your overall understanding of chess.Β 

    Believe in yourself, study seriously every single day, stop completely playing blitz, and in 2 years max you'll definitely become a GM.

  35. Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed this new format πŸ™‚ FYI I just realised that the names in the analysis board are wrong, I had the black pieces and my opponent had the white pieces. Sorry about this but hope you enjoy the video!!! Have a fantastic day πŸ˜€
