  1. Fantastic comeback to the tourney scene. Watching matches is such an honor and a pleasure.

  2. I feel like this is getting way overlooked, but why is there no microwave in the hotel??

  3. Thanks for being honest with your score at the end 😅. Still good most of us are lucky to be a few hundred points

  4. Love watching you play! You and your sister are so cool.

  5. You need a better support system. Those coaches or whatever you want to call them are hurting your confidence, which is so important in chess.

  6. Really an excellent video, and such a great idea. This reminds us all that you're really a top-notch player, not just a Twitch/Youtube poser (not that I ever thought that!)

  7. I just started getting onto chess myself. Love the video sis ❤️

  8. How did this happen, two years ago she was so average!!! Good for you girl

  9. You and your sister and Gotham make me enjoy chess a lot. I want to meet all three of you some day

  10. It's actually hilarious, I thought BOTEZ live was clickbait and had no idea until recently that they actually play chess…. Seeing Alessandra playing 2100🔻 rocked but was also a reality check

  11. I like this kind of content. Good tournament too!

  12. “It’s weird because your opponent is next to you” 😂

  13. She’s a year older than me. Wtf am I doing with my life🫠

  14. What a sweet person and great chess player! Find the video very heart warming 🙂

  15. Oh my God you guys are polish that explains everything to me now

  16. Andrea has an impressive older sister who she has competed against for years. It's natural for a younger sibling to feel insecure when called on to perform.

    But for the same reason, she has learned to be bubbly having been dragged into social settings at an early age.

    She'll be fine.

  17. Was wondering when this would come out, I said hello in the hallway while you were looking at the draw. Congrats on a solid tournament

  18. This was so well edited and filmed. I felt like I was there. 10/10

  19. I’m probably alone, but I think a panda outfit would have helped

  23. And now we're learning that Papa Botez is a licensed arbiter! Total OG

  24. Congrats!! Also very interesting to follow along with.

  25. Andrea … YOU ROCK!!! … good job on the tournament – it takes courage to get out and compete, you did a great job! This is very inspirational for me – thank you for sharing this

  26. 1:00 the way there was zero reaction from anyone everytime she spoke… awks lol

  27. Very inspiring to search for "some kind" of competition, a hobby or a profession in which to be competitive!

    I think it sharpens the focus and gets yourself to grow. Although I cannot even understand the basic moves of chess (never learned it), it was inspiring to watch!

  28. The rythm of this video is way toooooo fast ! 👎

  29. Alex as Andrea's coach… Very good, very serious, very professional. 👍

  30. I watched a few of these streams live with hammer and Gotham. The last game was great

  31. Why did Minx use me as clout and then ban me from discord? If you know anything about it I would appreciate your help as it's disturbing my mental.

  32. The fact that i only looked at Thorben and KNEW he was a fellow German without seeing his name or the flag. Love it. We are so easy to detect

  33. You did such a great job Andrea! Hope to have you in Vegas again was a great time meeting you again!
