  1. My brain needs to speedup a bit to listen to Alice, but this is fine.

  2. She looks happy to use hairspray and lip gloss for the first time🙂. As the man says, "She's incredible."

  3. Achieving an International Master title at age 13 is truly remarkable. Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov did not gain their IM titles until they were 14!

  4. Nic (J Bruce Feynman Niccolo P. Bentulan) says:

    As a Filipinx, I am so happy for Alice Lee because Alice beat Wesley So ….

    …'s secret girlfriend Carissa Yip in 2023 uscc girls juniors. Like BECAUSE Alice beat Carissa, I have more evidence my theory that Wesley So & Carissa Yip started a secret relationship in 2022Aug at the 2022 Olympiad and thus underperfomed in their tournaments right after. For Wesley So it was 2022Sep – 2022Oct. Carissa had Stanford, so the underperformance started in 2023Jul. But Wesley So eventually properly performed by winning the 2022 CGC & 2023 Armageddon Americas and got runner-up in the 2023 American Cup & the 2023 Aimchess Rapid. So inshallah Carissa will properly perform in time for the 2023 women's uscc and maybe even beat Alice Lee this time.

    Carissa was underperforming and even lost to a WGM because Carissa is distracted by a secret relationship with Wesley So that started in the 2022 Olympiad. Look at Carissa's X header.

    Notice both of them are defending champions but then underperform in their 1st tournaments after the Olympiad.

    Carissa Yip

    2021 USCC women's – winner
    2022 USCC girls juniors – didn't play but would've easily won if not for playing in 2022 USCC juniors instead
    2023 USCC girls juniors – 3rd/4th … Oh ok that's not so bad … Technically an underperformance because Carissa should have been minimum top 2.

    Wesley So

    2019 classical WFRCC – winner
    2021 9LX – 2nd place
    2021 USCC – winner
    2022 9LX – only 5th place
    2022 USCC – only 5th place
    2022 rapid WFRCC – only 6th place
