  1. Come play in Syracuse! Colleges and coffee houses everywhere.

  2. many talk about her legs, i think you mean thighs.

  3. Yeah right… 1st time I've ever seen a blindfold worn above the nose and covering the forehead… #rort!

  4. Additional comment. To reconfirm what I ssid… Andrea is TOTALLY blocking the yellow – blindfolded dude from the camera angle, while old – mate wears his transperant, chiffon type thing, continually "adjusting" it. This is typical of the pan – handling that people are able to get away with on social media.

  5. Bruh how can han bend his back like that 😭😭😭

  6. NGL. If levy didn't already have a girlfriend, I'd say this was a pretty good double date.

  7. Hank's spine:Did I do anything bad to you?!!!!!

  8. Around 0:59: what makes white so much better after black’s knight move?

  9. 9 minutes n i havent looked at the game even once

  10. Please try and get a better camera angle for the viewers.

  11. Hans got that maxwell-boltsman graph posture 😂

  12. How is that possible wtfff is that photographic memory? Or some next level sht

  13. How can he even breathe with his fucking torso like that, impressive

  14. you're freaking sick guys !! I've never seen something like that before. Big respect!

  15. Andrea has the best legs of all the chess players there. AmIRight?

  16. This video needs to be watched by anyone who thinks Hans needs electronic assistance to compete and win at the highest level. To play blindfold with such speed and accuracy is very impressive. He clearly has the talent and skill to play at the highest level.

  17. Came back to this video after the whole niemann scandal thing. I don't think Niemann could have cheated here

  18. I want to see more of these interactive videos! Keep Killin it!

  19. This video confirms he was cheating. I mean you can't even see him wearing the blindfold because of Andrea's hair

  20. so this is the date promise? A blindfolded date lol

  21. When the chess speaks for itself, it’s not necessary to see the pieces, you only need to listen.

  22. Even levys position is better then Hans back

  23. Here Hans is still getting used to the beads, that's why his back is so clenched

  24. What kinda slick a** blindfold is this? HHaha… he keeps adjusting the little single layered flap at the beginning and you can see his eyes. Also, you can tell by his head movement him directing his vision toward the board….
