  1. Hmm the original thumbnail image was S tier…

  2. Congrats on your win with this game. Very well played & love to see that super excitement spirit. Thanks for sharing this recap and keep on going. Cheers!

  3. Is it only me or did the video lag and became un synced at 12:29 or around there?

  4. Enjoyed these tournament videos lately – no cursing – lol.

  5. She doesnt even know notation good😭Nakamura was right

  6. LOVE the OTB content. The games are so much more intense when you're putting all your energy on the line for hours. Great recap Alex

  7. Well played, Alexandra! When are you coming back to Tromsø?

  8. Watched your boxing chess match against dina 😂😂😂 you got them hands.

  9. It's so great to see this content from this channel. Alexandra is a great communicator and has a good attitude. And lets be real here- she also looks fantastic, great outfit

  10. There is only one God. “Within the one Being that is God, there exists eternally three coequal and coeternal persons, namely, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” God is the creator of everything and is Sovereign over everything. God has appointed his only Son to judge the living and the dead. We have all sinned and broken God’s law, such as lying, stealing, lusting, anger, and pride. God is Holy, and Just. That is why when God judges he cannot let even one sin from anyone go unpunished and that punishment is eternal hell. We can’t work our way into heaven and our good deeds can’t save us from our sin. The bible says all our righteous acts are like filthy rags. We would perish if we died and faced God with our own righteousness.

    The Good news is that God is also Love and Merciful and sent his only Son to save his people from their sin. Jesus who is fully God and fully human, lived a perfect life and never sinned. He willingly went to the cross where the Father took the wrath that his people deserved, and put it on Jesus. Jesus paid the price for their sin and died on the cross. He was buried and on the third day God raised him from the dead. God commands all people everywhere to repent of their sins and to put their trust in Jesus. Biblical repentance is a change of mind about Sin. It’s an attitude of the heart, genuinely turning from sin to God. Everyone who repents and puts their trust in Jesus, will have their sins credited to Jesus, and Jesus’s righteousness will be credited to them. Their sins will be forgiven, and they will be given eternal life. When it’s time to face God, he will welcome them into heaven because of Jesus’s perfect righteousness.

  11. You must have lost a lot of money with poker 😅

  12. Is this tournament being hosted by S.H.I.E.L.D?

  13. You know the emotion is real by how many move names she messes up while talking xD

  14. With Alexandra’s outfit, the windows on that building, and the cosmic purple chess board, I feel like I’m watching a chess recap from like the year 2073 or something.

  15. I was impressed with the Rook A7 move following with Rook A6. I just never could think about how to manage that position while pertaining a winning trade! Good move

  16. nice to see chess explained in a calm, educational, instructive manner. without anyone shouting or jumping….

  17. Dude in the thumbnail getting thirsty over Alex, lol

  18. Oh this young woman knows how the knight moves..😛

  19. 10:32 Could someone explain why he had to trade off his rook there? Surely if Alex had taken b6 he would have had the rook at a7. Also his rook at a8 wasn't threatened because it was protected twice.

  20. The key was K f2 and then N a2. He should have prevented the K f2 move, and then after N a2, the rest of the game was pretty clear.

  21. Take a video about this , The world is now ruled by one community of people, the world Satanic elite, you can also call them the committee to meet the Antichrist and prevent the 2nd coming of Jesus, Trump called them the deep state, at the moment it consists of about 10,000 people, the main ones there are Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Windsors, Baruchs, they, their ancestors, descendants and other people who enter there have the mark of Lucifer, which, if they bring the antichrist and do not allow the 2nd coming, they will receive eternal life after the x hour, and the rest of humanity, for all the time that they have lived, they won't get anything, so all people should know about the existence of a world government (Jesus who was a The Prophet of God, not God.God will send Jesus as a reward to humanity, if humanity deserves it, for this it is necessary to fight Lucifer and his elite)

  22. It's painful to see/hear that Alexandra so often misspeaks the name of fields after so many years of chess. 🙁

  23. Why do you wear onlyfans dress in chess competition

  24. Nice to see you bounce back in the second round! When you mentioned knowing your opponent played a "bad" line (the pawn capture of the bishop in the opening) but that you hadn't studied how to exploit it, it reminded me of playing my son in Go. He remarked that he knew I was playing moves that he knew weren't good BUT not being experienced enough to consistently exploit them…

  25. thanks alexandra i like these sorts of game analysis. road to international master!

  26. Alexa Botez with GRANDMASTER JON LUDVIG HAMMER•••>in REYKJAVIK•••>As it turned to look at handphone…the publication was a world first(TOURNAMENT)!

  27. Others have not done so well(CHESS-PLAYING)!

  28. I really liked ra7 allowing the capture of the b pawn. That was a very cool move because it allowed for the activation of the white bishop and the eventual win of the pawn back. A classy move, in other words.

  29. Turn music off. Start using a, computer (not Wood board)

  30. A very nicely played game, Alex! Let me offer one critique: the number of times you misidentified the SQUARES on the board during your recap is stunning. It's normal to call "b3" the "b6" square and make similar such mistakes once or twice, but you do this so frequently with so many squares, I wonder if it might point to some ways in which you could use such knowledge to your advantage as to WHAT and HOW to study. You need to KNOW each and every square on the board just as easy as you recognize the difference between a King and a Queen! (I think you called a Bishop a Rook once, too.) This should lead to some SIMPLE exercises that might vastly improve your game, because these are easy errors to correct. Nice work! – j q t –
