  1. Great content and interesting game ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Watching Pia play white is like watching a kraken devour a ship. She just squeezes you until you have nowhere to go and then crushes your ship. And all with a smile.

  3. He was happy that he finally found a challenge โค

  4. I don't see how the first one is game over, I'm not great at chess so maybe I missed something

  5. "Yeah, don't mind the camera and the people behind it. Pretend we didn't talk before."

  6. Your mom is the hustler by not revealing her skill prior to the match

  7. I am not that great at Chess, but can someone please tell me why he went ahead and basically gave his Queen away for her bishop when he didn't need to? He could have just moved out of the way? at 3:30

  8. Canโ€™t even play chess and this was fun to watch. Makes me want to learn โค

  9. Is every chess hustler an older black guy with a beanie? Lol or the same guy popping up?

  10. He was swept off the board completely by mom..๐Ÿ˜‚

  11. The irony of course is Anna is the hustler, going into chess pubs and playing amateurs, making videos about how she, a full time pro, beat some guy who plays twice a month and read one book on it.

    It's like the Geico commercial where Charles Barkley is so pleased when he's picked first in a pickup game against 10 year-olds…except that Barkley is in on the joke.

  12. Bait title. Great vid between two amazing players. The kid was superfluous, leave her out next time.

  13. Very cool on both sides. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž

  14. Why Hustlersโ€ฆ. am I missing something?

  15. He's a nice, humble player. Come to Miami!

  16. "I used to wear glasses. I still do, but I used to too"

  17. Awesome ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚โค

  18. I'm not really into chess, I play sometimes for fun and I suck at it. But this video has the best vibes and I'm loving everyone in it (including the dude smoking a tree behind Big John)

  19. 04:42
    I'm not really good at guessing things like this, but I was going to guess she was in her late 70's. Being a grandmother (G.M.) makes sense.

  20. Calling the guy a hustler when your the one sneaking in a gm hustling him

  21. Hustler? Say what you want, that dude was a respectful, fun and just good guy playing some chess.

  22. Daaam she kicked his noisy ass๐Ÿ˜‚twice๐Ÿ˜Š

  23. Im sorry but all i see here is a mother and daughter desperate for attention. Yawn

  24. I thought it was very sweet how proud you sounded of your mother when you commentated.

  25. Hustlers? But how dare you? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

  26. This is amazing content. Thank you.

    Also, at 3:00, I was really hoping the hustler saw knight f6 check. Force white queen takes black knight on F6. White pawn takes Black queen F6. Black bishop F3 takes White queen on D1. Then white rook on f1 captures blacks bishop on d1.

    It wouldn't win him the game but it woulda changed the momentum.

    I think I smoked too much weed ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  27. The second game, she missed the clock multiple times lol

  28. Half the game is over in under a minute. Pretty impressive.

  29. Your mom is so sweet and modest around people. But she's a beast on the board ๐Ÿ™‚. I had to do a double take and watch at 7:13 again. As looks like your mom sacrificed her queen as she already saw the end of game at that time. He did a good job of trying his best to hold on.

  30. I don't know him but most though park hustlers prob master FM ?

  31. he is rock solid and seemed like a lovely dude. she seems awesome as well, just a lovely time.

  32. He is so not a hustler. He is a passionate human being who is very smart and loves the game. Wish I had the ability to play like this.

  33. Do you have any titles that arenโ€™t click bait??

  34. Why do you describe him as a hustler? Thatโ€™s a racial slur. He did nothing but treat her with respect and has great personality as well. Would love to play with him!
