ANDREA BOTEZ GIVES CHESS GRANDMASTER HER NUMBER AFTER LOSING BET ON TWITCH
Andrea Botez has breathed new life into chess travelling the world to take on some of the most established players.
Alongside her sister, the pair have popularized the iconic board game, joining TSM FTX’s Hikaru at the pinnacle of chess play.
Andrea bit off more than she can chew going up against a Grandmaster in the middle of a bustling Times Square. His prize? Her phone number.
After scrambling to force the clock in her favor, she knocks over one of her pieces and ultimately loses the game when the time runs out.
After a “good game,” he asks Andrea to “live up to her promise,” passing her his phone, after she chooses to “put her number in.”
He then reveals that he’s a Grandmaster player with a rating above 2,000, despite fumbling slightly during one of his earlier games.
