ANDREA BOTEZ STUNNED AFTER 9-YEAR-OLD KID CHECKMATES HER ON TWITCH CHESS TOUR

WHAT HAPPENED?

Andrea Botez found herself in the awkward, embarrassing position of being checkmated by a nine-year-old boy during a chess tour in London, England.

According to the boy, he was 1,200 on Chess.com and 2,300 on Lichess, which is quite the discrepancy.

In chess, there is a meme associated with the Botez sisters where someone’s blunder ends up costing them their queen.

That’s exactly what happened with Andrea as by moving her pawn, she left her queen exposed.

The kid stood up to play the rest of the game, overseeing the board and pushed closer towards capturing Andrea’s king to end the match.

After one final move by her, the boy was able to position his queen on the board’s back rank to put Andrea’s king in checkmate to secure the victory.

While Andrea may have lost the battle, the clip spread on Reddit, bringing even more attention to her stream in the process. Outstanding move!
