Jul 25, 2023

This week features South Africa’s most charismatic chess streamer and commentator: WIM Jesse February. 

Jesse has had an impressive tournament career that’s still going strong as she works toward the Woman Grandmaster title.

Some of her accomplishments include representing the South African Women’s Team in three Chess Olympiads. Plus, she's a two-time winner of the South African Women’s chess championship.

We chat about Jesse’s incredible and recent experience doing commentary for the inaugural Global Chess League tournament - a unique mixed-team event that featured some of the world’s best men and women players.

And we talk about what Jesse feels she needs to work on to get the WGM title, her best advice from years of coaching, and whether she can give up bullet at 3am.
