Yelizaveta OrlovaVancouver, Canada
Hey guys! I am a full-time chess instructor and a full-time graphic student living in Vancouver, Canada. I used to play chess competitively years ago (from 2008-2013) but now do it for fun I love to stream on my free-time. I have a chess dog. Check me out on twitch to watch & see my schedule: www.twitch.tv/orlovachess
PS. I suck at speed chess and always flag. I never practiced speed chess as a child, it was forbidden by my father unless I was practicing openings My father also claimed speed chess would hurt my classical play.
