FIDE master Anna Cramlingis a female Swede. She has a top FIDE rating of 2175 and is the daughter of grandmasters Juan Manuel Bellon Lopez and Pia Cramling. Anna is a well-known chess player as well as a chess pundit and streamer. She became the first chess streamer for Panda Global esports in January 2021.
In 2002, Cramling was born into a chess family. Her father was a five-time Spanish chess champion, and her mother was the fifth female grandmaster in history. Even future world champions don't often start playing chess until they are three years old, but Anna did since she is the daughter of two grandmasters.
Her participation on the Swedish women's team at the 2016 Olympiad, which placed 23rd out of 140 nations, and winning the WFM championship in 2018 after seeing her FIDE rating increase from 2043 to 2175 are two of her greatest achievements in over-the-board chess. Anna placed fifth overall at the European Girls U-18 Championship in 2019 in a tie.
Anna characterizes her gaming approach as aggressive. In this game versus IM Renier Castellanos, who was rated 2498 at the time, we can see how aggressive she can be. After a tight middlegame that included castling from the other side, Castellanos blundered with 30...Rxb2?, and Anna elegantly won the match.
Cramling started streaming in February 2020, and as of April 2021, she has amassed over 219,000 followers on Twitch. In a November 2020 interview with the Swedish evening daily Expressen, Cramling acknowledged "The Queen's Gambit" as helping to expand her audience.
She had 35,000 followers at that time, and since then, her channel has only grown. On her webcast, Anna converses with viewers while playing additional games. Her mother Pia may occasionally stop by to play games with her, such as Chess960, and to offer guidance, opening suggestions, and other information.
Instagram, which has more than 109,000 followers, is Anna Cramling's second-most popular platform. Additionally, she has a YouTube channel where she frequently shares her favorite Twitch stuff, like a match against GM Hikaru Nakamura who was wearing blindfolds (off-screen).
In January 2021, Cramling joined the Panda eSports team as the organization's first chess streamer.
Along with IM Anna Rudolf, WGM Jennifer Shahade, and fellow WFM and streamer Alexandra Botez, Cramling took part in "Femme Batale" in March 2020. The money from the match went to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund of the World Health Organization.
Also, Cramling and GM Robert Hess worked together to give live commentary on the first round of the 2020 Women's Speed Chess Championship.
