Alexandra Botez's match series in partnership with US Chess Women continues on March 7th at 1 PM at her new channel twitch.tv/botezlive. Alexandra expanded her channel a few weeks ago in partnership with her sister Andrea Botez. She also has a regular Friday night guest host, WGM Qiyu Zhou. Saturday's match will feature Andrea Botez against WIM Jesse February of South Africa. Jesse is a new streamer and has done Cairns Cup commentary for chess.com. Her channel is twitch.tv/hashtagchess. You can also find Jesse on twitter. Alexandra, who will be doing commentary, thinks it should be a close match, as both players have similar ratings.
