Welcome to another quick recap of "The BIG Show" starring IM Danny Rensch, who plays a weekly 10-game LIVE Chess Simul and looks for that elusive perfect show, of which he has only had 3 of.
This week's show aired at 1 PM Pacific/4 PM Eastern/9 PM London time and was open to ALL Members. The show ran for a little over 90 minutes and 11 games were played this week, counting the early draw of which an instant rematch was requested and played. Naturally, I include everything and count everything. It's just the way that I am. Sorry Danny
OK here are the games in the order that they finished in:
Game 1: vs. Mainline_Novelty - B97 Sicilian Najdorf Poisoned Pawn
Game 2: vs. Xonius - B30 Sicilian
Game 3: vs. elindauer - B13 Caro Kann Exchange Variation with Panov/Botvinnik Attack
Game 4: vs. Boocho - Sicilian Kan Variation
Game 5: vs. pellik - E04 Open Catalan
Game 6: vs. Mainline_Novelty - C45 Scotch Game
Game 7: vs. OlGravyLegs - A45 Trompowsky Attack
For the record, Danny and myself love that name
Game 8: vs. FormulusForqual_441 - B95 Sicilian Najdorf
Game 9: vs. nate23 - B28 Sicilian O'Kelly Variation
Game 10: vs. Sleight - B97 Sicilian Najdorf Poisoned Pawn
Game 11: vs. Arpie - C18 French
So congrats to pellik and Boocho for the wins and Sleight and OlGravyLegs for the draws.
Your Games Analyzed for 5/29!
OK guys sorry for the delay but I guess there was a glitch in the Yahoo e-mail system. I just got the game from GM Magesh Panchanathan from Tuesday's Your Games Analyzed, which aired at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern/6 PM London time and was open to Platinum/Diamond members.
OK here is the puzzle that Magesh put up for the "trivia question" this week:
I do have the analyzed game from Chessbase and the name of the winner, who was Adranelyn so let me put that up now. If anyone does remember the trivia question, let me know and I will amend it here:
