Welp, it's been quite the adventure I must say. In the end I won the contest that Chess.com held to become one of the new faces of the Chess.com YouTube channel. It was a dog fight, believe me. We all tried our hardest to win.
Here are my first two videos for Chess.com. The first one is a lecture type lesson and the second one is a blitz game.
The comments for the second video are pretty funny. Here's a direct link to the video in case you want to scroll down and check them out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmDJ0k4revk
Some of them are really nice!

Well, it turns out I take my own pieces. Now I know what's been plaguing me these past few years! :) Well, I hope you enjoy them. The new ones I've made I feel are better so I hope you can subscribe to the Chess.com YouTube Channel to keep up-to-date with all of the videos from different authors that Chess.com uploads.
You are awesome. Educational and entertaining. Keep up el bien trabajo
what is a byzamsky? ha ha squarology you are great at making videos!
I'm an instant fan you just played 1.b3! my favourite opening ever and your commentary is hilarious dude you rock I wanna see more of your videos!
lololololl, oh you guys.
Are you kidding? All you'd get is Squarology saying, "BAZAMSKY" and "Look, a dream come true... she hung her queen! She didn't listen to her pieces because she's too freaking noisy!" and me saying, "You pest!! ***expletive**** knights!!! Aggghhhh!!!!!" and the like.
@Dr, if you and Squareology ever did a game and _both_ of you were saying what was in your head, I think I'd truely be on the floor laughing :-)
Harvey, you know how I am.... And these held my attention. Not easy to do! They're very well done and I do often laugh out loud. I especially get a kick out of the personification -- dreams of attacking on the kingside. Listen to your pieces, etc. of course, I've mentioned that If I listen to my pieces, I'm likely to hear some offensive language and we all know by now that I'm too dang noisy!! ;). Heh, heh.
And I totally agree with 1&2!!
I think I figured out two things:
1. You are a storyteller who plays chess. Nice combination! (pardon the pun) You bring the pieces to life :-)
2. The guy who said you capture your own pieces has never seen a "pre-move", lol.
I just watched the first vid... You are funny! So funny in fact, that what you said I could understand... How did you do that?
hey, K0spe, it's true. I mention as much in my latest article (among other things), which can be found here: http://www.chess.com/article/view/mistakes-and-errors-1
At about 7:05 after your oppoment played Qd8, couldn't you have played Bxd7 Qxd7 Nf6+ Rxf6 Qxf6 winning the exchange?
Hey, thanks a lot, guys! :)
@jcm sure, man, here it is http://www.chess.com/livechess/game?id=588515158 I'm going to put up an article about it because there were more than a few mistakes and errors.
LOL. You take your own pieces! That must have been a miracle!
Nice videos, can you post a link to the game in the second one?
Awesome job Daniel!Very entertaining to listen to you have fun because that is what chess is about! : D
very nice videos
Warmest congratulations!!! I know that I just kind of stumbled upon your videos one day when browsing around and was immediately impressed with the style. I enjoyed them very much and I shall, of course look forward to whatever you produce. Please allow me to thank you for the work that you put into them and for sharing them with us!
