Welcome back everyone to another quick-recap of the Simul show called "The BIG Show" starring our co-resident IM, Danny Rensch.
This week's show, Danny took it to another level, playing 8 simul games at a time. Usually, he goes 5, but this week, he started 3 more mid-Simul at different time controls, adding more pressure on himself but pleasing more of his fans as well.
The first 5 games were at 15/10 time controls, while the newer batch were 10/10. Also, in the shorter games, Danny played 2 of his now getting to be regulars in Petrosianic and FM Eilyisum.
Let's get rockin! Here are the games in the order they were completed!
Now this next game, against Petrosianic, Danny had a winning position and after a rough blunder, the advantage shifted to Petro and eventually, the point as well.
And the final duel of the day:
So there you have it everyone! A little bit of a rougher simul this week with 2 losses but an over 5.5/8, giving our IM another respectable result. Congrats go out to all of the players chosen for this week as well as Super-Congrats to the two winners: Petrosianic and FM Eilyisum.
I hope everyone is enjoying their day and also enjoyed the show for those who watched. We should have PoB tomorrow but if not, I'll mention it in the group.
Take care TV-aholics!
As always, this was SUCH a fun show, and I have to say...the chat was a lot of fun, too! No trolls!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!
Eilyisum seems to be making a tool out of Danny everytime they play. Would love to see them play five simul games against each other to see what happens then.
He's an FM, so yeah, you wouldn' normally think a player of that level would want to play a Simul against me, but I guess he loves the attention he gets from beating me.
I guess I just don't have a big enough ego to care about losing in public... Too bad!!!
Great show, even if I wasn't able to watch it! Chess.com has a great thing going here.
You got THAT right, CalbaMan :)
