Genious pathway between ultra opening geeking and intuitive play, not neglecting any :) sweet. Right down my alley! great way to knit my little comfy opening repitoire together. Yummy.
Danny is the man!
Oustanding video, as always Mr. Rensch. I played a couple of 15/0 games on ICC this morning and came on here with the intention of learning something about pawn structures and play and that's exactly what I got. Thanks for the lecture and keep them coming. Your videos are some of the best out there.
LOL, slam slam, bam bam, thank you mam! Classic!
@dtmcm -- No, you can't download our videos -- but you can subscribe forever and consider Chess.com your personal playground
excelent i need to put into practice this one, a very instructive video!
Is there a way to download these fantastic videos?
Great Video, Daniel, well done!
Could you perhaps provide this game in PGN format so we can study and make annotations of the concepts taught?
Thanks for the great lesson!

I enjoy your videos. You're like the Jim Rome of chess. LOL
Looking forward to the next one. Thanks Danny.
Great lesson, great game.
Yes.... I had a wonderful wonderful lesson thanks Daniel, I will be heading for the rest of thos lectures in the near future!!
Rensch is such a great teacher for all ages...He keeps the students engaged and interested with his clear explanations. I also like how he does a quick review at the end of his videos to summarize key points! Simply the best teacher in chess.com!
Went through all 11 vids yesterday. Seeing this the second time, I think I'm starting to remember the basic plans/maneuvers and understand what's going on and what to do. Great series, Im gonna get this stuff down.
