    Hey Danny, I've watched all your live sessions, and i think these are just as good, very entertaining and instructive. Don't listen to the haters.

    @iamdeafzed and akujiki13 -- Sorry you guys feel that way. You might be right in the end that these videos (and this series in general) will not prove to be quite as isntructive as the regular Live Sessions or the Member Analysis videos (as this is trying to be a combination of both) -- BUT I think if the quality of the game was better (and several of the next games Kingpatzer played in this series were better games overall) then you might feel like it was more instructive??? 

    Advanced players will really like the 3rd game (3rd and 4th videos actually, because it had to be broken into two parts) -- but that won't be out for a couple weeks.

    Thanks to all who enjoyed the video...

    I prefer watching Danny's own live games because he explains his thought process in first person.  If he is going to analyze a member game I would rather it be a higher rated one than this.  Would like more opening theory videos also.

    This really wasn't THAT interesting of a video...certainly could have been much worse, but it falls into the 'not instructional enough to merit uploading in the first place' category.

    at minute 4:45, instead of b-c4 wouldn't n-b5 theatening mate and then n-d6+ totally strangle black position?

    You have to assume that he had a pre move selection going for the opening after he followed the "Oh Sh*t" moment with e5.

    Oops! ;)

    Entertainment and instruction in one package! "I loike it, yeah? I loike it!"

    By the way, at 22:26, Rd6+!! Kxd6 Rd1++ is a picturesque finish in which every white piece is playing a major role.

    This is brilliant! Love the colourful commentary and analysis, and yeah sometimes some peoples chess.com names are more catchy than their real names - Danny, never call me Sam! Laughing

    One thing I really like about the "evolution" of the live sessions/hybrids in general is the post-mortem analysis... this really helps me understand the fast-pased calculations a lot more clearly. ACE! Wink

    A second look at the video reveals that 40 seconds passed between 2. Nf3 and 2. ... e5 which leads to the safe conclusion that black was hyped by a large cup of hot chocolate with extra sugar creating a temporary feeling of having superpowers if not total immortality in the center of the board. Needless to say, the superpowers quickly faded away as insulin took care of blook sugar business and had totally vaporized after Kingpatzers principled response 3. dxe5.

    I think black was either pre-moving 2. ... e5 in anticipation of white playing d5 or on a weired coctail of (legal & family server aproved) drugs. In any case it turned out to be an entertaining video.
