    I actually saw that Queen-Bishop Ram, get the Knight in there... But thought some strong calculation prevented him from doing that, but indeed, that would have been the killer move.

    Interesting game. Re the sacrifice Nxg2 you discuss from 27:58 (sorry, don't know the move number), Deep Rybka reckons it ends up equal: ...Nxg2 Kxg2 Qxh3+ Kg1 Bg4 Nxd6 Rfd8 (...f5? leads to a big swap-off exf5 gxf5 Bxf5 Bxf5 Nxe5 Bxb1 Qxb1 +- leaving black slightly up on material but losing, presumably due to white's active-looking knights) Nxf7 Kxf7 Re3 =

    It reckons ...Nh5 Bh2 Ba6 = is very marginally better than the sacrifice. It says ...g5 is indeed weaker, leading to Bxf4 gxf4 Nh4 +/=.

    Really the best part about this video for me is it's good to know even someone of your experience and talent can make mistakes. There's been many a game I've been down on myself for a poor performance over the board. It's those kinds of losses that are a catalyst for learning and ever striving to be better. I won't feel so bad the next time I botch a game. Good luck on becoming a GM!!

    Dan, I really think you're too hard on yourself sometimes as you don't ever seem to factor in the much-deserved handicap that you're dividing your time between instructing and narrating while playing and your opponent is not. Whenever you make a mistake in these live sessions I'm always of the opinion you would not have done so if you were playing in peace and quiet with 100% focus as your opponent almost certainly is. Great job. Thanks for sacrificing your Elo points for our benefit. We like it yeah, we like it! :-)

    Thank you Ninja for answering that, and yes, that video does explain fully how white is winning in that position.

    Thanks to all who enjoyed this Live Session... Man, that was a crazy and painful finish Tongue out... Not everday your opponent blunders into a winning position.

    Hey david, it's a theoretical win called the lucena position.

    Actually, Danny already has answered your question : )

    Great game! Thanks for sharing-I guess you are human after all Money mouth

    when you are looking at a sacrifice just ask yourself, what would Tal do :)

    Thanks again, Danny

    And: any chance you could explain why Gelfand resigned in the second blitz game - the R + p v R ending? All the commentators said. well known winning position, but did not explain how White can advance, with the R constantly checking. Be great if you could!

    Thanks

    Nice game papa bear. Yeah, the rybkanator likes nxg2 as well (saying roughly equal, but I think black has the practical edge). Just promise you will take us to sac town on the next vid : )

    Yes, ...a5 and stopping White from playing b2-b4 was a good idea. It could be followed by ...Qe8, ...Bd7, ...Nh7 and ...f5 looks like a nice plan for Black in middlegame.

    I have to agree.  Very good job, not cutting the analysis short because of the loss.  Excellent review.  Also shows you are a fighter who does NOT like to loose.  thx
