why didn't black take the pawn before white played Nf3?
Great format. Honestly, I don't how you are able to play at such a high level while giving a lecture. You are insanely knowledgable. Do you have Johnny Mnemonic download capability?
keep the format
The new format is great Danny! Seeing your opponent's name and rating, plus the time on your clock is good as you don't need to relay to us how much time you have left anymore and in theory that should free up some head space for some extra deep calculations!
Shame about the result of the game but it happens to the best of us - maybe you underestimated him?!... he was obviously a well-prepared opponent and knew his lines well.
lol wut @theprodigy01
I <3 the new format
Denny loves Danny
Very nice format! I like it! Good job as always, Danny!
@ DannyThe new format looks totally fine; I vote to keep it.Also, good chance you lost this game because you wasted (from what I recall) at least four minutes in the beginning explaining various things to your audience...a pretty big disadvantage when you're playing against an NM in a 10 minute game, I reckon.Is there some way you could manage to do your introductory explaining without losing so much time on your clock in future Live Session games? Because I hate it when Danny loses! : (
New format is much better
Excellent video, love the new format and also your commentary - thank you very much for sharing IM Rensch.
This is the first time I see you loosing a Live session :(
Still, the new format is great and the video was very interesting. Thanks ;)

very happy with the new format, even if the resolutions off
This game was awesome. Next time could you make a video about the steinitz schotch. I played a game for fun with you at supernationals and I played it and completely lost. Try to make a video so I can see what to do next time. thx. p.s the new format is awesome

Today IM Rensch faces off against National Master Evan Rosenberg in an exciting game that goes down to the wire! The new "video format" features the time of both players to add to the excitement, and we look forward to your feedback! After Danny misplays the opening he finds himself fighting on the worse side of an IQP position. Does he have enough in the tank to stage a comeback, or does he fall just short? Watch and find out!
