    At around 24:57 is Kc3 before b5 more accurate? It seems to defend against that pesky bishop and if black plays b5 himself both of those pawns are easy targets.

    Second time watching through and just continue to have a blast. Love your videos Danny :)

    At 7:24 instead of playing a3, why not Qb5?

    I love your videos. your line of thoughts melts into my lines of thought. Its going well at the chess club even after 2 months of your videomaterial. :)

    That said here after your Kf1 I was like noo Danny why! The combinachio f6 kicking your knightback or else you have put yourself on targer for Qa6+ winning your knight and all you have is a draw from Qe8-Qe6 till kingdom come.


    I was a spectator at a big tournament with GMs a week ago and I was walking around thinking WWDD (what would Danny do) and one point I saw a win for a GM with activating his ponies creating two weaknesses, he didn't see it and settled on winning a pawn and a drawn endgame. When I came home I was right.. Non of them were in timepressure.

    Wonderful video and game.  It shows the importance of understanding the endgame in making the decisions in the middle game.  Thanks.

    I'm wondering about a position near the end. Is there something wrong with after ... Kf6 instead of Kb4, white plays f3, followed by the idea of g3, in order to control all of the squares that the king could advance to? After that, white can play Kb4 and promote the b pawn. Please let me know. Thanks!

    No, that wouldn't work at all. That sacrifice is usually only effective when white has established a pawn on e5. Why?

    Because afer Bxh7+ Kxh7 Ng5+, the black King can easily go to g8. Qh5 is met by the Knight on d5 retreating to f6, guarding everything.

    Can't get too over excited about that sac Wink whenever there is a Knight that can come right back to f6.

    Thanks to everyone for enjoying the video!!!

    @1:45, white to move, I am proposing Bxh7+ instead of castling kingside.

    What position are you talking about on the timeline, cabrego?

  • 4 years ago


    Hey Danny,

    What is the deal with white casteling instead of offering a sacrifice of your bishop on H7, I will go through my own analysis to see if it is worthy but I figured you would at least mention it.  This is the SECOND video where I have commented on this sacrifice idea not being mentioned. I think you hate the bishop sacrifice. Is it a complete blunder?  Help a brotha out man! Go to crash town with that bishop!?

    1. BxH7 KxH7 2.Ng5+ Kg3 3.Qg4 f5 4.Qg3  ... etc.  This looks like it could get bad for white.

    Nice video Danny. The king and pawn ending was also won for White if you had played f2-f3 and g2-g3 after the last minor pieces came off. Then Black's king doesn't get to your d4-pawn in time while you still win the Black pawn on a4.
