very funny,Daniel Rensch!
Thanks Danny for a fun and interesting game.
Danny, i really wanna see u lose a live sessions
after Bh5 g4 Bg6 c4 Ne7 or Nf6 then c5 and I do not see where the B on b6 is going...
nothing like some great family fun for all.....great stuff
Wish I could keep up!
Nf5 looked crushing to me when you instead played the long exchange variation starting with Rxd4. If d5 in that position, Nxg3 looks real good.
Great video and I love how he keeps you laughing at times.
The pace is frantic and I had to pause and back up twice to keep up with the calculations especially going into the endgame where the f7 pawn was under fire. But I LIKE having to do this because it means I am learning something.
Every time I watch one of Danny's videos I feel as though I am being hauled along by my bootlaces! It's definitely helping me to see deeper into positions and I can't wait to get into my next match now!
What looked like a drawn opposite coloured bishop ending was nothing of the sort - so this was another demonstration of excellent technique (apart from the dodgy King move towards the end! :p).
ah. yeah great video. I'd definitely remove the "beginner" word from the Level though..UNLess Mr. Danny would like to slow down the move notations towards the hm...somewhere in that video *yawn yawn .. i dunno,maybe it was him puttin me to sleep with the yawning. Great video.
Thanks for the quick opening lesson on the English. I wasn't aware of that tactic, I'll clean up my move order as white!
Great video, awsome skills, very entertaining presentation
please keep 'em coming
Great Video, u seem a little different than last time

NEP or NYG

by IM Daniel Rensch
After equalizing quickly against the English opening, IM Danny Rensch finds himself playing an "unstable" middlegame with neither side possessing a clear plan. When his opponent allows for an opposite colored bishop ending, Danny seizes the opportunity to grab a small advantage. Is it enough to convert? Watch and find out...
