    Ah, sorry, I was thinking of a different position that happened during the game, you're referring to the post-game analysis by him. I've not actually watched that part. Looking at it briefly, 1...Rd7 2.fxe5 Re8 3.Rde2 Rde7 (all as you suggest) probably he can just play 4.e6. White's king will come to d3, the e6 pawn is hard to round up (at least not quickly), the d4 pawn needs protection etc. It's probably still drawn, but if anyone's better there, it's White.

    @JamesColman Not sure I follow. I believe I was referring to the position shown at 19:28 among many other times.

    Which position? Surely he'd be playing exf6 with check in such scenarios

    Does your surprising f4 tactic to win back the pawn fail to simply guarding the d4 pawn, allowing fxe5 and then black pinning your own pawn to the rook with re8? doubling up on the e-file for white allows black to do the same and it seems like black is winning the pawn back. Although potentially there might be a repetition opportunity if white moves his rook from d2 to e2 and back.

    Anyone feel free to reply if I'm missing anything. And as always, have a nice day :)

     

    Edit: For example, 19:28

    About the moment you think you "messed up": the necessary move is 6.dxc5, before a3

    @Eugene the Knight is "pinned" by whites bishop. Meaning if the knight moves his king get taken by whites bishop.

    @ Danny

    Personally, I prefer the longer time controlled Live Session games.

    As far as your sense of humor: I support what most of the other commenters on the board seem to be saying, which is don't change your humor or the way you author your videos. "You can't please all the people all the time," as the saying goes...doesn't mean you should let the prudes in your audience have enough influence to change how you skin the proverbial cat.

    Two videos in a row Danny had to centralize his king.

    Daniel Rensch is the only person I've seen who can play strong chess and do great comedy at the same time. He really amazes me, those are serious multitasking skills, because most people need their whole attention  just to  be creative and funny or to play chess. And Danny is quite above average in both cases, even when combined. Lucky 52, if you can show us a video where you play chess half as good as Danny and make jokes half as funny, we will give you a cookie.

    It's interesting that the same day this session was posted, an article on opening traps featured this mistake: http://www.chess.com/blog/GrafDeMonteKritz/avoid-the-trap---save-your-points
