that was great and messy
----- "But for the record, I am talking to you... on a personal level..." ----- Doesn't get any funnier than that
Not only was that a great finish, the commentary was hysterical. Keep up the good work.
way to think outside the box
Fantastic game and a great lesson Danny. You really outdid yourself on this one. Keep up the good work. We all love it. Thanks again!!
Wow, this really was a wild game in review.
Yeah, taking on d3 was definitely foolish and White should definitely win once I had to sacrifice the Queen, but that's why chess is a game and not a perfect science ...
And yeah, I was right in my post game review that ...Re8 instead of ...Nxd3 would have led to a comfortable edge for Black.
What a great sacrifice! Brilliant coordination between the pieces
Great Recovery! Lucky Guy!
Expose that king for the naked man that he is! Lol.
Awesome game, especially the Queen sac.
like one of the old "my 100 greatest games books" from the old masters. But they never told us they had any doubts! "Winning by refusing to lose". very impressive.
Fun game Danny! Especially the shot at the end - a bolt from the blue.
The best was first April video :)
this was the second best live session ever... I don't remember what the name of the best one was:(. keep it up please ;)
by IM Daniel Rensch
This weekend's Live Session sees IM Rensch face off against a fellow titled player in the Live Chess Arena for a wild battle in the Grand Prix Attack Sicilian. Shortly after over-pressing a small advantage in the middlegame, by playing the unnecessarily risky 20...Nxd3, Danny is forced to "roll the dice" with a Queen Sacrifice in the hopes of taking advantage of his opponent's weak king under time pressure...
