As Always, great video series by Danny. I like the way you deliver. Fun and learn. Thanks a ton!!
"...and the game is Rover, meaning, the game is over, red Rover, send the white king - right over." CLASSIC!
If you are curious about the Blackburne's Mate then visit my forum, where I posted a game where I checkmated with the Blackburne's mate.
Thanks again for the videos. I'm working my way through them.
Thanks for the lesson
fat lady sings! epic this series has been great so far
Especially found Lolli's mate very practical as you often can find yourself with a pawn on g6!
It is working thanks for a great video!

Many new ideas herein! Thanks Danny.
Great video! you've just added a few more combinations to my repetoire.
that was really helpful to my casual and tournament play i analyzed a few games of mine and saw that these mating nets were like everywhere as in once every 2-3 moves
Danny you're actually hilarious! As always I'm "pumped"
The material in the video was great I've only just fully watched it, lightning quick as always - meaning I'll watch it once more tomorrow to fully absorb all the content. After watching this video, I now know why I never fianchetto a bishop in castled position! Your videos are doing wonders for my repertoire - top respect
by IM Daniel Rensch
International Master Daniel Rensch continues his video series on the critical patterns every chess player must know this weekend! Today your journey takes you into several "well-known" patterns: We start with Greco's Mate; move onto Blackburne's two nets; and eventually transition into Lolli's and other "pawn helper mating nets". Enjoy!
