Pawn-structure brilliance! I really enjoy these videos I hope you'll keep making them
@ Danny, at 24:41 Rf6+ Kg5 Qf4 is not checkmate because the Blacks queen om c7 can take.
Love this game. It reminds me of my games; not! Thanks for the lesson. Well done. Be well, play well!

At the end after gxf5 Qf6+ Kg5 Qf4 is not Mate!!!!!!!!
17:42, when kamsky offers the Bd2 sac, I was looking at ...Qxe5, which seemd like a line worth exploring.... can anyone please explain why is Qxe5 not a refutation?
Your excitement for the game really shines through here. More great work, which we have come to expect from you! :)
Bhoetrus go to bed and get a good night's rest. You'll be better in the morning.
great commentary and a very entertaining game
A game of the 21st century.
sorry I realized it was double check =)
Which, for the record, is just to capture the Bishop on d5 with check after Kxh5. That's the easiest way for white to win instead of the Qg7 idea I suggested...
@jgregor -- Yes, I did make fun of his hat at the World Open... it, um, really went over well
@others -- Yeah, I made a mistake mentioning Qf4. Sorry. If you watch the "YouTube" version of today's video (live today as well) I actually gave the correct way for Kamsky to finish the job there!

Captain obvious here with some questions: Do you like crazy sacrifices that lead to mate? Do you like the excitement of the knockout matches in the World Cup? Do you like to learn chess while trying to guess IM Danny Rensch's accent-du-jour? Of course you do! Today's video has everything - Kamsky smashing a 2700 by sacrificing three pieces in a row, the drama of the action in Norway, and Rensch going in-depth on every pawn advance ever imagined in the Scheveningan. Best half hour of your day!
