someone can explain why "101" ? for PAWN STRUCTURE 101"
Great to learn that the f3 structure when castled short is a waist of time for white.Thanks
Ouchtown Population: White King.
I cracked up when I heard that, haha. These videos are amazing and are helping me learn both the black and white sides of the Sicilian.
Magic carpet experience
Thanks for the video
TQ SIR...hope u can become GM soon...
Great video! thanks.
Magic carpet ride indeed! You're extremely humorous, Danny! I loike it! :)
And I now know how to pronounce "Najdorf" and "Fianchetto".
These are awesome! I want to take the white king to Ouch town!! Can't wait to hear how to stop getting buried in the Yugaslov graveyard. Rock on Danny!
Haha, that part of the commentary at the end... I was mesmerized by the video, and did in fact forget to grab a drink that I just realized I want badly... good stuff, and thanks for keeping the instruction simple enough for someone as new to chess theory as I am.
i know a very good trick
Thank you, nicely done.
Hope you guys had fun with this one... I actually feel it was one of the more important ones in the series to see how black plays (or should play) against a slower, but "castled short" approach...
Another great video. Funny and instructive, as always.
Brilliant com as usual from daniel combined with a razer sharp wit ,making studying the opening more fun and instructive ,keep them coming danny look forward to your next
LOL, I already grabbed my snack before pressing play!
Great lesson Danny and definately relevant for my own repertoire against 1.e4 as I will play a Sicilian in 99% of my games. Just 1 question - I saw that the "golden rule" in Sicilians was broken - pawns on both e6 and g6... is it ok to eventually try and fianchetto the DSB in the middlegame if you already have complete dominance on the light squares?...
Dragon addict!? Did you successfully complete your 12-step program into being "cured" into a Scheveningen addict instead!? Definately a healthier choice...
hahah 11minutes in... "okay big kitty, that could be ouch town, population white king." hahaha - great video
Sicilian Najdorf is my weapon of choice. I love that tempo and aggression dictate those postions. a race to checkmate lol. Funny stuff Danny with the DA (Dragons Anonymous). Very instructive, and magical carpet ride!
by IM Daniel Rensch
In today's video white experiences the terrible consequences of playing too slowly on the kingside, neglecting to play for a normal (aggressive) plan of driving the f-pawn against the Scheveningen structure. IM Rensch clarifies when the g2-f3-e4 pawn chain can lead to an effective pawn storm on the kingside, and foreshadows the coming videos on the English Attack pawn structure. Kasparov display more brilliance in the Najdorf and wins with ease...
