Instructive :) Thank you, IM Rensch! :)
Thanks a lot Danny! I really enjoy your videos, both its educational content and your jokes:)A question: in a game which i played Scheveningen as black, it occured to me that I had the opportunity to trade my b5 pawn with the opponent's e4 pawn. I did the trade, but I'm not sure that it was good. Surely, after that black has a firm grasp on the centre, but what about queenside and pawn majaority of white (actually 3 white pawns against just one black pawn). Could you please tell me some words about the pawn structure?
This series was so good that I watched it twice!In the future,I may even watch it for a third time.Thanks
why black couldn't take the free knight because white could could do e5 with a double attack.
More pawn structure please! It's great
Excellent video series!I will have to review some of it.Thanks
@Proveteur ..yea true :)
After someone said moving both e6 and g6 ll not work for black ..this structure comes natural to me XD ..thnks for showing tactics in this lines ..and also i feel confident tht ..its not i am weak in end game ..its lack of options i have ..u gave rook and bishop for rook ...knowing ..king and pawn endings a winning one ...thts nice ...learning would make stronger ..i am going to study with an extra tempo xd hehe
haha love the way he talks about chess.com being one big happy family . Not in that exact words, but still.
Thanks again for your videos, the pawn structure 101 lectures are definitely the most educational videos I've seen so far! Hope you'll do some more in the near future!
I like how he pronounces scheveningen
His videos are the best.
I do a litle dance in my pants (that sounds so dodgy) every time Danny adds a new video to the library! :D
@ baddogno I couldn't agree more. Danny is the man.
Great video! keep up the good work
"No dancing in your pantsing" ?!! I've said it before, and I'll say it again : Your videos alone are worth the price of diamond membership. What a rare and wonderful gift you have to be so educational and entertaining at the same time. Thanks again.
Very instructive and relevant to my own repertoire, something I'll watch twice for sure!
"SCHEVENINGEN PAWN STRUCTURE 101" (!!)
Wow! That was entertaining! :)
by IM Daniel Rensch
IM Daniel Rensch brings the Scheveningen Structure to a close today by reviewing two games from his personal library that highlight the tactical possibilities of the common sacrifice on e6. The second game under review, an encounter with the young IM Steven Zierk, shows the issues with white sacrificing on e6 without a clear plan or idea of execution...
