more videos i love them
EDIT by Staff (jon). Sorry.. !
I learnt more from this easy to watch video than hours of staring at endgame puzzles. I was proud to come up with the initial moves for each position but humbled by the lack of depth/breadth of my calculation, and left with the desire to try harder next time. More endgame positions like this please. Chess doesn't get any better than this. Previously OTB I wouldn't have had the confidence to play the winning moves in this video, but now...
i like your humor, it would be funny if u said things like funky town again or chunky funky monkey
i just played a played a game online here, and was completely winning near the end of the middlegame, then all of a sudden a few blunders and bad endgame play and i was almost equal, so im watching this whole series. Hopefully it helps!
lol u said anyhooters
I loved this video!!! thank you!!!
Danny we need more Checkalinalashlamba ;) Love that word, needs to be in the dictionary ;)
Thats what the rewind option is for. Danny is just trying to fit SO many knowledge nuggets in one video that he has to speak quickly. I think your doing a great job Danny, keep your awesome videos coming!!! And maybe you could give a system for breaking down the position into steps that help the claculation process be more efficient. Because there is so much going on in an endgame position i find my calculations to be a little scattered.
great video daniel. its not that you speak too much but that you speak so fast that its hard to absorb it all quickly. keep up the good work just slow down a bit and youll be fine
Need lots of focus on the endgame
Very good video! I will watch all of your videos, I need the endgame focus.
It's true, the video gets off to a very slow beginning with nearly ten minutes of staring at one position before you even mentioned that it is black to play? Good verbal advice along the way, yes, but the board was just frozen. Of course, once the moves started coming the instruction was excellent with good examples. Thanks.
Thanks for the new upload, we appreciate the time it takes.
The Rensch videos are the best ones on the site. They are clear and provide useful information.
If you don't like the video or have anything constructive to say, leave. You don't get points for critiques. We're just trying to learn here.
@giakoum & Blaken1674 -- White's king enters d5 and c6 still way ahead of black's King on the Kingside... white is still winning...
Thank for watching and leaving your comments everyone...
Again, I agree with VanillaBean. I read through the comments here and, even without having put the time into making the video, I became pretty frustrated and discouraged. I imagined I made this video and that part of me might stop doing it all together. Truth be told, I have learned a great deal from all of your vidoes, Danny. So, just remember that while there may be some who do not like your videos, there are also many others who appreciate them a great deal.
These videos are not a waste of time, please keep them up! I appreciate videos because I tend to be and audio learner and appreciate seeing positions played out in front of me. I also enjoy the relaxed tone you use. It's genuine and approachable. Anything else from you would be stilted.
I also like that you frequently discuss chess wholisitically, instead of zeroing in on just one thing. Too often chess is aproached in "silos" where one aspect of the game is discussed without tying it into other principles. I need to see the various parts and the big picture. You do a great job of doing both. Since I started watching your videos in earnest (Pawn Structures and Live Sessions especially) I've enjoyed the game even more because I understand it on a whole new level.
For people who dislike the "fluff," they probably learn better from boring stuffy books anyway. There's enough of those for them. Your videos might not be everyone's cup of tea, but enough of us have found them useful that they have proven valuable. Keep them coming.

Enjoy!
