2:56 to 3:00 I laughed for a long time.
everything rhymes but the unbalenced material... i thought you would say unbalenced play..
nice rap.. :)
what a brilliant video! this is easily in my top 5!!
awsome this is sawagewah5etah
Danny Rensch is hilarious.
I just want you to know you rap good for a white guy lol
A very interesting game but your rapping skills are... not bad
@ Gowtham1997 "The move he wanted us to find" is Bxg5, looks like a pawn winning tactic but its actually a blunder... Black should play simple moves to win
hey "play chess like hockey" get a tape recorder narrate as you play your games, and review. you will improve dramatically. this is a revolution in chess study.
Dude you're hilarious. Keep em' coming. Thx!
Stick some fat 808 beats behind that rap and all the thugs will be thizzlin'. Watch your levels though, there was a fair amount of clipping throughout (the video, not the rap). On the subject of chess quality, right on!
You are right einstein -- that was another chance for white to liquidate into a drawn position...
Others who were upset with the beginning of the video... either for not getting the whole picture or for having to endure the rap... time to upgrade !
Maybe this is interesting. :)
can anyone tell me the deadly move in the game i couldnt see it as the video ended early, :'(
by IM Daniel Rensch
Today we learn something incredible: The Knight and Bishop can outplay the Queen! Yes, there were several other critical factors -- namely the isolated pawns, weak white King, and black's initiative -- that lead to IM Daniel Rensch's comeback victory over another local Arizona Master in this game, but the "meat" of the video proves a Knight and Bishop are capable of coordinating and outplaying the "First Lady" of chess... Oh yeah, Danny also free-style chess raps!
