Playing Mind Games! — Part 1 Danny tackles an intermediate opponent in round one. Despite a comfortable victory, Danny offers some criticism of his own inaccurate play in his opponent's time trouble. (Intermediate and Advanced)

Playing Mind Games! — Part 2 Against another intermediate opponent, Danny shows you the dangers of over-eager exchanges as he punishes a trade-happy Black in an opposite sides castling position. (Intermediate and Advanced)

Playing Mind Games! — Part 3 Saved by the bell! Danny's opponent puts the pressure on in an English Opening before forfeiting in a favorable position. (Intermediate and Advanced)

Playing Mind Games! — Part 4 Danny gets paired up for the first time as he tackles a former student, NM Craig Hilby. The game looks pretty scary for Danny, but he doesn't back down and answers Black blow for blow in an opposite-sides castling position. (Intermediate and Advanced)

Playing Mind Games! — Part 5 Danny is seeking a perfect score with hyper-aggressive play in the Yugoslav Attack against the Dragon Sicilian. Danny's opponent makes it to the endgame, but will it save Black? (Intermediate and Advanced)
