   Welcome to another quick recap of "The BIG Show" starring IM Danny Rensch, who plays a weekly 10-game LIVE Chess Simul and looks for that elusive perfect show, of which he has only had 3 of.

   This week's show aired at 1 PM Pacific/4 PM Eastern/9 PM London time and was open to ALL Members. The show ran for a little over 90 minutes and 11 games were played this week, counting the early draw of which an instant rematch was requested and played.  Cool  Naturally, I include everything and count everything. It's just the way that I am. Sorry Danny  Tongue Out

   OK here are the games in the order that they finished in:

Game 1: vs. Mainline_Novelty - B97 Sicilian Najdorf Poisoned Pawn


Game 2: vs. Xonius - B30 Sicilian

Game 3: vs. elindauer - B13 Caro Kann Exchange Variation with Panov/Botvinnik Attack

Game 4: vs. Boocho - Sicilian Kan Variation

Game 5: vs. pellik - E04 Open Catalan

Game 6: vs. Mainline_Novelty - C45 Scotch Game

Game 7: vs. OlGravyLegs - A45 Trompowsky Attack

   For the record, Danny and myself love that name  Cool

Game 8: vs. FormulusForqual_441 - B95 Sicilian Najdorf


Game 9: vs. nate23 - B28 Sicilian O'Kelly Variation

Game 10: vs. Sleight - B97 Sicilian Najdorf Poisoned Pawn

   So congrats to pellik and Boocho for the wins and Sleight and OlGravyLegs for the draws.  Cool

   OK here is the puzzle that Magesh put up for the "trivia question" this week:



   I do have the analyzed game from Chessbase and the name of the winner, who was Adranelyn so let me put that up now. If anyone does remember the trivia question, let me know and I will amend it here:
