As part of the ChessTV Moderator (CTVM) Special Awards, IM Danny Rensch will host a special edition of the "BIG Show" on ChessTV to thank the ChessTV Moderators who provide ChessTV members help and support with ChessTV problems and questions.

The CTVM group consists of members who volunteer during ChessTV to monitor the group chat. Being a moderator isn't always an easy job and sometimes monitoring the chat makes it difficult to enjoy the broadcast. Many moderators volunteered because they have technical experience with ChessTV or or because they wanted to help keep chats friendly and appropriate for all viewers. In addition to "moderating" topics and discussion, moderators are constantly asked questions, such as

  • "how do I challenge the host,"
  • "are these game in Live Chess,"
  • and the chat's favorite question, "can we view Carlsen's [,Nakamura's,Anand's] game now?"

Danny will play against ten of the most active moderators on this special simul show! He wishes he could play everyone, of course, but the moderators selected are (in alphabetical order):
