33:22 actually wins in two steps. After black pushes the e-pawn and then d pawn forcing white king to the 1 rank, walking the black king up leads to mate. doesn't matter if white spends 3 moves to queening. White isn't queening with check which gives us 3 moves to picture the goal position for black.
Danny has tought me to look at forcing lines first.
Single string calculations as I call them to my students.
So there it is Danny. A fair and square win for you =)
Danny - This video is one of MANY that proves he has to be one of the, if not THE most entertaining chess professional there is. Just an awesome video, with all of this game's flaws to boot. Just awesome. Cheers
Wow. Four years later and this still makes my day. :)
at 13:25 wen the opponent palyed qe2 u calculated at 14:12Qh4+ Bf2,Nxf2 Qxf2 Re3+ Kf1 Qxf2 Kxf2 right? u missed out Qh4+ Bf2,Nxf2 Qxf2 Re3+ Qd4!!
Why not Nxb7 at 5:58? Qxc8+ and then Nd8 and you're only down the exchange right?
Great fighting spirit danny gg
my favorite live session yet. "wait, did anybody just see that?" Nice rasheed reference. "learn to play like a man" Classic Danny.
danny I have to say your jokes are a bit suspect sometimes lol. But you were absolutely hilarious in this video. You literally had me laughing out loud. Not only that I will never resign again being down material. Its sort of relieving to know even the masters make terrible blunders.
WAIT WHAT????????? THE LAST MOVE IS MATE???????? WHAT???? oh did he get flagged??? this is confusing. you know he can take your queen...
WOWOWOWOOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWW YOU KNOW YOUR BLUNDER I SAW IT RIGHT WHEN YOU MOVED THERE
what a win?!
This is one of if not the funniest video on chess.com. Priceless and classic! Increadible determination! Absolutely astounding!

This weekend we are back with another Live Sessions! By popular demand, IM Daniel Rensch takes a break from teaching Endgames and Pawn Structures to provide some good old fashion family fun. After blundering and finding himself completely frustrated, it was time to resign. So naturally, Danny guaranteed victory instead! Did he pull a "Rasheed Wallace" and get blown out, or do you believe in miracles?
