Definately an entertaining cat-and-mouse endgame with the queens and bishops! Not how I thought it would end at all! Great analysis Danny I'm really looking forward to another 2-parter like this I really enjoy the feature-length lectures more!
Danny peeps are messaging you on skype!
good video. Thanks
Great lesson Danny. I learned to sometimes choose to strangle rather than immediately activate my pieces. That way I can strangle first and activate the piece later with a strangle. I feel for black not taking that draw.
I can't see the video. It says "video not found". How do you guys see it?
This was played on the same day as the previous one.
Thanks Dan , the best live session ever!!!
Not sure it was that kind of journey, Frank ...
Anyway, I had lots of fun watching this game unfold, and it was a joy to provide commentary!
i went on a spiritual journey and came back with a hangover, i need 2 c more in order to undersand me.
Personally, I find these games very instructive, and Danny is a great teacher who covers so many points along the way. Talk as fast as you want, Danny. You have a lot of value to say.
great video's Danny. Thanks very much !
Here is the obligatory demand for moar pwn structrez. ;)
Good video. I have to admit I was pullling for white since I play this same move order, the Catalan etc. In fact, I wondered for a while whether I might have been the opponent in this game! It was great to hear your thoughts about playing Rc1 instead of e4, maintaining the space advantage etc. Thanks.
i played musicmademedense the other day! gg guys, thats fighting chess :p love these videos and i will spend some more time studying what we learned here
I found the commentary about "finding the right positional idea over piece play and tactics" very instructive. Thanks KP and Danny for great material!
Quite a game. I wonder how nervous these guys were with all the pressing.

When Kingpatzer makes the questionable decision to sacrifice his h7-pawn, the entire game is flipped upside-down once again! We reach a sharp and complex Opposite Colored Bishop position with both sides struggling to find safety for their king. Who will ultimately come out on top? Watch and see! Let IM Rensch guide you to the climax as this exciting two part Live Session Hybrid reaches its dramatic conclusion...
