Perhaps inspiration DOES come knocking twice, eh?
@ethanguy I thought of that too, but Qa8 fails to black moving HIS queen to the back rank, ...Qf8. Then if QxR, black can recapture. And so white must move his queen away. That's why Danny said it doesn't threaten anything.
Great vid Danny thanks so much..keep them coming
"Inspiration doesn't knock twice."
Another great live sessions. I felt your pain when you took a5 blundering some of your achievments in the position.
I believe another winning continuation at 24:06 (after g6) was Nd7, immediately threatening the deadly fork on f6 and also the rook on b8. The queen must take d7, and then we take on b8 with check and will queen that pawn shortly. Although... I like your way too : )
way to come back and win it and great live session. thanks.
Very instructive live sessions - 1 of my favourite live sessions to date because the post-game analysis breaks it down for people at my level to fully understand everything that was going on - top lecture for sure
Nice Job! Really enjoyed this one a LOT!!
@TillTheEndofTime -- There are "Related Links" on the right side of this page (where the video player is) and one of them is my game: Rensch v Krush!
Great video and very instructive -- thank you!!!
Great combination of tactics, strategy, and entertainment. Keep up the good work!
hi everyone, where can i find the dzindi's review of the game danny mentioned in the beginning?
@nikakiller299 -- When white captures on a6 black can simply recapture with the Knight, guarding c7. Among other things...
@ethanguy -- The combination played is much more effective. Qa8 doesn't really threaten anything...
super mama ready 1234

Sometimes, you need a second chance! After blundering away one of his two powerful passed pawns, IM Rensch must find a way to win the game for a second time. In this highly interesting Panov Structure, Danny talks in the post game review about the importance of keeping your focus on the move order of you opening and not taking anything for granted.
