ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TILL TO THE 8 minute aka free version (just general talking no tactics)
Watched this video about 6 months ago and it has improved my game greatly. So glad that I watched it again. Thanks Danny.
The presentation is thorough, extremely well organized and comprehensive The talk that some people complain about is a result of attempting to squeeze as much information as possible into a half hour video. If you listen carefully and attempt to grasp every concept that is covered you realize that Daniel's mind is moving forward at close to the speed of light.
Kudos for a great lesson. Keep up the excellent work.
I'm not sure what all the complaints are about. The video is structured, coherent and even humorous at times. The problem isn't the content or the composer, it's the unreasonable expectation of the audience. Thank you Daniel Rensch. Keep it coming.
Then bishop would skew move too the top of the board, kradikal
Great video...and i just love the comment "...you're a chess player that only your mother can love"
I remember subscribing to diamond not more than 1month ago
What!!! I can't watch the full video.
Right after the talking I unveil the secrets to eternal life, undying love and becoming world chess champion... man... it's really too bad you don't have a premium membership .
Just kidding. Sorry I talked so much. But seriously, it does get better.
the whole 9mins just to offer another paid video. could have said that in 5seconds and not waste everybody's time
