What a great game.Almost unbelievable!Thanks
Presented nicely Coach D.
its Super awesome and unbeleivable to see when 3 of your pieces are hanging and the opponent cant take none!! Its real Courage to play such brilliantly against a very good Player of Lev Aronians caliber... Thanks for this awesome video Danny!! You are too good commentator....Get yourself a drink for this one!
The Da Vishy Code..
i WOULD TRY AGAINST aRONIAN IF GIVEN THE CHANCE.tHEN ,HE WOULD MAKE DIFFERENT MOVE IN FEAR NOT OF MY RATING BUT HINDSIGHT
The other interpretation of "Exclamaviatch" is still not that bad...
Some people need to relax and stop being offended by their shadows.
Danny is completely entertaining and non offensive. Great Video!
In case Chess .com has not told you lately.
Your doing a great job on these vidios. keep up the good work!!
Thanks for the explanation about Exclamaviatch, but I know of some people who did not hear the explanation and quit Chess.com because they were offended. The people I refer to were from Argentina. It might be wise not to use words that MIGHT be mis-interpreted. It is more clear what you're saying to the English speaking audience, but you have to think globally here.
Congrats to Anand's computer!
Deserving to be called WORLD CHAMP... WHAT A GAME!
You know just because Anand might go down to 2750 or something in a few years, thats still ridiculously high and easily top 50 level in the world. No need to retire ;). Once he drops below 2700-2600 then maybe its time
Wow! This has to be the best game i've ever seen
WOW! WHAT AN EYE OPENER!!
Brilliant game, awesome commentary!
Boss- you are hilarious.
Danny you are a diamond!! ...no actually I'm the diamond - diamond member lol
But you are a LEGEND for this analysis! What a game! I'd already seen the game a couple of days ago but had to watch your video for the rants and antics... as usual... obviously! It's a shame that you couldn't do 1 video lecture a day whilst the tournament is on... although there would be a "lag" (because of live coverage) but that wouldn't matter one bit, because who goes over great games JUST once!?

World Champion Viswanathan Anand provided the world with a special treat in Round 4 of Tata Steel's Super Chess Tournament, being held in Wijk aan Zee, when he smashed the world #3 Levon Aronian with the black pieces! The game itself was beautiful, creative, and most importantly for this video lecture, proof that liberating black's pieces with the c5-break in the Caro-Slav Structure can lead to wonderful things. Enjoy Danny's replay of this brilliant performance!
