Thanks for calling me a monkey Danny! I just wanted to be like Komodo, but without an opening book. :-)
May 27, 2016 revisit. U-go !
Excellent. Keep teaching.
wish there were more videos like this
Dec 16 2014...good
Right on point ,very instructive !
opened ticket to chess.com support they are working on the video issue. I'm sure they will fix it soon.
Can't bring up your vido. Only get commentary page.
I can't watch them either. Not since the update.
Still can't watch videos ???
Awesome video yet again, Danny. Keep up these pawn structure videos! They're some of the best stuff on this here site.
Phlavsa in America beginning college courses are labeled as 101.
Can't view the videos on the website using the iPad anymore. However, they still work via the app for the iPad. What changed?
love this guy
Great series and complex opening strategy very well presented. I am a "sideline monkey" as he calls it who tries to avoid all this real knowledge with the Smith Morra and c3 lines so this will be very valuable.
why no end?
Looking forward to the next section. Thanks Danny!

IM Rensch provides the introduction to what is considered white's most dangerous, accurate, and potentially universal approach to the Open Sicilians. As with each video in this series, he breaks it down the perspective of "the little guys", highlights the positional features more than the "opening theory" and tries to provide a preview as to what will be discussed over the course of the next few videos...
