at the end of irina crush game why not after Qf5+ Kh8 and after Qc8+ Ng1??
Why is ThunderHolt marked as an FM?
Just joined, mostly for the USCL, which used to be on ICC. Enjoyed the blitz-style recap, noting the relavent tactics and strategies present. Mr. Rensch's lexicon was also entertaining to hear. The Collyer win was reviewed by me personally and I also saw and asked myself why Re6+ wasn't played as it appeared to be the only move, followed by the knight check.
The broadcast was great last night. Sam looked a bit disheveled but even in that sleep deprived state it was highly entertaining! Thanks
Great highlights. I'll be looking forward to the full game analysis by GM Yermolinsky!
Ty good turning points ^^
Favorite line: "Rinse and repeat like shampoo" !
At the 12:16 I think the perpetual can be stopped by kh8 qc8+ ng8
@EnterTheDragon -- the live show on Chess.com TV is exactly like this as well! It's fast paced (for chess) and very exciting. IM Greg Shahade "The Commish" and his partner FM Mike Klein are superb! When these games come down to the endgames ... well that's when the thinking caps really get tested. Last night in one game if the player would have "auto-promoted" to a queen ... it would have resulted in a loss! So he had to under-promote to a N for draw!
Here in Canada 7 days a week our major sports channel recaps the previous days sporting results, events, and highlights in a show that replays all morning called SportsCentre. No matter what your schedule or how busy you are SportsCentre will keep you up to date with nearly any sport you are into. (SportsCentre is almost a religion up here)
Watching this USCL Week 1- Highlights video really gave me a feeling like I was watching the "SportsCentre of Chess". Very current.. Great video!
