HOW TO THINK LIKE A CHESS MASTER is probably the best video I have purchased from anyone. Danny is excellent at explaining so that anyone can understand each example. I only have a 1100 rating and am already getting better positions and winning more games. I have other videos by Danny and I can say the same for any of his lessons. They are all great but this is my favorite and so happy to have purchased it.

Strange Material Balances. Danny makes things more exciting for the viewer by sacrificing his queen on move 6! An exciting game ensues where he gives a lot of good advice on how to handle positions with strange material imbalances.

Beating Mediocre Openings. Danny sits down and faces a strong opponent who chooses a “less-than-stellar” opening. After struggling to find a clear win Danny gives his philosophy on how to approach such situations.

Theory of Dynamic Compensation. Time for Danny to employ one of his favorite openings. He must rely on the “dynamic tension” in the position in order to find compensation for a sacrificed pawn. When White’s pieces can’t find good squares, he eventually lashes out, allowing Danny to “stick a thorn” into white’s position.
