International Master Danny Rensch starts another video series, using his second favorite “new tool” on Chess.com. Here he practices the very difficult Queen vs Rook position against a top computer. Will he reach the winning Philidor Position in time, or will he fall just short of winning before the 50 move rule. Watch and find out!

WARUM MACHT DER DAS TEUFELSZEICHEN, GLEICH AM AMFANG.
@6:24: "What I really wish is there was a way to check and win… immediately." Story of my life, Danny! =)
they should invent a new title for danny: DM – drama master
every vid he makes is a drama/thriller :p
The drill feature is a little flawed IMO. The engine's "best moves" when followed dont always win, whereas human moves are winning in the same position.
hahahah ,an IM
That was so entertaining! The nail biting cliff hanger…
in 8:12 wasnt qf3 best?
lol the machine keeps saying his moves are blunders 😛
Take the rook first and then checkmate. How hard can it be?
Hi Daniel Rensch. Im playing chess.com on my iPad for almost 5 years. Can you please make an update like the computer version on IOS version. Thanks
@8:10 Qf3 would give you a win wouldn't it?
If it was that hard for Danny, I stand no chance.
It's good to see this site constantly evolving and improving, good job Danny!!
can't find it on the regular chess.com interface
DANNY COME ON! On the 49th move you had Qg1+, forking king and rook, and on the 50th move you could have captured the rook!!
Danny – thank you for this. While I intend to practice with chess.com's drills, I found the part where you were unsure to be the most instructional, move 38-40-ish onwards. Seeing a titled player's thought process, idea discovery, pattern recognition, etc., as it happens live is truly insightful for us non-titled players. So thank you sir. Cheers
Are these features premium members only?
Glad to see a master can also struggle, makes me feel better, thanks Danny!
where is the drills section i do not see it under learn, is it the same as computer workout?
someday i'll be as good as you 😀
At @8:20 you had Qf3 forking the king and the rook
very clever technique from the computer, always using the diagonal of your king to hide
These lessons could be a lot more entertaining…
This guy plays chess for a living and he couldn't even beat this no way im trying this
is this feature for premium accounts only?
I can't find King and Queen vs. King and Rook
Thanks for this danny
move 20 qf3 is the best and it wind the game Mr.danielrensch
Lol, Danny, go get Derek Grimmell's Q vs R training database.
Chess.com Question ???How does drills give advice ?? Where's the answers? Your only right or wrong and no help? The 💡 light on iOS doesn't reliably work. So no coach. Please if someone else knows the work around please inform me??
So entertaining. Thanks Danny.
Why not f3
This is going to take forever if I do it
This drill literally gave me cancer
On your 20th move you should have played Qg3
movement 42 is very curious, it has nothing to do with what I had been doing and after that all that you throw are correct for the machine. very curious
To all the idiots who have no idea, QvR endgames are almost impossible to win without blunders unless you learn the patterns specific to them. Let alone IMs making videos, GMs struggle. That said, Danny obviously hasn’t studied it properly himself.
8:12 missed Qf3+
What about 18. Qb7+ (Fork on Black king and Rook)?
The setup with the King on the edge of the board (a-file in this example) and its Rook cutting Queen's King off, is a typical defence; I have worked out a logical step-by-step winning method.
This makes me feel a lot better about my chess 😂😂😂
Life hack: FastFoword to 18:24
Why that guy teaching us when himself does not know. And do you remember, starting he said, engine is blundering and I am gonna win rook 😂😂😂
This makes me think that even I can become an International Master 🙂
IMHO the end game should be based on certain rules, and should be just robotic to win.
Sorry Danny, but you failing this is awesome.
I cant find this on Chess Mobile apppp! Help
