|Mar-26-07|| ||Richard Taylor: I beat King in quick game on the Internet once!|
|Mar-26-07|| ||Richard Taylor: <Peligroso Patzer: I can highly recommend Mr. King's recent (2004) book "Test Your Chess with Daniel King", published by Batsford. Although I am generally not a fan of books in the format "rate your chess by seeing how many moves from grandmaster games you can correctly predict", I picked this one up (notwithstanding its boring cover) and after several minutes of browsing, I found it to be so exceptionally well-written, both in terms of chess analysis and background narrative, that I decided to purchase it. My more thorough subsequent perusal of the book has left me very pleased with that decision. In addition to its excellent instructional value, I found many parts of the book highly entertaining, for example, the introductory section to Chapter 16.>|
Sounds good: I will keep an eye out for it.

|Jun-16-09|| ||notyetagm: GM King's Power Play 10 is on Calculation.
I have heard that there are two more DVDs in the Power Play series planned.
Anyone know what subjects <Power Play 11> and <Power Play 12> will cover?
|Jul-02-09|| ||asianmonkey147: wow. really? i enjoy his powerplays|
|Jul-24-09|| ||SirChrislov: "The most difficult part of chess to master is calculation, once you master calculation, you're well on your way(if not already there) to becoming one of the world's top 10 elites." |
|Aug-29-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: Where's his sister, James?|

<Watching the games of the 2010 Olympiad
It goes without saying that the options to watch the games live are wide and varied. You can watch them at no cost on Playchess, enjoying the software's new options to display multiple boards at the same time, and if you are a Premium member, live grandmaster commentary will be provided on Playchess for every round by GM Daniel King, author of the best-selling Power Play series, and GM Yasser Seirawan. If you miss the live games, you can always watch the commentary after the fact, or get an abridged tale via the Daily Roundup show also hosted on Playchess at 6 PM UTC (2 PM New York). <<<Again, if you miss the show, it remains available on the server at your disposal.>>>>
Anyone know how to watch GM King's Daily Roundup on the playchess.com server?
I jut got a Premium Membership and cannot figure it out.
|Feb-05-11|| ||KingG: Does anyone know how many languages this guy speaks? I've seen him present a chessbase video in German, and his French accent seems pretty good when he reads out French names and places, so it's very possible he speaks that as well.|
|Mar-10-11|| ||wordfunph: GM Daniel King co-authored "Kasparov Against the World" with Kasparov..|

|Aug-29-12|| ||Richard Taylor: All the best Daniel!
He knows 1 million languages.>
|Aug-29-12|| ||jahhaj: Can't believe there's no photo of Danny. Longtime Guardian TV critic Nancy Banks Smith once described him as 'the kind of man for whom the adjective Byronic was invented'.|
|Jul-30-13|| ||HeMateMe: I noticed a recent story on chessbase saying that Daniel King sings and plays guitar, as well as all of his chess activities. I searched utube for a jam session, but only found chess videos. More's the pity.|
|Oct-03-13|| ||jancotianno: One of the best chess analysers. His youtube channel is fantastic.|
|Feb-07-14|| ||HeMateMe: You suppose he gets laid much? He looks very confident, and seems to have a lot of Interests outside of chess. Girls like that. You don't have to be a GM to be a babe magnet, do you?|
|Oct-12-14|| ||crazyim5: One of the greatest Chess commentators of all time and his profile gets no photo?!|
|Nov-26-14|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: Danny and Simon Williams will be commentationg on the Qatar Open 2014, which features Kramnik(!!) amongst others. http://www.qatarmastersopen.com/vid...|
|May-11-15|| ||TheFocus: <Having spent alarmingly large chunks of my life studying the white side of the Open Sicilian, I find myself asking, why did I bother?> - Daniel King.|
|Jun-12-15|| ||waustad: This year he'll be doing summaries of the day's events at the Mitropa Cup. I'd seen that it is being broadcast via chess-results, but chessbase will be doing commentary too.|
