<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..|
|Jun-27-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: A couple of links to Danny King related news and stuff which will be of interest:|
|Aug-28-12|| ||Llawdogg: Happy Birthday!|
|Aug-29-12|| ||waustad: A belated happy b'day to Daniel King.|
|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.|
|Apr-03-16|| ||Octavia: <Can't believe there's no photo of Danny.> I agree|
|Apr-03-16|| ||mckmac: <Octavia> <Can't believe there is no photo of Danny> I agree too. Surely GM King deserves his high profile on the media side of contemporary chess.|
|Aug-18-16|| ||mckmac: <jahhaj> Crikey, Your call for a photo for Daniel King was four years ago...I think we need to get up a petition. I know there are hardworking volunteers who look after this sort of thing, but one hesitates before imposing.|
<...for whom the adjective Byronic was invented.> Of course blokes can't get away with this kind of journalistic malarkey these days:)
Probably a good thing too.
But Byron did say "In play there are two pleasures for your choosing; The one is in the winning and the other the losing", which is quoted in a book by IM Angus Dunnington.
|Aug-28-16|| ||diagonal: Happy birthday Dan, best wishes from Switzerland!|
Dan beating Anand, <winning at Goodricke Open in Kolkota>:

Watch and enjoy this interview by Daniel King with Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, record winner at the traditional Biel Festival:

Dan being with a bunch of young Brits a regular and popular player in chess events in Switzerland during the 1980s and 1990s.
|Aug-28-16|| ||HeMateMe: Didn't King represent England in one or two Olympiads? I think I saw that in Walter Browne's book.|
|Aug-29-16|| ||diagonal: European Team Championship yes, in Haifa (1989) on board four - but apparently not at Chess Olympiads: http://www.olimpbase.org/1989e/1989... (ETCC), http://www.olimpbase.org/playerse/d...|
|Aug-30-16|| ||JimNorCal: re: getting a photo posted. Access any search engine, such as bing.com, enter a search string like "gm daniel king photo" and a nice set of images will display.
However, most/all will be annotated "may be subject to copyright". I wonder if that could be an issue.|
|Aug-26-18|| ||Returning Native: There's a good picture in the book 'Sveshnikov vs the anti Sicilians' plus many other more or less hilarious pictures of past and present chess greats.|
