|May-24-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Daniel John King|
KING, Daniel J.
|May-24-06|| ||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.|
|May-24-06|| ||Whitehat1963: For some reason this guy's name reminds me of the Bible.|
|Sep-08-06|| ||HolyKnight: I like King as a chess teacher. I have his two DVDs on the French, and though they are a little old by now. They are still very instructive. He also plays the openings he writes about! Like English Defense, French and Najdorf. I hate GMs that will write a book or make a DVD and not play the opening over the board.|
|Sep-08-06|| ||chancho: I think this is Daniel King's biggest win.

|Sep-08-06|| ||apawnandafool: <holyknight - i hate gms that make a dvd and not play the opening otb> what do you think of this interview regards the new alapin cd?|
chessbase: What is your general evaluation of the Sicilian with 2.c3? What is your conclusion?
Grandmaster Rogozenko: "I would say that with good play from both sides, the Alapin Sicilian often leads to an "equality slightly better for White."
chessbase: How is your personal score against the Alapin?
Grandmaster Rogozenko: "I have never played Alapin myself with White...[but with] Black I faced Alapin many times and my overall score is positive..."

|Sep-09-06|| ||HolyKnight: <apawnandafool> 1.e4 gives you best tactical games for the most part. |
Now I hardly know the Alapin. When I look at 1.e4 as white, you are going to get Sicilians coming out your ear. Petrof defense is supper tough to beat I understand. I play the French my self. I love to see 1.e4 players. I love to play my French against it! If you play 1.e4 you got to study openings. It might give you some real nice tactical games. But be prepared, because you know black will be!
|Mar-26-07|| ||Richard Taylor: I beat King in quick game on the Internet once!|

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..|
|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'.|
