RENSCH, Daniel

Sep-27-09  dx9293: Congratulations, Danny, on becoming an International Master!
Dec-09-11  Sho: I think Mr. Daniel Rensch has a name with good pun-potential: gut rensching, monkey rensch, rensched out, dude Rensch, a Rensch-style House, ?.

However, finding good puns is different from recognizing good games. I'd leave it up to someone else to connect the two.

Also, Daniel Rensch narrates instructional chess videos for kids--good for him.

Feb-22-13  kellmano: I quite like this guy's videos:

Not everyone's cup of tea I'd imagine, but I find it amusing and mildly instructive.

Feb-17-19  ajile: I enjoy watching his chessbrah tourneys when he wears his Burger King uniform.
