ChessBase Account: Daniel King on Norway Chess

by Albert Silver
6/12/2017 – While many know and enjoy the videos made by GM Daniel King to comment on games from a wide variety of sources, including as is the case here: Norway Chess. While readers can certainly watch his videos in his YouTube channel, we present you the videos here as they appear in the video library in ChessBase Account, where you can find literally hundreds of videos to watch, including many that are normally for sale, that can be viewed at no extra cost to Premium subscribers.

At the airport, in the hotel or at home on your couch: with the new ChessBase you always have access to the whole ChessBase world: the new ChessBase video library, tactics server, opening training App, the live database with eight million games, Let’s Check and web access to


There is no question almost all of Daniel King's videos are available at his Youtube channel, just as they are in his YouTube channel, so why would you want to see it in the video library of ChessBase Account? There are a few reasons, not least of which is the huge library of other videos available.

Still, it is more than that: with feartues such as a 3D board, downloading the PGN of the game, and more. See below, the embed of the video of game four of Norway Chess, the epic win by Aronian over Carlsen.

There is a lot more to the video library of ChessBase Account than this though. You will also have access to his exclusive Playchess presentations, and those of other players such as Simon Williams and more. There are also many videos from the actual ChessBase Shop, not demos, but the full courses, which are available to Premium subscribers.
