pumpupthevolume247: I am very grateful that you commented as that took me to this absolutely awesome game again! I think I appreciate the game [of chess in general] more or something, because as impressed as I was with this game, now I'm in love with it. Wow. Great, great chess.
Part teacher part uncle (below comment) - brilliant! Roman I never knew you was such a creative player like this - I'm definately continuing moving through your back catalogue of "best games" because they're amazing to watch and listen to, and I've picked up one or two ideas myself now from your teachings :)
sorry i donot wacht till finish
I like Roman's style, on the board and the way he describes his games. He comes across as part teacher, part uncle.
Beautiful combination! I also like the opening because it's one that I could adopt into my 1.Nf3 repetoire, making my game more flexible.
31...Kxg7 draws after 32.Nd7+ Nd4 33.Bxd4+ cxd4 34.Qe7+ Kh8 35.Qe5+ Kg8 36.Qg5+ Kh8 37.Qe5+ draw.
Awesome human chess under time pressure. Great winning combination!
To beat the more advanced players you must become a more advanced beginner, or as Roman would tell you - "You know how you tell that GM's are better than IM's? --- Ask any GM, you want to be IM? ... Than you have your answer! (Roman). LOL!
Wow, outstanding game and video. GM games can be so epic sometimes!
This pawn structure was also featured in the recent USAT Championship match between GM Friedel and IM Javad M. Very instructive video. Thanks!
my computer analyses is Ng7..with black ahead slightly..Kxg7 = and instead of Rd4 Black should have played Rf5.Rd4 gives white slight advantage.and Rf5=
do you have any really good tips for someone who is defeating beginners but is strugling to beat advanced players and wants to improve his game? great vid by the way!!!!!!!!
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
We are certainly in for a treat today, as Grandmaster Dzindzichashvili continues his series on his own best games! Roman's incredible desperado Rook sacrifice, featured in a Mark Dvoretsky book on attacking and calculation, left his strong opponent bewildered and dumbfounded. Though play was not perfect when computer analysis is applied, white's practical pressure was enough to take home the victory... Enjoy the spectacular finish as the white King journeys up the board!

GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
GM Dzindzichashvili was once one of the top players in the world. Born in Georgia, his chess first developed in the USSR. While still an International Master, he defeated opponents like Botvinnik and Bronstein before emigrating, first to Israel where he became a Grandmaster, and then to the United States. His accomplishments in the U.S. include two U.S. Championship first places, and one World Open. He has not played actively in tournaments recently, but has become even more famous perhaps in the U.S. for quality instructional materials, in particular chess videos! Roman Dzindzichashvili now teaches chess classes and seminars for Chess.com University. Feel free to contact him for more information!
