Here's another lecture with this game:
Roman says he played a perfect attack in this game and he appreciates doing so lol.
At 18:25, why not Bxc6 and then exd4?
This is the kind of game I want to play through over and over. Powerful, beautiful attack, very understandable, very instructive about a number of strategic and tactical ideas. Great game, Roman! Great video! Thanks!
Ace game, you are a very good teacher - your enthusiasm is infectious!!
Beautiful Bb8!! simple and great
In fairness to GM Walter, he fought and gave it his best shot.
Great game. Bb8 move is just awsome!! Thanks Roman for this instructuve video.
excellent game bb8 was awsome
Very spectacular game! Bb8!! was brilliant!
Roman, I wonder if h5 could have been answered by g5 keeping the g file closed by the f6-g5 pawn structure?
ojb: Thanks. Great link to TV Chess from the UK in 1980. Great show. Walter Browne looked and sounded way cool. Too bad about getting into time trouble.
Awesome game! blacks position looked solid. very nice moves!
I've been reading The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal recently, and the game Aronson-Tal, USSR Ch 1957 has a similar theme of the B blocking in the a-rook. Great game.
I ran demonstration board for Browne (and occassionally Larsen) in the 1974 World Open. He was very intense, with a tremendous amount of nervous energy. In tight positions he would grab his head with both hands and his knees would pump like a sprinter. In the post-mortums he would routinely rattle off 10 and 12 move deep variations. For all his intensity, he wasn't arrogant to the rank and file player; in fact, he seemed very approachable. It's a shame that he didn't rise to the highest levels in chess.
Beautiful game very well explained.
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
Witness another incredibly instructive game from Chess.com's own "living-video-author-legend," GM Roman Dzindzichashvili. His game against Browne, from the 1984 New York International, takes a sharp turn. At the end of several tricky variations, the "imbalance" of opposite colored bishops makes for a dynamic struggle. When Dzindzi puts the game away with the brilliant h5 breakthrough, Browne finds that his evaluation of the position was, well, wrong!

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!
