Beginner's gold and handy for intermediates brushing up on known skills - very instructive, a super lecture!!
nice video, but it would be better to show the first part on board
Very poor lesson for a 1800. For the first half he talked about specific endings without any position on the board. This had absolutely no instructive value. If you are fairly experienced, you already know these. And if you are not, you want them to be explained with board positions, not like a chat over the phone.
Roman Allways Rocks!!! Thanks GM Roman!
i didn't really understand the queen ending part, but i guess that wasn't the aim of the video. the minor piece explanation was great however.
Thanks. Nice video. This really helped me understand the conditions for a strong bishop or knight endgame.
Great video, thanks!!
Wow. I learned more about endgames in those 19 minutes than the last year mindlessly playing against my computer. I feel that video alone justified my membership.
Seems interesting! Should have released it last week when I was still a member.
nice video. Maybe the cases discussed in the beginning could be accompanied by some quick examples on the board? Might have been a little more useful.
Excellent video. The general guidelines were very helpful. Please continue with this endgame series!
Can this video be translated into Englisv?
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
GM Roman Dzindzichasvili wants you to know that just like openings every endgame has basic principles too. The lecture addresses corresponding principles in particular endings such as opposite color bishops, knight vs. bishop and many more. After a summary of these principles Roman turns his attention to the subject at hand, minor piece endgames. Using none other than Fischer v. Taimanov to illustrate the principles of import.

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!
