Really enjjoying these Greatest Chess,,,Vids thanks
13:40 why not h5 for black, looks like it fortifies its king
An amazing man. Thank you for sharing, GM Dzindzichashvili.
Great thanks Roman!
is good to mention around min 15 that knight on c6 can not be taken so this motiff also contributes to the final idea behind Rxe6 - since this is not immediately obvious thanks for the valuable lecture
I can think of a reason that Fischer wouldn't play Karpov (or anyone else for that matter).
I really had no idea Karpov was a busniness at all, especially on some George Steinbrener levels. He is running for Parliament now too I've heard.
Ace stuff! I love your lectures!
Fine game. GM Karpov has had an amazing career! I'll never forgive Fischer for his refusal to play Karpov. The world was waiting for that matchup.
if Russia supported him that much, did they like torture the robbers that mugged him?
This beautiful game can be found at
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
Roman's review of Karpov's wonderful victory over Topalov from Linares 1994, as good as it is, doesn't compare to his detailed recount of the "man" Karpov and the events surrounding his 50th birthday celebration. GM Dzindzi dazzles us again with his strikingly personal insight into the life of one of the greatest chess players of all time. Enjoy!

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!
