Classic quote. "Bad games always stay bad." Roman could have been talking about my games.
Loved this game and the attacking ideas of Fischer ... a good and typical example of how handled the KIA ... well on the meeting with Fischer, after going throught what you did ... I'm damn glad you told him off. He was as crazy as a jay bird at that point, living like a slave for the World Wide Church of God in Pasadena. The only way you get any respect from him is to get right in his face like you did ... it's unpleasant but necessary. His insecurities ruined him. You went through more than he will ever know since you defeated the Soviet system in your own way to freedom. And your legacy for us in American is just as important if not more so ... because you will always be thought of in the highest regards ... so don't apologize for tell off Fischer ... if anything ... kudos to you.
liked it! Hope I can apply some of whtat I've learned--thanks!
I will have to strongly disagree that this should be thought of as one of Fischer's strongest games.
Really, his opponent just waited around for about 20 moves, and in that amount of time of course white will build up an attack. From there there is bound to be some tactic.
Nice game, but for someone like Fischer, nothing extraordinary by any means.
What about if after Bb2 (21:51) Black plays Bb7?
great job! I'm so tired of reading that GM "blank" made a mistake in this game because the newest computer data states a mate could have been made in less moves. I always think it is absurd to suggest a great player made a mistake or calculated incorrectly when he/she follows their logic and wins.
Great series.....absolutely love it...... Roman is a great storyteller and brings color and character to the game. Thanks Roman
Good game! Fischer is a genius!
This video is dare to me because I too play the KIA. I'm hoping to see more this opening in this series on Bobby Fisher. And Roman's story about Bobby's attitude towards playing chess was very insightful into how crazy Bobby was. Excellent video!
Fantastic personal story of Bobby Fisher.
Roman, it was fascinating, for me, to learn chess from someone who actually played Bobby Fischer and witnessed such a response from him after an innocent and hopefully helpful suggestion. One could see by the exchange how Bobby could be an extraordinary chess player, perhaps the greatest ever, and at the same time be clearly suffering from a psychological disorder. What a tragedy, for all of us, to witness one of our own suffer from such a disorder. We need to understand and honor him regardless of his affliction. Thank you for the story and the video.
dzinzis just like a monument of chess history isnt he
Fantastic & simple Kingside attack! I think many of us like Fischer exactly because he played very naturally, rather than getting himself entagled in some obscure positional struggle (though he did do that from time to time) he preferred to undertake brilliant attacks on his enemy's weaknesses... Great job, Roman!
Nice video, thanks for sharing. That was a beautiful kingside assault.
Loved, Loved, Loved this video.
Roman, you really need to do some videos on Tal! I've noticed you played him a number of times. There must be some great stories.
awesome game and commentary
I'M still on Morphy and beginning to look at Capablanca's games. But It seems Fischer would be next.....Thanks for a interesting look into his games and the KIA.
Enjoyed the explanations and possible variations.
Thanks for your histories and your great series.
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
Looking for Bobby Fischer stories you can't find anywhere else? You've come to the right place! Today Roman continues his review of perhaps the most interesting, and certainly the most controversial, World Champion of all time. As Dzindzi explains Fischer's greatest strength as the simplicity and directness of which he conducted the attack, we take away several incredible "gems of knowledge" regarding the King's Indian Attack.

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!
