at 12:08 Roman says "go back to a8 with rook" but can't black just win a pawn with Nxe4! there? ...fxe4 Bxb5 and white cannot recapure due to pin on C file.
Great Series! At approximately 9:00 is it possible for black to play Bxe4 instead of Bxa2?
I had never viewed or read any instructional material from GM Dzindzichasvili. For some reason I was under the impression they would be quick but not comprehensive works.
I WAS WRONG !!
I should have used them. www.chess.com has blown my perception I had of it out of the water.
This video just made me an instant advocate of this line. I never seriously adopted 1... c5 as Black in my repertoire because it seemed dull and the type of positions were always defending the positional crunch White may obtain.
GM Dzi... You inspired me through this video to play 1... c5 for a win in my style.
I am mainly, until now, a 1... e5 player vs the English, and will continue to use it, but I can't wait to learn more and eventually adopt 1.. c5 for good.
It doesn't seem like the key position is one that is talked about in the video.
Great video - I've always liked the Maroczy setup for white but I like your system against it simply because you go for material imbalance but get a great initiative and that definitely appeals here!
thanks for showing me a lot better moves to do in chess sorry i didn't get to watch all of it because i don't have unlimited access
My first moment so let me explore may be later I ll have some thing to say.
Thank you Roman! I love the presentation! I especially love the fast play and development on the queenside coordinating with creating a potential outpost on c5.
Thank you GM Roman... as usual it is excellent presentation. clear and concise.
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
GM Dzindzichashvili continues his series on the English Opening, reviewing the popular transposition into the Maroczy Bind structure that commonly occurs in the Accelerated Dragon Sicilian. Take notes on black's best plans and Roman's "home cooked" analysis. He highlights black's modern idea with the a5-pawn advance approach, among many other things. Be careful not to fall for move order traps, and 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!
