    Great Member Analysis lecture by GM Dzindzichashvilli once again.

    @ Pumpupthevolume247
    The Closed Sicilian is completely fine. It may not score quite as well for white statistically at the master level compared to the Open, but most of us aren't masters anyway. Plus the Open variations tend to be way more theoretical, plus openings almost don't even matter at the club level anyway. The better tactician will probably win most of the time regardless of the opening.

    at 10:10 i was trying to find the worst possible move for black before he said what it was and i saw b5 and that is just what black did lol. Dzindzi is hilarious in this one too. "And move like b5... you could go to jail!"

    I believe that Roman was being WAY too harsh on blacks position. It was no way lost. Might I be the one to suggest a king run to the kingside. Start with Kb7 followed by Rb8 and Kc1.

    I can't submit any of my games because GM Dzindzichashvili would probably commit suicide after trying to understand my stupid moves.

    Why didn't you want to play d4 in the beginning? Amanultra? Did you want to play an closed Sicilian?

    I can't find you playing Quale. i can't even find the member Quale? Did you play Quale on chess.com?

    Amanultra

    yes. I realize now that i would have two pieces for a rook. Nowadays i would play b4 without regard to material.

    " I was afraid of Nf3+ followed by Bxa1 After b4. I saw b4 and i would have played it next move but i didnt want the rook traded. Nowadays i could care less about losing an exchange in positions like that."

    Nf3+ is met with ...Nxf3 Bxa1 Rxa1 and you haven't lost an exchange at all. You've gained two pieces for a rook. More importantly, you've opened the black king position. 0-1

    I was afraid of Nf3+ followed by Bxa1 After b4. I saw b4 and i would have played it next move but i didnt want the rook traded. Nowadays i could care less about losing an exchange in positions like that. Sometimes i give away whole rooks for attacks. It was definitely an instructive game. I still think the final move is pretty.
