Perhaps Roman can do a video on what general plans there are to choose from in R endgames so that players can get things into perspective.
LOL! Instructive:) Thank you GM Dzindzichashvili :)
Thank you for a good analysis!Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
Literally couldn't stop lauging after 15:26: "another brilliant move Kg2 back". I agree Chess.com needs to add a category called 'Comedy'.
Lol well, this is comedy.
Good games for the "new master" by the beginning in the chess class !
Very instructive, thanks Roman. But indeed as mentioned by Crazymo at 16.41 the King can take the white rook.
White was like "I need Help! with a pawn up" LOL
It's fantastic how you turn an amateur game into in 'absolute and total' farce, like people voting for oligarch puppets. I am being kind, because I hysterically enjoy your politically correct justification for unskilled moves (sometimes). I don't have the skills, that you show us and explain so these amateur game analysis are very helpful. I did not know to push the pawns on your majority before fixing the equal side. I'm sure it's not a mindless rule to follow like doctrine, but here the rook is locked out with the pawns unmoved.
The "Member analysis" videos are what I personally learn the most from. I belive this is true for many lower rated players. Please continue to make more of those videos!!
great stuff was the game some sort of blitz or tun based?
Roman. You are cruel but honest. I am rated 1467 and feel you are talking directly to me.Thank you, and chess.com.
thx for the video
that was amazing
oh and btw, i laughed my head off at 16:41 because you dont even need an extra rook to win
@ 16.41 the king can just take the rock, proberly a small mistake in this line. Very nice vido though and i learn a lot from this, found myself in end game with advantage, cluless about what to do.
I love watching these.You make me laugh so hard
very good learend a lot :)

What's that you say? All rook endgames are drawn? Well not today! Somehow all three results are possible in a basic rook-and-pawn ending. GM Dzindzi does not approve of the apparent randomness of several of the moves by both players. Watch and see how king activity, a rook invasion, and an advanced pawn should have overcome the material deficit. Let's make Roman proud and learn our endgames!

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!
