i think he missed bh6 but you get the idea he was trying to convey
If,after Re3, then Bh6 would white simply double his rooks on the e-file and allow black to take his rook on e3? Surely this would be very bad for black since white retains his dark-squared bishop and,after white recaptures on e3,the dark squares around black's king are very weak.
in the critical position, where you say Kf1 was a blunder to protect the rook on e1, if Re3 was played instead, why can't play reply with Bh6?
Good analysis, gives me some ideas how to choose better squares.
"This is 100% defensive. This is 100% offensive."
Stated so simply but yet such a powerful lesson. If I was in that game I don't know that my mind would have gone to moving the rook up like that yet after you show it, it becomes so obvious.
Great point you made and hopefully it triggers something in my brain to make me look for such possibilities in my own games.
Very good analysis but what happens if Black plays Bh6 instead of Qf6 for Re3 instead of Kf1
well..there are many possibility...but good
Thank You Roman.....extremely well done. I loved the part where you explained why black's advanced queenside pawns were more valuable than white's two center pawns! Until this, I would have thought the opposite. It's true that you must understand the concrete characteristics of every position to understand fully.
very constructive criticism
its not good
Thanks for the entertaining video. more power and hope to see more videos ahead!
Thanks GM Roman Dzindzichashvili.
the bishop maneuver to blockade the white queenside pawns really is helpfull, because that shows black has nothing to fear from white's queen getting to the queenside.
The postion were the king to f1 is bad and the rook has to protect itself by moving to e3 was especially informative to me. I liked your approach of explaining why a move was bad and what move would have been better...
Great video, but what a pathetic game. How could Black miss h5...
Please, do more Member Analysis videos. They are great fun!
FYI, video does not match the description.
Great video thanks.

In this highly interesting Member Analysis video, two of our stronger members face off for a hard fought battle! Dzindzi provides the usual frankly critical, and very entertaining analysis for our enjoyment along the way. When our members head for an Opposite Colored Bishop ending, it seems as though the game is about to fizzle out for an easy draw... Not so fast, Dzindzi!

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!
