this series is so entertaining.
This video was very entertaining. I'm new as a diamond member, but after watching this video (on my kindle, while smoking a cigar on my porch) I realized what a great value this chess.com membership really is. What a great site.
Even if a lot of this material is over my head, the videos are fun and entertaining. And the central lesson is well learned: finish your opponent off! No messing around in chess. Got it.
I look forward to watching a lot more from you GM Roman Dzindzichashvili, keep up the great work! Your instruction and humor is appreciated.
i like how his voice tone is like he would punch the guy in the nuts if he saw him on the street :D Great vid tho...
I agree with all of the comments. Hilarious!
If only my wife didn't play better than I do lol
hilarious as always
Can we not have some brilliant stuff played by our online members analysed instead of these kinda torturous games...?
This disaster looks like half of my games.
c4 is the losing move, as i think, every other move classic
very nice and instructive video as always
Thanks Dzindzi :-) Nice and funny vid.
HAHA "It's like he was called to work and his wife finished his game." Fun video.
Every dzindzi video in 1 paragraph:
White played terrible moves. You can't play chess like this. Black played horrible moves. Why? It's a mystery. The game was very instructive.
Thanks for sharing that game @jgregora - the power of passed pawns!
LOL XDXDDDDD jgregora, I laughed at that
Thanks for the tips.
"Three rook endgames are always won for one of the sides" oh yeah?
Even if my endgame ability is terrible, I'm pretty confident about the three rook endgame.
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
The crime: Bringing the queen out too early. The setting: f3. The motive: Attacking down the long diagonal. But Grandmaster Sheriff Dzindzichashvili shows the the swift hand of justice should have been meted out by Black's four minor piece constables. The law never quite catches the criminal, despite ample evidence of misplaying the opening. The handcuffs are never secured and White eventually goes free on a technicality. Put away the other side when you have the chance!

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!
