I again completely agree with shequan. what a smart guy.
GnomeChompski: with e3 you are protecting pawn while developing and making usefull moves, b3 is completely pointless and doesnt help development at all...
Bravo GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
I found this small examples , very , very instructive!!!
This was a 1 minute game. This much is clear
White player's brain appears burnt-out
white was kind of like someone who wandered up to chess board for first time ever and someone lies to them, misinforms them, and tells them that the goal of game is to try to put your pieces in pretty pattern on board.
W0w, Hilarious commentating by Dzindzi !! As soon as i will catch my breath ,i will watch the other half!! Great analysis !!
good video but remember we have all been Begins .
"Uniquely bad" LMAO!!! Hilarious narration!
Yeah that does help, thank you :)
Someone explain to me why that b3 move by white is so bad. I am quite new to chess and am still trying to figure out. It looked like a decent move to me because b3 backed up his center pawn (his "plan" would be to develop because its still the opening game phase) Unless chess theory for the Grunfeld aims for a different purpose someone please explain it to me, thanks.
always love the member analysis games !!!! keep 'em comin
great observations and comments to remember..."uniquely bad" game that require the witness protection program for white!
@Derived and others looking for it: http://www.chess.com/forum/view/game-analysis/member-analysis-auditions is where you can post games for our next batch of member analysis...
i was saw your video'how to think like a grandmaster' it was very well but you didn't give strong tips. plese answer and give me some tips
GReat video.. I love the fact that he uses small rated players games, because those are the moves that we make so much as low rated players. I use (cough) a6 and h6 all the time, to stop the "chances" of an attack. OKOK I know !
GM Roman has always been interesting to listen to for me, since years ago on ICC, as a commentator. He was hilarious then also! What is better, however, is that his instructions are so simple and straight forward.
Thanks, alot GM Roman D. !
How does one submit a game for Member Analysis?
in my opinion, in the opening, u don't need to exactly "have a plan" By the word "plan" my meaning is that the player is trying to accomplish something concrete, based on 1.The opponent's weaknesses 2.Their superiority on a certain area 3.A certain goal that they have in mind. I definitely don't think this is what should be done in an opening. I think what Dzindzi means is that the pieces must be developed harmoniously, in response to the opponents development, as well as purposefully, so that in the middle game they can be useful togerther. Furthermore, dont drop material without at least some compensation
This is sooooooo funny and educational!
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
A man without a plan is a dog chasing cars! GM Roman Dzindzichashvili may not use the same terminology, but his criticisms of the following game should be just as sufficient. Learn vicariously from your fellow Chess.com members about the negative effects of playing without any structure or goal in mind. Simply put: Don't do it! Or the big, bad Roman will get you...

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!
