    I think white (David) made a wise practical decision early on to lose an exchange rather than his e4 pawn, even if it wasn't objectively best as GM Dzindzichashvilli indicates (and who am I to argue otherwise?). I think it was Larry Kauffman who discussed this exact same thing in an essay he wrote on material imbalances, i.e. choosing whether to lose an exchange versus a pawn in some middle games, and his 'rule of thumb' suggestion agrees with what David did. The fact that this was an over-the-board game and that black gave up his precious fianchettoed bishop to take the rook makes it all the more practical in my view.

    Anyway, interesting game indeed.

    Dzindzi's videos are the easiest to follow and the most interesting i think

    Yes, I think you're right. Dzindzi must have misspoken re: Nd5.

    agree with you.maybe we all are missing something but it is unclear what White has to offer after Re8 h3 Re6.

    Instead of Nd5, White will seems to be winning after Ne4, when Re8 faces B*f6 Q*f6 N*f6 + with a check

    At 7:57, what about Re8?  If Nxf6+, Qxf6 and Bishop can't take because of Re1 mate, no? I am missing something, probably.

    Nxc3 answered by Bxc3 and same result ;) white is  up a material

    at 2:52 can't black play nxc3 instead of qxg7 gaining a tempo on white queen and picking up extra pawn and doubling white's c-file pawns? I think the move order needs to be white nxe4 prior to bxg7.
