nice video it helps me very much(srry for my bad English I'm Dutch)
Felt like I was in a comedy club, hilarious.
In the rapid dragon sicilian, then, how does black most effectively get his kingside knight into play?
Good video, but I don't play the Sicilian Defense that much.
I was also wondering if e6 and g6 is always bad in the Sicilian as Roman said. I've seen strong GM's do it against the Closed Sicilian. Is this an exception or is it still bad?
"..&a new way, which was not nown before.. whcih is quite an accomplishment.. not in a good way"
"what is that!? developing knight? no. makes no sense."
rofl.. you are very entertaining(:
thanks for video lesson on chesse,I hope mr can explain detail next step
Very nice video! To a beginner like me, this is much more instructive compared to a master-level game analysis.
I'm not strictly a beginner maybe intermediate as I play OTB for my club quite successfully (4.5/7), but as a die-hard fan of the Sicilian, it's a big part of my black repertoire, I actually enjoyed this lecture. I didn't know you have a DVD out on the Sicilian, I might have to get it if your teaching method is the same as your video lectures on here - witty story telling and comments needed as well as super-instructive teaching! Where can I buy it? Thanks :)
I greatly enjoyed the video. I have no formal chess training. The video was clear in the moves discussed. The video was very informative and entertaining.
Great video Roman!
Is there any exception in the Sicilian Defense in which e6 and g6 could be played correctly ? For example , 1. e4 - c5 2. Nf3 - e6 3. d4 - cxd4 4. Nxd4 - a6 5. Bd3 - g6 .
Roman, you are a treasure! I laughed out loud twice at your sarcasm... very refreshing.
And Danny Rensch saves the day!
@algorab and freetringers -- This video was mis-labled and was intended for the Beginner Level. The mistake has been corrected. Sorry if you feel it wasted your time, but we feel it is definitely an instructive (and of course entertaining with Dzindzi's banter ) video for Beginners.
Great video. thanks.
lol i feel better now ! compared with those players i;m not so bad ! i must say though i;m not too clear why black giving up his bishop in the game was bad but the examples Dzind. gave were ok .
Why is this labeled intermediate? Don't hang pawns for no reason. Don't spend tempi trading good bishops for bad bishops. Certainly beginner material. It was a sloppy game by both sides, and although Roman's instruction is a good reminder not to play moves without thinking, I think there are a lot of more interesting games being played on chess.com.

All Sicilian players know not to combine g6 with e6 in an "Open" Sicilian... or at least they should! In this Member Analysis video, GM Roman Dzindzichashvili explains this further, offering some enlightening descriptions and tips on the given position. Though white may not have taken full advantage of this mistake right away, he does get second 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!
