I just had to upgrade to a diamond membership about 5 mins ago, because I just realise that Roman put out some more member analysis videos. He's defintely the best chess author and instructor on Chess.com. Other known greats are Elliot Liu and Ben Finegold.
Definitely the best video instructor on chess.com
It's just such a good idea for a video.. it's great.. he's an amazing teacher.
bishop that reminds you of a pawn.. move b5 back to b7 if it were legal hahaha I LOVE ROMAN. Roman is the absolute best.
Seconded to the person who said Roman's videos are a reason to be a premium member. It's one of the best spent $15 in my life.
I tripped out when I watched "Searching for Bobby Fischer" for the first time recently and saw Roman's cameo. Great player and great movie.
I can't see the vid because I'm not a subscriber, but I was caught by the title. There's an interview with Alekhine on youtube, a BBC interview if I'm not mistaken, done sometime either during the Second War or just before it. In the interivew Alekhine is asked about the role of memory in chess, does one need a great memory. Alekhine says this is one of the great misunderstandings about chess. He says 'chess is not played in the past, but in the present and especially in the future. The past has no role in chess. A chessplayer doesn't need to remember, he needs to see the present and the future of the position.' Its just awesome. Look for it. It's awe-inspiring.
Roman Dzindzichashvili's videos are the very reason I became a premium member - worth every penny of it and highly entertaining as well.
Thank you very much and please keep up the good work, Roman!
Roman is the only reason I will be a member too.
If this is your first one you need to go back and listen to some of the other member comentary ones (not his opening ones that chess.com forced him to do) some of them had me on the floor laughing.
My first Roman video, informative, and got a good laugh. Agree, comedy central.
'Even if it would take time, and tempo, I would take pawn on b5 and move it back to b7! If it was possible...' genius! ;P
I would love to see roman do stand up comedy
So I dont get it does Roman like b5 ??
The ONLY reason I keep my diamond membership is becuase of Roman. Its bad enough the Chess.com allows some boring and terrible video authors. But Roman makes me laugh everytime and I learn alot from him.
GM Roman calls every game he analyzes one of the most "very very instructive" games he's ever seen. And they always are! I love his style.
Very helpful thanks
Roman great sense of humor - this one more reason why I watch your vids ;)

Chess is like the roulette wheel? Black's best move is pawn on b5 back to b7? GM Dzindzi shares some funny and enlightening ideas in this latest Member Analysis video. His main point - if you were once worse, and now find yourself better, don't dwell on the early troubles. Think of it like the chess version of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." Sometimes it is better to forget and move on!

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!
