so funny. I bet it was a lightning game.
lol just such a horrible move
this video was very funny and taught me a lot
Ba1 was probably a mouse slip
A series GM vs amateur could be instructive as well
I love these amazing games for beginners. Very entertaining and instructive.
Awesome video! Roman is a good teacher...
"Do not make a move you cannot justify" - if I followed that advice, I would lose on time before the first move.
"Ba1 is move from hell." haha.
Perhaps he didn't want to lose his pawn?
i've learnt everything from chess.com video's so cheers for merging facebook chess with chess.com as i would know nothing at all. time control was 15+10 and we both had more than enough time throughout. i was as puzzled as everyone else with most of the moves haha. thanks to roman, i knew you'd enjoy that one!!!
"I don't know how people can find these moves." Hilarious!
?????? was his move lol
Nice, entertaining analysis! I can just hear the frustration dripping from Roman's voice.
Very nice! There is allways something to learn from youre videos!!
Even though they make wors mistakes then me i still pick up very good advices I have not thought about before :)
Nicely said Roman! I was laughing a few times in this one.
Love the videos Mr. Dzindzichashvili. Thanks!
Many good lessons in this game. Thanks, Roman.
haha, I love the tongue and cheek: burying the bishop etc etc. I'm lower rated than these guys and some of their moves, I could see myself making. Terrible blunders to learned eyes, but to us beginners - not so much.
Ba1??????, because two questions marks is too generous. It's an incredibly hard move to find, because everyone knows the king belongs on the open file! As usual, educational, and hilarious! Thank you, Roman! :)
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
Sometimes the teacher just can't hide his reactions! GM Dzindzi has more than subtle criticism for both sides in this Member Analysis game. His critique ranges from disdainful to vitriolic, especially when White plays the unexplainable Ba1? "The worst that I've seen in a long time." The mistakes continue all the way to the thematic endgame. If perfect chess is your thing, stay away from this one. If you like the struggle of realistic imperfection, today is your Mona Lisa!

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!
