    people's comments regarding this series don't make much sense to me. some of them are way off base. this series is extremely helpful for the vast majority of the people who play on this site. or should be. I think some people think they are much better than they are and/or don't really understand the GM. his knowledge and understanding of chess is nothing short of incredibly profound.

    this video is irrelevant and has nothing to do with anything. absolutely no meaning or significance whatsoever. profoundly inappropriate.

    the comments are instructive and very funny. You cannot beat dzidzi's remarks on "horrible moves"! I am wondering how the "horrible move" player must feel been shot by Dzindzi in front of million viewers!

    For those of you complaining about how the 'Member Analysis' series isn't advanced enough for your level of play: news flash, there's an option to select 'advanced, intermediate, etc.' in the video selection menu. And if that's too hard to use, then how about just not watching the 'Member Analysis' videos? Pretty easy when the name of the series is THE FIRST THING IN THE TITLE.

    Mitsya + chessatore: I disagree with your statements that imply that analyzing amateur games has no value. First off, what you get out of something depends on your playing strength...same with any instruction-oriented material. No kind of instruction is going to help every type of player equally.
    Second, how many of your opponents played as well as Capablanca or Alekhine? Or to ask a related question, what happens when your opponent plays a non-theory move (one that's not a clear blunder, say) in a system that you're still learning?

    The point of the 'Member Analysis' series is to focus on thematic mistakes that are relatively easy to digest...why you shouldn't develop the king's knight to f3 when you're playing a Closed Sicilian system as white, for example. Personally, this wasn't one of the best videos in the series that I've seen, but I wouldn't imply that it was so bad as to be worthless. Hardly.

    I agree with chessatore on his point concerning the value of analyzing the games of anyone under 2000 rating.  I know I'd much prefer seeing GM games (or ideally Super-GM) games analyzed.  Heck, even jump back to some old Capablanca games, some old Alekhine.  Breeze through any opening discussion with the exception of pointing out common pitfalls or tactics and discussing general principles (rather than turning it into a discussion of how opening theory has evolved since the game was played), but get into the middle game and really dig into the strategy, planning, and tactics.  BUT . . . with that said . . . I DO see how anyone under 1800 would get a lot from seeing amateur games.  For one, they're simpler.  For another, they actually tend to feel like a game they themselves might play, so they feel they're getting coaching on their own potential (similar) errors and mistakes.  Plus, in the end, it's just a hell of a lot of fun listening to Dzindzichashvili analyze ANYTHING.  I love this guy.  I could listen to him all day.

    Really funny video. The sarcasm makes it entertaining -- I laughed out loud at least three times. I wouldn't mind if Dzindzi absolutely ruined me in a video, it's all in good fun.

    @evan7284 - well said... exactly my own thoughts. Every GM was once a 1500, I'm only just past the 1500's myself... great analysis my Roman and definately instructive but sometimes the sarcasm goes too far.

    I think Dzindzi is a great coach and I do like his videos but they are quite often harsh towards beginners and less able players. I'm sure Dzindzi himself was at this level of play once (when he was 3 years old!), but we've all been there and it's not nice to constantly put players down. It's not the first time he's done this and it's begininning to irritate now.

    Chessatore, I agree with you but I think this video is meant for beginners, and not much to learn for us intermediate/advanced players. I agree with you that theres way too many beginners video compared to advance video

    Ok, I stand corrected. Seems there is a solid number of players who found the video very instructive. Despite a feeling that it is mostly the condescending tone that gets people hyped, I am very willing to learn. Can someone point out a few learnings from this video?

    Mr. Roman can be tough on beginners... I would not want him to be my first coach, he'd probably smack my head after each of my moves.

    Excellent instructive Video.  Chesator can't speak english so it was not as useful for him.  Thank you Roman

    For me I tend to learn from what not to do about as much as from what to do.
