Is it possible that black played g5 to trap the bishop at h6 and overlooked that the bishop is not intending to leave anyways?
Thanks, Roman - instructive lesson.
It's always exciting to see who will win in GM Dzindzichashvili's member analyses -- he says 'This position is hopelessly lost for [black/white]' at least a couple of times for each player!
Very good lesson! Thank you!
Unable to view video, screen is black. Why? Never-mind my video is back after I cleared temporay files for what-ever reason:-) OMG I have a black screen again...I have sound but no video, what gives??
Wonderful! Thank you for sharing, GM!
thanks for showing a game by high rated players . It was more instructive than usual
Master Dzindzi, you are the greatest!
Amazing as usual.
Roman chess hero ! I wish you would play in some tournaments :-)
Best chess teacher in the world.
Wow, instructive video.
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
Placing your bishop on an inferior square is a recoverable mistake, but opening up your king without reason can be decisive. Today GM Dzindzichashvili shows a game between two experts in the Boleslavsky Sicilian, an opening Fischer, Geller, and Gligoric all essayed (and of course Boleslavsky!). Watch the maneuvering required and the attack White gets with his f4 advance. Dzindzi isn't as critical as in recent videos, so the players must have done something right!

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!
