This is art, not boring.
If you know what i mean :-)
this is chess at its most nitty-gritty, only a truely skilled player can force a win from this madness!
great video as always,thank you!
Not boring.....brilliant......i must remember to always play boths sides of the board on these closed positions on end games .....Roman makes it look easy
Beautiful, that's just beautiful Roman.
nice jod Roman and really just stop arguring about wether this video is boring or not
Very interesting and instructive!
wow... i swear i would've totally been the black and eat the knight because i am NOT very advanced...
He thinks he's above the LAW.
Wow. This Lawdog is something else. I have not even watched the video and I am already thoroughly entertained! Grats Roman :)
Lawdoginator is entitled to his opinion as we all are but a well rounded player must be able to play all types of positions well. Tal created positional as well as tactical masterpieces as did Alekhine, Bronstein, Kasparov and other attacking geniuses. As for the idle banter and labeling we should not engage in that inasmuch as we are much too mature. Continue the good work Roman !
I value Lawdog's feedback, which was really more about a trend in the videos lately, rather than this one specifically. I don't think he went about it quite the right way, but I appreciate him raising his concerns, as feedback helps make the site better.
Thanks to everyone else for their comments as well. :-)
Best Wishes and Happy Weekend, David Petty
thank you sir, very nice game! very paticent man to take it slow wining position.. most of us like the fast win that is why we still strugule in the c or d class
Roman is truly a chess pro, and I would like to thank him for another great video, but sometimes in chess, you have to be patient and slowy squeeze out the win. As a fan of attacking chess myself, I can safely say that slow, "boring" variations work just as well. That`s chess.
Im just having a good time learning, and being here will all you chess players. Thank You.
My sentiments exactly, these comments are rude and offensive. I come here to have a little fun, play some good chess (when I'm not half asleep,lol)...so please, spare me the melodrama...if I want that I'll watch a soap opera like The Young and the Restless,LOL
these childish comments are disapointing. also, i feel, slightly disrespectfull to Roman. thanks again Roman for another great video
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
Roman cooks us a tasty dish this weekend, bringing us one of his best games -- and with it, a highly instructive Knight ending! Roman's flawless technique in this game is something to aspire towards, and his ability to use the Principle of Two Weaknesses method is amazing! Ultimately, the threat of the "a4-pawn expressway" would lead to a lost position of Zugzwang for black.

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!
