Nf5 = awesome move
What I like so much about this video is that GM Dzindzichashvili explains his move choices by talking about his own ability to dictate the style of the game, as well as what his opponents did to leave him with opportunities for dynamic play. His ability to evaluate positions (for example, to see total dominance where a weaker player might mistake it for an even poisition) is particularly impressive.
Makes me wanna play the Kings Indian Attack!
Excellent game and amazing to see how easily white's position collapsed in first game. At the end of game 2, Black said, " There are more threats than I can keep track of!!!". What a game! Thank you GM Dzindzichashvili. Can you tell us how you work up such crushing positions? What are your guiding principles in a game?
Awestruck,great vid! will watch again! :D
GM Roman, love your style of teaching, clarity & command over the subject matter.
I just love your style! I was making a mental note about how you went after all the defenders and then you go, "just attack every piece defending blacks king and then jump on him - it's easy!". Really instructive. Keep'em coming because I have a lot to learn.
Roman you are a great player and teacher thanks for your games and comments
2 great games!! Gotta love the power of the 2 knights in the last game
Nice I one to watch more of this games
Great video! thanks.
i love your game analysis video,
thank you GM Roman
Excellent! Very instructive.
Another really great video, Roman!!! Your entertaining way of presenting all your videos make them worth the time if one didn't even learn a thing about chess.
Mere mortals could not ever hope to duplicate these kinds of attacks, but there are some principles explained that can be worked on.
nice ones, very impressive
Very good video, I really like the way you explain things.
If any 1 else watches this after this post I would really like to see explained some possible checkmating ideas from the last sequence 17:59.
I am trying to improve on my tactics.
Thanks very much
Awesome! Thank you for the new video! I had to watch this one twice (I'll probably watch it more later). *spoiler alert for those that haven't watched*
Three games in a row where the rook is offered up- either for checkmate, equal material or for large positional advantage (counting the game in your previous video). I'd be worried going into a N&R vs R&R endgame, but your game was impressive as usual. I like the idea of removing the defending bishop In the first game, so that you were able to pick up the weak pawns and equalize material. I thought Nf5 during the second game was pretty awesome as well. Thanks again!

Getting stomped by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili is not fun! Just ask IM Herzog and GM Garcia! In today's video the Dzindzinator takes two players to Smash-town with style. First we see a Four Pawns Attack/Benko Gambit go terribly wrong for white, then we witness Roman execute a flawless King's Indian Attack, culminating in a beautiful mating net with the Queen and Knights.

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!
