Very intereresting analysis GM Dzindzichashvili. I enjoyed the tactical ideas in the end.
Thank you good Sir
Well, if white sacs back with Bxc4 dxc4 and then Nxc4 Black is up a pawn and can respond with something like Qd5 and then Bb7 putting pressure on g2. White would be praying for a draw in a position like that. Also, according to Roman's variations white is winning after Bxh7+, so why not play the best move?
Great lesson from a french fan! Should help my improvement.
Very interesting video, thank you for sharing Roman!
Can you or someone explain around the time of bxh7 why white can't just give back material with 1. bxc4?
After 1. ... dxc4 2. Nxc4, the black queen is forced to move and the knight is ready to jump to an output deep in enemy territory.
There is a useless check black can try, but after a bit of retreat, white can bring his rook into the game and I don't really see anything stoping the knight from getting to that outpost eventually.
great video he has a wonderful way of teaching.i enjoyed this very much,even though im a beginner.started today[lol]
Sorry, mystoffelees, but that is your own fault. It is clearly pointed out on the subscription page that videos are only part of the diamond membership. Reading is difficult, I know.
Go diamond Mystoffelees and you'll enjoy everything chess in it's fullest learning could offer. Videos are so much better than reading books of chess.
I could never say I was scammed when I went diamond.
One thing I appreciate with video lessons is that all lecturer's give their all, that is why it is very interesting and we are learning a lot.
Vitiugov's "French Defence Reloaded" cites Zherebukh-Jaiswal, New Delhi 2011, which follows Roman's analysis after 22 f5 and 23 Rae1 through 27 Rfe1. He does not do much analysis, credit Roman or cite computers.
Excellent as always! Looking forward to the next video in the series.
full videos are available in memebresia diamond, and also the other way unlimited options.
reviewer does not think well
worth this site are illustrative videos
This video is another great lesson from Grandmaster Roman
So, I thought by "upgrading" to a gold membership I would be able to enjoy the videos. Evidently this is not the case. I am very disappointed and feel scammed...
Thank you ! You are the Greatest ! :-)
That was excellent, those winning lines were so deep!
thanks very instructive video grandmaster

GM Dzindzichashvili breaks out the big guns, or rather machines, to show us some dynamic lines in the French Defense. First Black offers a piece for active play, then White returns the favor on the opposite wing. But a standard Greek Gift this is not - White must play extremely accurately to retain the advantage. You might be surprised that the methodical buildup trumps the quick strike - watch and see for yourselves.

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!
