so this is why I keep running into these things.....
Don't act like such a blowhard, especially considering that your playing stats don't appear to be much better than mine. Why bother to quibble over moves at depth 16 and beyond when, given your playing stats, you most likely won't reach theory move 16 (or beyond) except possibly in correespondence anyway?
BRING ON THE 9 HOUR LECTURE!
Ill take the 9 hor lecture if it is as good as this video troughout.
2 thumbs up
Мне очень понравилось
2.c3 Sicilian has never appealed to me but this was a very good lecture on somerthing I don't know much about. It's always handy to know white's plans so I know what I can play as black to counter!
i like the chameleon...
Great video. I'd like the 9 hour lecture!
It is very interesting.
Great video. thanks. Maybe all the Teachers on chess.com could chip in for the whole nine hour lesson! lol.
@ BogatyrSvyatogor: Quite a few (books, videos, e-books), but Sveshnikov's book is the best, by a big margin.
Why no coverage at all of Black's main current reply, 2...Nf6 3.e5 Nd5 4.d4 cd4 5.cd4 d6 6.Nf3 Nc6 7.Bc4 de5?
Also there's nothing about another highly topical line- mainly Black playing ...d6 and ...e6 before committing the b8 knight.
Will the be covered in another video, or they are refuted somehow?
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
In Part 2 Dzindzi covers his recommendation for white against the "Main Line" 2...Nf6, as well as how to handle the 2...e6 (French Transposition) variation. He provides information on all of your different options, and stresses that you can use these lines as a foundation, but you must still do the work to complete your repertoire if you truly intend to play the Alapin against the Sicilian...

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!
