10.e5 was first played in 1989 by J.Franke vs. M. Mueller, Germany
Thanks for this video and great insights into the game alternative moves!
roman please make and opening video on slaying the dragon dvd of yours.. for chess.com it would be nice if you did i the near future nice game by daniel gurvich..thxs
great video. after f5, roman says the best move for black would be castling, but after that, can't white play f6? that would trap the bishop and thus black would have to wreck his kingside pawns to deal with it. no?
I would love to see a video or article or Chess Mentor course on the method of "calculating systematically" that GM Dzindzichashvili taught Gurevich, as mentioned in http://main.uschess.org/content/view/10809/608
Daniel Gurevich, future grandmaster. I wonder what he will be up to in five or ten years. Watch out Magpie!
Great video. I assume that blacks' f6xBg5 would have been wrong because of white's RxBe6, and after RxRe6 white would have taken the rook on e6 with Qf7+. According to Fritz 9 the resulting position would have been roughly equal (-0.12), but I think that Fritz is wrong: black's pawn on d5 is going to fall very soon
yes but he did precisely that and won.
Thanks Dzindhi I was wondering what happened in this game. I know that this game pushed Daniel to the 2200s.
Personally I think the guy just hung the e-pawn. I would be happy to be Black in several of the variations given by Dzindhi.
The best thing about this video is that Daniel is only 12 years old. WOW, thats insane!!! Can someone contact his parents and find out exactly what they feed this kid....lol....I would like to know!!!
I still don't get in mind what the video showed. would you mind describing it in details !
I found this position after f5 in chess.com games explorer although through the french defense, kings indian attack. It was played between Franke Johannes and Mueller Michael in 1989/1990 (?) . f5 was also not followed with the correct move Qh5 !. Anyways, great video, thanks :)
very nice game. Scary how good some players are at 12 years old...
Proud of Georgian Grandmaster!
wow 12 years old.
Good video, Roman. Always a good one. Good idea: Not to sacrifice pawns until development is complete. That is the kind of teaching that is valuable and sticks with you until the time it becomes suddenly useful. Thanks again.

The young and talented Daniel Gurevich did something worthy of a video from the Dzindzinator himself! What exactly was that? You will have to watch to find out, but let's just say that although the perfect follow up was not applied, the idea itself was original, intuitively correct, and exciting! Kudos to the youngster, and kudos to Dzindzi for making yet another day in our "chess obsessed lives" an enjoyable one...

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!
