Thank You :-)
Good examples of the two bishops coming alive. I would not have seen the potential in the these games so it was especially helpful. Thanks.
great video for an intermediate and an advanced chess player. and maybe even helps an expert.
info badly needed by us fish, thanks
This was a really instructive lesson for me because the positions with white that were shown in/just after the opening I reach very frequently in my own games... I have always understood that when you have the bishop pair you need to open the position, that knights are better in closed positions, and how to make your own bishops good and your opponents' bishops bad, but I never understood before about that you need to have a concrete plan in place to take advantage of the bishop pair before going for the neccessary exchanges. Just out of interest, do you have a DVD out on the theme of this series? Thanks
This is a great example of the strenght of the bishop pair.
Excellent video! The justification for trading must be strategical. This might be the most important middle game idea ... dynamic vs static play developed through which minors are traded.
Great video. thanks.
Waste of time... the video is incomplete.
waiting for your upcoming videos... best of luck

by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
Today Roman is on the Bishop's side! Following part 1 -- in which he highlighted "Pony Power" -- here Dzindzi brings us many examples of when and how the Bishop Pair is a dominate factor in the position. He talks about pawn structure, mobility, and dynamic play as well as he makes his way through several interesting positions. Enjoy!

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!
