Roman's Lab

Desiderata

Has anyone used Roman Dzindzichashvili DVD's? If so did you enjoy them? If not would you be interested in seeing them.  I have the whole of 36 or 40 volumes from the 2005 sereis of Roman's Lab. Came into money and swaped the all up at once but I have only watched about 5 and the rest are plastic sealed still. Maybe this is why my rating is still so low. Anyone have any opionions on this Roman's Lab sereis. Good and Bad

They are OK for low rated players, and even medium rated ones might benefit from them. However nothing in them should be taken for granted- analytical holes abound, and all "annoying" continuations are deliberately ignored/ omitted. I do not know if this odd recipe is a speciality of Dzindzi or his collaborators , but it does not taste good to me.

So, better concentrate at the first place to his DVD's that are NOT about some opening, but rather his middlegame/ strategy/ endgame ones- they are certainly quite good value for their money. Dzindzi is still a strong player, and as such his sayings do have a certain value. It's just his opening DVD's that are, errr, let's say "lazy".

I don't want to spam but I want to sell them on eBay. I have every issues and only 5 dvd's are open and all the rest are still sealed. Anyone interested.

Dzindzi is funny and was at one time a top player. his opening stuff is well I agree with Pfren. The other stuff he has is very interesting as would be watching GM explain a position. it is probably aimmed at class players. I think that after about 1800 they start to lose their benefit.

Desiderata

I agree 100% even though I'm not an 1800 rated player. I just feel I can learn more from books. Anyway...I have 46 dvds with only 5 to 7 opened, the rest are sealed. Probably going to be putting them on eBay soon.

They are available on YouTube, so you can watch them and decide for yourself.

Do you have a computerized chess program?  If not download StockFish and enter your position, it is free.

The Big Ego Bear speaks from his Mom's basement in the deep woods of the North...! He probably has half the Forum banned by now due to his childish behavior..! What a worthless POS IMO.

It might be called sharing in a Sheet-hole country like Pakistan, but in the first world it is called stealing!
