Tried this in a RL master level Elo tournamant. Got a very good position out of the opening but squandered it all =( Disappointed with that, happy with the opening.
This lecture and the similar french defence system really filled in some big holes in my repitoir. Thanks for these
A practical system.
wow, im going to have to seriously think things over a bit more now! thank you for the video roman!
Ya this e6 move order cannot be repelled by such way...
But ...e6 allows stonewall only and precludes Legingard, or Ilyin-Genevsky
Sadly I am going to abandon Dutch.
Also, I have also seen similar lines like 2. Nc3 3. Bg5 and cannot find good answer for black.
i see this as a guico moller attack type of system it allows a good game against unaware dutch players but there is to much wiggle room for black to move around it not discounting roman's analysis or playing ablilty it is a very nice idea that i have not seen as a dutch player and would be handly defeated if i would have not watched this video
Great video. It's a good thing they didn't have chess.com in Alekhine's time, or he might have avoided the Dutch in that game against Bogolyubov!
I watched a few videos on how Black can have fun playing the Dutch Defense, but oh my...if I see the Dutch when I have the White pieces, I simply must go with Roman's system.
I like Roman's humor and wit, also a very instructional video, thanks.
You are a true legend. Your videos more than anybody else's always seem to stick in my mind for a very long time. You do a very good job of driving through key points that you are trying to stress.
good opening but i think it use only in fast gaming ^^
I watch twice this video because I play Bg5 and I'm learning a lot with it. I've tried yet h4 and win quickly but it's another story with e6 and close game. May be you can go thoroughly into the deep strategic thoughts of it in another good video of your own. As well there's some detail that can escape to a lower player than you're. For instance if they play g6 right away you play h4 but if they play before cf6 and afterwards g6 then you don't play h4 but take the cf6. Nevertheless I enjoy your videos and this in particular.
Most often when I play the Dutch I usually open with 1. ...e6
This way, i don't commit myself, and this was really in response to the very annoying line 1. d4 f5 2. Bg5 which I could not find a response to without going into the Leningrad, which is terrible and the victim of plenty of thrashings in this video.
If 2. c4 I will be able to play f5 without any qualms.
(23:36) "If you don't see it, get help" lol
This video is full of fantastic ideas. I was very excited by the information and all the ideas from the various positions. Lots of information packed in this lesson. This guy is awesome...
Learned a lot, thanks.
its wonderfull isugesst you watch it
I haven't watched the video, but by downloading the PGN and looking at the line, I can say that having tried this before and given up on it this is one of those things that looks great on paper and when you have Fritz in front of you but is actually impossible to pull off in practice. Black has so many different defensive options and white has to prove his sacrifice through perfect moves. The one that convinced me to quit it was when I played it against my friend and he just took a king walk to a6 after playing a5-b6.
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
After you watch this video, you'll never have to worry about the Dutch again. GM Dzindzichashvili explained to me: against some openings, it is ok to get a playable position; but the Dutch goes against principles. Against openings like that, you should get a serious advantage. He also promises that this system is easy to learn and remember.

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!
