Evidently 'I. Krush' didn't live up to her name in this game.Understandable I suppose though...Irena's kind of a hard name to live up to.
great game, great analysis, thank you !! (please keep em coming)
we love you roman!! you re good mate
This is a good follow-up to the first video.
Definately a great game!
what a nice game........
ahm......... hope more videos
Another enjoyable and instructive video by Dzindzi.
I think that Dzindzi at 21:30 may have overlooked that White was playing to win, not just save the game. Instead of 1. a5 as played, White could have forced an easy draw with 1. Qa7+. Black can't interpose 1... Rb7 because 2. Qxb7+ Kxb7 3. Nc5+ forks and wins the endgame. And 1... Kc6 2. Qa8+ Kd6 3. Qd8+ just repeats the position.
I know Danny would have never exchanged the bishop for the knight, even if it creates a small weakness for black. He loves the bishop pair, maybe too much. He has admitted it.
thanks for the video
its very educative... thanks a lot!
Thank you, it was helpful.
Very nice video. Helpful analysis!
I vote for VLMJ's idea
life i like a chess game..,coz if you make a rong move its dificult to set it back.lead your life paitiently and carefuly.
As always, great teaching, Roman. By the way, would you possibly teach a lesson or two on playing for a draw, illustrating as you do, how one can recognize a draw situation and play for it, perhaps commenting also on perpetual checks: how to recognize those situations and play for them?
Nice to see Roman analyzing one of Danny's recent games. I saw it during the Spice Cup, but never understood it before. Very nice.
Nice game and well analyzed. Thanks!
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
This weekend Roman not only gives us a sequel to his "Easy System vs Caro" video, but he also provides excellent commentary to a game between Chess.com's own IM Daniel Rensch and IM Irinia Krush from the SPICE Cup in November 2010. For players looking to increase their knowledge of Dzindzi's "special recipe against the Caro" variation, you will not be disappointed. Everyone else can enjoy the excitement of this high level and very imbalanced chess game.

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!
