g4 could possibly be played by someone who just learned to move the pieces several hours ago. but I don't think that likely at all. throwing material in the air like that because of some other compensational factors is not something someone who just learned how to move pieces will be doing. they wouldn't play g4 there, they would likely play something like nc3. 9 of 10 times Nc3 there and not g4.
haha nice one BrianWall
A Dzindi video a day keeps the checkmate away.
since watching Dzindzi's videoes i have improved my games. during matches I comment like Dzindzi (with similar accent) bad moves from my opponents.
Thanks for your lectures.
can't mate with a only a knight and king
Thank you for making this series of videos! I've just watched the first (and only, at the moment) four of them. These are amazing combinations!
" a very unusual idea is almost there in every of your game, it is up to you to look it good or bad " i will remember your quote Mr. Roman, thank you!
very nice video ... what a wonderful puzzle that was ... truly amazing artisic work! And the game example ... inspiring! I don't think I would ever spend 40 mins on that position but it paid off! Lesson learned. The background is that you must have sensed something out of place for black and then you had to find the key and you did.
I am in the process of making a puzzle book I have been for some time... I love composing "artificial" positions that the solution is beautiful - here are some links to my latest creations (feedback welcome )
I find after going through a period of creativity that my rating rises quicker than normal, this will obviously be because of pattern recognision and composing bizarre and unique situations!
Brilliant topic and great lecture Roman!
for being "very well known position" I can't find any games (including dzindi's) for position at 9:27 on chessgames.com
dzindi does that a lot, just ignore it.
at 5:04 he sais queen d3 but puts it on e4 ?
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
A blast from the past! Today Roman brings us a brand new installment to one of his first, very popular video series here on Chess.com! Why is it useful to spend time working on compositions? Well, besides the obvious benefits of entertainment and art, GM Dzindzichashvili proves that "obscure" and "out of the box thinking" can be very useful in one's own games... 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!
