    NoRematch, thanks for the clarification. I'm new to all this and just learning, so i was surprised to spot what seems to be a slight mistake.

    Yes, MBorax, I suppose he should have said "leads to checkmate" since after Qe1+ Rxe1 Black has Rxe1 checkmate.

    at around 18:22 in this video GM seems to make a mistake, saying that the black Queen can go to e1 checkmate, but that's not correct because the white Rook is still on the back rank. nevertheless, it's a great lesson.

    Thanks for the great lecture GM Dzindzi!!

    @ IM pfren - Thank you for your analysis.  It is great.

    @ zuckzwang - Thanks for pointing out a useless fact, which is a matter of interpretation and semantics only.  I trust the GMs assessment, including his many years of study and playing compared to your ability to read a book.

    In the Qa5, 0-0-0, Kd7 variation, white's Rae1 is met by Qxe1+ followed by Rxe6.

    Thank you GM Dzindzichashvili for another great video. Can you filter the games of a regular book to only include the games of 2700 players to make it a power book?

  • 3 years ago


    You say that the move Kd7 is strong for white in the ... 0-0-0 variation, but instead of R×e8, what about Ra1 ?

    I should object about the value of ...h6 in the Qh5 variation. This move is not bad at all, factly it's the only way for Black to play for an advantage (at minimal risk).

    With best play,the game is equal- but white has to be very accurate to justify his pawn investment.

    I had the impression that this variation is just bad for Black (just like Dzindzi has claimed) until I found a game by GM Andreikin playing this as Black, and winning against an expert of this line (GM Savchenko).

    I have analysed this position at great depth, and I stand by my "equal" opinion (but easier to play as Black).

    8...Qd7 is fine for equality, but after 9.Nxe4 Be7 10.Bg5 0-0 11.Bxe7 Qxe7 12.Nxd4 Bd7 13.Nb3 (not mentioned in this video) the position is just dull equal. Actually this has been played in two recent ICCF games, both drawn shortly.
