"Drinking and chess don't mix!!" LOL. Now cheesecake and drinking is another story.
Two great games.. Thanks.
on the other hand, drinking never goes good with chess. Yeah ask Tal about that ;)
Great games and good commentary, instructive without getting bogged down in tons of complex variations.
FUN FACT: Geller had + records vs 4 World Champions: Botvinnik, Smyslov, Petrosian and Fischer and an = record vs Tal. Not bad!
Yeah definately a "wow" game for sure!! Amazing tactics!!
wish i hadnt seen the video now i dream all night about that new york cheesecakes
Simply put ... Amazing!! Thank you so much for sharing about Efim Geller ... you know growing up here in rural American in the 70's and 80's when I started playing ... back then we didn't have access to know about some of the great Russian / Soviet players like Geller so this really helps to appreciate some of the chess geniuses out there like Geller that we didn't have access to a lot of their games. This video has motivated me to go back and look up in the databases Efim Geller's games ... this will be a new project to learn from him. His style of play is so great!
What a great game! Thankyou Roman for your wonderful videos.
This is the most inappropriate chess video you ever made! Congratulations!!
I was allways a fan of him (Geller), I watched him playing in Dortmund in the 90's.
I always look for Roman's videos.................really complete and well maked!! Thanks, Geller was amazing!!!!
exzakto: link to the second game: http://www.chess.com/games/view.html?id=131085
I agree with Geller. New York cheesecake is delicious.
Can anyone provide a link for the pgn of the second geller game he showed? That attack was the most viscous and beautiful I've ever seen.
Your break down of Geller's active play was great to watch and listen to.
I could watch Roman's videos all day. Best storyteller in the business. Thanks for the Geller tribute. I'll definitely be looking at more of his games.
Thank you, GM Roman!

ANY one who view ths video pls post on youtube
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
You will have to watch this video to find out what the great "love" of Efim Geller's life was, but let's just say that the answer may surprise you... Today Grandmaster Dzindzichashvili continues with the highly entertaining and critically acclaimed Greatest Chess Minds video series. The creative genius of Geller is on display, and though his technique might have lacked some "Karpov" at times, his approach was as original as anyone to have ever played the 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!
