Definately impressive win for sure! It's always nice to see the knight outplay a bishop in the endgame :)
Thanks alot, awesome vid!
this shows a brilliant brain that thinks in advance big time!
So what is the drawing plan for black?
Really instructive video! I could never have guessed white could win that endgame!
good work,keep it up
Definitely brilliant ! I really apreciated the enlightning comments about the decoying role of the h pawn, cos I was really focusing on how to promote this pawn. Many thanks, Roman !
Wonderful explanation of a great end game. Thanks, Roman.
Beautiful Roman - thank you!
Very interesting game, and further evidence - if we needed it - that chess engines sometimes struggle to evaluate endgames.
Thank you very much GM Roman Dizindzichashvili
Nice win, Roman.

In today's video, GM Roman Dzindzichashvili proves that even Rybka can mis-evaluate an endgame! In an exploration of one of his older games, Dzindzi brilliantly sacrifices a pawn to transition into a favorable knight vs. bishop endgame. What does this mean? Perhaps there are games when a Grandmaster's positional understanding can still "outweigh" a computer's millions of moves of calculation!

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!
