This video elucidates some very deep and important chess concepts. Incredibly useful and instructive. One of Roman's best videos.
Very instructive, great practical advice too I always enjoy your analysis Roman!
yeah Roman is a seriously good instructor, I've branched out to a few others on chess.com to get some other perspectives and yet I still have to say Roman is #1
Other video instructors are good (some very good), but Roman is the best.
I was also wondering about Re2 but I think the problem is Re2 Rxe2 Qxe2 and then Re8, giving black the only open file and the better position
I also wonder what is wrong with Re2.
After Qb5 Qf3 Kg7 why not Re2?
The idea of development of pieces followed by a plan is brilliant. i appreciated the honesty of the gm re. many times not having a plan, and then finding one after said development. it is going to be helpful for future chess combat. many thanks to Roman.
this was a very helpful video. I have feeling a learned something new from it, some of basic principles, that can be applied in any game. As TetsuoShima said, very good for learning.
Nice video (again), Roman. Thanks!
i agree with jbades, can those two comments be deleted? it draws attention away from the video needlessly.
is there a mod that can delete chess_oliver's comments?
that was a really good video, i hope you analyse more games of 2000 players. I find this one the best video for learning. Geller, Stein and so on was nice, but for learning purpose i find this game better.
also wtf is that @chess_oliver
hahaha I love at 21:22 when dzindi sarcasticly says "here we're gonna see the epic maneuver"
Why does every single video say "Error playing media: File could not be played"?
Thanks for one of the most instructive lessons I have seen here, among many other fine ones. I hope you will review a lot more games like this.
Instead of Be6 wouldn't Bg4 be better for black ? To force a weakness on whites king side

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!
