Thanks Roman - loved this vid! That's the hardest I've laughed for a while. A good chess lesson to boot! :)
very entertaining, i think this was staged so that we could all have a good laugh. On a serious note though, very instructive.
This game was very.....very.............................................................................instructive!
Yeah, this was pretty funny. He said Black's best move was played when he resigned - lol!
"God forbid they would play d6 or b6. Apparently this is not in their plans. This is a total waste of time playing d6 because it develops pieces. And as we know black does not want any pieces to be developed."
Hahahaha awesome =)
I just started watching your videos and they are very informative while being very funny at times.
This video has completely made my day!! Roman you are a legend, very instructive analysis on the blunders of chess development!!
GM roman maybe u can tell us the time limits for these games...people play different with time running out
roman is epic!
hahahahahahahahaha I love this analysis..I've been laughing since. Thanks Roman
Absolutely legendary video. Tha part where he refuses to comment on the black moves anymore was hilarious!
Fantastic video, so instructive and these things are not obvious to us. Made this diamond membership totally worth it!
Black made the only correct move they made throughout the game, they resigned. Lol
@Ladya79, You mean you missed the part about the pepperoni? That was a classic!
Two pepperoni's are playing a game of chess. One pepperoni askes the other "What time is it?" and the other pepperoni says "Time for you to get a watch."
I wish I could see all 28 minutes of glory and guffaw-inducing gibes from the Grandmaster, but I'm groke - er, broke. *sigh* Please post more of his jokes! xD
The will go down as one of chess.com classic videos.
HILAROUS commentary. Great stuff Roman, you've outdone yourself we need more videos like this . Very instructive!
This was very instructive, very funny, and goes right along with IM Pruess' series on development I've been watching from the video guide.
A hilarious commentary. "This is not chess. This is abomination of chessboard." I am sure some of my games would receive equal treatment. But I hope to be one of the smarter ones and learn from someone else's mistakes. Thanks for the very instructive--and funny-- video.
You crack me up Dzindzi.
dat last name
"God forbid he play ...d6" I loved that! Thank You Roman!
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
GM Dzindzichashvili sifts through his mailbox to find a game where he totally disapproves of black's play for one simple reason - he forgot to develop half of his pieces. The grandmaster says the more brutal the game, the more instructive the lesson, thus making this example one of the most incisive games on the topic. Don't get caught in the trap of thinking you can ever forget the basics!

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!
