    Listening to Roman talk about how stupid the players are is a big part of the reason I watch these videos. It's absolutely hilarious.

    GnomeChompski: with e3 you are protecting pawn while developing and making usefull moves, b3 is completely pointless and doesnt help development at all...

    White player's brain appears burnt-out

    white was kind of like someone who wandered up to chess board for first time ever and someone lies to them, misinforms them, and tells them that the goal of game is to try to put your pieces in pretty pattern on board.

    Someone explain to me why that b3 move by white is so bad. I am quite new to chess and am still trying to figure out. It looked like a decent move to me because b3 backed up his center pawn (his "plan" would be to develop because its still the opening game phase) Unless chess theory for the Grunfeld aims for a different purpose someone please explain it to me, thanks.

    GReat video.. I love the fact that he uses small rated players games, because those are the moves that we make so much as low rated players. I use (cough) a6 and h6 all the time, to stop the "chances" of an attack. OKOK I know ! 

    GM Roman has always been interesting to listen to for me, since years ago on ICC, as a commentator.  He was hilarious then also! What is better, however, is that his instructions are so simple and straight forward.

    Thanks, alot GM Roman D. !

    How does one submit a game for Member Analysis?

  • 5 years ago


    in my opinion, in the opening, u don't need to exactly "have a plan" By the word "plan" my meaning is that the player is trying to accomplish something concrete, based on 1.The opponent's weaknesses 2.Their superiority on a certain area 3.A certain goal that they have in mind. I definitely don't think this is what should be done in an opening. I think what Dzindzi means is that the pieces must be developed harmoniously, in response to the opponents development, as well as purposefully, so that in the middle game they can be useful togerther.  Furthermore, dont drop material without at least some compensation
