it's actually very useful to hear his analysis of these types of games where the players obviously aren't serious chess players, have no idea what they are doing and are more or less experimenting/researching along the lines of "hmmmm wonder what happens if I do this"
Help! I could not stop laughing but now the video is over and I still can't stop.
Great sense of humor as always, however Dzindzi's videos have increased sharply my ability to make judgement of my opponents bad moves. My tournament level has considerably improved sinse watching Dzindzi's videos.
Ps probably black has emigrated following Dzindzi's comments! lol
For the people that are crying about this video... it's rated as beginner/intermediate.
Realize that not everyone that is a paying member of this site is some chess god. If you're someone who is beyond this video, watch a different video... it's that simple.
Had to watch this one again - opening principles are very important and I took your advice... yesterday I played a game for Didcot 1 (I usually play for Didcot 2) - I was basically a lowly substitute but instead of "playing the book" I chose a different strategy against a higher-rated opponent and "played the position" - the link to the game is here -
Please feel free to "Member Analysis" my game and publicly scrutinize me - I would love a GrandMaster to analyze my game!! I have annotated the game to my current thought processes at the time of playing - this game was not run through Houdini until I posted the blog
i love the name of this video, the video really deserves the name
Great video.exposing common errors we make.thanks
I really enjoyed this video.. very funny. Make more video's like this . It makes it personal when people get made fun of and it helps drive home the point..
I couldn't breathe through half this moving. Absolutely hilarious!
Great way to start the day...
Great teaching veido.....also why you should not be drinking when playing chess!!!
Please tell more chess stories and more games like this...and just a little bit longer
Be Blessed...and thanks
For people who, unlike me, do NOT think it's a waste of time for Dzindzi (rather than some lesser chess.com video presenter) to give this lecture--I have a question for you guys. Would it be good if GM Dzindzi analyzed even WORSE games than this? Let's have GM Dzindzi analyze my 8 year old nephew's game against his 6 year old sister, who just started playing a few months ago. Why not?
I'll tell you why not--because it would be a waste of his time. I'm not saying chess.com should not have 'beginner' level videos, but, c'mon. you have to draw the line somewhere between those kinds of topics where GM Dzindzin can give us our money's worth and those kinds of videos that don't. This video does not, because for 1/10th the price chess.com pays GM Dzindzi (however much that is), you could get any old mere 'master' or even 'expert' to analyze the above game for a beginning-level player.
But *only* GM Dzindzi and a small handful of chess teachers in the world can give us insightful, deep analysis on a under-rated opening, or Rybka-supported novelty, or deep positional examination of complex but common middle game situations.
So think about that--do you really want to pay for a PhD in Physics to teach multiplication? Anybody can do that. IF you have the PhD in physics, let's have him explain space-time curvature, worm-holes or something more interesting than multiplication.
RUBBISH GAME LOL
Nice video! I remembered when I played like that. This video made me feel good! Thank you!
Definately some huge errors from both players here, but we are all human afterall... I love the analysis though Roman it is always very instructive, I'd love to have my messy games scrutinized like this!
Roman is frikkin hilarious.
I disagree and think its good that pro analysis of GM's and IM's ocassionally visit the land of players who are "work in progress"......the thing is.....so many here witness the analysis of high level players......and believe they are better for it and can emulate in some small percentage....i think the truth is that too often it doesnt translate other than as witnessing an erudite entertainment. We can see and learn from the great masters but there are legions of players and fans who love the game and can benefit from a summary if not scathing review of the mistakes and flawed thinking that are common amongst us lower ranked...Roman, I hope it wasnt too painful....but, we do thank you for the insight and for tearing us apart.
Gotta love Romans mordant wit. Nice video. thx
I love Romans videos, but also wish he'd review more advanced games. You can get the second or third-tier chess instructors on here to analyze these games; get Roman to whatever Roman wants to do. It's pretty obvious Roman has no interest in analyzing such bad games (nor should he).

In today's Member Analysis video, one of our staff members puts himself on the line for the Dzindzinator to do his worst! And as you might expect, Roman holds nothing back in his critique of black's awkward (at best) opening play. However, once Shadow survives the first stage, his opponent slowly let's him back into the game. How does this back and forth game end? Watch and find out...

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!
