Great !! Looks like black shouldn't feel so save in Grunfeld anymore ;)
I really enjoyed this video. Thank you for sharing your hard work and insights! I thought the play from Svidler and Ivanchuk was the most interesting and creative of the entire Candidates Tourney. The two games you discuss are good examples.
Thank you Roman from sunny Mongolia
In the first game, why can't black capture with f pawn when white hxg3?
I just KNEW he was going to say "h4 is the correct move". It's like his (great!) video lecture on Pirc with 5. h3, where he presented h4 as a novelty as well. From the same author, same lecturing stile, hilarious!
Maybe Dzindzi should write a book about "prepare kingside attacks with h4 first with h3", like an analogy to the all-to-modern treatment of the Ruy Lopez where d3 comes first to secure the center and then break it up later on ;-)
I watched this a second time and it reminded me of the first impressions I had of Bobby Fischer's brilliance in that he always seemed to have analyzed one or more steps farther than his opponents and also seemingly "had been there before" in the resulting middlegame positions. Very pleasant.
Very nice. Thank you Roman.
I hope you'll do a video on Kramnik's grunfeld novelty in round 13 as well. Fireworks.
Outstanding! So interesting and relevant!
Wow! - Only Roman and Shirov show me this kind of amazing stuff in chess - I salute you both!
Incredibly valuable instruction!
That was great!!! =)
Thk you, Roman!
Thanks for taking the time to teach.
Thanks, another fine performance of the Stones' "dancing with Mr. D"
Yeah, GM Dzindzichashvili is a great tutor! Thanks, Roman!
thanks MR. Dzindzichashvili for this brilliant VID.

When the strongest players in the world come together for an elite tournament that will ultimately decide who has the right to challenge the world champion for his crown, holding back preparation and novelties is no longer an option! This tourney recipe is currently providing many "new opening treats" for all of us mere mortals to enjoy, and GM Dzindzichashvili is using it as a launching pad for his new video series on high level opening prep and novelties. Enjoy!

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!
