I enjoyed this because it's refreshing to see engine evaluations put to the test and the fact their numbers aren't always correct. Human intuition can be more powerful!
If black plays Rd8, white can play Be3--breaking the pin and defending the queen. Black could capture the queen with Rxd4; white would play Bxd4. Black would win the exchange with a queen for a rook, but not quite a full rook up.
whoops Roman at 19:42 you suggest Rxc2 but Ithink Rd8 wins the game immediately (a full rook). Nevertheless a great video!
That was a really great explaination. Thanks!
the calculation video is and was the life saver for the game today. the g square of the knght using the bishop is the best.. i think for some seeing this move would help and probably use the calculated move for a gain in the car and perhaps a taken rook. i have used the rook lately and won and lost. i preform the evil candian rock team using prolterqust or intemidation for a a purpose i think a possible lost would and could happen.. i like reading the current advice according to the so call candian rocker suzey. she played a meany game and always broke the rook opening..!!!! great game
Below is the position from 19:42. The queen on d4 is pinned by the queen on b6 to the white king and so Rd8 cannot be captured...
Very interesting lecture. It explains a lot about computer evaluations.
good lecture about the sisian and thinking that the bishop and knight are the way to go, but perhaps more of pawn play may benifit the bishop perhaps if looking to the center. the knights are useful but keeping a couple of pawns in the center with some movement would work and more than moving the knight to either side. thanks mike
Great lecture, as usual another excellent video from GM Roman! In the position at 19:42 though, instead of black playing Rxc2, I think Rd8 is just winning. Either way, thanks again for the lectures!
By the way, after 12.Ne2, my Houdini 1.5 x64 in deep 22 is saying only 0.15 for White, not 0.50.
Another try for White is 12.Ne2 Bg4 13.Bg5, with the idea of not playing weakening move f3. Even if I'm not sure it would change much evaluation of the position.
whoa wasted five moves to take that bishop
Dear Roman, why are you so awesome?
or for example
Many question not clear , the Big question of chess is how to evaluate
how to evaluate this is the big question of chess
mr romain we try to know how to estimate because the problem is on some position like that this on eof hard position how you evaluate
or for example trying to draw or i do kon really
oh master guru you rock,what an inspiration,intuition over engines,ha

Be honest - do you sometimes check the computer's evaluation before doing your own? Most of us are guilty of this at least occasionally. GM Dzindzichashvili warns you not to always trust small pluses and minuses given by machines. Here he compresses many hours of original analysis into 20 minutes, showing you how the algorithms might need a tweak, and why processors should be augmented with human insight for proper evaluation of positions.

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!
