Ah, to remember the days when one was "almost not even thirteen years old." Crazy times.
i can c y roman is a grandmaster and im not!
This is absolutely classic I'm actually amazed!
Roman, incredible your positional evaluation on the second game of this very instructive video, many thanks for such a good material.
i like that final decoy
very nice! reminds us to think that going backwards maybe sometimes necessary. great instuctor!
This is very instructional!great one!
anyone know where I can find a pgn for this game?
That was great! Thanks Roman. The first game was so funny and amazing. It really shows how you should consider all sorts of weird things.
may be an instructive one but not a great tactical combination. In both games he simply got lucky. Had he used this tactics against players like say Carlsen he wud simply be punished !
haha i laughed when u said ur biship would b very powerful.
...im not laughing anymore.
combinations improvised and creative!
That wasn't even a combination! A combination is when you find a forced series of moves to gain an advantage. This was just an opponent making poor moves, where the best responses happened to be retreating your pieces. I can't believe Kasparov didn't laugh when you showed him this "amazing combination" that would have resulted in your disadvantage had your opponent made better moves!
"Very super powerfull Bishop" kkkkkkkkkk
Wow, unusual games! In the second one, though, I noticed that when you said,"the knight takes the pawn, and will take the bishop" the bishop could move yo a2,no?
Don't complain about the video unless you actually see all of it!
too much talking for a demo, if you are not a member, it's useless.
it was good
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
Learning the rules is one thing, learning when to break them is another thing entirely. GM Roman Dzindzichashvilli offers Chess.com “the most interesting game I have ever played in my life.” From 1957, Roman offers an advanced, awkward but ultimately game winning combination. The second game in this video offers another bizarre combination in a must win situation which illustrates very clearly the art to be found on the chess board.

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!
