|Jul-10-10|| ||rapidcitychess: <MaxxLange> Where I live, there is a 111 on the top 200 list. :(|
|Sep-09-10|| ||elohah: Roman Dzindzicashvili.|
|Mar-20-11|| ||jbtigerwolf: I can't find any example of his Dzindzi-Indian defense anywhere.|
|Jul-23-11|| ||KingsExecutor: Does anyone know how to contact Roman? please no weak suggestions, only facts please :)|
|Aug-05-11|| ||BobCrisp: <It is rumoured that a very large grandmaster, with a very large name, has moved from the Soviet Union to Israel, Germany, Holland and the USA in turn leaving unrepaid borrowings or debts behind him in each of these countries totalling some tens of thousands of pounds and is now being sought by the New York police.>|
<CHESS>, April-May 1981.
Hmmm, any thoughts on who this might be?
|Aug-05-11|| ||Strongest Force: When Roman became a friend I had to hear him badmouth two of my other friends: Fred Waitzkin and Max Dlugy.|
|Aug-05-11|| ||Fusilli: <Bob Crisp> <Strongest Force> Sounds like one more nice, ethically exemplary, socially well-adjusted grandmaster.|
|Aug-05-11|| ||BobCrisp: Did he ever ask for a loan?|
|Aug-05-11|| ||BobCrisp: <Roman>'s picture is a cross between <Eric Cantona>, <George Best> and <Bob Hoskins>.|
|May-05-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Happy Birthday, GM (and awesome Chess Teacher) Dzindzichashvili!|
|Jun-25-12|| ||rogl: I first heard about Dzindzi around 1995 when Judit Polgar made her first appearance on ICS(before it became I$$). They played a 5 minutes blitz where Judit tried a Benkö gambit and, to my big surprise, lost. Any fellow chessgamer following that game?|
|Jul-16-12|| ||offramp: Does anyone else think it's odd that a Jewish Mum & Dad would call their son Roman?|
I mean, what have the Romans ever done for us?
There's Roman Polanski & Roman Abramovich as well - The Dzinn is not alone.

|Feb-16-13|| ||tzar: I dont know what sort of finantial problems did Roman had or left behind but as a chess teacher he is great....maybe he needed money for his videos in youtube...it was then for a good cause!|
|Apr-13-13|| ||Conrad93: <The aqueduct?>
Someone has been watching Monty Python...
|May-02-14|| ||offramp: I recently bought some Amontillado sherry. I bought it entirley owing to the short story by Edgar Poe. In the 1900s it was probably very expensive, but I bought some at Sainsbury's for less than £7. |
Anyway, while I was looking up Amontillado I also strayed across a wikipedia article about Georgian wine.
To my surprise Georgian wine "[has] been traced back by archeology to at least 6000 BC..."
So I am now on the lookout for Tsinandali wine, a famous Georgian wine... Imagine drinking a drink that <might> taste almost the same as the same drink 7,000 to 8,000 years ago!

Surprising indeed. Everyone knows that the world is only 6,000 years old!
|May-30-14|| ||Petrosianic: <Jim Bartle: "I mean, what have the Romans ever done for us?">|
How about the roads?
|May-30-14|| ||perfidious: Playing Dzindhi at blitz was an experience I shall not soon forget.|
We met in one of the Tuesday night events at Harvard which were a staple in the 1980s and which attracted all sorts of strong masters. One would have thought Dzin possessed five hours on his clock rather than five minutes during play, such was his apparent nonchalance. Our game saw Dzin employ a London System vs a KID setup; do not recall much else except getting ground down in the middlegame.

How could our anchestors invent the wheel without drinking wine? First things first.
How about the roads?>
panem et circenses?
|May-30-14|| ||perfidious: <HMM: As I've heard it, he was sort of an unlucky gambler, losing at card and dice games, and going into the hole at casinos....>|
There is unlucky--then there is the player who lacks skill. What Dzin did the only time we met at the chessboard, I would surely repay at the poker table, with interest.
<MichAdams: In less enlightened times, such behaviour might have sparked off a pogrom.>
Only to be expected from another of <BobCrisp>'s lovely incarnations.
|May-30-14|| ||FSR: <perfidious> Yes, I watched Dzindzi crush Norbert Leopoldi, a local expert/master who once played Fischer in a tournament game, at 5-1 time odds. Astonishing. Similarly, Christiansen played and won a bullet (1-minute) online game during a lecture here. He was explaining his thought processes as he went along; somehow one minute seemed like all the time in the world in his hands. He also won B+N v. K at 5 minutes - 30 seconds, though I think he only used about 15 of them.|
|Oct-06-14|| ||AdolfoAugusto: Does someone know where is Dzinzi located? He was here (south Texas) for a couple of years. A ph number or email? Does he still provide instruction?|
|Oct-06-14|| ||Strongest Force: AA Roman and family lead a nomadic business life.|
|Oct-06-14|| ||Howard: The website ChessCafe remarked some time back that Roman apparently has a way of dodging bill collectors.|
