Kibitzer's Corner
May-17-05  ksadler: A beautiful tactic by Black in order to finish off the game! Great use of the pin.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Peligroso Patzer: What a beautiful concluding combination (61. … Rh1+ 62. Kxh1 Nxg3+ 63. [any K move] Nxh5, … to include the moves White did not require Dzindzi to demonstrate at the board)!! It combines several tactical motifs (decoy, pin and fork – and even skewer [X-ray], which forbids White seriously to consider declining the sacrifice at move 61), all in a tremendously aesthetically appealing way.
Dec-31-06  Bobby A: Vicious combo! could this be a game of the day?
Oct-29-07  Granny O Doul: Why not ...Rd6 on 34 idea 35 ed Ng3+?
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <Granny O Doul> Great pick-up! 34 ... Rxd6! wins a piece due to 35. exd6 Ng3+! mating or 35. h3 Qc6 protecting the Ba6 while avoiding 36. Rd1.

Still the concluding combination is quite beautiful. =)

Feb-27-11  Llawdogg: 61 ... Rh1+!! is spectacular!
Jun-25-12  LoveThatJoker: Excellent game from GM Dzindzichashvili!

  profK: Doesn't white have the better of this for most of the game? Certainly till about move 40 ?
Jun-25-12  King Sacrificer: Rh1 looks like the killer through ball from Xavi after hypnotizing the opponent with 60 successful short passes.
Sep-15-14  Ke2: A little unusual variation on the N fork tactic with the pin on the R.
Oct-16-14  master of defence: Position after 61.g6:

Notice if it were White to move again, he would have a mate in 4 with 62.Qh7+ Kf8 63.Qh8+ Ke7 64.Bh4+ Nxh4(64...Kd7 65.Qd8#) 65.Rf7#.

But anyway, great finish by Dzindzichasvili. 61...Rh1+ 62.Kxh1(Otherwise 62...Rxh5) Nxg3+ and 63...Nxh5. Too bad White's rook gets pinned there...

Dec-18-15  Mating Net: One of the best two movers. You have to FORCE your opponent into unfavorable piece alignments. 61...Rh1+ certainly does.
