Reversing of Well Established Evaluations of Giuoco Piano and 2 Knights Defense, is presented by Grandmaster Roman Dzindzichashvili as a part of his Roman and Rybka, Perfecting the Opening series.
Giuoco Piano and 2 Knights Defense are probably the best and most explored openings in chess theory. Not much has changed in these openings in the past 30-40 years.
With the help of Rybka, Roman injects new life into these ancient openings. He demonstrates original approach and understanding of initiative and sacrifice of a Pawn.
In the first case, White sacrifices a Pawn that was never taken seriously and proves to get more than sufficient compensation. In the second case, taking a Pawn that was always known as a bad idea and proving that White has an advantage!
This interesting and controversial DVD is based on deep analysis by Rybka and Roman. Very innovative!
