Reviewed by John Elburg

Grandmaster Roman Dzindzichashvili explains in a small 90 minutes the secrets of the Burn- Morozevich Variation that runs with
the moves 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 dxe4 5.Nxe4 Be7 6.Bxf6 gxf6.
The Rybka team from ChessOnDVD.com runs under the companionship of Larry Kaufman,who by the way wrote not so long ago a interesting article on this line
in the New in Chess Year books.
The material is build-up in the following sections: Mainline,two heavy loaded  games  and a well explained conclusion.
Roman Dzindzichashvili does not work to much with references to the games but the evaluated material from him is certainly
more than enough to get started with the move 6…gxf6!?
Recapturing with the pawn on f6 leads to a more dynamic game but he must not forget his king's pawns.
When I compare this DVd with the analyses from Lev Psakhis in his book the French Defence,Steinitz,Classical  and other systems, Batsford
2004 than I only can say go for this DVD from Dzindzichashvili!
Because the instructive will help you to play and understand the Morozevich Variation in a much  easier  way of understanding!
Conclusion: Nice work to get started with the Burn/Morozevich Variation!
