- Two-time U.S. champion Grandmaster Roman Dzindzichashvili was born in Tbilisi, Georgia. He won the Junior Championship of the Soviet Union in 1962 and the University Championships in 1966 and 1968. In 1970, he was awarded the title of International Master by FIDE.
He left the U.S.S.R. in 1976 for Israel and earned the Grandmaster title in 1977. In 1979, Dzindzichashvili settled in the United States, and he won the Lone Pine tournament the next year. He led the U.S.team at the Chess Olympiad in 1984.
One of his best career performances was first place at the 53rd Hastings Chess Festival in 1977/1978. He scored 10½ out of 14 points, a full point ahead of former World Champion Tigran Petrosian. He had a cameo in the 1993 film Searching for Bobby Fischer.
Prominent students include GM Eugene Perelshteyn and IM Yaacov Norowitz.
Roman has lectured at the Boylston in the past, and we are honored to welcome him back to help us celebrate our Centennial!
