GM Victor Mikhalevski shows you the third excellent game from this year’s Biel Chess Festival.
How often do you get to jump into the mind of a GM on the top of his game?
GM Mikhalevski goes over each move in this interesting game that helped him finish an outstanding second-place in the master tournament.
English Opening players are in for a real treat in this one. | Watch video
GM Melik Khachiyan shows you how he began his planning even before the game began. Respectful of his opponent's calculation abilities, the grandmaster chooses a quiet line and gains the edge when his opponent releases the tension. Often this means giving up something, and the video will show you the strength of White's lone center pawn. Khachiyan's freedom of movement and extra space spell doom for Black. Watch and see the simplicity of a top GM! | Watch video
It's the Benjamin Button of chess videos! Every chess player occasionally needs to go in reverse, and IM Keaton Kiewra shows you three examples why. The first is his oversight, which causes him to immediately resign. The second is a beautiful idea by a frequent Chess.com contributor. The third was missed by both players. How many of the trio did you find? If you found all three, you get an unofficial Chess.com puzzle norm, and perhaps you should live your life backward. | Watch video
Today GM Khachiyan takes a page out of an old book to bring us a lesson on practical defense! He continues a series he started over a year ago on Chess.com with a fresh installment. Melik highlights for us the importance of being both positionally and tactically precise, and when his opponent misses a chance to put him away (strong Knight on d6 allows for a brilliant Rook move) -- Melik slowly works his way back to a winning position. | Watch video
