Thank you Grandmaster.
No; it's not low quality. It reminds me of Casablanca. It was a chess lesson for White! delightful.
excellent series and examples. your vids are my favorites, very logical presentation and ideas.
Hello dear GM Melik and thank you for your great series !
I am planning to make it the basis of my black repertoire against e4.
Since you recommend 2...Nc6 as a good positional line, what is your recommendation against the move 3.Bb5 ?
I'm talking about 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5
GM Perelshteyn prefers to play 2...Bg7 because he doesn't want to allow this move.
Thanks again for the series !
Brilliant end to an awesome series!!
Why not Qa5+? Instead of a6 i mean.
Great series! watched all of the videos - thanks much!
it would be nice if I could view it full for free :)
I do like it! Thank you for your explanation in all the installments.

In the final installment to this series, GM Khachiyan gives his recommendation for how black should deal with the obscure Bishop to b5 development against the Hybrid Accelerated Dragon. He then provides a general summary of why, and what type of players should look to add the Accelerated Dragon to their repertoire. Of course, the final game reviewed is one from the best Accelerated Dragon player in the country: Fellow video author GM Perepshteyn!
