It would be nice if you would get some games with best play, because these moves you show are not the best. I would love some games with best play
Thank you Grandmaster.
I think if ...Qb4 a3 Qa5 then black has outpost for Knight on b3?
what if qb4 then white moves a3?
Respnce to a3 if moving queen to b4 on 16?
Good video. :)

Hey GM Khachiyan, this video does not show up on the list. I could only find it by linking up from the 3rd video.
by GM Melikset Khachiyan
Today Melik reviews another game from our "Accelerated Hero", only this time, our hero falls short... In the game Short-Tiviakov, 1998 -- GM Tiviakov chooses a slightly mediocre plan to find himself on the wrong side of a squeeze position. Learn from Sergey's mistakes, and remember to control the critical dark-squares and find "tricky" moves like Qb4 at the right time, and you will be fine!
