Great game and great video. Thanks!
Really enjoyed the game, he is quite a strong player! Very logical the whole way through, Im hoping I can do that in more of my games as well.
Very impressive play and instruction. I really liked the very first instinct to build "the wall" against the Bg2 fianchetto.
Very instructive, thank you.
g5 was amazing
Nice game. Can you post the PGN as well?
Great game--instructive commentary. Right to the point and very clear.

nice game for a young player
Good one. I liked the analysis.
pretty and illustrative game : )
a good student comes from a great teacher
i love meliks videos =]
This is an excellent game by your student. Maybe he played better than you do in this game. :D just kidding, i'm sure you're very proud of what your students accomplish!
he said uhhh way to many times

I think 27...Bf5 and then 28...h4 was proper for Black. But your student played a fantastic game. Bravo! Please do more videos like this one.
Loved this video, Melik...

Grandmaster Khachiyan begins a new series on the subject of game review. Here he analyzes a game played by one of his own students from a recent tournament in Southern California. What a game it was! From the positional accuracies of the opening, to the deep understanding of combining prophylactic thinking while still conducting a mating attack, the game was, in summary, absolutely beautiful...
