finally a king with a set of balls
thank again Grandmaster
I thought Petrosian told you not to play both c5 and e5 in KID!
nice video, thank you.
EXCELLENT PLAY MELIK
My notes from this video:
what a stunning conception,a game of true beauty
his king was on steroids.
one day ill try that :)
good vid, im trying to learn as uch about the kings indian as possible.
but ths game was...different.
Black's e4 push towards the beginning was pretty cool.
I like the idea of controlling the space by moving up the king to f5, when it seems unexpected and risky move some how...overall good game.
Haha his King! Talk about breaking the 'rules'!
Lots of fireworks...Nice explanation of what was going through your mind. Key strategical and tactical issues surfaced nicely. King on f5 blockading...I am not sure whose King was safe!! . This one was wild and entertaining game. One request for you...could you show us one of your close games where key squares were important to watch and game developed slowly but ultimately breakthrough was achieved. Even if it takes two part lecture, show us what was going through your mind. Many thanks.
awesum video!! (y)
Dynamic Thinking--How could you describe it better than that!
Nimzovitch would love Kf5!, a blocading idea with the king!
Nice vid, thanks for that.
Hi, about Black's f5 pawn and light squared bishop. Could you have played 1...f5 pawn to f4 instead of Nd7? With the intent of opening g-file.
I like the fact that you used one of your games, so we could see how you made decisions.
