    My notes from this video:

    • when you what to play sharp (for complication or a wild game), spend you time on the side that you are attacking
    • I like the e4 move to protect the hanging N f/b Qe8 pinning B and protecting N
    • wild play requires imagination and more concrete thinking and less positional play
    • like how Melikset Khachiyan plays 3 moves before recapturing the N on g7
    • Amazing how Melikset Khachiyan ignores the N threat to R to find Ne4 threatening mate
    • Again Melikset Khachiyan ignore the N threat to R (also the temptation to fork R+Q with Nc2) to find Be2 protecting passed pawn and attacking the R
    •  It's... it's just great how Melikset Khachiyan forces the N for R exchange and using his K to blockade white's kingside Ps, all this with white's queen still on the board and with 2 of white's R en prise it's... it's incredible
    • finally, after Melikset Khachiyan gains a solid position, he plays about 3 prophylaxis moves before making his final assault

    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.
