    GM Khachiyan plays black in the Italian game (slow playing) along theoretical lines until he pushes his pawn to c5 opening up the a2 g1 diaganol for black square bishop. From there, "the fight was on," with consistent aggressive play from black. Black wins.

    Note - sometimes to keep control of the game you may have to sacrifice a piece.

    "chess is not about material it is about controling more squares."

    Danny Rensch usually writes the descriptions. I upload the videos in the first place. But I can change the descriptions if I need to :-)

    Isn't it actually "Mano a Mano" as in "Hand to hand"?

    Also, do you normally write those descriptions, fr0ggE?

  • 3 years ago


    Changed the "mano y mano"...thanks for the correction!

    So? After all Y (deep (i) )  is a greek letter (thats why called ygrec in french) how can an Y nounced as E? blah blah your comment had no point as well as mine. (thats the point)

    "mano-e-mano" is incorrect.


    It's mano "y" mano


    In Spanish,  "Y" means "and". It is pronouned like English "E"
