    Congrats. Must be exciting coaching a prodigy chess player. I'm going to be on the look out for Kayden and I'm sure he will not be hard to find.

    That is wild, exciting chess, straight out of the 19th Century! All tactics and attacking!

    Thanks so much lbtr for posting the moves of the game. I'd like to know how to do this. I'd also like to have access to the game moves for all of the videos on chess.com. Very handy for previewing and reviewing.

    Kayden seems to play many different systems and positions and quite well too, which is interesting and good, at a relatively young age compared to most at his caliber.  Interesting game, as the Benko seems to typically produce.

    Kayden shows a great future by taking control of this game that had an unusual opening.

    Wonderful game and wonderful succinct commentary by Melik Khachiyan!! That said, I wish Melik had spent some time on ...Qb7 instead of the blunder ...Bh4? (Though the refutation Rg3!! is not obvious.)  After 16. ...Qb7 it is not at all clear that White is better.  Black's Q might later go to d5, also the Black Rook might kick out the White Q with a later Ra8, and then penetrate the White position.  Unclear but I would guess Black has more practical chances that White.

    Preparation for the Benko Gambit was key, kudos to the trainers. Troff obviously had the confidence to find the better shots after the black queen had rampaged a bit, showing keen understanding of the dark square opportunities.

    Very interesting game. Very counter to develop, castle then mix it up.


    Your comment about judging the position and that white stood better due to the black squares was instructive. Positions like this are very uncommon for most of us and seeing such a game played by such a young talent was great.


    It would be nice to include a link to the broadcast under Related:
