    Omg! 23:26 he forgets he's imitating and says I and then catches himself :D

    Hilarious yet instructive!

    Funny video indeed. Can you try GM Dzindzi sometime? We're all part of the chess.com family, so a little humor couldn't hurt even if it's with Dzindzi the great. Right Dzindzi? :)

    Sam, that was a great imitation of Melikset Khachiyan because it's not that easy. If Melikset is the best chess.com author, you are right up there with him. Great job!

    I'm not sure mocking GM Melik is in good taste.  It only really displays the immaturity of Sam Shankland.  Not sure why chess.com would even air this pitiful, insulting video. 

    Sam, the respect I had for you is lost, but of course, what I think doesn't matter, besides, look at all the dweeby fans you have chiming in.  Pathetic

    Nice parody, but Melik is normally much slower, only you have that tempo Smile

    That was great. Fortunately I haven't seen the comments before watching the video so by the end I was convinced that GM Khachyian is chess.com version of dr. House.Smile


    As for AceChess' "Accent Challenge", maybe the two of you could make first-person analysis (or fake Live Sessions) of some all-SSSR/Russian matches for the title of World Champion, for example Kasparov vs. Karpov or Botvinnik vs. Tal.

    That was just amazing... Even at the end, I was not convince for some time. Very Impressive. Great game to watch, great commentary... hope to see more of this in the future.

    Our video authors are having too much fun!! But they deserve it. Sam, I watched the final rapid playoffs live on "Ben and Jen show" and was happy you won the Junior title. Watching the interview, my god you are a good looking young man. But what is this nonsense about you retiring...well you will stll have to make videos for usCool
