    To be fair, computer says that actually after Nxd3+ from black after the final position, black is not even losing by half a pawn. 

    White was better, sure, but black was not at all dead yet (except for time of course :) )

    I enjoyed this game and lecture, how you restricted black's play and improved your pieces.   I particularly enjoyed Qf3-d1-d4 maneuver, the offer of trading queens to threaten to win a pawn and deter Ne5.  Also Bc4-f1-g2- (f3 inserted) -Bf1-e2 manuever was absolutely splendid!  Your approach in this game leaves me with a very positive impression on how to bottle up the opposition and to keep some advantages in the position without calculating too many variations.  In all quite instructive for me for how to play using the entire board.  Thanks for this great lecture!

    I like Melik's emphasis on always looking for ways to improve his pieces. Very patient. Excellent look at exposing weaknesses in positons and exploiting imbalances. thanks again for a great video!

    Nice analysis, I picked up some ideas when I am facing Scandinavian. A lot of people play ...Bg4 move against me. I will try GM Melikset's approach. Many thanks.

    A very nice lecture: short and sweet, but with many opportunities for learning.

    One suggestion I have is to consider sometimes pausing for just a second or two and asking the viewers to pause the video and try to find the next move or the key ideas before you explain them. I learn and remember more from videos when I try to figure things out and get immediate feedback in the video after every attempt, and I assume that's probably helpful for others too.

    Thanks for the great video!
