Hey Melik, it is jeremy. congrats on drawing Akobian. Great video
Thank you Grandmaster.
Greetings from PaulsChessMarch.com
I enjoyed the video, particularily the way you pulled it all together at the end with the three key points. That seems like such a small thing but it helps me and I believe others to understand how general statements are applied to a given position. I also really appreciate that you openly admitted that a student found a plan that was very good and would meet all the GM tests.... That gives us "hope" and encourages us to keep trying to improve and helps us to enjoy this game we call chess!

by GM Melikset Khachiyan
Fans of the Budapest Gambit will appreciate GM Melikset Khachiyan's treatment of a topical anti-Grunfeld variation. Melik shows how his savvy preparation, with the help of his trusty sidekick Houdini, netted him an outpost deep in White's territory. As white ran low on time, the grandmaster showed once again how knights can compete with bishops.
