    Simply the best.


    Honestly, GM Khachiyan doesn't just provide a game analysis; he provides a mind analysis.  How do you think?  What are you playing for?  What's the ideal position for my pieces on the board?  A lot of times anaylsis focuses on material conditions of the board, but there is a dialectical relationship between the tangible (i.e. material) and the intangible aspects of each position.  One facet of the chess position cannot exist in a meaningful way without the other.  You cannot have winning or advantageous tactis without first possessing a favorable position and a position means nothing if leads to bad tactics.  GM Khchiyan bridges this gap.  He is able to show that on the surface material advantages are not what they seem and that positional advantages amount to nothing if a simple tactic refutes the entire position.

    Great game. I'm always amazed by how difficult it is to put away master level players.  Watching from GM Khachiyan's perspective, it seems like white is at a disadvantage for much of the game -- and even in the end game, down a few pawns, white keeps coming up with amazing resources and one mistep by black and you have a draw. So much talent by both players!
