thank you GM Khachiyan!!!!! very clear and well put!
Wow! This series is just getting better and better. I'm reading Zurich 1953 and GM Melik Kachiyan reminds me a lot of how Bronstein comments on the variations in that book. Completely logical and straight forward!
Brilliant lecture and congratulations on your win - winning with consistent plans ;)
Thanks, mister Kachiyan.
You have a talent for describing the strategic plans in middle games and making them accessible for class players. Great job as always.
thanks for the video.
Great game Melik, it takes skill and concentration to do that. Thank you GrandMaster Melik.
"making consistant plan"
very instructive video, cant wait for the next part.
by GM Melikset Khachiyan
GM Khachiyan employs an obscure opening system with black against FIDE Master Eugene Yanayt in today's video lecture, and he highlights the principles of developing with a plan and an eye on "where you want your pieces in the long term". When the position becomes dynamic, Melik explains how his consistent thought process lead him to make the concrete and accurate decisions.
