    Note for the webmaster. I'm missing the video controls. Can't pause, resume or go back or anything else. The only option would be to refresh page and play from start. like now when a reminder poped up and the video paused - i can't hit play since there are no buttons. Please fix. Thanks. I'm using safari on ipad.

    Update: updating to IOS 6.0.1 did not fixed the issue, but after restarting it displayed the controls once. After posting this comment video controls were gone again. Restarting safari did not help. Please look into it. It must be fixable on your side. Btw safari on ipad is using quicktime video player.

    I lost a game in a similar position with d5 break. In hindsight, should have gone c5 to grab space. Very interesting positional idea. Thanks

    As always with GM Khachiyan, a fantastic lesson.  My mind is always blown by how easy he makes it seem.  He really allows you to get into the thinking process.

    Wow! One of the best video's! I say this because you explain the thought process of a GM! Believe it or not, you telling us how much time you took for a move is very helpful too! Let's me know what positions a GM find's key and worth thinking about. These video's are highly valued keep it up!

    Malik tells us that when you find yourself in uncharted waters, a solid chess thinking process is to use instinct and follow a principle of making the most obvious moves. (moves you have to make anyways.) until you can develop your own plan. He reminds us that both players are thinking, and part of the game is to try and read your opponents mind - ie "what is the thinking associated with this move?"

    notes for this game:

    When chasing white bishop from g4, h5, g6 remember the ruy lopez move of d3.

    If black queen takes pawn a b4 it opens up a plethera of strategic and tactical options. 

    white castles king side with idea of pushing pawns on queen side.

    White cramps the pieces that want to use dark squares.

    Notes general:

    When you are better developed and more active keep pieces alive.

    thanks,
