    Some great tips there Melik! although I don't play 1.e4 the ideas can still be applied in any middlegame perhaps.

    I like the way you play, it's a mature way to view the game. I love flashy play but hate the riskes it exposes me to. I find I play more comfortable in a positonal game. Thank You for another great video! We all appreciate your skill and time!

    Why not try ... f5 after eg Bc2 and activate bishop ?

    to @Ghost79 Thats typical tactic in this kind of game. If Nxe5? then Qh4! and black is close to winning

    He explains everything so simply, but this game really shows the polish of a grandmaster.  Just clinical.

    Nice game.  Made it look very easy to take down an FM.  After Nh5 I was looking for some tactical refutation with Nxe5, but d4 was a very principled and logical approach (d3 hangs in the lines with Nxe5, therefore by thinking from the end we can find the move d4 from a different train of thought).  Thank you for the good instruction.
