    16...Ra7

    70

     

    44.3% 41.4% 14.3%

     

    16...Kh8 24
    12.5% 45.8% 41.7%

    16...Kh8 looks more promising than 16...Ra7 based on the above statistics.

    my notes from this video

    • Typical Melikset
      • when falling behind positionally, he resorts to simplication and transposes the position to the endgame.
    • Knowing how to defend K+R vs. K+R+B can save many games. 
    • keep the king close to the center;
      • if you get pushed to the side, head to the coner opposite to the B color.
      • In general, keep your pieces on the opposite color of the B.
      • Use your R to give checks, pins (B to K) and to cut off the K
      • Survive 50 moves and declare the draw.
    • Notice how Melikset Khachiyan wins the a6-P... Excellent Endgame technique
    • In the end game, always keep your R as flexible as possible. If deciding the side of the board to place your R, chose the side where the R can check the K without pieces interposing.

    ' It's, it's hard to stop the pawns; they just coming to kill you '

    That made me laugh so much

    Another absolutely fantastic lecture from one of my favourite video authors. Keep up the great work!
