    Similar to the classic, Winter - Capablanca game which I think Melik covers in a later video.

    Good one. I think the first game of the Death Match between Polgar and Short went in a similar fashion by punishing Bg4 by sending it to the corner to spectate.

    So nice how you shut in the Bishop for the whole game. Black was effectively playing down a piece the whole time.

    I love making enemy pieces worthless like what you have done - shutting them out of the game. Weaker players don't seem to grasp positional play very well and although I'm a relatively decent player, I on occasion make these mistakes and know positional play is where I'm lacking.

    On Melikset Khachiyan's 3rd move he sets out to lock down black's bishop with 2 pawn chains. That pawn remained lock up for the entire game. Absolutely phenomenal.

    This video was very helpful and instructive.  Great insight on restricting opponents passive pieces and keeping them passive as well as watching an opening move that can cause your pieces to be restricted.  Thanks again!

    Thank You Mr. Khachiyan! Great video as it opened up a new way of thinking and analyzing Bishop pins in openings.

    250494, the reason you couldn't watch the whole video was because you are not a diamond member. You are a basic member, so you don't receive that many privileges.

    Good lesson on noticing weak or passively posted material to build a plan around, and being patient to build up the pressure before attacking them. Positional maneuvers to get tactical wins.
