    Early in the game played ...B-b4 and you said this was forced.  What is wrong with taking on e4 with the pawn or the knight?  The bishop this has chances to relocate to f5.  What did you intend to if you opponent captured on e4 instead of playing ...B-b4?

    One spot that I found hard to understand was at 8:46... Melik says that the b3 and a4 pawns are strong as they take away all the squares from the knight and bishop.  Black plays h6, but I wondered why the natural looking Nd7 was rejected.  I ended up letting Rybka show me the answer:

    Great instruction, but could you please be careful with your audio levels. There was  a lot of clipping.

    Hi Melik you always pick instructive games for your videos and this is another good example.

    One thing I would like to comment is sometimes you say things like "this is his only move" without explaining why.

    Please keep in mind that sometimes these things might not be obvious to your viewers.

    Thanks for the very helpful and instructive video.  I especially like the way you tie in rules and chess methods and chess thinking with your instruction.
