    Okay, Kn to f6 on the fifth ply. definete advice; now that;s good instruction; it's simple and even I can remember it!

    "A Donkey piece" LOL. I love it. Also the definete instruction in the beginning that the Queen must re-take on f6. this is exactly the kind of thing that sends me into a a downward spiral of failed analysis, ( I can't go deep enough), then depressive thinking, "I'm only a make-believe chess player, anyway"; and meanwhile the damn clock ticks away. So now; it's settled; it only needs 2 seconds; the Queen re-takes. Okay. That's what I call instruction. Very pleased with this game; plenty of fireworks!

    good game! I had an endgame not too disimilar from the above today when I played an otb game for my club - bishops always outplay their pawn "value" equivalent! you are a good teacher Melik :)

    @f7f5:  I am just a patzer, but I ~think~ the reason f3/f4 fails is that the queen cannot stay on the second rank.  18.  ...Re8, and if 19. Qd2, then 19.  ...Bh6 forces the queen to c2.  There it looks safe at first, but of course, black can take the protecting night with check (since the f pawn has moved), thus pick up the queen.  Of course, if white moves off the second rank, then mate on g2. 

    Nice question.  These are my favoirte type of calculation exercise.  Too bad I would never find these moves in an actual game Tongue out.

    Small mistake at 20:26. The rook can go to e5 and Bxf3 would be a severe blunder because of Rf5+.

    After Rae8 in the game (16:25 in the video), you suggest that black answer ...dxc5 with Bxb2.  But why not Rxe3 with the main idea being that on fxe3, white can carry though the previously mentioned threat of Bg4 forking the queen and mate on e2?  Just want to know what I'm missing (since it's always something :)).  Thanks for the great vid as usual GM Khachiyan!

    Actually, on second thought, you wouldn't even need Rxe3 because answering Bg4 with f3 already loses the queen.  But the question remains, why can't Bg4 be played immediately since now the Q protects g4?

    Final edit:  Okay, now I see that on Bg4, white can give a Q check on d5, forcing a Q trade, where now the white rook protects d5 since the d pawn has moved.  Sheesh, so easy, yet I miss it!  Oh well, I leave the comment up in case anyone else had the same question Laughing.

    Very interesting position result from the Schliemann Gambit. I hope there is a Part 3.
