Thank you Grandmaster.
@Evaldas6 6.d3 d5 7.Nxe5! leads to equality. 7.Nxf6 gxf6 (Qxf6!?) 8.Nxe5? dxe5 9.Qh5+ Kd7 now if 10.Qg4 Kd6!-+ and 10.0-0! Qe8 11.Qf3 Qe6 where white has some comp, but most likely not enough.
can these moves also play for whight
I encountered a very annoying line : 4 Nc3 fxe4. 5 Nxe4 Nf6. 6 d3? d5. Nxf6+ gxf6.
7 Nxe5 ! fxe5? 8 Qh5+ auchtown
After the game i looked at this position and did not want anything to do with it, couldn't find a good move for black. Even if i can survive next 5 moves position very difficult to play.
2 Questions arrive; Is my evaluation after move 8 wrong or after d3? i should have played something different. Anyway just wanted to share this line and see what happens, would have reached Mr. Melikset if knew how to do so
you are so asome in the chess

Good video. keep up the good work.
i challenge u anonymous canadian
Well since I am a non premium member, like 95% of people watching this, does anyone have a link to the game on Chessgames?
by GM Melikset Khachiyan
Today GM Khachiyan reviews all of white's options against his recommended 5...Nf6 against the 4.Nc3 main line. The details are critical and Melik delivers them in instructive fashion! His summarizes his thoughts on the line by reviewing a game against GM Josh Friedel, where his plan was simple and very similar to his game against GM Perelshteyn. The point: Black equalizes easily!
