    Melik, I'm a big fan but you really should have re-recorded this. Great explanation of prophylactic thinking but errors in analysis should have required your corrections.

    Usually Melik's videos are great (Dvoretsky-esque), but the missed mates were very distracting. Hopefully there is a retraction or another Melik video on the same topic soon!

    At 8:38, after overlooking Rxe4, Qc1+ leading to a mate for black, Melik proceeds to mate black with 2 white queens, and then says, "Very simple". Looks like the video needs an overhaul.

    Most of your videos are exclams, but this one was a blunder.  I'm looking forward to seeng you start a new series.

    Missing backrank checkmate after Re4 once or twice. Also I don't understand why after miscalculating (7:14) you don't go back and delete (edit) the video but instead leave miscalculations in it.

    Other then that, a good topic and an interesting position.

    Very instructive, but has a miscalculation Qc1 after Rxe4!

    Maybe at 8:34 instead of Rxe4 you meant Qd5+? Then if Kh7 Qxf5 wins. And after Kh8 e8=Q should be mating shortly. I haven't checked with the computer but it seems to work.

    @8:36, doesn't black win after Qc1+, then there is no defense to the mate!!!

    I'm a little confused..

    Yea Rxe4 isn't possible in any variation. Weird that you spot advanced variations more clearlySurprised

    It is already at 5.57: Why fxe4? There is a mate before that with Queen to the first rank.
