    Very very instructive example of calculations and seemingly simple tactics that even GM's can oversee! I really enjoy your lessons Melik Cool

    What if instead of b going on from g5 to f6, q d1 plays g4. Then h f6 plays g4. Then b g5 plays d8 and r a8 plays d8. In this case, remember the  earlier sacrifices of 2 pons, in trade now for a bishop. Is it still worth it? After all you are opening the king for 2 open lanes and your pon on f7 is pinned. And the forces are about equally strong. Or does black have more priority b/c his pieces are already in the center?

    Nice game, Melik! I remember watching this live online, hoping that one of you would do a chess.com video on it. Thank you for the instructive analysis!
