Thank you Grandmaster Melik.
in second problem I was thinking about Qe2 Rd4 and Ne3... i guess thats another solution.
Amazing:First he got in my mind and saw all my variants, then, instantly he "became" a GM and show his piont of view!!!, once again, amazing and thank you for this videos!
I think that at the end there you should add in calculating Nf1 as a desperation defense forwhite. It fails to Qxf1 and Ne3 once again, but black definitely has to see it.
Excellent. Thank you for the focus on what we want to achieve.
@ 17:58 "Because these two pawns are running, so scary, woo ooh." LOL!
Best comment ever!

Very instructive! Thank you Grandmaster Melik. Seems to me these ideas can be transferred to Tactics Trainer easily.
Thanks for your calculation tips! Can you put out a 3rd video?
MrMars and PureJay are right.Great vid, very cool bishop move in the first one that I absolutely did not see, second one was easier.
yea helpful :) ...
The correct pronunciation is something like "on preeze" according to dictionary.com: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/en+prise
Actually I love GM Melik's accent, especially his expression "What about this guy here?" which he uses often in his excellent videos.
by GM Melikset Khachiyan
GM Khachiyan provides his own instructive take on a famous Isolated Queen Pawn position. Highlighting how to improve your calculation skills, and where to avoid common pitfalls, Melik reveals white's best approach in a complicated attacking position (the brilliant Bc2) and provides criticism of common "calculating myths" amateurs hold over grandmasters. Enjoy this original review of Najdorf-Kotov, 1957!
