    Another great lesson by GM Khachiyan. I've been learning a lot through the videos of calculation and I pause the videos first to try and solve to problems on my own. I've agreed with every single problem except the first tactical position. 1. RxR QxR 2. BxP Qa2 and the continuation is to play Qa8 which (to me) is impractical. I believe it would be easier for anyone to play for material gain instead of positional gain. I would continue (instead of Qa8) with 3. BxR QxB 4. Bc3! Winning either the rook or knight. I believe that would be more of a practical way to play. Great videos though.

    Is it "tactics must serve strategy" or "tactics must sever strategy"?  "tactics' most severe strategy"? "tactics mask server strategy"?

    I found the 1st and 3rd examples almost instanty, but for the second puzzle I missed the Be4 idea after Kf1( very nice idea to hold it together).  Great video!

    Awesome!  I know the first board was introduced as a tournament game.  Were the next two positions/puzzles taken from an acutal game between high level players.  Either way, beautiful lesson.  Thank you Melikset!
