"I hope you like it and we'll talk about Chess in our next session" - Melikset Khachiyan
Thanks, interesting game. You do not see a Knight backpedal a lot...
great video...those sharp lines are too advanced for me. I better study more to improve my game.
v nice game
I personally haven't seen a Video Instructor offer his lost game as a means for others to learn; so I admire your your doing so. From a humble, but very competent, teacher, one can learn a great deal. Thank you, Melikset!
Nb1! Nice coverage Melik. :)
I really Enjoyed it!
I especially like the very last statement. I have fallen victim to that so many times.
Another GREAT video Melikset!!!
by GM Melikset Khachiyan
Grandmaster Khachiyan reviews another one of his own games for our viewing pleasure today! Here we see his extremely interesting, and very dynamic struggle against GM Robert Hess from the US Championship just a couple months ago. When Melik employs a somewhat obscure opening variation, GM Hess is surprisingly well prepared. They reach a very strange and tactical game where even the slightest mistake will spell doom. Who prevailed? Watch and find out...
