Here are the complete games mentioned in the video. The moves from the second game were incorrect in the databases so I inserted a couple of moves (move 52) to the most likely that were actually played.
back again... Thank you Grandmaster Melik.
I hope you never stop this series. Of all the great chess.com video series, this one is my favorite. Yes, it's absolutely phenomenal!
it's a comforting thought that even mighty Grandmasters still make mistakes :)
Best chess video I've ever watched !! double thumbs up
This was helpful to know whe the situation is encountered.
The lesson was very helpful and the graphics made it easier to understand
Thank you very good.
Not easy to explain such endings in this short period of time !!
This is so much "science" even with so little pieces. Good thing is we know about it. Thanks to you !!
Hope i like it? I loved it.Thx again for a great video
Keep them coming.
Short video but lots of information
GREAT JOB GM MELEKSET!!!!!
thank you, something to remember for future
very well explained. Problem probably is that I won't remember it when I need it ;-)
But that's my problem...
3 pawns vs rook.
If pawn has advanced to sixth rank you can generally expect a draw.
Key lesson - Don't put king on same file of most advanced pawn of three pawn chain.
by GM Melikset Khachiyan
Three pawns vs a Rook, and several blunders to go with it! GM Khachiyan continues today with another "quickie" filled with mistakes for your entertainment. It isn't all a laugh though, as Melik makes some very instructive insights into not only the psychology of such positions, but the "xs and os" that go with it. "Please don't put your King on the same file as your furthest advanced pawn", begs Melik. Listen to the man!
vs. Luke McShane
