Thanks again Grandmaster Melik.
Thanks Grandmaster Melik
hey I know that guy! He I got to be taught by him. I might even get to play him in October.
Amazing video GM Melik! Thanks!
How to overcome a lose is a very important concept for anyone to learn. The intro was very good. Very practical.
Quite a weak lecture by Melik's standards - maybe because the selected game wasn't very interesting as White played quite poorly.
Masterful game by Kayden Troff. He appears to be very well coached. Peace.
Something's got to be done about that microphone. Excellent vid otherwise.
Whenever I played the wing gambit in the sicilian, I did it so I could establish a strong center but White's play is odd.
kid is good
by GM Melikset Khachiyan
What to do when you lose a tough game of chess? Time to go to the ZOO! Well, that's what Karpov did... Though Khachiyan's student, Kayden Troff, didn't quite "visit the animals" for relief, he did find a way to maintain his spirits and win a nice game in round 10 of this year's World Youth Championships in Greece. Maintaining his cool against an aggressive gambit and seizing his opportunity to grab the initiative, were the only two thing's Kayden needed to do... So much for the ZOO!
