Alright, lady's and gentlemen, another great show. I loved it and learned a lot. Let's jump right in. I have commented on many moves, scroll through.

Hope you enjoyed that and here are many more nuggets of information that GM Melik has been humble enough to share.
  • Defense must be as cheap as possible, the least valuable peace should protect the most valuable piece.
  • Don't trade queens if it improves your opponent's pawn structure.
  • You must improve your tactic to be good at the end game.
  • Analyze your games without the computer, use your own brain.
  • If you are winning stay aggressive.
  • If you are pinning a peace build pressure on it.
  • Suggested reading, for end game. "Basic Chess Ending" By Reuben Fine

Thank you everyone for enjoying the ride see you next time on "Melik and ME"
