GM GMMelik Meeting GM Khachiyan: Exchange Sacrifice by GM GMMelik
GM Khachiyan goes over a remarkable game of his. Half a point behind his Grandmaster opponent in the last round, and with the black pieces, he went all out to create a sharp positional struggle that would give him chances to win the tournament. The game is full of deep ideas, surprising moves, excellent technique, a wealth of valuable insights, and a particular focus on the Exchange Sacrifice, a familiar weapon to Khachiyan as a pupil of the Tigran Petrosian School.

IM Shankland Shankland Teaches the Najdorf: 6.Bc4 part 1 by IM Shankland
Sam Shankland's series on the Najdorf Sicilian starts with a look at responding to 6.Bc4, the move championed by great Najdorf expert Bobby Fischer. Sam explains a defensive system for black based on a quick Nbd7-c5, defending e6 and giving black the option of trading white's b3 Bishop.

We hope you will enjoy the videos as much as we do!
