Thank you Grandmaster.
sigh. more homework. I'll be pushing pieces around for awhile trying to understand this.
Thanks for another compelling presentation on the Dragon!
GM Eugene Perelshteyn is definately winning everywhere at the moment - not only is his most recent lecture series a true credit to chess.com but he's producing the magic on the board too!
Brilliant game Melik, amazing analysis
Another great video in the series. Keep it up.
Simply great lecture. Simply great lecturer.
You are hands down my favorite video lesson author!!
Thank you for doing this dragon series....love it!
is white so much worse at 7:18 with Bxf5 followed by moving king following Re1+?

As Melik nears the close of his ten part video series on the Accelerated Dragon, he draws our attention to one of the more exciting, "lesser known" variations of the Hybrid Accelerated Dragon. Today he reviews an exciting game by one of our regular featured authors (GM Perelshteyn) and highlights the importance of being well prepared in such sharp positions. He recommends we all "listen to Eugene's play" when it comes to this line...
