    "Im not saying don't play Be6.  I mean, if you wanna struggle, then go ahead..."  lol!

    Can someone help me please! I see from the video that be6 is met by f4 and I'm convinced that melik is right in saying this is bad for black. So My immediate thought was why then after bd7 does white not play f4? Bc6 from black can then just be met by either bf3 or qd3 from white.... I have spent the last 30min searching the database but i'm not convinced that white can't play f4 in this spot... any ideas anyone please?!

    at 7:26 or so when you are talking about why black can't push e6 I'd think just the fact of Ne7+ winning the queen would be discouraging enough.

    Wow! As an AD player and Be6 player ... I'm completely convinced ... I don't have to watch this video twice either to be convinced ... that Bd7 to Bc6 is the way to go.  I'm scared straight after watching this video. I still like the idea of playing Be6 in some situations if given the choice ... well you can see for yourself what you might be in for.  Thanks Melik ... you're awesome ...

    Great series Melik! It's even more advantageous to watch the complete series at one sitting. Then you really get a good sense of all the ideas that you show.
