In today's video GM Khachiyan provides a module game from black's point of view, displaying clearly all of black's long term positional goals (mainly, controlling the dark-squares) in the Accelerated Dragon Maroczy Bind structure. The classic game under review is Gligoric-Larsen, 1957 - and it does not disappoint! Ultimately the game ends in a perpetual check, but the instructive ideas shown along the way are worth taking note of from both white's and black's perspective.
