While we are all attracted to Grandmaster Melik Khachiyan's videos, he is attracted to well known positional weaknesses that inevitably lead to mating attacks. Much like IM Pruess's video, describing how to develop a solid strategical plan that can/will eventually lead to a tactical combination, here we see GM Khachiyan develop a strong positional plan (focused around the e6-pawn), and make a critical breakthrough against his opponent's kingside. The ending is pretty nice... so check it out!
