Today GM Khachiyan reviews one of his own games, highlighting how to dominate your opponent with the little guys! Here black achieves a strong structural advantage and manages to "hold the fort" for the remainder of the battle. As usual, Melik offers great advice on how to play against your opponent's bad pieces (take away their "teammates"), how to recognize and target weaknesses, and how to play opposite colored bishop endings with skill.
