Grandmaster Khachiyan follows up his game with GM Alejandro Ramirez (last week) by displaying a battle against a former student. In today's video lecture, we see more explanations and tips on developing plans and coordinating pieces in the Scheveningen Sicilian. After misplacing the queen on b8, black never seemed able to recover -- while Melik's initiative and strong d4-bishop dominate the board. Not a bad way to end the game either!
