Great video sir
Very nice and instructive game. :)
But sadly I don‘t get the opening information. Why is it more accurate to delay castling? Hasn‘t White still d5 after Nc3? Why does he go for e3 here? But maybe I‘m a way to weak player to understand the opening moves at all. Re8 to prepare e5 and then blocking the e file with Be6 is not something I‘m able to understand.
But to the more important part of the game: At 20:09 after Bd2 instead of Rxe4 the simple Nc4 (my intention) fails to Kxh2, when Black is only a pawn ahead after Nxd2 Nxd2 Qxd2+ followe by taking on e3. Is that won for Black?
At 21:24 I rejected Rh4 because of Rh1, which should (besides Be1 of course) also win the Bishop, right?
Excellent game! Very instructive. Thank you.
nah Mr kramsen its actually part of theory ..roman suggested not to go for early h5 before develoment ..i am sure he is one of guy who wants to go h5 after development ..here a5 thinks stops white idea of Rb1 b4 and gettin good flank play
Nice video - but I think Roman would hate it, since you did a5 (check hif video on Grünfeld)
Grand master u r great teacher ...teaching not only initiative also how to calculate !!! ur calculations are bind blowin and u made it look simple too..also breaking the whites big pawn chain ... tht was so awesome xd u made it look like "yea take my pawn and loose yr centre " hehe also gave an idead about stoping Bb2 and u killed the bishop dead ..and yea bishop the only big guy to survive and when its got active match was over xd u really kept yr eye on tht bishop and loose it free only when u know positions winning xd
excellent game sir
very nice gm victor
Really appreciate your clear and thorough exposition. Very inspiring!
by GM Victor Mikhalevski
After a seemingly innocent pawn-grab by GM Mikhalevski's opponent, White suffers for the the rest of the game. His undeveloped pieces continue to struggle against the pressure, and although he survived until the endgame, our video author shows some nifty technique to get the full point without any stress. The message: Don't be afraid to invest a small amount of material to ruin your opponent's chance to effectively marshal his forces.

GM Victor Mikhalevski
He started to play chess at the early age of 4! He was coached by his brother, IM Alex Mikhalevski. While in school, he won innumerable championships of Belarus for his age group, and played not less than five Soviet Junior championships with world famous players Kramnik, Svidler, Shirov and many others taking part. In the beginning of 1991 Victor immigrated to Israel, where he won two Israel Junior Chess Championships in 1991 and 1992. Skipping ahead of many great accomplishments to January 2008, Victor achieved his peak rating of 2632 and was placed 92nd in the world and fourth in Israel. In 1989 Victor started coaching and his students won medals in the World and European Youth chess championships. Mikhalevski was awarded the IM title in 1993 and the GM title in 1996. In 2013 Victor published his first book Grandmaster Repertoire 13- The Open Spanish.
