GM Melik Khachiyan reviews his game against fellow Video Author, FIDE Master Elliot Liu, from the US Open last month in Los Angeles. When Liu surprises Grandmaster Khachiyan with his opening choice, Melik decides to steer the game down "original lines" with the intention of preventing black's standard plans. The game becomes wild and tactical, but Melik is still able to provide us "positional insight" into his train of thought.
