In one of his most recent tournaments, GM Khachiyan faced off against a fellow Video Author to create a dynamic, Classical Spanish struggle! International Master Keaton Kiewra took the white pieces into this main line Lopez, but when Melik engineered the threat of a d5-pawn break, Keaton was forced to concede the advantage, and found himself slowly outplayed into the late middlegame/endgame.
