    lol, I was the same, wondering why ...Qd6 wasn't played. Studied it for a long time and felt things were up for grabs at that point. White's move in the game left a great impression on me - well done Simone! (I should have just finished watching the video first, duh!)

    I thought this was interesting and then found out that it is not a "premium" member video but for diamond members only.  Would like to have finished it.

    Chess.com is fabulous. I was medium in playing chess but now I have handled some furtive tricks of chess.

    Rfa1 is one of the most profound moves I've ever seen. Great lecture Melik.

    @Chess_Prophylaxis I agree, when it comes to the analysis mistake/correction. It's kind of fun to see that happen; it shows that GMs are not robots, and it does not in any way detract from the instructional value of the video.

    On the typo, I agree with teashare. Not a big deal, but somebody should catch things like that.

    Still, great video, and a great game by the young master. Thank you Melik for sharing it with us!

    @teashare, Why?  Even GM's make mistakes, and what is even better is we as the audience became immersed into Melik's thinking process.  I think the video is amazing the way it was recorded.  I think you have a very elitest view on what these training videos are meant for.  I completely disagree in the strongest possible sense, with your assessment.

    Great video Melik!  You must be doing something right, when your students play so well.

    Amazing end game calculations

    At the end, Mr. Khachiyan makes a mistake and mis-analyzes a variation, then picks up on his own mistake and says his pupil is even smarter than he is. That's charming, but wouldn't it have been better to re-record the ending? I hope chess.com makes that kind of re-recording possible. The analysis is still helpful and pleasant the way it is, but I think it would have been even better without that mistake.

    Later on, the grandmaster says, "It's important to play h4 and try to reach the h6 square." The last part of this appears in the written version as "try to reach the _a6_ square," a mishearing of what Mr. Khachiyan is saying which, of course, makes no sense. 

    Probably there should be another video-making step, and in that step someone should check the recording and how the recording tips are written down.
