Today Melik Khachiyan reviews his win against Grandmaster Alex Lenderman from the 2010 U.S. Championship. Although the game itself is very instructive and climaxes in a very well-played rook endgame by Melik, the main topic of this video lecture (and the sequel coming soon) is how to play against the Maroczy Bind from the black side of the Accelerated Dragon. Melik has his own "original recipe" when it comes to this, and he sure does make it look good!
