Grandmaster Khachiyan continues his new video series on the subject of recognizing and then exploiting your opponent's sub-par positional (pawn play) understanding. Here we see his young opponent walk into a reverse Benoni, and Melik thinks: "this is bologna"! Pay attention to Melik's thought process and how it quickly led to a much better position for white (the Nh4-f5 and f4-pawn break being the key ideas). Enjoy!
