Grandmaster Melik Khachiyan throws a few more pearls of wisdom our way in today's video, featuring a game review of his recent victory over GM Jesse Kraai in the last round of the Western States Open in Reno, Nevada. A complete game indeed, watch as Melik allows his advantage to "evolve" from a queen-side pawn majority and better grip on the center -- to a devastating pawn advance and domination by the bishop pair. Enjoy!
