Thank you Grandmaster.
we students are lucky to have you GM Melik; but your across the board opponent is not feeling so lucky! This game also, reminds me of Capablanca; stupifying over the board complications that leave your opponent helpless.
Problems with the .pgn file also.
what happens if white just takes f5 in the beginning of the gambit? what follows up?
Brilliant game, brilliant lecture!! I'd be well proud of a game like this :)
Beautiful game - thank you for the video - really enjoyed it.
What a great teacher! The ideas you shared are invaluable. Your students are very lucky to have you.
Why not 17 b#e5 ?
Why resign ?
Crazyrook Radjabov plays it frequently and he's 2770+ FIDE. Also Khachiyan has a number of games he's won with this opening in his video archive against IMs and GMs.

Dear GM Khachiyan,
There're no games in the pgn. Could you please fix it? Incidentally, do you play the Jaenisch when you need a draw? I think it's nearly impossible to employ this opening to win on GM-level.
You can see an article and get an alternate pgn here:
This game just became the best game of year of 2011 US Chess League.
Good job. thanks.
Am I the only one who can't load the .pgn file?

Today GM Khachiyan reviews the "other main line" in the Schliemann outside of 4.Nc3. When white wants to choose a more positional approach, 4.d3 is the way to go! Melik displays the critical ideas in this line while reviewing a game that won him Game of the Week honors in the US Chess League. Enjoy the middlegame fireworks as much as the opening advice.
vs. Khachiyan, Melik
