I just watched this series again for the 3rd or 4th time. I'm a die hard Schliemann fan, although I play some variations differently than the ways you suggest. Nevertheless, I feel that I really gained a lot of understanding about the positions that arise and I will feel more confident the next time I play the Schliemann in a tournament. Thank you!
Thanks again Grandmaster Melik.
make something for whitet to please i meets an opponent 400 higer raiting then me in fagernes open
I am sorry for my english
Danny and Melik playing some Schliemann gambit against each other for our entertainment sounds wonderful. Just saying.
Thanks for showing this video although I don't play this opening a lot.
If you want to be inspired for a Part 8, check out the games in the following "Schliemann gambit" tournament played by us lowly players:
Maybe a "How amateurs misunderstand the ideas of the Schliemann" video?
Enjoy! And don't be too upset with our level!!
Just wanted to say that I really liked this series and appreciated your organization and presentation, Melik. You have inspired me to learn the Schleimann ...
AM THE BEST IN CHESS
Thanks for preparing this great series! I haven't actually got the Schliemann Gambit in my repertoire yet... but as I love to play the King's Gambit as white, and as this is simply colours reversed minus a tempo, I am going to experiement with it and see what happens!!
I will try this opening in some of my games. thanks.
by GM Melikset Khachiyan
GM Melik Khachiyan brings his groundbreaking video series on the Schliemann Gambit to a close today (for now) with a review of all the critical lines a player would need to know before "officially" adopting the Schliemann into his/her black repertoire. Take notes especially on the lines he hasn't covered yet, including the supposed "refutation" of the Schliemann Gambit.
