    Good video, but it would have been interstingl to discuss what would have happened after the suggested Nb3 (by instead of Bg3 as played Capa) if black had tried ...Rc3 Rc3 Nd5. I'm a 2000 player, but I had to set the position up on Chessbase and run Houdini to see clearly to the end

    When opponent does 7... a6 8. c5 is a good response (see Epishin v. Ziatdinov, Philadelphia 1997 and Kotronias-Goldin, Sochi 1989)

    I am only a 900 player so still a beginner, but its only thorugh the application of insights such as the 7 principles that i will ever progress.  Very insightful. It reminds me of similar instruction that Jeremy Silman includes in his approach e.g. searching for imbalances, etc.  I recommend  Silman's books to any beginner.  You will see that its a tool to assist you in evaluating positions.  Thanks again GM Khachiyan.

    If a beginer finds this video too hard then they need to simply replay it, pausing where they are puzzled and analyzing that position on a board and then use the computer to check it. Nothing worthwhile in Chess is understood by merely watching it once. Learning involves searching for the answers to your questions which in Chess usually means-'Why did he play that move?' I thought the material was clearly presented. It is up to the student to learn how to apply what is taught.

    Certainly good and instructive, but not for beginner level. There should a lesson each on each one of those 7 elements with examples and more handholding.This is NOT a request to the GM, but just an idea to introduce beginners into the subject.

    I will continue to search for learning material in this regard.

    Good video, moar please!

    Also provides an excellent refutation of the flawed argument that Alekhine was merely a great tactical player.
