Future Champions: Novelty in the French
A golden game by one of GM Khachiyan's "golden boys"! Today Melik reviews another great performance by one of his students. Here we watch as FM Steven Zierk takes down IM Amanov on the black side of a French Defense. After a brilliant shot on the kingside (g5), black's initiative takes over. Surprisingly, white never really has a chance to recover from not play Qc1 a the right time. Zierk finishes the game off in style.
