Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-04-12  twinlark: Wei Yi's daring style of play keeps reaping dividends.

Position by move 16 is a draw for the taking against a higher rated opponent, but then he diverges with <19. Qc4>, in response to which Oparin immediately goes wrong by capturing the d5 pawn with the Queen rather than the Knight (which would have been equal), which immediately allows White's queen to fatally infiltrate his uncastled position.

The rest...was a matter of technique. Very nice technique at that.

Aug-05-12  JohnBoy: <twin>: I don't know if 19...Nxd5 20.Bd3 is any better. Rather I wonder if black had a survival chances after 23...Qa8. But a beautiful effort by the 13 year old.
Aug-05-12  shivasuri4: <JohnBoy>, I think 20. Bd3 (threatening Be4) would be met with 20...Rc8, and black is doing fine. Continuing, 21. Qe4 (threatening Bc4) will be replied with 21...Rc7.
