Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-17-17  Dave12: What a game. The Chinese genius deserves some more respect than what he gets right now, just as this game does too.
Jul-17-17  fisayo123: Yes it's a really good game and Ding Liren is an amazing player who deserves more attention and recognition by tournament organizers. It's pathetic that such a high class player doesn't get more opportunities.

Ding Liren also beats the crap out of Yu Yangyi. 5-0 in classical chess versus a player like Yu Yangyi is very impressive.

Feb-13-20  goodevans: <30.Qb1 Rxe2+ 31.Rxe2> (31.Kg1 Rxg2+ 32.Kxg2 Qd2+ 33.Kg1 Bh3 with mate to follow) <31...Qf3+ 32.Kg1 Qxe2> would leave this position:

White can't avoid the exchange of Qs on d1 (well, he can but only at huge cost) after which he'll lose both Q-side pawns leaving a hopeless endgame.

A very nice attack by Ding Liren.

Feb-13-20  Parachessus: Pretty amazing game. After 13. d4 it looks like white has a very strong grip on the critical center squares, but black looks solidly placed. It's the kind of position I would be expecting to be declared a draw in 20 or so more moves.
Feb-13-20  Parachessus: The big blunder was 18. Be7? (-1.4) Looks like 18. Qd1 (-0.1)was required.
Feb-13-20  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 25.Qd2 was vital to keep Liren's rook away from invading d-file. Failing to do that Liren gladly obliged and never let go.
