  sydbarrett: Once black got the passed pawn chain at move 22, the game was done. All Wei Yi had to do was convert the win. The game looked a bit too easy, though the position for the first 20 moves was a little complex.
Jul-15-15  dumbgai: Stockfish 6 thinks white would have been much better taking with 22. dxc5. But still, white was slightly better until 24. e5? which went unpunished when black played 24...Kf7? (Qb2+ followed by d3-d2 wins). White finally lost the wheels for good with 27. Rxh5? although the game is very complicated and hard to play correctly for both sides.
Jul-15-15  fisayo123: It's impossible to correctly evaluate the computer's suggestion of 24...Qb2+ with only few minutes left on the clock, especially when white has what looks like a potentially crushing attack. Even without the time element, it seems incredibly risky to ignore the attack with check and start pushing pawns with 43...d3! After 44.Ne7+ Kf8 45. Rxh4, the position looks extremely risky, especially with the white pawn on e5 which traps the black king on the kingside..

So, from a pure human point of view, i'm not sure if giving 24...Kf7?! a (?) is reasonable at all. The real blunder was perhaps 22.Ng6? , allowing black 2 connected passers, though I'm sure Fedoseev thought he was just mating somewhere.

Jul-15-15  kia0708: interesting game

Jul-15-15  latvalatvian: I can tell the player of the white pieces was trying to figure out what Stockfish 6 would play throughout this game, but in the end could only make human moves. Oh well! Stockfish 6 isn't for everyone.

  HeMateMe: bold how black left his King so exposed. Good nerves and calculations.
Jul-22-15  Tempo Gambit: White should've gave back the material with Rxd2 then if BxR then RbxBb3 and we have at least a chance for white
Jul-22-15  dumbgai: Not really, the endgame would be hopeless. Black just pushes the a-pawn and d-pawn and white has no chance of stopping both.
