Sep-25-15  kamagong24: wei yi has gone a long way here! congrats to both players!!!
Sep-25-15  Marmot PFL: Svidler cleverly offers the queen trade, realizing that white's b pawn will be weaker than his own doubled pawns.

Sep-25-15  Pulo y Gata: Experience prevailed, but the Chinese prodigy has gone a long Wei. And Svidler is such a nice guy. 😊
Sep-25-15  siggemannen: Isn't it the second game in short time where Svidler kills Wei Yi with the dreaded knight pair?
Sep-26-15  offramp: <keypusher>, good one!

This game has one of the longest ♗♗v♘♘ endings I've seen. It's moves 24-60. It shows that it's not the strength of the pieces that matters, it's the strength of the player moving those pieces.

It shows that it's not the strength of the pieces that matters, it's the strength of the player moving those pieces.> I don't think bishop always superior to knight in every chess position. During those 24 to 60 moves black was always a pawn up.
Oct-19-15  st.dvy: Peter Svidler has been among the top 15 or so players in the world for over a decade. He only loses to super GMs like Anand, Carlsen,or Topalov. Svidler knows the bishop pair is superior to the knight pair, in the greater majority of cases, but also knows Yi is just not in his class yet. In fact, he may have been toying with him. From about move 38 on, Svidler just methodically advances and so chokes the position that Yi had to trade off a bishop,then,the extra pawn and advanced king solves everything. What an instructive ending. I'd still rather have the bishop most cases.
Oct-19-15  iking: this is a blitz game but it seems Svidler towed his piece to a winning position with ease, voila!
Oct-19-15  starry2013: I'm not sure it's worth reading too much into a blitz game.
