  Eisenheim: its one thing to play rapid - its another to play without a plan. master yue looks lost for most of this
Mar-16-09  holland oats: Good example by Moro of how to exploit slow piece development. White's position after 18.Be1? is laughable.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: This looks like a lot of my losses--I don't know how many of my opponents tell me how helpless they felt, that there was nothing they could do to stop me from losing.
Mar-16-09  paavoh: Hello <An Englishman>, a good one! "...there was nothing they could do to stop me from losing."
Mar-16-09  ex0duz: I dont think Yue should be playing Nf3, c4, or any english type setups. I don't think he's used to such positions. He should stick to d4 or even e4(i think he plays d4 more though).

I agree with the others who say his play looks confusing here.. It does look like he's lost. Moro too, but that's what he does best. Moro is at his best when he's lost. lol!

Mar-16-09  darth shitious: it would seem Yue isnt a gm at rapid
Mar-16-09  refutor: as yue is a young (and still developing player) an event like amber is a perfect opportunity to "learn the ropes" of english-type setups.

I don't this comment is valid for a player rated 2739. I think he tried to play originally, but it must have been some other problem like e.g. miscalculation / hallucination / fatigue.

Mar-17-09  Eban: like Bu Xiangzhi , Wang Yue also has a crappy opening repertoire.

Here he tries something Aronian played Aronian vs Kamsky, 2008 , but fails miserably
