  KingG: It's difficult to know what to say anymore about Radja's play with White. Now he loses to a completely out of form Wang on the White side of a Petrov! Can it get any worse?
Mar-19-09  volvak: A trademark Wang Yue win. White overstretches with a small mistake - in this case, 16.Rd3 - and it's all over.

Any worse than losing to a ~2750 ELO player? you bet!

Mar-19-09  AuN1: chairman wang finally picks up a full point.
Mar-19-09  Glossu: Nice debut victory by the Panda of Chess. This is the kind of positions where he excells. It is very instructive to note how he found ways to pressure White's King with the barest of materials!.
Mar-24-09  dumbgai: 41...f6! is a key move while the natural-looking fxg6? only draws. The difference is that against a g-pawn the white king can stay on g2 to block the pawn while his rook shuffles around. With an f-pawn, this fails because with the king on f2 black can eventually play Rh1! where white can't play Rxc2 because of Rh2+.
