Jan-18-15  Doniez: Last move is check mate, then the correct notation is 34.Ng6#

  Mating Net: 22.Qd3! is a slick intermezzo.
Jan-19-15  Doniez: Interestingly both current leaders of the Challengers finished with checkmate.

  Whitehat1963: Black's in steep D. Klein after 32. Qc5+.

  al wazir: If 32...Ne7, then 33. Ng6+ Kf7 34. Nxe7 Qh7 (34...Qf8 35. Qh5+ g6 36. Qxg6#; 34...Qh8 35. Qd5+ Kf8 36. Ng6#) 35. Qxc7.

31...Re8 is the move that did black in.

Jul-18-15  Eusebius: Black should have gone for a draw instead of stealing by 26...Ba2

  Penguincw: I'm kinda surprised this is not the only game in the <tournament> where Wei Yi checkmated his opponent.

Wei Yi vs A Haast, 2015

Jul-18-15  Abdel Irada: I think Black began to go astray with 6. ...a6. This threatens nothing and accomplishes nothing useful. Better would be to start active play against White's kingside with 6. ...Bg4.

In fact, I believe it is White who has played anti-thematically with 4. o-o followed by 6. d3, reaching a position in which it is generally considered premature to have castled.

  kevin86: A bit of a surprize checkmate!

  Travis Bickle: This game almost transposes into a Ruy Lopez...
Jul-18-15  john barleycorn: Yup, <Travis> my impression, too.

Not a good idea to put your email address on a public forum.

Hmmm, how can he do it? White is Pawn up in better position. For example, 26...h5 27.f4 Qxf4 (27...Qh6 28.Qxh6 gxh6 29.Nxh5 is quite hopeless) 28.Qh8+ Bg8 29.Nf5 Rd7 30.Re8+! with mate.

Btw, instead of 24.Rde1 white could have played 24.h4! Qxh4 (24...Qg4 25.Bf5 leads to the same line) 25.Bg6 Bg8 26.Qh8 Re7 (26...Rxe3 27.Nf5 ) 27.Rxf3 Qg5 28.Bh7 Kf7 29.Ne4 Qg4 30.Nxf6! gxf6 31.Qxf6+ Ke8 32.Bg6+ Kd8 33.d5 Ne5 34.Qf8+ Kd7 35.Bf5+

Jul-19-15  Moszkowski012273: Even 23.Rxf3... wins quite easily.

My all time pick is <Don't Trust Ne1> from A Giri vs Aronian, 2012
