|Jul-13-17|| ||fisayo123: Fantastic domination of the dark squares with the Queen. Wei Yi uses his Queen to dominate the light squared bishop and the rook on the 5th rank. And it seems to me the rook is "stuck" on that rank as if say 50... Rd7 51. a4! Bxa4?! 52. d5! and white is winning. If black neglects to take, then just (a5, a6) and white makes serious progress. |
It's cool to see this sort of domination of the queen over the rook and bishop in a position that seemingly looked like a fortress.

|Jul-13-17|| ||starry2013: why did black move the bishop from c6, seemed solid|
|Jul-13-17|| ||morfishine: A great game, just another incredible <Wei Yi> game|
|Jul-13-17|| ||Whitehat1963: Early masterpiece for the youngster!|

|Jul-17-17|| ||patzer2: <7he5haman: I've never seen a combo like that before! Does anyone know of any similar examples?> I classify 22. Rh5! Qxh5 23. Nd7+ as a "discovered attack with check." |
A discovered attack with check differs from a discovered check in regard to which piece is giving check (i.e. the hidden piece or the discovering piece.)
According to http://www.uschess.org/content/view... <A discovered check occurs when a player moves a piece that reveals a hidden piece behind it that attacks (i.e. checks) the enemy king.> In contrast, according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disco..., <When the moving piece gives check to the opponent's king, the maneuver is often described as a discovered attack with check.>
Some examples of the discovered attack with check tactic can be found at http://www.chess-game-strategies.co....
I also have a short collection of 9 games (including this one) with this tactic at Game Collection: Discovered Attack with Check.
|Jul-17-17|| ||patzer2: Correction: "A discovered attack with check differs from a discovered check in regard to which piece is giving check (i.e. the hidden piece or the <moving piece.>)"|
|Jul-17-17|| ||patzer2: Categories of discovered attack:
Discovered check -- hidden piece giving check, while the moving piece attacks the target piece or square.
Discovered attack with check -- moving piece giving check, while the hidden piece attacks the target piece or square.
Double discovered check -- both the moving piece and the hidden piece give check or checkmate.
Discovered attack without check -- moving piece uncovers a hidden attacking piece without giving check.
