|Nov-06-17|| ||schnarre: ...OUCH! White was effortlessly rolled over here! |
...White's early Queen sortie was a big mistake. Coupled with lack of development, defeat seems assured.
|Nov-06-17|| ||alfamikewhiskey: Beautiful and entertaining game.
(No offence, but I think <effortlessly rolled over> may be the least apt description imaginable here.)

|Nov-06-17|| ||offramp: <FSR: ♫♪♫ Ding, Ding, Ding, goes the Liren!
Clang, clang, clang, goes the bell!
Ding, Ding, Ding, goes the Liren, and dispatches your ass to hell! ♫♪♫>
No natter how often you post this, it ain't gonna become a ding.
|Nov-06-17|| ||Gilmoy: The pin-breaking Q-sac[*] for a minor piece swarm reminds me of V Mikenas vs Kupreichik, 1973. In both cases, it was a Bb4 and some aggresive central pawn thrusts, kicking the K+Q around without rest.|
[*] Not really a sac of a full Q, as Black promptly regains two pieces, and the attack surely wins back a 3rd, or mates.
|Nov-06-17|| ||fisayo123: This is surely the game of the year so far, no? There have been some awesome games this year (as my games collections suggest) but this is hands down the best I've seen.|
|Nov-06-17|| ||fisayo123: Also in a way reminds me of MVL's masterpiece against Robert Fontaine a decade ago: R Fontaine vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2007|
That was one of my favorite games ever and this tops it for me.
|Nov-06-17|| ||parisattack: Such a beautiful game. Ding Liren has always been creative and sharp tactically. I've been following him since 2009.|
|Nov-06-17|| ||ajiteshjaiswal: How does black answer 18. Nxc6|
|Nov-06-17|| ||Sneaky: 18.Nxc6 Rd2+|
|Nov-07-17|| ||ajiteshjaiswal: Thanks Sneaky, just realized that b2 is going to queen after the exchange and white has no way to stop it.|
|Nov-07-17|| ||kevin86: Black's game is strong that he can sacrifice the queen and still win.|
|Nov-08-17|| ||Imran Iskandar: A king hunt of the highest order.|
|Nov-08-17|| ||whiteshark: ...and here's Daniel King's enjoyable video-annotation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sjx...|
|Nov-09-17|| ||Moszkowski012273: Why the hell would you even consider 17.Ke2??|
|Nov-10-17|| ||Kapmigs: What if 19. Qc1 instead of 19. Qc2?|
|Nov-10-17|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: "The player's greatest art consists in exploring the possibilities of bringing the game to a position in which the normal relative values cease to exist."
|Nov-12-17|| ||Jambow: The Chinese Morphy!!! Brilliant attacking game pieces hanging and ignored creative attacks with minor pieces, queen thrown to the wind. No doubt the Magnum opus thus far in his brief career. Now for Magnus in St Louis!!!
|Nov-13-17|| ||Domdaniel: Game of the century? The decade, at least ... what is most deeply impressive here is not so much the depth of the original Queen sac by Ding, but the sheer amount of complex effort that it took to win after that. A phenomenal performance ... and Ding's little-known opponent put up a good fight too.|
|Nov-13-17|| ||Domdaniel: <Eduardo Bermudez> That's an excellent Botvinnik quote, and a very valuable idea.|
|Nov-21-17|| ||brooks909: <Eduardo Bermudez>
A remarkable Botvinnik quote! Where do I find it?|
|Dec-20-17|| ||cro777: The Game of the Year (New In Chess Magazine 2017/8)|
Ding Liren: "This is the most beautiful game I have played so far in my career!
I felt very excited after this game. During the next days the game and the variations kept popping up in my head all the time. Even when I was lying in bed at night, positions would appear in my mind, and new tries by White that I had to refute. Every time I would try to find a solution and prove that the sacrifice was sound."
|Dec-20-17|| ||cro777: <Domdaniel: ... and Ding's little-known opponent put up a good fight too.>|
Ding Liren: "My opponent was Bai Jinshi, a talented junior, born in 1999. I know him quite well. He studies very hard and he has many ideas in the opening. It was clear to me that with White he wanted to play for a win."
|Dec-20-17|| ||Chess Is More: I get a Chris Matthews tingle up my leg when I see this game.|
|Jan-07-18|| ||Eduardo Bermudez B.: Chinese chess showtime !|
