  JimmyRockHound: He threw the kitchen sink at him!
Nov-06-17  actinia: 7. Qxd4? is the stinker. it goes against all known chess principles
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.

  alfamikewhiskey: Beautiful and entertaining game.

(No offence, but I think <effortlessly rolled over> may be the least apt description imaginable here.)

  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.

  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
Premium Chessgames Member
  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.
Premium Chessgames Member
  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.

  whiteshark: ...and here's Daniel King's enjoyable video-annotation:
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?

Premium Chessgames Member
  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!!! Go Ding!!!

  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.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: <Eduardo Bermudez> That's an excellent Botvinnik quote, and a very valuable idea.
