|Oct-04-18|| ||offramp: Ding v Duda. It sounds like two songs sellotaped together.|
|Oct-04-18|| ||whiteshark: <10.Qd2> is a new move here: |
<1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 d5 4. Nc3 dxc4 5. e4 b5 6. e5 Nd5 7. Nxb5 Nb6 8. Be2 Nc6 9. O-O Be7 >

|Oct-04-18|| ||BOSTER: Move d5 is the nice break in the centre.|
|Oct-04-18|| ||watwinc: I’m missing something huge here - d5 looks as if it loses either a piece or two central pawns. This is going to be embarrassing …|
|Oct-04-18|| ||chessdgc2: 23...Bd6! Perfect timing! Duda just might become a “Dudhist Chess Monk”|
|Oct-04-18|| ||chessdgc2: Black can’t play ...dxc4?? If he plays 24...f4 then 25. Bd3 is good for White. Black will probably move his Q, perhaps to f6? The game has become a minefield!|
|Oct-04-18|| ||Parachessus: A bishop sack by Ding and his pawn is on e7 after only 27 moves? What a game!|
|Oct-04-18|| ||BOSTER: Nxh7 and e8=Q|
|Oct-04-18|| ||watwinc: This could be a best game prize - what are the engines saying?|
|Oct-04-18|| ||chessdgc2: DING!|
|Oct-04-18|| ||watwinc: Is Duda really hoping for a self-swindle?|
|Oct-04-18|| ||BOSTER: Qxg8+ Kxg8 e8=Q Nf8|
|Oct-04-18|| ||Parachessus: My Stockfish app says 38. ...Nxe8 39. Rxb1 Nd6.|
|Oct-04-18|| ||devere: 26...cxd6 was the losing mistake. After 26...Bxe6 Black is no worse than even.

|Oct-05-18|| ||Caissa04: Ding, the Chinese superstar, now undefeated for 87 games! I believe record is Tal's 97.|
|Oct-05-18|| ||Caleb554: Ding has more natural talent and feel for the dynamics than Caruana or even Aronian. Maybe if Ding is mentally strong enough and focused, he can beat Carlsen someday.|
I am not too hopeful about Caruana winning world championship because Caruana's style is more closer to Carlsen. Caruana is a much better Defender but Carlsen has much more of a chance to take Caruana into dry equal positions and grind him down. I am much more hopeful that Ding can create sharp dynamic positions with equal chances where he can win.
|Oct-06-18|| ||ex0duz: Caruana is better defender than carlsen? That's debatable.|
But if that's true, then maybe it's just because he has more chances to defend since carlsen is the one grinding others rather than him defending.
But to convert a win VS Carlsen is also not easy. Imo I'd rather try convert a win vs caruana than vs Carlsen. You guys think caruana is the harder player to convert vs?
And gogogo ding! I was worried about him after his bike accident but it seems I have nothing to worry about.
The newest 2800 member and deservedly so. Well kinda redundant since no one gets 2800 by accident or "underservedly" since Elo doesn't work like that
|Oct-07-18|| ||sakredkow: This variation is new in the last few years but it's starting to get a workout. 8. Be2 had lost at least a few times before this game. Ding must have done his homework.|
|Oct-08-18|| ||Isilimela: Why is the opening Queen's Gambit "Declined" when at move 4 ... dxc4 is played ?|
|Oct-10-18|| ||Parachessus: Queen's Gambit Accepted Deferred?|
|Oct-13-18|| ||qqdos: According to the computer analysis Ding played several sub-optimal moves that gave Duda more than one chance to save the day. Is that the kind of form that Carlsen will forgive?|
|Oct-14-18|| ||ex0duz: <qqdos> what suboptimal moves?|
Like 31.Re1 which was more pragmatic and still 100% winning rather than 31. Qxf4?
This is an incredible attacking game from Ding, which he executed without hesitation or error. He had to walk a maze on a tightrope, and one error meant he would have fallen off and died(lost the game heh).
But he successfully navigated the maze and made his real piece sac(ie not temporary or where compensation is immediately clear and every GM would play it) work for him!
He's going to be a strong contender for the crown, i think Ding could beat caruana or shak in a match but we'll see. He already beat topalov and gelfand iirc.
