Nov-27-15  schlechter2006: Good luck to Wei Yi I hope to see more of your games.

  jith1207: Chess24 shows more games and rounds have happened, Wei Yi has beaten Yangyi Yu to qualify for the next round (Semis?). I hope the Kid gains more confidence along the way. His 108-move win over Yangyi Yu in a practically drawn position was one to watch in the third tie break (probably blitz), as the opponent blundered a Bishop blocking move after playing equally well for 100 moves!! Wei Yi pounced on the opportunity and booked his place in the next round.
Nov-29-15  fisayo123: <jith1207> I believe its the finals. <Wei Yi vs Bu Xiangzhi>

  cro777: Wei Yi defeated Zhao Jun 1.5-0.5 in Round 1 and Yu Yangyi 3.5-2.5 in Round 2 (semifinals). His opponent in the final is Bu Xiangzhi.

In the first game of the final in a Symmetrical English the players agreed to a draw after 31 moves.

Tomorrow (November 30th) will be the last round of the tournament. Wei Yi will play with the white pieces in the second classical game. In case of a draw the play-off will follow.

  jith1207: Thanks Guys! I was confused by the grouping of women's player games along with men's in same rounds in some web sites. I am not knowledgeable about much of their players (though fairly better about men), so this tournament has been an eye opener for me to their talent.

  jith1207: So, Wei Yi wins the final and becomes the King of China. Avenges the loss against Bu Xiangzhi a month ago in chinese division A league.

All Hail The King and The Future Emperor!

Nov-30-15  fisayo123: Wei Yi wins the tournament after destroying Bu Xiangzhi in yet another impressive display!

  cro777: Is there among these Chinese young talents a new Wei Yi?

National team head coach GM Ye Jiangchuan analyses the decisive game of the final Wei Yi vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2015 :

Nov-30-15  sonia91: Congrats to Wei Yi!

It's worth noting that the winners of Kings and Queens tournaments are the reigning Chinese champions.

Nov-30-15  AzingaBonzer: How coincidental.
Nov-30-15  jphamlore: Like I said, in retrospect everyone will realize Wei Yi was born to play the Ruy Lopez. He should have been playing it as White years ago. Now he might lose his chance to play in the Candidates both this cycle and next.
Dec-01-15  Pulo y Gata: Thanks, jphamlore, for this invaluable insigh.
Dec-01-15  Absentee: <cro777: Is there among these Chinese young talents a new Wei Yi?>

Is the old Wei Yi too old for you?

Dec-01-15  lentil: <domdaniel> FS pulled your ... In mandarin 'Wang' means 'King'.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: <Absentee> A new Wei Yi means a new young super-talent.
Dec-01-15  Dr. Overlord: <Strongest Force: Wang = Dick. As in Dick Clark...he he he...:)>

Wang Yue means you have a dick
Wang Hao means how is your dick

I understand Chinese names better now.

Wei Yi vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2015

Dec-01-15  Pulo y Gata: Politburo's call. The games must not be easily accessible.

  offramp: Just 10 games played in an 8-player knockout tournament. The Chinese can minituarise anything!
Dec-03-15  sonia91: I submitted a correction slip to change the name of the 2 separate touraments after round 1 games were uploaded, but in the home page the old names remained, and the following rounds games still are under the event old wrong names
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: I heard that Bruce Jenner and Elton John showed up, asking "Is this the Queens tournament?"

Dick Clark is a spoonerism of Click Dark.

Jan-24-16  optimal play: "Say something in Chinese"

Maria Elena: You speak no Spanish?

Cristina: No, I uh studied Chinese.

Maria Elena: Chinese? Why?

Cristina: I thought it sounded pretty.

Maria Elena: Say something in Chinese.

Cristina: Me?

Maria Elena: Mm-hm.

Cristina: Um... ni hao ma?

Maria Elena: You think that sounds pretty?

Cristina: Well, maybe not the way I'm pronouncing it of course, but...

Maria Elena: If you ask me, Chinese sounds strident. It's like a drill to the head!

Juan Antonio: Speak English, Maria Elena.

Maria Elena: You ever hear them in the kitchen of a Chinese restaurant?
