Feb-17-09  brucejavier: wow! i neva knew Wesley So had a rating of ELO 2610 at the age of 10, no wonder hes always big news
Feb-18-09  pulsar: <brucejavier> apparently an error; Wesley just recently breached the 2600+ level. :)
Feb-18-09  brucejavier: maybe chessgames need to adjust it. Thanks anyways pulsar.
Feb-18-09  pulsar: Your welcome. I don't know how CG can manage these small details if they do--there might be too many games for them to keep tab. Wesley's live rating is now around 2640 or so...
Apr-14-10  arjay: what? 2610 at the age of 10? amazing! but 31...h6 is not
Dec-28-10  crazygorillas: I don't why GM Wes did Qd7 on the 16th move but I know why Negi played g4. Simple very simple.
Aug-14-13  MarkFinan: Move 23 for whites a.sneaky little shot, but blacks 32.b4?? Is awful although its already over by then.. Great game by two little kids :)
May-11-14  rogl: I don't understand why Negi didn't save his knight with 26.Nb6. Am I missing something that makes this impossible?

  OhioChessFan: <rogl> no, but it turned out pretty well for White anyway. 32...b4 was really bad but Black might have been in time trouble.
Dec-14-16  wilfredo munoz: Should Black refrain from taking the Knight and instead played 33 ... Qf6, the Black K would then be survived by his R, B & two pawn islands through 34 Rf3 & 35 Rh3, provided Black plays Qxh6. Mate in 10 is realized after 34 ... Qe7 35 Nf7+ Kg8 36 Qd5 Qe2+ 37 Kb3 Rf8 38 Ng5+ Kh8 39 Rh3+ Bh6 40 Rxh6+ Kg7 41 Ne6+(D) Kf7 42 Qb7+ Ke8 43 Ng7+ Kd8 44 Rxd6#.

Black to move. 41 Ne6+
