Sep-14-13  asianwarrior: There is nothing special ceing mated by a very superior opponent.
Sep-14-13  twinlark: What a game.

Black defended extremely well and was close to winning around move 27. He went sadly wrong on move 39 just before the time control with <39...Ne8??>, as Wei Yi's combination was only good enough to force a draw, as White was basically running out of pieces.

The knight was needed on f6 to defend the other knight.

After 39. Bxa6:

Black has to avoid moving the f6 knight or taking the bishop and leaving the c6 pawn unguarded. Unfortunately he does both.

For example <39...Re8> pinning the rook was probably the most straightforward move to salvage the game as the pin pretty much dissipates White's attack.

If <40. Qc7 then bxa6> and White has nothing better than a perpetual as the knight on d7 is defended.

If <40. Re8+ Qxe8> and White has nothing.

  luzhin: 46...Kd7 47.Qc6++ is an almost comical mating position.
