Jan-16-15  fisayo123: Wei Yi draws first blood in a pairing that could very much become the first of many.

  Penguincw: A nice tactic coming up: if 32...Qf8, then 33.Bc5 (deflection move) Qg7 34.Bd4, and black is forced to deflect away from f7 or lose a piece.
Jan-19-15  MindCtrol9: This super young .GM is a STAR!! What a beautiful mind! I hope he will keep getting stronger and his games be remembered forever like Tal's games.
Jan-15-16  Kasparov Fan: I would point two moves which I think were weak 11...b6 I couldn't understand the reason behind this move I think 11...Re8 with the idea of 12...Bf8 would have been better and 20..Bxd6 giving up the dark squared thus enhancing the dark square weakness in black's position but up until this point his position looks grim thanks to white's passed pawns on b and c files.I guess 20...Rd8 would have been better follow up to this move however eludes me for the moment. All in all a great game for Wei Yi not so great for Sevian.
