Sep-20-15  Fish55: Wei Yi once again ran low on time it cost him the game. The time he wasted with 32...g4 and 33...Nxb4 left him unable to stop white's passed h pawn.
Sep-20-15  fisayo123: Extremely complicated game that could have gone either way with both players played some fantastic, eye-catching moves, with the highlight arguably being 19...f3!!

Wei Yi could have seized a (winning) initiative if he found 23...♖e2!, the point being after 24. ♔d3 ♖e7 25. ♘d6+ ♔d8 26. ♖f4 black is in time to give an unpleasant check with ♗e2+ , which would have been impossible after an immediate 23...♖e7?!

Obviously such nuances are almost impossible to understand in time trouble and Wei Yi was far behind on the clock the whole game after being puzzled by Ding Liren's 14th move.

29.♘d6+! was a nice resource which forces a very dangerous passed pawn that proves to be decisive in mutual zeitnot.

Sep-20-15  Marmot PFL: 19 Rxg4 looks good for white. Why take either rook when both are attacked?

I wonder why these two were matched. Was it by rating or do they want the Chinese players to eliminate each other?

Sep-20-15  breaker90: <Marmot PFL> It's how the brackets were set up by ratings.
Sep-20-15  5hrsolver: <fisayo123> I would add only in your analysis of 23...Re2. If 26.Nc4 Be2+. Or if 26.Ne4 then g5 and the h rook has to move away from protecting the knight.

  luzhin: Marvelous game. Wei Yi might still have won if he hadn't played the strange 31...Rg6. After 31...Nc7 32.Ree7 Ne8 it seems very hard for White to do anything, after which Wei's material advantage should tell.
Sep-20-15  The 64 Deadly Sins: This game was one of those "white if" types of games with some unusual moves. Nice!
Sep-21-15  AzingaBonzer: <luzhin> 31...Rg6 was actually all right. 32... g4? was the losing move.
