Mar-02-16  siggemannen: hmm, how is this winning?
Mar-02-16  pkkandel: <siggemannen> 20...Qxd5 allows 21.Bb6 mate.
Mar-02-16  Per: Brilliant!
Mar-02-16  outplayer: This game illustrates very well what is called the chinese school of chess.
Mar-03-16  Shams: <outplayer> How is that?
Mar-03-16  ndg2: Amazingly short execution. Btw., what happens after 14...Kg7?

  OhioChessFan: 14...Kg7 15. Nf4 threatens a fork of the Royals at e6.

15...Nf8 16. Nh5+ Kg8 17. Qf4 threatens mate on f7.

17...Qe8 18. Nf6+ Bxf6 19. exf6 and Black's defense is in shambles.

I agree. I certainly did not see it, but it might be possible that Wen Yang saw it at move 16. I doubt it, though.

Apr-17-16  domradave: Andy Soltis in today's New York Post says that not taking the rook would have lead to a draw by perpetual check.
Oct-26-16  antonioaguilar: This is a pretty interesting game, not because of the tactics but because of the position.

After <13.Rxf7!!> White is winning in all lines.

But, how did Black mess it up? Well, he didnt defend the b7 bishop. Instead of <9...Be7> a move like <9...Qc7> would have kept on Black on the game. However, even after <9...Qc7> Black's position looks suspicious, White has a lead in development, is ready to play on the kingside if neccesary or even on the queenside, meanwhile Black is facing a dilema, where will he castle? The queenside is not stable in my opinion, White could open lines with a4. And castling in the kingside seems like its daring White to mate Black, just as in the game!
