Sep-04-17  fisayo123: <That's what chess is all about. One day you give your opponent a lesson, the next day he gives you one> -- A very famous chess player once said.
Sep-04-17  Marmot PFL: Both games Wei Yi showed nerves and barely won this one although he played well at the end. Maybe he can settle down, win the tiebreak and beat Rapport (which would be an interesting match).
Sep-04-17  Marmot PFL: 35...Nxf4 looks much better than Qg6.
Sep-04-17  Keyser Soze: He's still very young. Some slips are bound to happen form time to time. Nice win regardless
