Aug-15-19  csmath: Yu draws in winning position. But this is not so easy to see even in classical. The plan is Be2-Bh5 and white king goes through (zugzwang) or if black exchange the bushops then white gets easy opposition and wins again.

Both Yu and Ding Liren saw this after the game but hey, Yu missed two-move checkmate against Aronian and also drew that game as well.
