Nov-25-19  paavoh: A very well conducted end game, indeed something to learn from. Looks so simple.
Nov-25-19  torrefan: Indeed. After Ding's 54. ....Bf7 i thought Magnus was a goner
Nov-30-19  YesChess1010: Bad opening by Ding, he just dropped a pawn as far as I can tell
Dec-02-19  Everett: <Nov-30-19 YesChess1010: Bad opening by Ding, he just dropped a pawn as far as I can tell>

Not sure if you’re joking, yet if you are, please look up Ruy Lopez Marshall Counterattack to get more info.

Good luck!
