This is a Round 6 game between 17-year supertalent Wei Yi of China, and the Netherlands #1 Anish Giri from the 2016 Bilbao Masters Final. It's a Berlin Ruy Lopez with Wei Yi throwing a bit of a curve ball on move 4. Instead of his usual d3 reply to the Berlin, he castles which invites Giri to enter the open variation of the Berlin. Giri accepts, Wei, Yi chooses a Bf4, Rd1 and Ng5 system, and by move 22 the position is simplified to each side having only 1 piece. Would it be Wei's knight, or Giri's bishop that would prevail in the endgame?
