"Game of the Decade" tweeted Susan Polgar.

 

An Immortal!!

 

This game blew my socks off!! I came across it in New In Chess 2015#5.

 

If this is your first time viewing this game, then you're in for a treat. I have created 6 training questions from the game for you to solve.

 

Wei Yi is a 16 year old GrandMaster from China and the fourth youngest GM of all time. He is the 2015 Chinese Champion, currently FIDE rating 2721. He was the Under 12 Asian Champion and Under 12 World Champion in 2010.

 

Some are predicting him to be a future challenger to Magnus Carlsen.

 

Enjoy what I believe is to be considered an Immortal Game.
