Wei Yi: Immortal Chess Game

This round 2 game from the 6th annual “Rural Credit Cup” held in Danzhou, China easily makes the list of best chess games ever played. 16-year-old super talent Wei Yi of China plays white against Lázaro Bruzón Batista of Cuba. The chess game was played on July 3rd, 2015 and it has already been pegged by many akin a “21st Century Immortal Game”, and some reaching as far as a “Game of the Century”. This is truly one masterpiece of a game. Wei Yi plays white against Lázaro Bruzón’s Sicilian, Classical Scheveningen where play follows theory until move 21. It is not long after that Wei Yi lures Lázaro Bruzón’s king straight to the center where a blend of sacrifices to buy time, and successive quiet moves leave the black king position perilous. The meteoric rise of Wei Yi continues to impress the chess world, and talk has already surfaced about him being the future rival to the current world chess champion Magnus Carlsen.
