Wei Yi vs David Navara – 2016 Tata Steel Chess Tournament

Wei Yi plays the d3 system in the Ruy Lopez in Round 9 of the 2016 Tata Steel Chess Tournament against the Czech Republic’s super-talent David Navara. It’s a classic struggle of better pawn structure vs the bishop pair. Will it be Wei Yi’s better structure or David Navara’s bishop pair that prevails, or might neither be the most important factor since the kings reside on opposite wings? Timing is everything when king hunting!
