12-year-old Ding Liren defeats future 2800+ in 23 moves

Featured is the game between 12-year-old Ding Liren and 11-year-old Wesley So from the 2004 U12 World Chess Championship. Only 15 players have ever crossed the 2800 barrier, and long before that incredible feat, three of them happened to compete in this very event. On display is a nice attacking game by the young Ding Liren, who along the way and on more than one occasion restrains himself from a tempting aggressive move.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
