This game features an absolutely stunning "king hunt". The opening is a Sicilian Defence. It is arguably one of the greatest "immortal games" seen on a Chessboard. It was played by the young Chinese super-prodigy Wei Yi who was 16 years old at the time of this game. His opponent is the Cuban No.2 GM . An absolutely insane immortal chess game by Wei Yi ! - "Game of the Decade" is Susan Polgar's tweet!

(2). He is the youngest player to reach 2600 and the youngest to reach 2700.
Wei gained his FM title by winning the World U12 Championship in 2010. He won his IM norms at the Aeroflot Open 2012 B, and at the Asian Continental Chess Championship (2012) (a 20-game norm), becoming an IM a few weeks before his 13th birthday.
