    See:

    https://www.chess.com/news/view/lian...ss-upsets-2439

    "Really impressive is Awonder Liang who is in second place on our leaderboard based on game points and performance rating. Still just 14 years old, Liang bested Fabiano Caruana yesterday and Hikaru Nakamura on Saturday. He's also won game of the week once and come in second once."

    His performance rating on 24 games is 2740. Actual ELO 2545.

    I really enjoyed the Nakamura - Liang game. Clear strategy and great endgame play. (bishop over knight and active king)

    Awonder Liang - Fab Fabiano Again clear strategy. Work a pin, pushed a passed pawn, won a piece and then Nh5! (threatening checkmate in two). Nice.

    China vs The World

    From ChessBase.com

    "The Arcadia hotel in the Chinese city of Liaocheng is playing host to a match between the Chinese National team and five representatives from the rest of the world from the 7th to the 9th of April 7, 2018. Of the ten rounds of the match, the first six were played on the 7th of April while the remaining four will be played on April 9. April 8 is reserved for a chess seminar. The match uses the Scheveningen system wherein each player plays all of the players of the opposing team twice. The time control for the games is 10 minutes plus 10 seconds per move from move one.

    Liaocheng is about 400 kilometres south of Bejing."

    https://en.chessbase.com/post/china-vs-the-world

    The combatants and their final point scores:

    China

    Ding Liren 6.5
    Yu Yangyi 7
    Bu Xiangzhi 6.5
    Wei Yi 5.5
    Li Chao 4.5

    Rest of the World

    Jan-Krzysztof Duda 4.5
    Etienne Bacrot 2.5
    Daniil Dubov 5.5
    Vidit Gujrathi 4.5
    Samuel Shankland 3

    Perhaps a bit unfairly, I have chosen three games of Daniil Dubov to show. Two of them are against Wei Yi, the other against Ding Liren.
