    Good fighting effort by Yifan on board 1. White appeared to be a clear pawn up for no counter-play but got caught off guard. Shows the importance of fighting on in difficult positions even against much higher rated opponents!

    Looking at the whole game could white's loss be partly attributed to long-side castling?

    At move 20, though white a pawn ahead, white's king appears to me to be naked to the world and ripe for black's pawn attack. If white had castled king side there would be no such danger of a pawn attack without Black also weakening it's own defence. I admit not having read many books nor ever searched an engine but only going on experience.

    White's move 22 maybe should have been rook-c1. Also white had to spend an extra move to get the king to the safer B file.

    Don't know why AC wants me to offer an opinion when he's had one from an FM but anyway, on special request ...

    (i) I don't think white was a clean pawn up at any stage, black always had counterplay, perhaps even sufficient
    (ii) no of course 0-0-0 does not lose the game by itself, and it is not even a bad move at all, the game was most likely lost by white trying too hard to keep material on to win and allowing too much attack later on
    (iii) AC's suggested 22.Rc1 is a ?? because of the obvious ...Bxa2.

    Due to white 0-0-0, black's move 14 ... B-b4 is a no risk dismantling of white's defence, ensuring white wasted moves (14 & 15) by queen to keep pawns on files a and b intact for the king. White's long side castling made it's king-side minor pieces irrelevant for the rest of the game, there was only defence after 0-0-0. White's move 10 B -g3 could be wasted and took it off a more active file.

    Gets confusing when this player has the same given name as the world's top female player, but there is no guarantee that Yifan is always a feminine name.

    Common issue with Chinese names. I can recall having 2 Chinese students at my uni (1 male, 1 female) who had identical names and surnames.

    I removed the initial 30. Rd7 Bb5 31. Rc7 Rd8 sequence since there was something wrong either with the move order or numbering of moves!
    maybe was it 30 … Rd7 instead of 30. Rd7?

    interesting endgame indeed!
