Wei Yi

Chinese prodigy Wei Yi turned 18 recently and celebrated by winning his first supertournament in Danzhou. Sending a clear signal – look out Magnus!

Wei Yi has been considered a possible challenger to Carlsen’s crown since he was 15; when he shocked the world by destroying top GMs (including Shirov) with beautiful, sacrificial play.

Now it seems like Wei Yi has taken his game up another level, demonstrating he can come out on top of a field with an average Elo of 2720, competing against Ivanchuk, Ding Liren and former FIDE World Champion Ponomariov.
