Sergey Karjakin singlehandedly takes Russia to victory in unusual match with China

In Heixiazi, the first part of the unusual-format Russia-China match ended. The second half runs from 12-17 December. 

You will recall that each team had to give a playing order, which cannot be changed. The first two players met on day one, with the loser being knocked out, and the winner playing the opposition number two the next day, and so on. On the first four days, four Chinese players appeared at the board, and they all lost - Sergey Karjakin beat three in tie-breaks and one in classical chess. 

The Russian beat Wei Yi, Ding Liren, Hi Hua and today Yu Yangyi. Consequently, the other Russian players Evgeny Tomashevsky, Alexander Morozevich, Yan Nepomniaschi and Dmitry Andreikin, are all still yet to appear. The effect of the rules is that, in the second half of the match in December, the only remaining Chinese player, Wang Yue, will play until his first defeat.
