A super hack

I quite like a good hack, and this one is one of the best of the modern era. 16 year Wei Yi builds up the usual king side attack, before kicking off the real fun on move 22 with Rxf7. After that it is like a playground game of chasies with the black king running to and fro. A "modern day Morphy" was one description of his play.
