A beautiful photo of both of them.
The priceless quality of experience and the intelligent spirit and willingness to learn of youth....Priceless!

I think it's an even nicer photo when you consider that the younger man has won. Kudos to Lapshun for going over it.

That's a very impressive game from someone so young, especially since this is the type of position in which young players often self-destruct. Not much in the way of surface tactics: just a smooth (yet nonroutine) positional crush!
