After a record-breaking Candidates Tournament, world number-two Nepomniachtchi faces world number-three Ding Liren in a battle for Magnus Carlsen’s throne after the current world champion abdicated his title.

  1. Why are they taking their coats off if they’re cold ?

  2. You’d wanna go for the W with white knowing even if you draw you still get a game 7 but if your black the likelihood of winning in game 7 isn’t good but drawing is so go for the W in game 6

  3. Should they have to go until black pieces wins?

  4. Finally i can play london without getting Bullied

  5. "I came. I saw nothing. And I conquered."
    — Anish Giri

  6. D5. Never to be forgotten. What a ridiculous 10-steps ahead-of-everyone move.

  7. I think the only person could have found D5 move or the reason is Alireza Firouzjs

  8. Mike Klein really is an embarrassment of an interviewer… I really don't understand why he's even there. "uh yeah, my question is for the winner, do you agree that you're a genius. Great thanks" like seriously, get this guy out of here… last time he literally asked them "whats your plan for the opening in tomorrows game"…. like does he not understand that would ruin him to divulge his prep.

  9. Lesson for us noobs: if you see a "clear win" for a player and they don't take it, 99.9% of the time, it means that you're wrong. Like, so many people said that Ding missed an "obvious fork" when he played pawn D5, when in reality, the bishop takes the knight if he tries to fork.

  10. Whoever ultimately wins this WCC will have definitely earned it

  11. Agreeing with one of the live chatters, it's harsh to have a conference poking questions into a game you just played

  12. They keep speculating on Dings body language. Well the guy could be lying too, you know.

  13. A London, wow! Not that I am not going to watch, I am, but I think this means that Ding is satisfied with a draw. I predict Ian will win, he better win or at least draw, and then win with white in the next game. Come on Ian I want you to win! Good luck from America 🇺🇸!!

    PS: it occurs to me that there is a lack of ambition to play the London in a world championship match, no less.

  14. how do they come up with the worst questions to ask 💀

  15. just like ninja hatori would say DIng ding ding ding ding ding ding

  16. Anish’s insights on the game are spot on!

  17. This game made me sooo happy I saw two analysis agad and levy and then I saw live commentary it's incredible

  18. Ding won the game when he played Pawn D5, and at that moment he had already calculated all the variables!!! That's how a GM plays.

  19. @teckelred "​You guys have to understand, these people are the ones who couldnt make it as real journalists." Still laughing at this

  20. Can someone explain why is there no Russia flag on the table?

  21. The weaving of the mating net with d5 by Ding and the acknowledgment by Anish that it’s sick shit and aesthetically pleasing and I couldn’t have found it ever and a topping by Howell to acknowledge the same is wow!

  22. 5 hours and watching in figures i was thinking chess is fun, well…

  23. FIDE is helping Nepomniachtchi with a computer and the FIDE president steals money from the federation and takes bribes.
    Nepomniachtchi, Nakamura and Carlsen have bribed other players in the past like Carlsen to Nepomniachtchi in the last World Cup.
    Nepomniachtchi, Nakamura and Carlsen and Nodirbek Abdusattórov have used computers in different tournaments.

  24. 4:19:11 they see d5 and can't figure out the idea. 4:23:11 they play the winning sequence near to the end. 4:26:11 and finally they figure it out. 7 minutes to find it with an engine eval. Imagine spending your whole life on chess only to be unable to spot a tactic like this. Lol.

  25. Anish is brilliant. It’s such a pleasure to listen to a consummate professional no matter what the subject is. A true pro.
    Hollywood portrays super-grandmaster level players as being borderline psychotic. In reality, it’s the exact opposite and Anish is a fine example of a super-grandmaster who excels in all aspects of life.

  26. Let's have a vote: Ian is pronounced Yan or Ein?

  27. Daniel Naroditsky is like the Bob Costas announcer of Chess


  28. it's crazy that stockfish thought d5 is an inaccuracy. Ding calculated deeper than a machine

  29. I think Nepo is the better player but I wish Ding will win 😊

  30. Question: why are there more decisive games.
    Nepo: I'd rather not answer that.
    Ding: well maybe we're not as good as Magnus

  31. 4:48:34 These journalists are thicker than pig shit, so much so that my man Ding, who doesn’t understand most questions(but still replies like a boss), immediately understood that the journalist repeated the very last question!

  32. First time London System played at WC.
    And then the player who using it win the game.

    Make London System has 100% winrate at WC. This day will remembered as a history

  33. NGL…I REALLY wanna like Ding, he seems like a super nice guy, but I just can't STAND watching him play, constantly falling behind on time, overthinking things.

  34. In the background of all this sits Magnus Carlson still undefeated. Reminds me of when Fisher didn't defend his title and Karpov was not considered the true World Champ for a while.

  35. One observation: after years of "industrial chess" in world title matches, this completely fresh, fantastic match is also a reflection of the zeitgeist that heralds a new era – China & Russia…

  36. Does the London System have more venom than a King's Gambit? It will be kids all across the world playing the london system in tournaments for here on out lol.
