Game 14: 2023 World Chess Championship | Ding vs Nepomniachtchi
Featured is Game 14 between Ding Liren vs Ian Nepomniachtchi from the 2023 World Chess Championship match. We follow game 8 of this match with another Nimzo-Indian Defense. Ding deviates with 5. Bd2, and surprisingly enough we experience another fishing pole idea out of this opening, this time with a knight on g5. Ding quickly goes from optimistic of his attack to defensive after Nepomniachtchi’s 13th move. Going into game 14 the players are tied at 6.5 points each. The 2023 World Chess Championship is a best of 14-game match being played in Astana, Kazakhstan. The first player to earn 7.5 points will receive the lion’s share (60%) of the approximately $2.2 million prize pool and claim the most prestigious title in chess: ‘World Chess Champion’.
