  1. So if hikaru took the draw and won the candates he would be world champion !!

  2. I miss the times when he said NepomniAtchtchi

  3. Congrats to Ding! He has been playing HEROIC in these matches! Offcourse feel bad for Ian, but thats just life man he will be there again the next time around.. one of the best chess players around.❤

  4. I think a better caption would be DING WINNING

  5. Nepo will be distraught knowing he missed SO MANY chances because he plays so fast. He should've won in the classical format, but just didn't take his time. Missing an opportunity in rapid is more understanding because you don't have all that time to think, like Hikaru said. I feel for him.

  6. this is a true underdog story congrats DING Liren!

  7. After the game 12 blunder, it almost felt like Ding's victory was inevitable.

  8. DING CHILLING 🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐

  9. i thought Ian was gonna have a seizure after he lost last game.

  10. I think Magnus bowing out is pretty honorable — give other people a chance, you won this shit 10 years in a row. Go stream drunk with the sisters!

  11. Now Ding must hand his winning prize to Winnie! That's how it works in china!

  12. If hikaru played WCC, we will witness Bongcloud in the board👻😂

  13. We all know Magnus is the real wold champion….

  14. This was the moment where Ding said it was “Ding chilling time” and he ding chillinged everywhere

  15. Ian threw his tie at last he was so fustred with himself

  16. You GOTTA be the next champion Hikaru!

  17. The title shows how much Hikaru hates Magnus lol. Today is about Ding, you should start with him! 😉

  18. Means 1% of what it would mean if Ding were the highest rated player

  19. Worst case scenario for him is magnus comes back and take back his title in the next world championship

  20. Please hold the face for at least 3 seconds before the "Hello Everyone"😂😂😂😂

  21. So hard to see Ian almost got a heart attack when he realized that he lost the championship. I wanted Ding to win but I felt bad for Ian.

  22. CONGRATS TO DING! Both players did their best, it was an amazing match! DING CHILLING🥶🥶🥶🥶

  23. Great recap! It was an awesome, heartstopping conclusion, and congrats to Ding!

    It's pretty cool seeing Fabi and Hikaru commentating on this match considering it wasn't too unlikely for either of them to be in that spot, with good early performances at last year's Candidates

  24. Ding chilling 😂😂 congratulations to Ding for winning the world cup 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

  25. I was rooting for ding since the start GG🎉

  26. im quite glad someone won the wcc match with the black pieces something that can't easily be pulled off

  27. Question for Hikaru: I've constantly heard that Magnus won't return without a significant change to the format of the wcc, but I don't think I've seen an explanation of exactly what changes he would want before returning? Removing the candidates system? Changing the tiebreak? More games per match? What exactly is he looking for in a revised WCC?

  28. Magnus would have crashed both Ding and Nepo in all games…what a pity…
