The 2023 FIDE World Chess Championship is a 14-game match taking place in the St. Regis Astana Hotel in Astana, Kazakhstan on April 9-30 between Ian Nepomniachtchi and Ding Liren, who finished 1st and 2nd in the 2022 Candidates Tournament. Reigning World Champion Magnus Carlsen has chosen not to defend his title. The first player to reach 7.5 points wins, while a 7:7 tie will be decided by a playoff. The prize fund is €2 million, split 60:40, or 55:45 if it goes to a playoff. No draw offers are allowed until after move 40.

Each player has 120 minutes for 40 moves, then 60 minutes for the next 20, then 15 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment starting only from move 61. A playoff will consist of four 25-minute games, with a 10-second increment from move 1. If still tied, up to two pairs of 5+3 games will be played. If tied again, single 3+2 games are played, with colours reversed each game, until one player wins.

  1. Thank you for bringing us these game reviews Agad.

  2. There was a nice meme on the internet – when you prepare the whole night for the upcoming game, and your opponent then plays Kf8.

  3. I could tell it would be a draw just by your lack of enthusiasm at the beginning.

  4. U totally missed the point. Qe7 is an eeror. h5 first was very important. Ian found himself in a final with a lost tempo. But he was lucky to have forced combinations that lead to a drawish position.

  5. Well yeah, that’s what I use to think too (2:19) just bishop captures F2, but I indeed could never get something useful out of it and just kept getting into trouble instead 😄

  6. 2 seconds after Ian and Ding finishes Game 10…

    Agadmator: Hello everyone, welcome to Game 11

  7. Choosing a variation that Nepo has played as White was pretty risky if there wasn't a prepared novelty. Ding did not challenge Nepo enough so the game is drawn.

  8. “Ok, Black keeps the rook, keeps the pawn on h2, but he gets checkmated”


  9. Time management seems to be the deciding factor here.

  10. I love it!

    Ding: just take my pawn
    Nepo: I will be glad to
    Ding: happy?
    Nepo: Yes, very much so
    Handshakes are given 😂

  11. I saw the dirty finger in 16mins. time

  12. the moves in the description are from game 9

  13. That was a wonderful championship between those two.
