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. Nepo was a little smug a few times. No wonder that happened.

  2. Never once have you made me feel inferior due to my lack of chess knowledge. I thought I liked that other guy I was wrong. Subbed

  3. Ding perform superlly from loosing position to nuetral then finding winning moves

  4. the matchfixing is real. how can there be so many blunders? Ian didn't play this poorly vs magnus.

  5. actually they played a couple of moves after re6

  6. With the risk of getting people booing at me, i must say that i'm really sad to say the match fixing is also present in chess. There are truly no limits to fixing events in any sport.

  7. Kinda sucks that Ding isn’t “winning” himself, rather Nepo is just blundering games away. I want Ding to win with a dominating performance.

  8. I enjoy seeing all the detailed lines, it is a great learning experience, i dont know why people don't. Keep it up 🙂

  9. Nice Video.
    Excellent Commentary

  10. I really like Nepo but I can't feel sorry when he blitzes out moves. It's not the first time. Someone on his team should tell him that.

  11. A special thank you to Magnus for not stinking up this match with his presence.

  12. Agad sounding like a disappointed Dad when Nepo played f5😭

  13. For those of you who don't know who Dimash is (guy who made the first move) do yourself a favor and search him on here.

  14. Imagine being probably the second best player in the world and a typical "your name"-move is considered a terrible blunder… ouch

  15. Had Nepo sacrificed Bishop would things have changed?

  16. "It will completely change your day, your week, your month… It will be a life changing experience."

    Also: "… and a multi-instrumentalist, whatever that is. I guess he can handle multiple instruments at once, or maybe not at once but okay…"

    Agadmator in mood today 😆

  17. This was a classic game I'm wondering if Queen d6 instead of Queen h4 can hold the game

  18. “He can handle multiple instruments at once” 🤔🤨

  19. Sheer luck.. But when Ding was down in the match I was sad. Now I am sad for Ian.😢😢😢

  20. Poor Ian. He can´t stop his bad habit of playing too fast in critical positions. He had a better position vs Magnus too, but went crazy on b4(!) in game 6, and then imploded. Here he blitzed out moves after being + 6, and lost his patience.

  21. Karma.
    In the Candidate Tournament Nepo and Hikaru agreed to an early draw. Giving Nepo first place and Hikaru a chance for second. Ding proved after that stunt, to be a true Chess Champion in heart and mind.

  22. From my perspective, this is typically Nepo’s blunder move. 😅 Not the first, neither the last one. Many players did similar to Nepo.

  23. Agad: Multi-instrumentalist = 1 man band.

  24. #suggestion Include the time left for each player after each move in a small graphic so you dont have to explain it (even though you do a great storytellers job of this)

  25. Chess is so brutal. Rooting for Ding but still in pain after Nepo's loss.

  26. I watched this game on and off at work and it really was crazy to see how the game developed from a slight advantage to Ding with a "play for draw as white opening" into a Leela level b5 line by Nepo for the win – into the Rg8 miss by both players and it's like they both misunderstood the position from there on out with so many inaccuracies back to back for the rest of the game until the blunder

    really fun to get such a wild game in a WCC match but Nepo looked completely broken.. when he blundered a pawn against Magnus in the previous WCC he just broke for the rest of the match and i can only imagine it being worse when you throw away your advantage like that, hopefully he recovers so we get some great chess these final days
