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. The captions translating Nepo’s name as nipple is too disrespectful.

  2. Ding should not play cautiously with white Saturday. He needs to keep the pressure on Nepo until he blunders.

  3. goes to show you how magnus is MOUNTAINS beyond the rest! He leaves and we have a showdown!

  4. i would like time control so we can appreciate the game

  5. This worldchess championship series is by far the most exciting in the last 10 years ❤

  6. Scientists: "How fast is the speed light?"
    Agadmator: "HELLO EVERYONE"

  7. You are correct I am wrong because I say says:

    Still not over the sadness of game 12

  8. I have begun to rely upon agadmator's commentary as a great lesson for ideas and the foundations of chess champions. It is greatly appreciated as the world of chess would be amiss if he had taken some other course to pursue.

  9. I hope Ding plays to win in the last game. Nepo played faster so far and might have an advantage in tie breaks with less time on the clock…

  10. Ding should wear a pink shirt to the tie breaker.

  11. This is the best result heading into Game 14. Plenty of blood has already been spilt over the board (6 results!!), but the scores are tied. The best player in the world may very well not been playing, but it has certainly been an exciting World Championship with crazy rich positions like the last Game.

  12. The ridiculous over the top faces Nepo makes for seemingly no reason is why I want him to lose. The guy is a clown lol

  13. what's with "sorry about that…" everytime? 😅😂

  14. You forgot to do the fast walkthrough game thing at end, for me i prefer it this way, because then i will have to skip the fast walkthrough after seeing your great lines and jokes to finish the video with have a good rest of your do 😊

  15. Why didn’t Ian try Bc7-b6 to force a trade of the bishops? I missed that part of the analysis on the broadcast

  16. it’s not a world chess championship if magnus isn’t playing. Kasparov already covered this.

  17. Have you tried Alt + Space + X to size the window to the screen it is on?

  18. Nepomniachtchi decided to send his lucky brick-red shirt to dry cleaning.

  19. Surprise there is no Sicilian defense in Ding's game. Maybe it's too double edge.

  20. A silly question to Aga GM ..
    "Does the clock starts when the invited VIP makes the first move?'

  21. Game 14: Ding's Immortal = Carlson Bong Cloud Opening, and win!

  22. China's president predetermined the result.
    Screenshot this for the history books

  23. I like that Ding was trying for the win even with Black. He will definitely try for the win in the final game when he has white. Unfortunately his attempt this game was not all that impressive

  24. 3 games. Classic chess. Coin toss to decide who is white first, then other players is white twice. First to win a game is champion. If no-one wins a game then neither is champion, in order to encourage some risk taking. It would be fair and a great viewing spectacle. Or arm wrestling. 😂

  25. If Ding goes for d4 or c4 Nepo must go all gun blazing by King's Indian Defence.

  26. 14:53 So yeah, here you resign because there is no good way to do it -> Game ended in a draw

  27. Both of them are to afraid of going all in, playing save chess. I missed when chess was a bold game, with queen sacrifice for checkmate, now with stockfish in GM head, they are afraid of blunders, and they still blunder like hell. Chess used to be about people messing with either player, playing mind games, doing moves that shocks.
    I hope new GM are more bold, and ignore the stupid engine and play more aggressive,

  28. I am still not giving up on this game. Maybe a pure draw. But why not pawn to e3. Now it is only attacked once. White plays bishop to f4 attacking the pawn but then black has bishop to b4 attacking the rook and the suddenly unguarded A pawn. So then what does white take the pawn with? Two pieces hanging. I would assume it take the pawn with the bishop, but then black can just go bishop c3 taking the knight. If White were to take the bishop then the knight on d3 still wins back. OK…know I am missing something but I don't get why back has to insta resign here.

  29. How many of you guys are going to watch the 14th game live.
