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 your excellent and expeditious covering of this world chess championship and chess in general. I enjoy your analysis and your choice of games you present on your channel.

  2. If Nepo, in the end, wins the championship, it should be relatively easy to get over game 12's blunder. But, if not…

  3. Here's hoping the final classic game is decisive. To me, a rapid tiebreak still feels like sacrilege, but I get that we don't want a drawn-out marathon (like 1984)

  4. a very cautious game by both, I was just waiting for Nepo to play another bludder move…..but glad he took his time and kept level

  5. This video is produced instantly after the game finished.. 🔥

  6. A move only played by amateurs but also top tier chess 😂

  7. Ding, hundred wins in a row, Liren will take this!

  8. To absolutely no one's surprise, they drawed the game

  9. i think we have not seen a sorry about that yet this world championship, unprecedented move!

  10. Am I the only one who tries to figure out the result based on the facial expressions in the thumbnail?

  11. They send agad the moves ahead of time so he can work on thevideo before the game is played.

  12. What i conclude from this WC IS that nepo completly outprepared ding but when it Comes to over thé board calculations ding Always Comes on top because hé IS much more talented

  13. Man is writing down lines and alternatives as the game is being played. Already has hours of analysis done when the game ends. The dedication is appreciated!

  14. Hi Agadmator, if Ding plays KE6, will it change the outcome?

  15. “He should consider playing b4 but only consider it”😂 gave me a good chuckle

  16. i am definitely watching the whole match tomorrow!

  17. Las aventuras de Vito, el gato más bonito says:

    such a thriller. hope game 14 delivers a grand final !!!

  18. Ding should wrap this in Classical. He won’t win in rapid he is just too nervous for rapid chess

  19. Ding's got White in the decider. What more could he ask for?

  20. You should have discussed Knight e2 and f4 after King f7…This feels nearly won by white…

  21. What's up with questions in russian during the conference?

  22. So hard to follow the game when you do 10 move variations for every pawn move lol

  23. Me:….Wow…this one ended quickly
    Agadmator: Hello everyone!!😊

  24. The chess may speak for itself, but I'm glad we have you here to recap for it

  25. Both are unworty of winning world championship. I will go even as far as call this situation pathetic. Take make so many blunders during games when there are so many good options. Magnus is so much better than them. Hikaru and Magnus would have been interesting. Hikaru doesn’t make these kinds of blunders. I am the one who watches these games from start to finish. Magnus would straight up dominate them both in this level. FIDE is destroying this classical world championship. They need to listen to Magnus and adjust the system

  26. Its going to go either way….Good luck to both players.
