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. At 1:55, isn't that a free pawn at e5? Nxe5, if dxe5, bxh5, so free pawn, is this viable?

  2. This is the Ding I know, the problem is that he takes time to warmup to tournaments. Hopefully he starts playing his game from now on

  3. wow, how very exciting! way to bounce back Ding!

  4. To quote Dickie Vitale (college basketball commentator): "Uh oh… Uh oh… UH OHHHH!!…"

  5. “Knights are tricky bastards”
    -Nepo after the game probably

  6. At 1st I thought he was knocking the other guys but he specifically said “I’m getting better” which makes me like him more. I assume he has public phobias. Good job Ding! I’m Glad Rapport lent some of his genius

  7. I thought Nepo's f4 pawn was going to make it awkward for Ding to develop pieces on his King's side but Nepo's blunder was a real clanger and instantly decided the outcome of the game.

  8. Nepo on PC: I don't play Rapport I play Ding. Correct. And BTW there where bigger "blunders" on WCC and also some misses like Ananad Carlsen, when Annand missed a win after Magnus blunder.

  9. New player mocking old masters lacking accuracy and new gen players blundering like children……

  10. What a game! Congrats to Ding! And thank you for the video 😉

  11. you can clearly see that none of them played like a future World champion but what can we do about that right?

  12. Ding literally gobbled Nepo alive after Nd4 !

  13. The only magic we'll see in this Battle will come from the China man. Nepo aint that guy.

  14. Ding was very happy that Nepo won with Black, Magnus was right. Ding's definitely stronger, despite having less resources.

  15. Antonio is so full of shit. Anish said that Ding was shaking but it was unnoticeable. I reverse and double check and the actual footage is Les than half of a second so it's impossible to say that Ding was shaking. Was only a comment by Anish and this pathetic loser only uses words he heard from Anish in hopes to be recognised by the elite players.

  16. "One big mess!" Antonio's reviews are the best! Excellent analysis mixed with deadpan expressions that capture the moments perfectly. Thanks for the hard work!

  17. I hope god will favour him for nxt.10 years.
