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. Been a while since we had a photo challenge lol

  2. Antonio, your "have an excellent rest of your day" really helped me today (it's been a rough one). Thank you for being a beacon of positivity and class!

  3. Who also thought in the thubnail, that nepo slapt ding

  4. Jesus said to Pilate "You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above….. So here Magnus says to Nepo…. " You would have no power over the chess board if it was me playing the World championship

  5. And it is as of timestamp 0:00 that we have a completely new camera angle!

  6. The guy who made the first move is actually Wesley So's stunt double.

  7. Nepo showed just how strong he really is in theory, mid game and end game…..what a machine he is

  8. In thumbnail it looks as if nepo has put his hand in ding's mouth.

  9. In the pause the video moment – what about
    1. pawn to e6, QxE6,
    2. pawn to g5, then the F6 pawn captures
    3. Knight captures on G5, now the queen needs to retreat cuz the next move by the knight will check fork the queen. But if you actually move the queen to h6 or d8, it's mate in 1 (Qxf7)
    Assuming a scenario where after pawn to e6 you capture with the g7 pawn, that means doubled pawn and weak kingside, the king has to move to g8 or it's imminent checkmate in 2. Then knight to h4 (what move would you even do as black here? can't bishop to d4, can't queen to f8 cuz the f6 pawn hangs) into knight g6, let's say you capture with the pawn, queen captures with check, king moves back to f8 or goes to h8, in either case queen captures the h6 pawn with check, king moves to g8, check again with the queen on g6, king moves in either direction again advance the white h pawn to h6, black queen moves to d7 to prevent checkmate, white queen captures the f6 pawn with check, king moves to g8, rook to e7 threatening checkmate, queen captures rook, white queen captures black queen, you have to move king to f8 otherwise checkmate, queen g7+, king moves to e8, then you advance the pawn and it's checkmate
    In case you don't capture the knight earlier, then just knight e7+ forks the rook and you're screwed even faster since recapturing with the queen leads to the pawns on 6 hanging

  10. Best chess channel ever – with love 💕 from Poland 🖖

  11. the end game was case of a good knight for
    white vs a bad bishop for black in a closed position.

  12. I think that is FM Mike Klein who made the first move on game 5

  13. Without Magnus the title is basically a toss up.

  14. Thanks for being the one channel not actively giving away the match outcome in the title of the video.

  15. You go too fast through the game for a championship game, you can follow only if you know the moves and see the game before
