  1. "Chess is not for the faint of heart!" – Irving Chernev

  2. In a post-game interview, Ding said he knew Nepo blundered in Game 8, and he knew he is going win….but suddenly he lost motivation. In fact, it bothered him 😔 he thought what’s the point to win the game like this! normal people would be overjoyed- a win is a win! Somehow his emotions toward Nepo’s blunder is not normal ppl would have. Eventually he lost his focus and game 8 drifted away into a draw
