  1. Am I the only one who noticed Ian's "lackadaisical" attitude during the game?

  2. Level bar, together with amazing commentary when Fabi came along, made this event an epic story for the ages.

  3. Congrats to the new Champ, Ding Liren! Also, unrestricted live chat is a mistake, lol; comments got cancerous quick.

  4. china should make a movie about this
    from not even existing in the candidate to not winning the candidate and then becoming the WC
    just wow 👏

  5. When he played Rg6 everybody knew Ding wasn't messing around

  6. Nepo folded like origami. After he knocked the captured chess pieces on the ground you knew it was all over. Devastating moment. Congrats to Ding. Nakamura would’ve been WC if he didn’t underestimate Ding in the candidates. Nakamura didn’t realize how important the No.2 spot was. With Magnus declining to play for the crown, no.2 becomes eligible. Naka didn’t get first place and he didn’t think second place was that important. Too bad for the “professional streamer” 😐

  7. I really hope Ian tries again in the next championship because he can definitely win and he looked devastated. He deserves it, but he just blundered a lot in the last game.

  8. Congrats to Ding! Feel terrible for Nepo tho

  9. So happy for Ding, hope Ian wins the next one!!!

  10. Carlsen now motivated to challenge China as #1. Nepo gonna commit suicide. Ding finally gonna get laid somewhere in Hong Kong!

  11. Sometimes I wish press conferences after chess games will have better and more quality questions

  12. Nepomniachtchi will never be a world champion. He lacks the nerves.

  13. Sry but Ian deserved it more. Cus he actually won the candidates

  14. 43 ..Bb4 was a surprise as well. Fabi just said seconds before the move that 'Ding shouldn't get super ambitious here'. All the commentators were expecting a draw coming. I loved this game!!

  15. Happy that the guy with massive balls ended up winning the entire thing. That’s how it should be.

  16. quality of press conference = quality of whole match

  17. Ding Found Courage and Trust in his Heart! World Champion 2023!!!
