If you’re following this and find it boring then chess is not for you. This is the most epic world championship.
One of the best world champion title matches I've ever seen. Emotional rollercoaster. I'm sure Ding still didn't mentally concede and will strike back.
Btw amazing bluff by Ian with the perpetual.
we understand why king magnus didnt wanna play with these amatures.
It's over. Ding's nerves have gotten the better of him. Nepo wins. It was a good run tho.
Getting a draw as white may take a toll on Ding's mentality moving forward to the next matches.
I am sure it's still far from over
I can see a ding victory coming in the later days.
Notice how Ian blundered the moment Anish said "my anaconda".
Nepo bluff is a masterpiece.
The interviewer at the end seems so rude to djng
29:46 "too easy"
Ian was Brilliant in this game.
Queen h4 bluff 3:41:00 and knight sacrifice on f2 4:01:50 are just astonishing brilliant moves. Hopefully Ding can recover psychologically from that
These questions are rediculous.
5:24:25 Nepo answers Agadmator whether he was bluffing with the rook or not
Nice commentary!! Tania, Anish & Ari Aster
I feel like Dings issue is that he's looking for the best move in every position rather then just looking for a move that keeps him in a winning position
This was an embarrassing game
Such a terrible Russian translator, you guys couldn’t afford to find someone a little more competent for the world chess championship?
Isn’t Fabi supposed to be part of commentary team as well? Why is he not joining?
Winning by Dinging?
I have an idea to de-fuse the tension of WC match. In regular tournaments, players get up and walk around to watch other players' games. This helps to relax them. Why don't we have another match along with the main match? For example, what if we had both men and women's championship at the same time? This would help the players to relax!
did they find out about the prep leak during the game?
I thought I was a procrastinator… Ding gives me a heart attack with his time controls
Ian might be a very very good chess player, but seems to be a bit of an asshole outside of the board!
Absolutely fascinating. Chess is the greatest strategy game…
classic ding W
Chess is suppose to have been invented in India yet there is not a single indian guy competing in this tournament.
At critical moment in the game..
Anish Giri: "The passed pawn is never gonna reach d8.."
