Prefer King and Knight vs King
Enough about the leak. Ding did not lose, he drew for the first time as black.
THEY DONT CARE ABOUT ANSWERING QUESTIONS ITS EXTREMELY AWKWARD AND THEY HAVE NO CHARISMA NOTHING TO SATISFY THE AUDIENCE! STOP ASKING THEM QUESTIONS! ITS CRINGE!!!
Reporters still trying to milk the cow on the cheating scandal, but there's nothing there. Also I love how modest Ian is when he says "You've gotta be kidding". Nonetheless, although modest, it is true that it's hardly decided, so it was a very honest, polite reply.
I'm super excited to actually catch the game while it's happening, I'm waking up for work now!
There's no need for Nepo to be so rude in the press conference some times.
Nepo is a coward playing for draws like this after getting a 1 point lead. He is ruining this championship.
Tania Sadchev voice is so annoying
Ffs remove her already and bring other commentator
Oh this one is a short one
“To improve your game, learn the endgame before anything else. Because the endgame can be learned and mastered on its own, the middle and opening games have to be learned in relation to the endgame.” _ Jose Raul Capablanca
Weird press questions, as usual… unfortunately.
Probably Nepo will win the championship (I estimate it to be a 60-40 chans). The are som reasons for that. But remember, Ding have had higher elo-rating than Ian. Anyway, I have no real favourite, but often I wish the underdog success, and in this case it means Ding.
So in summary, with 3 games remaining,
Ding must win 1 game, and not lose any game, to be champion. At least one win and two draws.
Ian must not lose a single game, he can be the champion with 3 draws.
Ian: "good question"
Ian thoughts: "terrible question"
Bro is she stupid?😂 What does she think Ding will try to accomplish in the next three games? He will obviously try to win by any chance or else he could just give up now. Nepo has to defend perfectly or else he will have to struggle again for the win.
I hate draw
People need closure like me hate draw
Very funny response from Ding – "I would prefer a longer match!"
I predict a London system for Game 12 🙂
Not the most exiting game, but the commentary is great.
Can someone please get Tania out of there?
I think the most difficult part of the match for players and fans is not the games, but sitting through the TERRIBLE press conference afterwards
My lasting impression of this match will be Ding just sitting there, staring at the board like somebody stole his sweet roll.
If Magnus isn’t playing why does this matter
Here is a great income producing idea – a calendar called THE LADIES OF CHESS – a photo of a different female GM or IM for each month of the year dressed scantily clad in skimpy swim suit attire – January – Dina Belenkaya, February – Dorsa Derakhshani, March – Tatiana Kosintseva, April – Elisabeth Pähtz, May – Alexandra Botez , June – Anna Rudolf, July – Anna Zatonskih – August – Andrea Botez — and so on till year's end. * I guarantee a minimum of one million calendars sold world wide at $20 USD per calendar.
relax while watching historical chess matches on my channel. ☝️
Wonderful coverage. May I kindly pls suggest: 1. LIVE Board Bigger. 2. Dark squares lighter bc, for instance, you cannot tell sometimes which piece is on spot.. 3. all else excellent great thank you !. PS. I think Ding is from China i don't remember. Where is other gentleman from Ian? Thanks.
Also, perhaps to show: 3. Who's turn it is next 4. What was clear previous move from previous player and 5. who's playing w/ what color (I know these perhaps should be fairly obvious, but to lte tunners-in, it may be very helpful.
