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. The critics of your channel are lame!

  2. How is it possible that Ding's prep matches were not played on accounts set to private so the games could not be searchable in the database?!

  3. Finger crossed for Ding in the last 3 matches

  4. I keep saying this over and over- Hikaru would've definitely given us more action than ding if he hadn't lost his chances to ding in that annoying blunder he made in their last game… that move should still haunt him, especially when he's somewhere watching what these guys are playing

  5. It really looks like the draw mechanic is so easily abused

  6. Seen more interesting games in a Class C tournament. The game of the match to forget.

  7. "They are happy doing it". Have you seen Ding's face? lol

  8. Why does no one ever go for the Italian Game? All the good stuff happens in the Italian Game, including Agadmator's favorite opening.

  9. what a waste of a game…..and to look for a draw at the beginning with White is a crime

  10. Are you using chess pro from the Unity asset store?

  11. The photo of the opening move was the best I have seen!

  12. Thanks AGA! Making a 4 hours video in 10 minutes!

  13. 7:03 "After takes takes takes takes takes takes takes takes takes takes takes takes takes takes takes Ra2 it'll basically be a draw" -Hiankaru Nakapomniachtchi

  14. I feel so bad for Ding, really wish that leak didn’t happen.

  15. Thanks to MC for making this possible, I salute you Magnus

  16. If Ding's prep really leaked he's in big trouble, unfortunately. I hope he has another ace up his sleeve with white next game.

  17. You should go over Eric Rosens 2nd game in title Tuesday in his most recent video vs GM Rustamov. Game starts at 9 minutes, and Rosen sacs a ton of pieces for a crazy mating attack. He called it his best game of the year #suggestion

  18. Ding looks so stressed! Reminds me of Spassky

  19. so many "captures captures", agadmator couldn't be happier 😀

  20. Did you notice the body language of Ian and Ding? Ian is relaxed and laughing, Ding is all tensed up. That puts Ding at a disadvantage.

  21. Ding should resign the whole game. It is unmatchable.

  22. I remember I had that position and I even don't play chess 🙂 So for pro players not to ever have that position is a bit unbelievable

  23. You have the wrong PGN in the video description (2nd game in row now).

  24. 5:38 Interesting version (instead of Ne3): dc:?! ed:, cb:! Kh8 (rather: Ra7), Bd5: Rb8, b4 Nb7, ba: (1:0)

  25. World engine line memory championship 2023

  26. The length of the video is a spoiler on its own 😂 Too short… must be a draw

  27. 15 captures, nice. Thank you for the video!

  28. It's funny that one of the contenders is shaking every other game and doesn't know the tournament rules. I think that is shitshow

  29. relax while watching historical chess matches on my channel. ☝️

  30. I think one is scared and the other is glad.

  31. Around 20 moves of theory and preparation. And later on super careful play. Basically stockfish 15 drew against itself. lol.

  32. Wow, a boring draw in a World Championship game. What a waste… I really hope Ding bounces back.. It is a weird thought, Nepo as world champion after he got crushed by the real number 1 last time…..

  33. Hi Agadamator – could you please consider presenting (with commentary) all the decisive games in the 1927 World Chess Championship Match between Capa and Alekhine, or share a link to those games if possible? Thanks

  34. Which one of them will regret this wanted draw, we'll know soon.
