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. You should also add a bar showing which colour is better at the moment so the new players can understand the game better

  2. I don't think that was impossible to calculate. I was watching the event live and Giri once Nepo played that queen move, spotted immediately it was a bluff and blitzed out the moves without the use of the engine. And Giri in the number 6 in the world, not even preparing for the world title, so I think as Giri said too, that the previous game put ghosts on Ding who was putting all the attention on the clock because he missed something like 5 moves to win the game on the spot.

  3. One Love, One Family! Abundant Joy & Celebration! says:

    Nice game!🎉

  4. I need to try those bluff with my 600 ELO, it will be fun.

  5. Ding seems to kind of wilt in certain situations. "Wilt" being a relative term.

  6. Just wow agad….just wow…..❤❤❤❤

  7. Agad, dude, something crossed my mind: if you put in past WCC games in an engine and check the bar, how often does the bar swing like this game? I suspect these guys don't care well about their moves: for God's sake, who will leave her rook like Jan did?

  8. thanks Antonio. Enjoyed the long and short versions.. Great to see yoy better

  9. Why is this championship taking too long to conclude?

  10. Ding is so frustrating to support.
    As incredibly talented as he is, he is equally incredibly fragile, both mentally and emotionally.

  11. I really enjoyed this one! The video is absolutely not too long.

  12. How good is the chess if ding blunders the endgame multiple times?

  13. I feel like this game is heavily influenced by Rapport's style.

  14. who would have thought we could have this in a classical game

  15. Can we expect detailed analysis of Game 7 soon.

  16. Its worth to learn chess just to follow this Channel

  17. Only if nepo gave this much chance to magnus he (MC) would have obliterated him.

  18. 13:53 damn I thought it was fianchettoed bishop and then check with taking pawn on E5 which discovers the rook. Although Nepo simply could have moved his rock after the fianchetto I suppose

  19. And it was in this video that Agadmator shows off his cool merch and gains +10 agility

  20. Agadmator.. you sound like a bond villain

  21. Thank you for adding a summary at the end of these WCC games because these videos cover a lot of stuff, so a summary at the end really helps.

  22. Magnus didn't trust nepo when he blundered and thats the difference.

  23. Ding,with that refusal to take the rock it reminded me of myself when I was a child. I never excepted sweets from strangers

  24. Damn, poor Ding. Even I saw that taking the bishop was bad because it took the rook off the past pawn.

    Prior he let Nepos bluff fool him. This poor kid has so little confidence I just want to hear Rapport giving him the pep talk of the century.

  25. Ok, so I have to ask: the Qxf6 on @agadmator’s t-shirt, is that in the French Rubinstein, or?

  26. Ding has the better preparation, Nepo is slightly better player, but neither one is championship material.

  27. His stole all his wealth so yeaaaa he is a Bond villain…..welcome to a capitalist

  28. As much as I want Ding to win, Nepo won't miss with white

  29. Agadmator: I don't want just the moves. I want you to go as deep into every line you can.

  30. One of the few channels where I can always give the like before watching the video 😅

  31. Thanks for short version. In an out in less than a minute

  32. Finally, an exciting world championship match!! Gooo Nepooo!!

  33. Congratulations on the excellent Fide question.

  34. The Jews of fide wont even let the Russian flag be displayed for Nepo

  35. Nepo is literally taking Ding by the hand into a deep dark forest where 2+2=5 and the path leading out is only wide enough for Nepo. #MikhailTalReborn.

  36. Nepo is like the quarterback that does great and you just know is going to screw up somehow. After watching his blunders with Magnus im not convinced the rook was a bluff. I think hes a space cadet.

  37. If some of you are wondering, his shirt Qxf6 refers to the game of Rashid Nezhmetdinov vs Oleg Chernikov, one of the greatest queen sacrifice ever, maybe the best, of course Agadmator has a video about the game 🙂

  38. Ding dropped the ball on this game, he had it. Unlucky.

  39. @:59 you say he looks like a Bond villain, I say he looks like he could be the husband of professor Umbridge from Harry Potter.. just straight up menacing looking.. that or he missed the casting call for Dr. Robotnic in Sonic..
