  1. When he chooses to be brave under time pressure

  2. I'm not the best chess Player ,but the Android Chess App gave me alot good Parties and I'm getting better and better

  3. Why are press conferences in chess always so embarrassing?

  4. As far as I am concerned, both players are winners.

  5. Even the referee’s hands are shaking! This game was somewhat depressing at some point, nonetheless Ding wrote history with those pristine steady hands and the incredible mind of his. What a player…

  6. 4:38:04 Ding signaling to Ian for a better handshake, what a wholesome gent

  7. Imagine playing for second and third place after Magnus didn't play. Hilarious!!

  8. Anybody knows about Dings relationship with his father?

  9. Hopefully chess will see a lot more interest (and money) coming out of China as a result.

    America had a Fischer boom, China may have a Ding boom. ✌️

  10. Ding struggles to find the correct words but he poured his soul into answering the question from Maria (min 5:06:38). Congratulations!

  11. Watch tie break game 4 several times and running engine analysis.
    2 times Nepo can win the game, but he couldn't find the move. He can draw the game, but he didn't.
    Congratulations Ding Liren.

  12. Of cause the win is amazing, but I am also really impressed how much englisch Ding has learned since the candidates

  13. I guess that move from Ding declining the repeation

  14. That was insane amazing job Ding Liren!

  15. Don't want to sound mean, but Nepo gives me some Private Paula vibes.

  16. Congratulations to Ding Liren on becoming the New World Chess Champion!!!!!!!!‘😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊

  17. I was rooting for ding all along, felt he was the underdog. But damn, it was absolutely heartbreaking to see nepos reaction to losing game 4. His shaking hand trying to grab the pieces but all falling off the table is just heartbreaking to watch

  18. Ding Liren Calculates like Alireza Firouzja!! Hence, in Blitz Mode that kind of Calculation is Lethal to the opponent!!

  19. 4:28:25
    This moment will forever stay in my mind…. Purely GIGACHAD move…

  20. You can do it ding i believe in you!

  21. At 4:25:33 I see white bishop takes C5, bishop takes bishop, and white queen takes C5. White gets 4 points for 3 and snags one of those passed pawns.

  22. I'll never recognize a championship decided by playing blitz or rapid as valid. Being the faster thinker was never a component of a champion and how many great games never happened because of a loss on time. The 1972 championship and the Kasparov/Karpov 1984,86 and 1990 matches were very exciting and true tests to determine the world champion. The 1984 event that was stopped was truly great but the stoppage was an omen of the changes to come. The computer changed the game forever and for some improved it but others, such as myself, destroyed the greatest game in history. But I hate cell phones and social media too. In 100 years will the games today be analyzed and talked about like the games of Morphy, Capablanca, Tal, Fischer, Kasporov and many more. Time is money, as in rules to speed up baseball and tennis, and the classical format is now just a memory. Today's players are brilliant, learning from past masters games and the computer but it seems the world has lost yet another event that captivated many. Chess is more popular than ever so I must be wrong but opinions are never wrong.


  24. I dislike the knight design. They have been using this design for a number of WCCs?

  25. When Nepo's hand was shaking he knew he had lost everything

  26. Only in chess is a great victory as crushing as the defeat

  27. I wish they would just show the match and not move the peices around themselves, very confusing

  28. I felt like I was taking a hard exam while watching. The amount of stress they were carrying was surely a deep burden before, during, and after the championship

  29. Ian lost for 2 free pawns. Why he did not cut c5 pawn by Bishop? So that game will be easy to fightback I think. Very sad moment. Heartbreaking😒

  30. I'm chinese but I hope Ian can come back to win this next time. He deserves it. My heart was broken seeing his last moment struggling.

  31. Im in the live chat. Witness of history.

  32. Fabiano and the team are excellent commentators and really enjoyed the in match breakdowns
