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. Ding play so well but …..ah the key move ….!!!

  2. Agadmator: The guy who made the ceremonial e4 first move looks like a Bond villain.
    Me: If he had played e3 instead he would look like a Bong villain.

  3. I think this is Nepo's match to lose. Why?

    1. Prior experience in a world championship, against Magnus no less.
    2. A long legacy of Russian champions and national support to back him up.
    3. He seems quite relaxed, whereas Ding seems rather nervous.
    4. (At the moment) A one-game lead, with six games (at most) to go.

  4. Revolutionize your chess experience with Radical Chess – the next-generation platform that merges chess with blockchain technology for an innovative and exciting gaming experience.

  5. Very exciting game! Sad that Ding didnt capitalize the advantage.

  6. Teddy says the next variation is the deepest move…

  7. I think Rapport is leaking the info to nepo. I dont know anything about them and is just judging them by their looks.

  8. Agadmator adds so much to some of the most exciting World Chess Championship games – Thanx

  9. this game reflect the chess itself, tactic, strategy, emotion, and psychologhy

  10. Ding missed the opportunity to win few times this fascinating game and it is not a shame, every GM could but this particular passive move of the bishop is a huge mistake rather characteristic for weaker players. Anchoring bishop on the pawn on the 7th rank was a must. It occured to me at the first sight, and I am just an amatour solving for fun not so difficult chess puzzle. I was really surprised he chose differently. Maybe it will hunt him for some time… Nepo stole somehow this draw, wow! I could say that it was probably the most brilliant blunder in this match so far.
    By the way, Ding's attack with an early bishop sucrifice was (grand)masterclass.

  11. 'Tal's style wont work at highest level'
    Nepo : hold my inaccurate perpetual

  12. My guess is carlsen calculated everything until now and made those accounts with his friend in order to make this chess champ interesting 🙂

  13. That was such a bold queen move wth! Ian def has some big balls to make it.

  14. This was the most exhilarating game

  15. I see most major chess games for the first time through your videos.

  16. Agad, what's the significance of Queen takes f6 on your t-shirt?

  17. “Mining” industry Bond Villain puts nitro in pawn on E4 (classic assassin move, don’t fall for it)!!!💣💥

  18. Damn, they are really making this championship interesting!!

  19. We need to have semi hidden accounts for GM's that hold their games between each other from release for a year or so to allow for better preparation.

  20. Hello agadmator please release video about hans Niemann vs yuri solodovnichenko

  21. Got the feeling Magnus would not have missed that win.

  22. The games are making me more and more unexpected compared to any Championship defended by Magnus. Say I didn't expect a bluff for NOT capturing a rook and free the promotion square can work in a championship game. How could I believe a potential champion did not take the rook? There is a lot to calculate for sure, but any amateur would take that for the risk of being checkmated. Maybe that's why they are super GMs.

  23. Thanks for showing moves only becoz i m not interested in understanding other lines. Thanks for providing this option to us so that we save our time.

  24. Ding having 2, probably 3 winning positions and not capitalizing in any of them wad hurtful to watch live.

  25. Ding is definitely a very very strong player but he's mentally weak right now at WCC level…

  26. What I love about this match is both of them actually played like how human will play since they know that their opponent will make human move as well. In that case Nepo's bluffing with Qh4 is actually a beautiful human move, and ding just fell for it. I imagine, if Nepo played Magnus or even Fabi who both played like machine in their respective WCC match, he wouldn't even dare to play Qh4.

  27. 0:08 thought he was gonna say because the game is still going on lmao

  28. rook to d2 as Ding-2 move. almost, almost.

  29. Ding really dont deserve a World title, we never see World Chess Classic many blunder he made

  30. Those doubled white C pawns are just the sleeper cells of the black army 😅😅

  31. Loving the short version at the end, really helps seeing the bigger picture

  32. Only those of low intellect believe in coincidence

  33. I really do not understand what you said at 09:12. The black king cannot capture the knight anyways since it's white's turn to move at that point??
