2023 World Championship Match

 For an event that many people had written off before it had started, the 2023 World Championship Match is attracting a lot of attention. This is mainly due to the fact that the first 6 games have already seen 4 wins, 2 to each player. And while this may be a sign of nerves for both players, it does make a change from the previous few matches, where a drawn game was the most likely outcome.

So far in this match Nepo has taken the lead, only to see Ding equal the score with a subsequent victory. Such was the case last night, with Ding turning the London System into an attacking weapon.
