MOSCOW, April 20 – RIA Novosti, Andrey Senchenko. Arkady Dvorkovich, President of the International Chess Federation (FIDE), told RIA Novosti that the unusually high percentage of successful games in the match for the world crown between Russia’s Ian Nepomniachtchi and China’s Ding Liren was associated with numerous stressful situations.
The fight for the chess crown began on April 9 in Astana. After seven games, Nepomniachtchi is in the lead with a score of 4-3. The winner of the match will be the first player to score at least 7.5 points. A total of 14 matches are planned in a classical time-controlled manner, with a one-day break after each game. In case 14 matches end in a draw, the winner will be determined by a tie-break.
At the end of December 2021, Nepomniachtchi lost in the championship match to world champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway (3.5-7.5).
