Well, seven boring draws so far. But as everyone always tells me, blame the format, not the players - they can't be expected to take any risks in this type of event  Wink

Apparently, Nepo blundered in game 4. One win for Ding. But I have missed each live game since my bed keeps throwing pins on me. Thanks for Agadmator.

Big chance for Nepo in the first game, he is no Bobby Fischer.

There's quite a good discussion taking place on France Echecs. Ding vs Nepo qui sera le prochain champion du monde d'échecs ? https://www.france-echecs.com/article.php?art=20230324064948947 . Of course it's in French.  Wink

Should be an interesting match.
Nepo likes unclear complications and sometimes forgets his preparations - true to name - , while Ding is a retaliator who can't be easily bluffed. Remembering how Ding crushed Carlsen's King's Gambit with the Schallop defense (1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Nf3 Nf6), I'd love to see a couple of KG games.

Hi All, there has been a subdued build up to this, perhaps a little unfairly to the two players. It won't be the first time that the player most people believe to be the strongest, is not the champion. What do people forecast for the result, for the style and openings we will see ?
For the result, I think Nepo is the favourite, benefitting from the experience of facing Carlsen and what will be anticipated to be incredible back-up. However, I'm not sure why but I'll be supporting Ding !
In style, Ding seems the more conservative but did used to play in a very attacking style. The most interesting scenario would be for Ding to take the lead when we can see if Nepo can come back.
Openings will be fairly expected I think, Ruy Lopez when Nepo is white and the English and possibly Catalan, when Ding is white.
