Many chess fans anticipate a thrilling World Chess Championship finale when World Number 2 Ian Nepomniachtchi faces Ding Liren. They are even at 6 1/2 in Game 14 of the Best of 14 series. Thus, a single point from either player on Saturday will earn them the title.
Ding stopped Nepomniachtchi from winning the championship; the score was even at 7-7. As a result, they will play four rapid tiebreaks on Sunday. Organizers hope that they will have a winner after the games.
According to sportsbook pay per head reports, rapid chess has the same rules and regulations as classical games. However, players have less time to make moves. In Sunday’s playoffs, players will have 25 minutes. They also have a ten-second increment for each move.
There will be a two-game playoff with a time restriction of five minutes + three seconds for each move if the title is still tied after four quick games, and if necessary, there will be a third two-game playoff with the same time control.
Until a winner is determined, games will be played with a time limit of three minutes for each player and two seconds for every move.
Due to Magnus Carlsen, the defending champion, choosing not to defend his title, this World Championship is somewhat different from prior editions. In 1975, legendary American grandmaster Bobby Fischer was the latest to relinquish his world crown.
According to the price per head sources, Nepomniachtchi was Carlsen’s replacement. He has been in a tight battle with world No. 3 Liren, the highest-rated Chinese player ever. Both Ding and Nepomniachtchi are making their championship debuts. However, Nepomniachtchi has never won a title before since losing to Carlsen in 2021.
