THE DUBAI SHOWDOWN

The match in Dubai will have 14 games, two more than the previous matches. This will give the players more room for probing and more chances to make a comeback. With more time to take risks and explore more aggressive approaches, this is promising to be one of the strongest world championship matches in chess history.

Challenger
Ian Nepomniachtchi

Ian Nepomniachtchi is the fifth-ranked player in the world, and the best current player from Russia – the heir of a long tradition of great champions. A distinctive, well-rounded player, he won the Candidates Tournament in Yekaterinburg with a round to spare. With a 4-1 score against Carlsen in their classical games, he is seen as someone who has realistic chances of snatching the title from the Norwegian and bringing it back to Russia.
