The World Championship is still balanced and although Carlsen has so far been the one who has risked the most, it has been the challenger who has had the best opportunities to gain an advantage on the scoreboard. But let’s remember that in the second game, where Carlsen opened the game, he showed an ambitious novelty that put the Russian player in many difficulties. Therefore, the fourth game of the match, in which the world champion will once again lead the white pieces against Nepomniachtchi, is awaited with great expectation.
The match will be played from November 26 to December 15 in a best of 14 games, and if they end in a 7-7 tie, a tiebreaker will be played in rapid games.
