Greetings chess players. My name is Chris Torres, and this is Daily Chess Musings’ Special Coverage of the 2021 FIDE World Championship Match between Magnus Carlsen and Ian Nepomniachtchi.
In Game 11, Magnus Carlsen scored his fourth victory of the match and in doing so, secured the overall victory with three games to go. Ian Nepomniachtchi played the white side of the Italian Game but blundered on his twenty-third move forcing the World Champion to find the best response or risk losing the game himself. Magnus Carlsen spent just 79 seconds finding 23… dxe3 to take a winning advantage. Twenty-six moves later, Ian Nepomniachtchi resigned the game which gave Magnus the 7.5 match points needed to retain the title of World Champion.
Now, without further ado, let’s take a close look at game 11 of the Carlsen-Nepomniachtchi Match!
