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.
Ian Nepomniachtchi showed up to Game 9 with a new look (haircut) and a new opening look (1. c4) for this match. However, it was Magnus Carlsen that won the 9th game by capitalizing on Ian Nepomniachtchi’s major error on the 27th move. With just five games left in the World Championship Match and ahead by three points, Magnus Carlsen is almost certain to retain his title.
Now, without further ado, let’s take a close look at game 9 of the Carlsen-Nepomniachtchi Match!
