After Ding failed to win game ten of the 2023 FIDE World Chess Championship with white pieces, he is under pressure with only four rounds left and he must win at least one game to force a tiebreaker, we examine the results, score, game 11 date, schedule
The two most crucial things for Ding to do if he wants to build a comeback are rest and preparation after yet another draw in game 10. If things go smoothly in round 11, Nepomniachtchi will be confident about his chances to realize his dream of winning the chess world championship.

2023 FIDE World Chess Championship Round 10 result, match events, Round 11 schedule, date, time, venue, & format
GM Ding Liren tried hard to balance the deck by switching to the English Opening, but his opponent was up to the challenge and swapped into a drew rook endgame. With a current advantage of 5.5-4.5, Nepomniachtchi is two points away from winning the FIDE World Chess championship. Given that Ding admitted that Ian’s ninth move had come as a surprise, he actually did well to reach that superior endgame in Game 10. The game went on until move 45, when the players were down to bare kings.
Ding will now play with the black pieces in round 11, which many believe will be against him. On the other hand, he must be cautious not to exert too much pressure because a defeat would leave Nepomniachtchi in position to become the 17th World Chess Champion. To Ding’s credit, the world championship match has benefited from the surprise aspect, which has been both invigorating and exciting. Should another surprise succeed on Monday, he will tie Nepomniachtchi at 5.5-5.5.
