Every Russian Schoolboy Knows - Selected games from the Candidates 2020 - 6

Opening: C77: Ruy Lopez

Player(s): Nepomniachtchi, Ding Liren

This 7-part video series presents one game per each of the seven rounds that were played before the tournament was stopped. While we all hope for the resumption one day, the recovery may take a long time. As I now sit idly, confined to my home, there's no better time to reflect on the games, drawing from my experience of commentating live for one of the Russian-language websites.

6) A critical win by Ian Nepo over Ding Liren send the opponents to the opposite ends of a tournament leader board. Once again, Ding was tested in his trusted lines of the Ruy Lopez, and one more time he had to face a subtle novelty of the enemy preparation. Nepo was able to create a passed pawn on the Queenside, practically forcing Ding into looking for chances on the other side of the board. The chance did come, but the Chinese GM missed it. An important victory for Nepo.
