A triumph of modesty and persistence

Post date 02 May 2023

Probably many of you do not follow chess and do not know that the new world chess champion is Chinese Ding Liren.
The Chinese are the world champions for the first time in the history of chess. In a very combative match, probably the most interesting with the least draw, that was played in the in Astana between the Russian Ian Nepomniachtchi and the Chinese Ding Lireng , after three weeks of grueling battles in which the advantage shifted from one side to the other, Ding won in overtime.

The result in the regular match was equal, so the winner was determined by a 4-game rally at an accelerated tempo. Of those four games, the first three ended in a draw.

The most interesting part is the fourth party. In that game, the Russian had a small advantage, and when it seemed that it would also end in a draw, Ding went for it all or nothing, refusing to repeat the position and going into the unknown and taking a risk, which paid off. What I want to mention, dear friends, is his example that we should not give up in a worse position, but we should go all or nothing doing what you love.

What prompted Ding to play for victory in a worse position?
He unwittingly stated this after the end of the match: "With his modesty and persistence, Ding has been playing chess since he was 4 years old and is constantly looking for ways to improve, and he doesn't think much about the title. In the tense situation of the last game, he probably didn't think much about the title or the prize but did what God created him for: he played chess.
