After some of the most exciting world title games in recent
history we finally have a new Chess World Champion, Ding Liren.

And thank you Ding. I won £10.50 for a £5.00 stake.

Here are the tie breaks games from the Chess World Championship.
It starts with a four-game match with 25 minutes + 10 sec increment.

Ding Liren - Ian Nepomniachtchi, Tie Break Game 1 (a draw but a good game.)

In that game Nepo left his Queen hanging but it could not be taken.

26. Rxc7 Nf3+ {(26.Bxf3 Bxf3 mate with Rh1)} 27. Kf1 Nxd2+ 28. Ke1 Nxb1 0-1

I found an RHP game where we see this idea. Queen sac and mate on h1.

perlenbacher - Epoy RHP 2010

Black played 18.Qxh2 + the came to Rh6+ and then Rh1 was checkmate.

Ian Nepomniachtchi - Ding Liren, Tie Break Game 2 (a draw that had some tricky moments)

That game featured a two Rook and Knight ending. An RHP game with the same pieces.

coyote214 - stardom1 RHP 2011

White played 20. Rhe1 OOPS!

Ding Liren - Ian Nepomniachtchi, Tie Break Game 3 (A draw, the tamest game so far)

No RHP example for that game.

Ian Nepomniachtchi - Ding Liren, Tie Break Game 4
Ding had the upper hand and I liked his position. However he seemed to rush
his attack (I know the feeling) and Nepo beat it away.Then Nepo and everyone
else thought we were going to see a three fold and onto the blitz games but Ding
played 46...Rg6 and suddenly Ding’s passed pawns looked threatening. Nepo tried
a barrel loads of tricks but to no avail. Dings held his nerve and won the game.

Ding with a minute left has just played 46....Rf6-g6, It looked crazy due to h4 and h5.
