After the first five games of the 2021 FIDE World Chess Championship, GMs Magnus Carlsen and Ian Nepomniachtchi are tied with 2.5 points each. Players will enjoy a full rest day before game six, giving them time to adjust their strategy for the next game of the match, which begins on Friday, December 3 at 4:00 a.m. Pacific Time/13:00 Central European Time.
Carlsen will wield the white pieces and try to go for his first win of the match. Will the world champion repeat his 1.e4 opening from game four, or will he go back to 1.d4 he chose in game two?
