Ding and Nepomniachtchi all-square before final showdown

Ding Liren got a dream position with Black after the opening of Game 13, but one over-aggressive move and one real inaccuracy allowed Ian Nepomniachtchi right back into the game. In fact it was Ian who had the chances after Ding sacrificed the exchange, but ultimately the game ended in a quick draw by repetition. The scores are level going into Saturday’s final classical game, when Ding has the white pieces.
