Yes, he will live
No, he will die :(
You can't predict oda or the future so don't try!
I hope he dies. I mean, we've seen enough of his fighting skills, and I doubt he can be much stronger than what we've seen, so I prefer him dying and then a lot of characters being affected (Luffy, Whitebeard, ...) and some flashback chapters of Ace's life back from his training days with Luffy until present times.
How bout this ? Ace lives but WB dies while trying to save him. Or not.
If Ace Dies Im going to stop reading and watching One Piece. Itachi is dead in Naruto and that is what destroyed the manga. Oda has to think twice before taking about of one the coolest characters.
I see no one dyeing at the execution but like a large scale capture of the WB crew of at least the WB crew who are present for the battle. I don't think WB would send his entire crew, I mean could you see his nurses and someone needs to watch the ships
