The FIDE World Cup took place in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia 28th August - 20th September 2011. 32 players over 2700 competed in the field of 128. Sergey Karjakin, Vassily Ivanchuk and Shakhriyar Mamedyarov were the top seeds but it was one of the most naturally gifted players Russian Champion Peter Svidler who took first place beating Alexander Grischuk in the final. Vassily Ivanchuk beat Ruslan Ponomariov in the 3rd-4th place playoff to claim the final of three World Chess Championship Candidates spots.

Svidler wins World Cup Ivanchuk grabs final Candidates place (7.4)

Peter Svidler won the FIDE World Cup in Khanty Mansiysk and a cheque for $96,000 with a final game draw securing a 2.5-1.5 win against Alexander Grischuk. After a cautious opening Svidler suddenly seemed resolved to actively take the title and his energetic play which has typified his performance easily got him the draw required. Grischuk said that his opponent clearly played the best of anyone in the event. Svidler earned more rest days with some fine wins with black against a very tough sequence of opponents and this energy clearly helped in the final. Svidler's opponents were: Lima, Nguyen, Caruana, Kamsky, Polgar and Ponomariov leading to the final. Vassily Ivanchuk finally didn't disappoint his supporters when he held on to draw and win a match he dominated at the start against Ruslan Ponomariov who looked totally out of gas.
