The FIDE World Cup saw the round 1 playoffs on the third day of play. These were two game mini-matches at increasingly fast time controls starting with 25 minutes plus 10 seconds a move, 10 minutes plus 10 seconds a move, 5 minutes plus 3 seconds a move and then a sudden death game where white has to win with 5 minutes, black only needs a draw with 4 minutes with 3 seconds a move after move 61.

Alexander Morozevich, Peter Svidler (an easy win in the first game and a more traumatic win in game two where he was worse, equal after a brave sacrifice, then lost before finally winning) against Anna Ushenina, Michael Adams (crushing win straight from the opening in game two with white after being lost in game one but drawing) were the main players through after the first set of games.

Jorge Cori was level against Teimour Radjabov when he misunderstood the start time of the second set of rapid games (mixing 15 and 50 past the hour) and was a minute and a half late and thus defaulted due to the zero tollerence of lateness rules. This rule was apparently straight from FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov and is repulsive. Players have been defaulted under this rule in the past whilst in the playing hall looking for a pen, just not sat at the board. That is not to say a player should be able to be very late as this can be very unfair on their opponent but it seems that the language barrier was the problem here. Cori's appeal was rejected.

After the second set of games Alexei Shirov defeated Hou Yifan and Gata Kamsky beat Lou Yiping. Four games went to blitz playoffs and two to a sudden death game. Results, games and round 2 pairings.
