World Cup 2009 (Concluded)

FIDE World Cup Mini-Site 2009

The World Cup took place in Khanty-Mansiysk 20th November - 15th December 2009. The event is part of the next world championship cycle. 7 rounds of knockout chess produced the winner.

Top seed and the one of the oldest players in the field, Boris Gelfand, emerged as the winner in a blitz playoff against Ruslan Ponomariov.

All the rounds but the final take place over three days. There is just one rest day, directly prior to the final.

Round 1 starts 21st November, Round 2 24th November, Round 3 27th November, Round 4 30th November, Round 5 3rd December, Round 6 6th December, Rest day 10th December. The final takes place 11th - 15th December 2009.

In the playoffs there is a four game rapid mini-match at a time control of 25 minutes + 10 seconds a move. If the matches haven't been decided at this point then a series of two game blitz matches are played at 5 minutes + 3 seconds per move (colours are redrawn at the end of each pair of games). If the match is level at 8-8 then a final game is played. The player with the white pieces has 5 minutes, black, 4 minutes and after the 60th move, both players receive an additional increment of 3 seconds from move 61. In case of a draw the player with the black pieces wins the match.

Only the winner is a guaranteed qualifier for the next FIDE World Championship candidates, it's not clear what happens if the winner has already qualified, my reading of the regulations is that the winner qualifies and then an extra place is created in whatever other criterion they had qualified in. ie 2nd place gets you nothing here under every circumstance.

FIDE World Championship Qualification Regulations

2. Qualification for the 2010 Candidates Matches

The players who qualify for the Candidates Matches are determined according to the following, in order of priority:

2. 1 Challengers Match 2009 - The player who lost the 2009 Challengers Match (G. Kamsky) qualifies.

2. 2 World Cup 2009 - The winner of the World Cup 2009 qualifies.

2. 3 World Championship Match 2010 - The player who lost the 2010 WCC Match (V. Anand or V. Topalov) qualifies.

2. 4 FIDE Grand-Prix 2008/2009 - The two (2) top players from the FIDE Grand-Prix 2008/2009 qualify to participate.

2. 5 Average FIDE Rating List of July 2009 & January 2010 - Two (2) players qualify to participate by rating (excluding the players who qualify from articles 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4 above). For the purpose of deciding the 2 rated player qualifiers, the average from the following lists will be used: rating of July 2009 plus rating of January 2010 divided by 2. In case of equality two decimals will be taken into consideration. If the numbers are still equal then the number of games from the twelve months covering the whole year 2009 shall be decisive. That means the player with the greater number of games shall qualify. If the numbers are still equal then the list of March 2010 shall be decisive. If the rating in the March 2010 list is still the same, the player with the greater number of games in this list will qualify. Players who appear in the inactive list in both July 2009 and January 2010 will not be able to qualify as a rated player. If the player is inactive in one list but appears in the other, then the single rating that is published shall be taken as the average.

2. 6 One nominated player by the Organiser - A player, nominated by the organiser, with a rating of at least 2700 in the FIDE rating list of January 2010.

2. 7 Replacements - Any replacements necessary will be fulfilled from the final standings of the FIDE Grand-Prix 2008/2009.

Gelfand through to the final (Rd6 Day2 S/F)

Gelfand makes it to the final where he awaits either Ruslan Ponomariov or Vladimir Malakhov.
