Aug-25-11  Sbetsho: First!
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: I come off second-best!
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: This year we again have different tiebreaks than the previous edition (it will be 2 rapids, followed by two 10+10, followed by two 5+3, followed by Armageddon). I wonder what they didn't like about the 2009 tiebreaks, which worked very well.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Is K-M also Chess City, the lair of Kirsan?
Aug-25-11  jhoro: Looks like Topalov opted out:

The rating seems unlikely way for him to qualify for the WCC in 2014 so he is practically out, unless Silvio has something up his sleeve. BTW Naka is skipping the World Cup too!?

Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Topalov is turning into the Bobby Fischer of the 21st Century. Bit of a ghost...
Aug-25-11  yalie: The winner will be from:

pono, Grischuk or Ivanchuk

will be really cool if Ivanchuk qualifies for the next candidates!

Aug-25-11  number 23 NBer: Go Canada! GM Bluvshtein and IM Hansen for some upsets.
Aug-25-11  waustad: The WIKI page has pairings.
Aug-25-11  SamAtoms1980: Already?

It warn't broke!

  HeMateMe: Is Carlsen in it?
Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: No Carlsen is not in it.

They changed the tiebreaks because they didn't like the fact that Akobian played Tregubov until 2am.

Aug-25-11  Rolfo: Bring on Topalov and Nakamura...
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: What a wimp. Carlsen will lose respect in the chess world if he doesn't play against the strongest players.

Uh oh...will this result in a fatwah upon me by the Norwegian contingent here?

Aug-25-11  Blunderdome: Well, since Carlsen is playing a closed event against Anand, Kramnik and Aronian while this is going on, I don't exactly think he's dodging the strongest players.
Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: Topalov and Nakamura aren't playing either.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Brazil beats Germany 3-2 in the final.
Premium Chessgames Member
  twinlark: Carlsen has already qualified for the Candidates.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: I stand corrected. I thought this was the only event happening.
Premium Chessgames Member
  twinlark: Here's the whole pairing tree to the final:
Aug-25-11  laskersteinitz: Bacrot-Robson should be very interesting.
Aug-25-11  positionalgenius: The winner will be one of these five I believe: Leko,ponomariov, grischuk, karjakin and adams.
Aug-25-11  positionalgenius: Actually don't count out kasimdhzanov either.
