The winners in the A side (Morozevich, Navara) meet in the 2nd round, as do the winners in the B side (Pelletier, Harikrishna).
A: Alexander Morozevich 1½ - ½ Anatoly Karpov | David Navara 2 - 1 Yifan Hou (Armageddon game: Navara vs Yifan Hou, 2017 played at the rate of (5'/4') in minutes.)
B: Yannick Pelletier 2 - 0 Rafael Vaganian | Pentala Harikrishna 1½ - ½ Vlastimil Hort
2nd round knock-outs
Navara vs Morozevich, 2017 1-0 in the 1st game, followed by Morozevich vs Navara, 2017 which was drawn; Pelletier vs Harikrishna, 2017 0-1 in the 1st game meant that Harikrishna vs Pelletier, 2017 would require a black win to play a possible Armageddon game, but Harikrishna instead also won the 2nd game. So Harikrishna and Navara meet for the finals.
