Played in Biel, Switzerland 23 July 2017, as part of the Biel Chess Festival, the day before the main event Biel (2017) started. Official site: http://beta.bielchessfestival.ch/Ho...
Two Rapid games (10' + 5'' per move. Armageddon (5'/4') if 1-1 after Rapid). (1)
1st round knock-outs
The winners in the A side (Morozevich, Navara) met in the 2nd round, as did 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)
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 met for the finals.
3rd round knock-out final
Navara vs Harikrishna, 2017 1-0, followed by Harikrishna vs Navara, 2017 ½-½ determined Navara the winner.
