WCC Index [FIDE 2001 World Championship]
Compiled by iron maiden
--*--

Work in progress.

The FIDE regulations in place at the time called for two-game matches at normal time control. The winner would move on to the next round while the loser was eliminated. If the original two games ended in a 1-1 tie, the players would contest two rapid-play games to determine a winner, followed by two games of blitz if necessary. If the match was still undecided, a single "sudden death" game would take place between the participants, with White having six minutes and Black five. The winner of this seventh game would be the overall match winner; in the event of a draw the player with the black pieces would be allowed to advance.

For the sixth round of the event, the amount of games played at normal time control in each minimatch were increased from two to four, and then from four to eight for the seventh and final round. The rules for quick-play tie-breaks remained unchanged throughout the event.
