1999 - FIDE World Championship KO Tournament
Compiled by amadeus
--*--

The FIDE World Chess Championship 1999 was held in Las Vegas, United States, between 31 July and 28 August 1999.

A change from the 1998 championship was that incumbent champion (Anatoly Karpov) had no special privileges, other than that he (like a number of leading players) was seeded into the second round. In protest at this, Karpov refused to play. Kasparov and Anand also refused to play, as they were negotiating a rematch, and also harbored criticisms of the format.

Time limits: two games (four in the semifinals, six in the final) with 40 moves in 100 minutes, followed by 20 moves in 50 minutes, followed by all moves in 10 minutes. In addition there was a time increment of 30 seconds per move added to the players time (from move 1).

Rapid-play tie-break games The first series of two games played at 25 minutes per player + 10 seconds time increment. If required a second series of two games played at 15 minutes per player + 10 seconds time increment. If the match was still tied a series of sudden death games were played. The first player to win went through. White started with 4 minutes and Black five minutes + 10 seconds time increment. If the match carried on too long in this mode (to be decided by the arbiter) then a single decisive game was to be played. White received 6 minutes and black 5 minutes (no increment, black goes through in the event of a draw).
