Fabiano Caruana became a surprise casualty of the 3rd round in the World Cup when he lost to World no 124 Rinat Jumabayev.
Fabiano drew the first game with the white pieces and one wouldn’t expect the World no 2 to lose a game in the Queen’s Gambit Declined. Jumabayev however had other ideas!
The third round of the World Cup concludes tomorrow with tiebreaks.
FIDE WORLD CUP
The Chess World Cup 2021 is a 206-player single-elimination chess tournament that will take place in Sochi, Russia, from 12 July to 6 August 2021. It is the 9th edition of the Chess World Cup.
The top two finishers in the tournament, aside from World Champion Magnus Carlsen, will qualify for the Candidates Tournament 2022. The rest of the final eight qualify for the FIDE Grand Prix 2022, unless they are World Champion or qualify for the Candidates via another path.
In parallel with this open tournament, an inaugural women’s only version is being held.
The tournament will be an 8-round knockout event, with the top 50 seeds given a bye directly into the second round. The losers of the two semi-finals play a match for third place.
The top two finishers, aside from World Champion Magnus Carlsen, qualify for the Candidates Tournament 2022, which is a tournament to decide the next challenger for the World Championship. In addition, all quarter-finalists, who have not otherwise qualified for the Candidates, qualify for the FIDE Grand Prix 2022, giving them another chance to qualify for the Candidates.
Each round will consist of classical time limit games on the first two days, plus tie-breaks on the third day if required. The time limits are as follows:
Two classical time limit games: 90 minutes, plus a 30-minute increment on move 40, plus a 30-second increment per move from move 1, per player.
If the match is tied after the classical games, players play two rapid chess games, with 25 minutes plus a 10-second increment per move, per player.
If the match is still tied, players then play two rapid chess games, with 10 minutes plus a 10-second increment per move, per player.
If the match is still tied, players then play two more blitz games, with 5 minutes plus a 3-second increment per move, per player.
If the match is still tied, a single armageddon chess game is played to decide the match, with draw odds to Black, meaning White must win but Black only needs to draw or win, to win the match. The players draw lots and the winner of the draw chooses their color. White receives 5 minutes, Black receives 4 minutes, and each player receives an extra 2 seconds per move beginning at move 61.
Each round takes three days: two for classical time limit games and a third, if necessary, for tie-breaks. Rounds 1 to 3 run from July 12 to 20; July 21 is a rest day; Rounds 4 to 6 run from July 22 to 30; July 31 is a rest day, and the last two rounds run from August 1 to 6.
Play begins at 3.00 local time (1200 UT) on all days.
The total prize fund is US$1,892,500, with the first prize of US$110,000.
