Eros Riccio vs Eros Riccio in WCH 5 ?

He did it... Eros Riccio qualifies for the 5th chess WCH final match (all games drawn against Alberto Gueci in the candidates final, knockout/round-robin rule decides, not TER here), and obviously he has "some chances" to meet himself at the top !! (of course he will not have to play the 12 games match in this case)

The crown will be probably very... very hard to take these next years, but I can predict that the winner, whoever he is, will have very tough matches to play to defend the title in the 6th (Alberto's revenge?), 7th and 8th edition... so many exciting games :)

Congrats Eros!

Draws are becoming more frequent. I also drew all my games in a recent match with Dan Rotaru.
Thib have you considered "blitz or bullet cc" as a tiebreak method?. Game in 7 days perhaps?

I saw several wins in a few other matches so I'll look at the whole results of this cycle... I hope we'll not have to change the current system but if necessary we'll discuss it for sure.

Well Thib, Although I'm not one to change your system. I guess you will see what these faster time controls are like form my tournament. As I have some of your top players there. It maybe a good measuring stick. Like I had talk about... Its like a longer Freestyle.

Be sure that I'll keep an eye on it (definitely I cannot play, my game vs. SpiderG at Rybkaforum shows how slow I am :/) I'm sure to learn from this experience though!

Thib can you make this more clear

Eros seems confused, and for sure I am. is this the quality statement ?

Knockout tournament winner will play round-robin cycle winner in a 8 games candidates final match (stage 4). In case of equality (4-4), the knockout tournament winner is qualified for stage 5 if all games are draw, the round-robin cycle winner if not all games are draw.

the knockout tournament winner is qualified for stage 5 if all games are draw, the round-robin cycle winner if not all games are draw.

Makes sense to me- If all eight games were drawn, then the KO tourament winner advances.

If some games were decided by win/loss, but the result ended up as 4-4, then the RR cycle winner advances.

Hi Wayne, if you find a better way to say it in the rules, please do not hesitate to suggest! :)

To find the chess WCH rules please follow :

1) Waiting lists -> Chess World Championship
2) Help -> General Rules -> Chess World Championship
3) http://www.ficgs.com/membership.html -> Chess World Championship

Eros Riccio vs Eros Riccio in WCH 5 ?

(1) The winner of KO matches is the highest TER in the event of 4-4 from all draws

(2) The winner of KO match is the lower TER entry if games are 4-4 but with wins/loss involved.

(3) If the score is 4-4 with all draws in the KO & RR match then highest TER player wins.

(4) If the score is 4-4 with win/loss then the lower TER player wins.

MY understanding is this correct. Is it more undertandable ? to me it is

Humm it is not correct I guess. (1) must not be right otherwise Eros would not have advanced :)

Eros Riccio vs Eros Riccio in WCH 5 ?

Like the heavyweight boxing championship, I throw a challenge to any of the former or current champs to play a game vs. me.....
Ehem Ehem,, sorry out of context... btw, all and any rules always make me sick, so i hate reading them :-p

Hmmmm, who is Eros? any idea?

I thought my explanation was a good summary.

If all eight games were drawn, then the KO tourament winner advances.

If some games were decided by win/loss, but the result ended up as 4-4, then the RR cycle winner advances.
