FIDE world cup / WCH

FIDE world cup / WCH

Gata Kamsky (2714) just won the FIDE world cup final match against Alexei Shirov (2739) : 2.5 - 1.5 in Khanty-Mansiysk (Russia).

According to a recent FIDE rule, he should challenge the former world champion : Veselin Topalov. So he may play the reigning world champion after that (if he wins of course, if Anand keeps his title until there and if I understood well, not sure). Okokok...

Hi Thibault, What is the difference between FICGS__CHESS__WCH_TOURNAMENTS and FICGS__CHESS__WORLD_CHAMPIONSHIP ? Is the latest supposed to be a Knock-out tournament? There are no games displayed under this on the Tournaments page. Anyway a knock-out tournament would be interesting. Something like the FIDE World Cup.

Hi Dan, It's only a way to separate the final matches (candidates final or current champion vs. challenger) from the first stages tournaments, but I'll probably reorganize some things in a while as it is not so easy yet to find a particular WCH tournament...

OK, now it makes sense. Maybe you should have few links: WCH_001 followed by sub links: preliminaries, then Stage 2, candidates final and so on. What about a knock out tourney? Do you think it would be a good idea? I would personally like to play such a tourney. Cheers, Dan

Yes, I'll separate the stages that way soon. About the WCH cycle, it is already a knockout tournament, even if there's a round-robin cycle inside.
