The nominees and all participants for the Chess World Cup announced

World Chess Cup 2011

The World Chess Cup 2011 will take place 26.08-21.09 in Khanty Mansiysk. It is a knock out competition and includes 128 players. The winner qualifies for the next World Chess Championship Candidates event.

It is a long event, where the winner has to progress through seven consecutive match victories and possible tiebreaks to reach the top position. However, the competition also has one of the biggest prize funds, amounting to 1.6$ million.

Last year’s winner Boris Gelfand went on to win the Candidates matches and will play the World Chess Championship 2012.

The participants in the World Chess Cup include players from Zonal and FIDE World Championship events. Besides them, the FIDE President and the Organizing committee nominees for the World Chess Cup 2011 in Khanty Mansyisk have been announced. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov has added to the list the ex world champion GM Kasimdzhanov, GM Sutovsky, GM Peter Heine Nielsen, the young Chinese talent Ding Liren, GM Bologan and GM Moradiabadi.
