svidler has only used 12 mins for 22 moves! i guess he's still in his theory!
I cannot understand kramnik, as he in effect cannot lose(what with his rematch option) he should be going all out for the win in every game.

What happens if he loses the tournament?
Originally posted by jonrothwell..so if he loses this tournament then he plays the winner of this tournament and Topalov will also play the same person?? Or is that a different world cup?

The winner of that match will then face the winner of topolov vs the world cup winner. For the title.
Thats as i understand it. in effect this is just a semi final!
