Hi everyone,

Hi everyone,

Fide has announced the first round pairings for the World Cup of Chess 2011. It is a knockout event. You can access the complete list at this Fide link and the official website of the event at this link. The World Cup of Chess, as you must have already read, will take place in Khanty-Mansiysk from August 26 to September 21.

Fide has issued a revised pairing list on Friday. As reported earlier, Hou Yifan and Judit Polgar are no longer paired to play each other in the first round. You can check the new list now.
