Alexandra Kosteniuk's Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) 2013

Hi everyone, 

The classical games of the fourth round at the World Chess Cup 2013 witnessed four players going straight into the next round without playing the tiebreaks on Thursday. Vladimir Kramnik knocked out Vassily Ivanchuk, Gata Kamsky knocked out Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, Fabiano Caruana knocked out Julio Granda Zuniga and Anton Korobov stunned Hikaru Nakamura.

The all-Russian matches Morozevich Alexander – Tomashevsky Evgeny and Andreikin Dmitry – Karjakin Sergey, as well as Le Quang Liem – Svidler Peter and Vachier-Lagrave Maxime – Gelfand Boris will be decided in the rapid/blitz tie-breaks on Thursday. You can watch all the games of the World Chess Cup live at the official website.

It wasn't that any of the losers were not in form. It's just like it in the World Cup. One minor error and you get going, and that's the excitement and pressure both. Stay tuned for more exciting chess as the field narrows down to the last eight on Thursday.
