The FIDE World Cup is at its last stage. After weeks of epic fights over the board, the two survivors GM Peter Svidler and GM Sergey Karjakin are going to cross their Kings for the finals, which will take place from October 1st to 5th , with 4 classical time control games - one a day - and tiebreaks if needed. Games start at 6AM EDT (12 noon Europe). The knockout format, when most of the top guns participate, is always fascinating and gives strong GMs - who usually can't make it to the elite installments - a chance to play the crème de la crème. GM Pavel Eljanov is a shining example of this. He played a fantastic tournament, crushing everyone almost without having the need to go down to tiebreaks. He landed to the semifinals in a roll, ready to wipe off another obstacle on the path of his dream tournament, namely GM Sergey Karjakin. It's been a rollercoaster. Must-win situations, missed opportunities, blunders, and all the complete dramatic happenings that playoffs can bring up. Down to the 10+10 games, Eljanov lost the first game because of a blunder and a must-win situation was there, looming over Eljanov. In the last game, tragedy happened!
