In one evening Karjakin and Andreikin entered Candidates

Would Sergey Karjakin play in the Candidates or not was decided in Vachier-Lagrave - Kramnik tiebreak. The Frenchman didn't show the play which helped him to eliminate Gelfand and Caruana on tiebreaks in previous rounds. "Everything went very smoothly for me," Kramnik said after the game. He won the first game as black and made an easy draw in the 2ns one. 

In another semifinal match two Russians Andreikin and Tomashevsky were determining the finalist. The first game finished in a logical draw and the second encounter also seemed to finish likewise as both GMs played quickly but at the same time carefully. 


28...Re1? Tomashevsky was first to make a mistake. Possible was 28...Qxd3 29.Rxd3 Re1 or even suggested by Kramnik at the press center 28...Re4!? As the former world champion noted, "I understand he wants to play without any risk. We are talking here, but the guy wants to qualify to Candidates, he made such a long way..."
Andreikin won the pawn - 29.Rxe1 Rxe1 30.Qd2 Re8 31.Qxf4 and never let his opponent to escape.

Thus, the World Cup has a Russian final. One of the finalists Dmitry Andreikin won only one classical game in this competition, all others were drawn. In all rounds, except the 2nd one, he eliminated his rivals on tiebreaks: either in rapid or in blitz.

Here we offer you the quotes we tweeted live on our Тwitter page:   

Kramnik: "Maybe I will get some premium from Alpari..."

@zangalis_k Deep gratitude goes to Vladimir Borisovich, as Karjakin's manager I will push for him to get a premium! I promise 

Kramnik (during Andreikin-tomashevsky game): "I will tell you straightly, I think there'd be more interesting chess if I played Tomashevsky in the final.. I guess that's a common opinion"

Kramnik plans to go fishing on a rest day.

Short advised Kramnik to try to defeat Andreikin in classical in final.

In one evening the Candidates got two participants: Andreikin and Karjakin.

Andreikin: "I have a broad experience of playing blitz online. We often play with Nigel... I didn't consider myself a favourite"  [tiebreak against Tomashevsky]

Andreikin: "The tournament hasn't finished yet, the final is ahead and the pressure is still there."

Andreikin: "My chess development was quite spontaneous. There even was a moment when I almost gave up chess, but last year I quite spontaneously went to the Higher League and qualified to then Superfinal..."

Andreikin:"After Round 2 we together with my wife went to the botanical garden and the sea. Perhaps, we will do the same tomorrow. I guess I won't go fishing"

@ortodoks I invite you to Bergen. I will provide you with excursions, meals and lodging. Call - +4741184994 Priest Dmitry Ostanin.

Andreikin: "I would like to note that we play for the same club with Tomashevsky, but I am not connected to Saratov anyhow. I play for Ryazan where I was born. "Saratov semifinal" was a myth." 

Andreikin: "I am fascinated by Kramnik's play in this tournament. Unlike others he is calm and plays with a bit of smile."

Kramnik and Andreikin have already checked the pieces, lightning in the hall and other details before the match. According to drawing Kramnik will be White in Game 1.
