World Cup R1.1 A few upsets and vivid coverage
In the first round of the FIDE World Cup brought many players with large rating differences 250-350 Elo points together on the first ten boards. Almost all ended in the favorites beating the underdogs, but we saw losses by Super GMs Wang Yue and Peter Leko to lesser opponents. The HD video coverage from Khanty-Mansiysk is very impressive and vividly shows the drama of the game.
