The World Cup will not be won in a classical game. All four games are drawn, so rapid games and even Blitz will eventually decide who wins this year.
The classical games were all fairly balanced with neither participant really demonstrating that they were the stronger.
|Name (seeding)||Country||Rating||Age||Classical game 1||Classical game 2||Classical game 3||Classical game 4|
Here is a summary of the finalist's records so far:
|Name||Country||Rating||Age||Classical wins||Classical draws||Classical losses||Rapid wins||Rapid draws||Rapid losses||Blitz wins||Blitz draws||Blitz losses||Overall wins||Overall draws||Overall draws|
So Ponomariov could become World Cup champion after winning only two classical games!
