Today the 2nd ACP World Rapid Cup began in Odessa (Ukraine). Sixteen players, who had qualified from the ACP Tour 2006-2007, are fighting in a short knockout event (rapid) for a first prize of 40.000 dollars. (Last year, Leko won the cup). On the first day, Jakovenko beat Savchenko 2-0, Radjabov defeated Drozdovsky 1.5-0.5 and with the same figures Ivanchuk beat his compatriot Eljanov and Shirov was... yes, eliminated, by Inarkiev. Tomorrow Leko, Najer, Karjakin, Svidler, Shabalov, Gelfand, Karpov (!) and Judit Polgar play.

[TABLE=91]

During the last rapid game Inarkiev-Shirov the tournament website got overloaded but we've managed to trace the moves. Here you can replay all games of day 1:
