World Cup: 17-year-old Peruvian Jorge Cori suffered because of language barrier 

The Round 1 playoffs lasted for more than six hours. Two armageddons took place: Tomashevsky defeated Ramirez, while Granda Zuniga left behind Melkumyan.
All results are available here.

The most of the attention caught the match between Jorge Cori and Teimour Radjabov. The experienced Azerbaijani lost first rapid game but managed to recoup himself in the 2nd one. 17-year-old Peruvian player was late to the first blitz game. We reported on the situation live on our Twitter-page. Here you can find tweets by Chess-News, as well as by the commentator Susan Polgar, Tarjei J. Svensen (both are on the spot) and John Saunders.

Svensen: Jorge Cori didn't show up for his game in time, was nowhere to be found, so the forfeit was unavoidable..

S. Polgar: Cori arrived to tournament hall at 6:16 pm and was forfeited due to zero tolerance. Cori is writing his appeal. There's a misunderstanding due to language barrier.

As Chess-News found out there are no written information signs regarding the timing int he playing hall. The start of each round is announced only orally.

Nowhere in regulations is written the participants are obliged to know English language. Cori's appeal is logical.

Svensen: Jorge Cori showed up around 1 minute and 30 seconds late for his game.

Saunders: Jorge Cori speaks no English - I have interpreted for him in Gibraltar -FIDE, please reinstate him!

Cori withdrew his appeal. The reason is if he would have lost $500 if he loses the appeal. Too much risk.

Saunders: Arbiter announced 6.15 start. Jorge Cori wasn't sure, asked 2nd arb 'is it 6.50?' 2nd arb thought he said 6.15 so said 'yes'!

Polgar: Cori asked several people for advice. Was told there's little chance. But he still has 2 hrs to do it

Polgar: Cori will make an appeal after this game. I personally guarantee his $500 appeals fees.

Surov: Ali Nihat Yazici is a member of the Appeal Committee. Poor 17-years old guy. He's really unlucky.

Polgar: The appeal has been handed to the Appeals Committee with the $500 guarantee. Cori is waiting for answer.

Polgar: Cori and Radjabov with appeals committee now. Waiting for results.


The text of the Appeal Committe. Short and Strict.

Garry Kasparov also commented on the situation. His commentary soon on Chess-News.

Radjabov, who of course wasn't guilty in anything, made a draw in the 2nd blitz game and qualified to the next round.
