Most of the favourites won their games in Round 1 of the World Cup and most of them did it quite easily. Levon Aronian's win over Mikhail Markov can't be mentioned as such though. Armenian GM outplayed his opponent without a title in an approximately equal endgame.

"He just plays stronger," Markov noted while giving an express commentary after the game. "I am honored to first of all take part in such competition and to play against Aronian. I used his games as tutorials several years ago."

Let us remind you Mikhail Markov was suspected in cheating by GM Fillipov. This is what Markov answered on Susan Polgar's question how he managed to qualify for the World Cup:

"I qualified by the help of the zonal tournament which was held in my homeland, the city of Osh. Playing at home was much of help. The tournament wasn't that strong: there were only two GMs and several IMs. I won due to making less mistakes than my opponents and I was also lucky."

In addition Markov said:

"I will try to do my best in the next round. I raised serious problems in the first game and tomorrow I will try to put more pressure."
