At yesterday's press conference after his first round win over Michael Adams, Vladimir Kramnik confirmed that he will play in the World Cup in Baku in September. 

"I will play 100%, he said. But I know very well that nobody ever won such a knockout event twice in a row. My chances are minimal, but I will try".

The World Cup will probably be Kramnik's only chance to reach the Candidates tournament next year. In the rating list he is too low and he is not playing in the Grand Prix.
