We show that crossing probabilities in 2D critical site percolation on the triangular lattice in a piecewise analytic Jordan domain converge with power law rate in the mesh size to their limit given by the Cardy-Smirnov formula. We use this result to obtain new upper and lower bounds of (Formula Presented) for the probability that the cluster at the origin in the half-plane has diameter R, improving the previously known estimate of R -1/3+o(1).
