|May-20-07|| ||I3illieJoe: Buuuuu I wanted Carlsen to win :(|
|May-20-07|| ||pawneater07: Why isnt Radjabov in the candidates matches?|
|May-20-07|| ||s4life: he lost to Van Wely|
|May-20-07|| ||WannaBe: I'll take John Paul II over Pius XI!
Oh, <Hopes>!! Nevermind... (Gotta get my eyes checked out, again)

These upcoming Candidates Matches are based on the results of the 2005 FIDE World Cup, played in November 2005 in Siberia.
Ivanchuk lost to Cheparinov, Radjabov lost to Van Wely, etc. Which is why you see Gurevich and Malakhov playing next week while Radjabov and Mamedyarov sit home and watch over the Internet.

|May-21-07|| ||petrovalovski: A few really good players are missing: Topalov, Ivanchuck, Radjabov, Mamedyarov. It really sucks for these players that they are excluded from the world championship cycle which lasts several years only due to a small loss in a rapid game almost two years ago.|
|May-22-07|| ||Timex: <I3illieJoe> Same here|
|May-23-07|| ||TheGladiator: <only due to a small loss in a rapid game almost two years ago.>|
Were the losses particularly small? If they'd won the classic match, then they would be through, though, and Ivanchuck even lost the classic match, didn't he?
|Apr-29-08|| ||Whitehat1963: Why didn't Hope participate?|
|Apr-29-08|| ||RookFile: I thought for a second, this was the match of the Popes. They tended to like to move the bishops a lot.|
|Apr-30-08|| ||whiteshark: They abandoned all Hope.|
|Jun-13-08|| ||Whitehat1963: I think this match was played on the southern tips of South Africa and Argentina.|
|Jul-05-10|| ||Jafar219: Of course Radjabov plays chess better than Carlsen.|
