Jul-18-13  hellopolgar: Possible GM norm in the recent
Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: Needs to be seriously updated. He won the recent Canadian Closed Championship, earning a berth in the World Cup:

His Canadian rating, 2557, should be good enough for a GM norm, but I don't know whether he's earned enough of them.

Jul-31-15  twinlark: <PhilFeeley>

The Canadian event was updated a few weeks ago.

  Penguincw: Tomas Krnan enters the 2015 World Cup as the 121st seed at 2436. He will face 8th seed Ding Liren (2770) in the first round. Good luck!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Tomas Krnan lost Game 1 with white, and drew Game 2 in just 18 moves. I think Krnan should be happy coming away with the draw, even though Ding Liren just needed one to advance. Win-win situation!

Still, losing 0.5-1.5 looks better than losing 0-2 on paper.

Sep-12-15  fisayo123: A pretty spineless decision, though I can sort of understand it.
Sep-12-15  ketchuplover: agreed
