|May-28-16|| ||sonia91: Top 5 will qualify for the 2017 World Cup.|
|May-28-16|| ||PhilFeeley: Seems like a bit of an imbalance - 23 from Europe and only 5 from Asia?|
|May-28-16|| ||sonia91: <PhilFeeley> Asian players, unlike the European ones, can qualify to World Cup also through <zonal tournaments> and not only from the continental championship; e.g. Wei Yi qualified to the 2015 World Cup through the Zonal 3.5: https://www.fide.com/images/stories...|
Same thing for the Americas and Africa. For example, a US or a Canadian player can qualify to World Cup either from their respective national championships (which are at the same time also zonal 2.1 and 2.2 tournaments respectively) or from the American Continental Championship (whose 2016 edition starts today in San Salvador: http://www.chess-results.com/tnr218...).
|May-28-16|| ||Pulo y Gata: LQL still plays mean chess while working on his education. This young man knows his priorities and is truly polite and well-balanced. Excellent chess player and excellent student - there's a true achiever right there!|
|May-28-16|| ||Keyser Soze: Thanks for.the info <sonia>. As expected,LQL and Yi will mop the floor together till the end.|
|May-31-16|| ||Troller: <As expected,LQL and Yi will mop the floor together till the end.>|
Well, after 5 rounds we have a 9-way tie for first. Possibly the World Cup tickets induce the players to a safe approach; certainly we have seen some very fast draws already. Still, LQL and Wei Yi are in the running, and they should be regarded as main favourites to qualify.
|May-31-16|| ||AzingaBonzer: After Round 6 Wei Yi and LQL are the sole leaders.|
|Jun-01-16|| ||notyetagm: <CHESS-RESULTS PAGE> for Asian Continental Championships (2016):|

They both lost in the final Round 9.
|Jun-03-16|| ||sonia91: Curioulsy, like in the European Individual Championship (2016), also here a former FIDE world champion didn't make the cut for World Cup.|
|Jun-05-16|| ||sonia91: Lu Shanglei won the Asian Blitz Championship, held on June 4: http://www.chess-results.com/tnr225...|
