Anish Giri: A player who understands all qualification paths to Candidates should get 1 spot too #TweetOftheDay

The FIDE Council has approved today a major reform of the qualification paths to the Candidates Tournament – the event that decides the challenger for the World Championship match. According to the new system, 1 player will qualify from the FIDE World Championship Match 2023 (runner-up), 3 players will qualify from the FIDE World Cup, 2 players will qualify from the FIDE Grand Swiss Tournament 2023, 1 player will qualify from FIDE Circuit events, and 1 player will qualify according to FIDE rating.

Anish Giri had an interesting reaction to the new system, suggesting that a player who understands all the qualification paths should get a spot too. See the tweet below
