In the commentary given to our website the participant of Grand Prix Series Fabiano Caruana reflected on businessman Oleg Skvortsov's recent proposal of organizing the match or match-tournament for deciding who will qualify for the Candidates:

"The idea is undoubtedly interesting and I wouldn't decline it, especially taking into account Skvortsov's outstanding abilities to organization of such events. Unfortunately, this idea won't be supported by other participants of the Grand Prix. First of all, there's still a fight for the last places in the series which decide the prizes. Secondly, there's a chance that the specific outcome at World Cup would let those finishing third and fourth in Grand Prix to qualify for the Candidates."

Caruana's coach Vladimir Chuchelov told us what should be changed in Grand Prix Series:

"We think that this preposterous rule "the worst result is not counted" should be revoked. In that case the tension will be kept till the very end of the competition."
