    Taxi is probably best and safest its around 13-15km (depends where in the CBD your staying) and its like maybe 20-30 dollars

    I have a question about the requirements for earning CM/FM direct titles at this Zonal. The Table for Direct Titles in the FIDE Handbook states that the requirement for the FM title is a score of 65% in a minimum of 9 games. For CM, the required score is 50% in a minimum of 9 games. The tournament is 9 rounds. If a player receives a bye or wins a point by forfeit, then they cannot play 9 games. Would this mean that a score of 6/9 (4.5/9) would not be sufficient to earn the FM (CM) title?

    That is correct. In the last Oceania Zonal a player who was on 3.5/8 won his last round game by forfeit reaching 4.5/9. He was not eligible for the CM title. On the other hand if a player scored 4.5 over the board in 8 games and won a game on forfeit, I would expect that to be accepted.

    I believe that person who got 3.5/8 should have got the CM title it doesnt sound fair , not getting a chance to get the CM title because an oppenent as forfeited . i think that its not fair also for someone who is getting a bye in the first round (if theres odd numbers ) who ends up getting 4.5/9 or 6/9 to not get the title.

    do you think fide would reconsider that rule?
