    There are still issues with clearing him to play relating to him being in the post-transfer window in which it appears that according to FIDE rules he can't play without fees being paid to FIDE and (unless waived) his old federation.

    every time I read something about international transfer fees paid to FIDE I think of the most recent …

    The deal is worth at least $340 million over four years, according to Forbes sources. The tally includes a $140 million (€120 million) transfer fee owed to Real and a net annual salary for Ronaldo of roughly $35 million (€30 million).Jul 10, 2018


    Well since FIFA gets nothing out of such deals, FIDE has one over the soccer mob!

    Yes Max, I received advice from the organisers last night that Temur Kuybokarov has entered the Zonal. (I wonder: have the 'issues' Kevin mentioned been cleared up and has Australia endorsed him as one of its two official representatives in the Open section?) I'll update the field in the weekend - when I've finished competing in the George Trundle Qualifiers event and I'm back in QLD on my familiar desk-top

    No-one has told me anything about the problems being cleared up, and I think it's highly likely I would have been told as Gary Wastell (ACF President) is contacting his former federation, and even if agreement is reached there is still a permission form to be sent to FIDE and a charge to be paid to FIDE. Unless of course FIDE decides to do something completely different that nobody has told me about. On 22/12 I advised the organisers as follows:

    Unless we advise that these fees and formalities have been completed, Australia cannot and does not approve any entry from Temur Kuybokarov in the Oceania Zonal as we will be charged a fine by FIDE if he represents us in this time, even if not playing as an official entry.

    I have not emailed the organisers since.

    ........and I am sure with the new FIDE administration, which they promised to reduce fees would waiver this fee, especially if we take into account it is a Zonal and the FIDE President is all about development, in particular with Zone 3.6

    I know the new administration is intending to halve FIDE fees subject to approval of the General Assembly later this year. I haven't heard anything about whether this applies to the Compensation Fee which is a fee paid by one federation to another, and is the major problem in this instance.

    List of Zonal entries - Updated Jan 13

    Australia
    Open: GM Max Illingworth* (2501), Angelito Camer (2083), CM Leon Kempen (1889), CM Aurel-John Buciu (1756), Viney Kumar (1633), Michael Buciu (unr)
    Women: WGM Julia Ryjanova* (2308), IM Irina Berezina* (2109), Rebecca Stones (1792)

    New Zealand
    Open: CM John Duneas* (2044), Tony Dowden (2044), CM Hilton Bennett (1943), CM Paul Spiller (1908), Johnson Li (unr)
    Women: WFM Vyanla Punsalan* (1952)

    Guam
    Open: CM Elmer Prudente (2015), Enofre D Manuel (1943), Rudolph P Soriano (1812), Elias Tirador (1804), Malcolm Mcfarland (1781), CM Rogelio L Orio (1775), Felix Lacno (1711), Almer Santos (1665), Radcliffe Paras (1653), Gefferson Batula (1569), Leon Ryan (1410), Benny Pinaula (1329), Rodrigo Bumagat (unr), Gavino A. Estur (unr), Melchor Manibusan (unr), Lester Sison (unr)
    Women: Olga Szekely (1708), Ruth Baptista (1601), Grace C. Estur (unr)

    Papua New Guinea
    Open: FM Stuart Fancy* (1984), FM Shaun Press (1904)

    Palau
    Open: Tito Cabunagan (1717), Dennis Gonzales (1622), Ksau Anthony Whipps (1519), Remrel Dizon (1482), Mohammad Manik Hossain (1480), Reece Reklai (1345), Eric Ksau Whipps (1336)
    Women: WFM Angie Parrado (1554), Angelil Sisior (1439), Destiny Sisior (1431)

    Nauru

    Notes: 1. The Palau contingent has had some withdrawals, 2. As per recent posts it is unclear whether IM (and GM-elect) Temur Kuybokarov is eligible, so I haven't added him at this stage, 3. I am also unsure if Marco Corpuz (Philippines or maybe Guam?) is eligible.

    Regarding Kuybokarov I understand he's just being considered as an entry provisionally while attempts are made to resolve the post-transfer and other issues in time. (I suspect they won't be.)

    And that person will progress as far as most of our previous representatives.

    This appears authoritative. May I ask on what basis?
