    There are a couple of humorous scenarios. This one, which I previously mentioned as potential issue for Ding. It is highly likely that he has taken the Chinese Covid Vaccine, but that Vaccine is not accepted in the EU. So, it he might struggle to get a visa to Spain.

    Another possibility, after all this focus on players now worried about their ratings, how many games others have played, is that Karjakin's appeal is successful and he is allowed to take his place in the 2022 Candidates, and all of this becomes irrelevant.

    Aronian has also dipped below Mamedyarov on the live list, so if a second replacement were required (Eg if Ding or one of the qualifiers didn't play), he might be out of luck.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Karjakin's appeal against being disqualified will be heard on May 5th-6th. Hopefully it will not be overturned.

    Any news on whether Ding Liren is going to be able to get a visa so he can play in the candidates?

    I hope he can but his failure to get a visa to the Grand Prix tournaments is concerning.

    If it is overturned it will be a disgrace.

    Aronian is behind both Mamedyarov and So on the May rating list so if a replacement is needed it will be Mamedyarov.

    Ding replacing Karjakin is now official:

    Ding Liren Officially In the Candidates As FIDE Announces Participants
    Updated: May 16, 2022

    GM Ding Liren is officially among the participants of the FIDE Candidates Tournament. The field of eight players was announced today by the International Chess Federation. Ding replaces GM Sergey Karjakin, who was banned for six months due to expressing his strong support for Russia's warfare in Ukraine on social media.

    Ding's participation, which is now official, was already pretty certain when Karjakin's appeal against his ban was dismissed. ...

    Field:
    • GM Ian Nepomniachtchi (runner-up 2021 world championship)
    • GM Teimour Radjabov (nominated by FIDE)
    • GM Jan-Krzysztof Duda (winner 2021 World Cup)
    • GM Alireza Firouzja (winner 2021 FIDE Chess.com Grand Swiss)
    • GM Fabiano Caruana (runner-up 2021 FIDE Chess.com Grand Swiss)
    • GM Hikaru Nakamura (winner FIDE Grand Prix)
    • GM Richard Rapport (runner-up FIDE Grand Prix)
    • GM Ding Liren (highest-rated player)

    ...
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    I believe you are slightly jumping the gun here. Fide is moving ahead with Ding in and Karjakin out, as that is the current status quo, but if CAS rules in Karjakin's favour, then all that happens is that Karjakin takes Ding's place in the field.

    I have been rather surprised that there has not been more complaints to the Fide Ethics Commissions after Karjakin's latest stunt.

    Candidates June 16 - July 7, Madrid

    As the Candidates is two weeks away and nobody has put up a poll I thought I'd be helpful and do so.

    The question is who you think will win, rather than who you would like to win. The eight current players are listed alphabetically, Karjakin is included to cover the possibility that he gets his place back.

    Note that polls can only be open for a whole number of days so it will close a couple of hours before the kickoff (which I believe is 11pm Aust Eastern time on 17 August, the first day is just the opening ceremony).

    The official site is https://candidates.fide.com/

    Garry Kasparov predicts Ding to win, with the asterix that he makes it there and is not affected by covid issues etc. Caruana second pick. From 8:30

    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    I voted for Firouzja but I don't really have a clue

    I don't think any of Rapport, Radjabov or Duda can win.
    I have strong doubts about Nakamura's chances but he surprised me to get this far so he might again.
    That leaves Firouzja, Ding, Caruana and Nepo who I think have strong chances

    I pretty much agree but with a slight difference.
    If I would put them into 3 tiers like that, I'd have Firouzja Ding Caruana at top tier.
    Second tier is Naka Nepo Duda.
    Last tier Rapport Radjabov.

    My pick was Alireza and I hope he wins. I'd be feeling more confident if he had been more active the last few months.
