    So finishes the Grand Prix a few points behind Aronian.
    Ding netted +11.8 pts in Hangzhou, and is 30 pts clear of Aronian.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    First 2 games drawn, and the third one heading firmly in the same direction.

    Ding wins the match by winning the last game after 5 previous draws.

Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    Next he has
    10 games in a qualifier event for the 2022 Asian Games between April 14 and 24.
    That makes a total of 28 games, two more than needed, and a week ahead of that May rating list.

    Wouldn't that be, he needs another two games as his total is 28 games?

    No, because he had already played 4 last year. Even if the Wei match finished early, he would have had enough.

    Ding is leading the 2nd Chinese Asian Games Qualifier with 4/6, for a small rating loss currently. Games start 4pm AEST.

    Aronian is also in action now...but its a rapid event so no chance to catch up.

    Actually it is classical games followed by rapid playoff in a knockout format, so he could catchup a bit potentially. He's lost a few rating points already though after a classical loss to Robson (2681). He would need to nearly picket-fence it from here to have a hope of catching Ding.

    Meanwhile Ding drew with Xu (2564).

    And Aronian won the playoff. He will play Dominguez-Perez 2 classical games next. I presume if he can win both, he gets ~ 9 points from that.
    Then it will depend who else makes the final. Best case if Caruana gets through then he can get ~ 9 points more.
    Even if all that happens, he'd need Ding to drop another 10+ points, as the gap between them is 29.5.
    All pretty unlikely, but not off the cards yet.

    Looks like Fabi got through to the semis by the skin of his teeth! Won by flagging in arma when he was in a losing position. Xiong was just a move short of reaching increment at move 60!

    Ding is going to get his 30 games played so will put into the candidates but will he get a visa to be able to get to Spain to play?

    Aronian couldn't manage it, and was eliminated by Dominguez Perez, 0.5-1.5. He cannot catch Ding.
