Phase Three of FWFRCC Compressed

Last week's post, Phase Three of FWFRCC Underway (FWFRCC = FIDE World Fischer Random Chess Championship), showed a schedule which was not current. I suppose there was a conflict with the forthcoming 2019 World Cup at Khanty-Mansiysk, because the current round of FWFRCC qualifiers will now finish before the World Cup starts. The corrected schedule is shown below.

In the intervening week since the last post, two more of the six qualifiers were held. Here are the Chess.com reports:-

By the time the next post on this blog appears, the last three events will have been played. The final knockout stage will take place from early October through early November.
