Since the World Championship cycle has been changed since the old days, I will try to bring it back on chess.com! Basically, there will be 2 Interzonal tournaments, and the top 6 finishers in each will go on to the Candidates tournament of 12 players. The top 4 finishers of THAT will go to a seperate quadrangular tournament, and the winner is champion for now! Every 6 months or so I will try this cycle again! Note that the Candidates and quadrangular tournaments are invite-only, so only the qualifyers can play. You can only enter 1 Interzonal, not both! So, if you read all of that and want to become known as the BEST, please join!

    Looks like a tragic tourney ending, I have the best score against humans but will not win anyway.
