Round 2 Update

Sort:
DanielRensch

This was also posted under the main forums on my account, but as an update for all members in the group, here you go! It's time for Round 2!

I also want to thank ALL of you who participated and tried to qualify! We look forward to having you compete in future events on Chess.com... and without saying it exactly... I will say that there WILL be more qualifying opportunities for other BIG events soon!


Hello Everyone,

Wow! What a wild ride the first round of the 2014 World Mind Games has been so far... and it's NOT over!

This has been our most participated in event ever here on Chess.com! Below is a list of ALL the qualifiers (minus the removal of abuse or cheat offenders) who will be moving onto Round 2!

But before we get to that list, I want to remind everyone that

  • Rigorous cheat detection will continue to apply in Round 2. Obviously we are disappointed that so many players were disqualified during this qualifying portion (include a titled player) -- but we hope it serves the "greater good" in proving to the world that we will never settle on anything but making our site the best, cleanest most amazing chess site in the world... and that if you cheat on Chess.com, titled player or not, you WILL get caught!

Thank you everyone! Look for updates in the main group on who is qualifying forward to the 3rd Round and root for your friends and favorite players (like me Tongue Out)!

Congrats to the following...
