What if Kasparov came out of retirement to enter candidates tournament? Technically he would automatically qualify because he's 2nd highest FIDE rated player in the world still!!!!!
No, "A minimum of thirty (30) rated games in total is required for each player in the 12 monthly rating periods." (August 2012-July 2013)
(not necessarily Manhattan though - go to the South )
And yet it says you're leaving Durham!
