After FMJD has published the World Cup standing and list of participants for Sport Accord World Mind Games in Beijing, China http://www.warcaby.com.pl/fmjdwc/?p=104#more-104
, we were unpleasantly surprised that the one per continent place was given to Mr. Allan Silva of Brazil. While Allan is a nice young man with a bright future, his performance in both qualifying events was worst than of US Players: Alex Mogilyansky in World Championship and Yevgeniy Sklyarov in World Cup in Ufa.
We have sent a note of protest to the FMJD requesting clarification and possibly change of rules. It is very doubtful that they will be willing to recognize the shortcoming of their scoring system and change the existing standing, nevertheless, our organization felt that it should make the point that we will not quietly observe and agree to this injustice. Once we will get the reply from the world organization, we will keep you posted. Comments and suggestions from our members in this regard are very welcome.
