EK: Europe Echecs wonders why Azmaiparashvili played in this zone. He was representing Bosnia & Hercegovina at that time, which can be seen from the rating lists of that time. So he was in the right zone after all ;) [Ref. BI072028]

Notes: The inclusion of Kobese as a nominee of the FIDE President contradicts the clipping for zone 4.3. Of the six names given as replacements, all but the last (Speelman) eventually played.


Chess Life, 1998-01

Notes: 'The $5 million FIDE World Championship is set to begin with an opening ceremony on December 8 in Groningen. Play begins with Round One on December 9. The player list for the huge knockout event includes FIDE World Champion Anatoly Karpov and the following contenders: • Vladimir Kramnik has officially notified FIDE that he will not be participating. As a result, Zurab Azmaiparashvili (highest rated player in Round One) will take Kramnik's place in Round Two. Joel Benjamin's Round One opponent is now going to be Vadim Zjagintsev of Russia. • Only PCA World Champion Garry Kasparov, former FIDE Challenger Gata Kamsky, Vladimir Kramnik, and FIDE World Women's Champion Zsuzsa Polgar have declined their invitations.'
