FIDE WGP Players' Objectives

May 29, 2021

As I write, the Gibraltar leg of the FIDE Women’s Grand Prix is five rounds away from a conclusion. As it is part of a four-tournament Grand Prix, different players have different objectives. Some are playing for a larger share of the money prize here in Gibraltar and a higher place in the Grand Prix points table, while others have their eyes on an additional objective - a place in the forthcoming Women’s World Championship Candidates’ tournament. This can be a little confusing for spectators and fans to follow, so I am trying to summarise the competitors’ objectives as I see them. Of course, I could be wrong!
