A few years ago, the CAM zonals were among the least documented events on my page for the World Championship Zonals. Now, thanks to Rafael, they are among the most documented.
I also updated my index for the World Championship for Women. First I added a new page for the 2015-2016 FIDE Women's Grand Prix; the first event has already finished and I'll add it ASAP. Then I updated my page on the 2015 Hou Yifan - M.Muzychuk Title Match; the event is now scheduled for March 2016 in Lviv, Ukraine.
After my first post last month on the C27 Zonals (the current cycle), I realized I had made several mistakes regarding the African zonals. I added a correction to that post.

Congratulations to both for qualifying into the forthcoming Candidates tournament and to GM Karjakin for winning the World Cup.
I still have a few actions to perform:-
Add the PGN game scores, but first I have to correct a few errors I found in the source data.
Add an explanation of the tiebreaks used. For the
2013 World Cup,
I simply pointed to the page for the 2011 event. I plan to do the same for the 2015 event, but I should first confirm that the tiebreak systems were the same for all three events. My post on the
Evolution of the FIDE Knockouts
suggests that the formats were equivalent.
- Add the 128 players to the Index of players.
Now that the event belongs to history, I would like to consider World Champion Carlsen's suggestion that the format be used for future World Championships.
