Whence They Came

I updated my in-process page on the the World Chess Championship Zonals to include all information gathered since the last update on 2005-10-03. This includes Continental Championships and Zonals for the previous and current cycles, which qualified players into Khanty-Mansiysk 2005 and 2007.

The page is starting to become more reliable, although there are still many gaps to be filled. Since I worked on the update while cut off from written references and from the Internet, there are several new gaps which should be easy to fill for the next update.

Once again, special thanks are due to Glenn Giffen (GMG) and to Wybe Koopmans (WK) for their original input. • Next step: relevant clippings from chess magazines.
