2010 Candidates

What do informed chess observers think about FIDE's recent proposal to introduce a Candidates' event in the 2008-2011 World Championship cycle?

What's the consensus?

  • Timing: Poor, don't introduce it mid-cycle.
  • Format: Good, but only as a candidate's event, not as a title event.
  • Privileges to certain players: Depends what you think of a particular player.
