2015-2016 Women's Grand Prix, the Players

After the previous post, 2015-2016 Women's Grand Prix, Khanty-Mansiysk, I left myself two tasks to close the chapter on the 4th Women's Grand Prix (WGP):-
Add the final, overall standings to the page 2015-2016 FIDE WGP, and add the names of the participants to the Index of Women Players.

This is now done.

The chart on the left shows the cumulative scores of all 22 participants in the 4th WGP. The two players listed at the top -- Ju Wenjun and Koneru,H -- also finished in convincing 1st and 2nd place according to the WGP scoring system.

Ju Wenjun earned a seat in the next championship match, currently shown on the FIDE calendar as Women’s World Championship 2018; Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia. She will be playing against the winner of next year's knockout event, shown as Women's World Chess Championship 2017; Tehran, Iran; 10-Feb-2017 to 5-Mar-2017.

For previous blog reports on the final standing of the first three WGPs, see:-

The first two posts, 2009-2010 & 2011-2012, could use a chart like the one shown above.
