C30 Zonals

Continuing with C30 Regulations for World Cup Qualifiers (October 2021), where I referenced 'Players lists and full pairings of FIDE World Cups published' (fide.com; June 2021), the following table uses the same format as the equivalent post for the previous cycle. C29 Zonals (September 2019). For each event, it references the corresponding number of 'The Week in Chess' (TWIC).

For many events, the FIDE document mentioned above, 'Players lists', references a page for the event in Chess-results.com. It turns out that these are only a subset of the events documented in TWIC.

1.0: TWIC 1386 (2021)
1.10: TWIC 1381

2.0: TWIC 1386 (2021)
2.1: TWIC 1356
2.2: TWIC 1387
2.3: (02)
2.4: (03)
2.5: (04)

3.0: TWIC 1386 (2021)
3.0i: TWIC 1386 (01, AICF)
3.1: TWIC 1387
3.2: TWIC 1388
3.3: TWIC 1383
3.4: TWIC 1384
3.5: TWIC 1387
3.6: TWIC 1377
3.7: TWIC 1311

4.0: TWIC 1386

In previous cycles continental championships were organized for both years of the cycle, with players qualifying from both events. In the current cycle, only a single event was held for each continent.

TWIC: 'AICF World Cup Qualifier 2021'; FIDE: 'Asian Continental - Indian Qual', 'India Asian quota qualifier'

See GM Albornoz, Cuba y Barrientos, Colombia na Copa do Mundo (fideamerica.org), which implies that the representatives from the zone were chosen by the zone president.

Same as '(02)'?

In the 'C30 Regulations' post, I wrote,

The covid coronvirus created havoc with qualifying events for the cycle C30. I hope I don't fall into any more traps along the way.

While I didn't see any traps, I did notice that the various events were not covered by the chess press as well as they were in previous cycles. The blame still falls on covid-19.
