Invitation in WCH 1 stage 3 round-robin

Hello to all.

As I've been asked, in WCH 1 round-robin final tournament there are 2 players from WCH 1 stage 2 group 3 because it was not possible (at least desirable) to adjudicate game 8029 in its current position (move 36)... So it is not possible to tell who wins the group yet. However if I had to adjudicate this game, it would be a draw so Alberto Gueci would win the tournament. As WCH 1 stage 3 must start now and as I needed one more player to fill the group, according to the rules Francois Caire (due to his position of possible -likely- winner in the tournament and his rating) was invited to solve game 8029 problem.

Wise decision

Thanks Wolfgang... "as always" may be too much, just doing my possible. I appreciate :)

I have no doubt that there will be some cases where any decision will be unfair when applying rules. Anyway, I'm glad with the current rules, very few problems... So many tournaments, only one TD (Tournament Director). But I'll come back on the issue of a council / board in a few months, I think it's a logical continuation.
