I just received news from the Office of FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov that he has nominated Ray Robson and Fabiano Caruana for the World Cup.

He has also nominated Tkachiev, Vladislav (FRA), Ghaem Maghami, Ehsan (IRI), Cheparinov, Ivan (BUL) and Pelletier, Yannick (SUI).

I am so happy for Ray and Fabiano for having this chance! Congratulations! Thank you President Ilyumzhinov! It is a great decision to nominate Caruana and Robson!
