nnThe event also served as the annual 3-move WCDF qualifying tournament. The highest finishing qualifiers in the tournament (excluding present world champions) were Ron King of Barbados and Javzan Gerelchuluun of Mongolia. The WCDF is soliciting bids for the following three 2009 events: 1) Moiseyev-King 3-move world title match 2) Durdyeva – Gerelchuluun 3-move ladies title match 3) 2009 GAYP Qualifying Tournament.
