    Appeal the way Anton was treated at a key moment just before one of the most important games of his life. This situation is just unbelievable and intolerable.

    One has to wonder why FIDE keeps shooting itself in the head. Anton's situation fed the narrative that anything can happen in this tournament which builds the excitement and interest in chess. If the reports are correct and Anton doesn't reconsider we are probably going to lose another generational talent who seemed destined to become a supergrandmaster. This is a shame.
