In response to users individually:
It seems very illogical, doesn't it? They didn't really think that this scenario would occur, but I can't find any way to excuse putting it in the rules.
I agree that chess rules should be predominantly made by people who play chess. Things need to be changed.
I hope that MVL does get in another way, but I don't think it'll really happen. Although I am very excited by the Candidates/World Championship next year, so it'll be a good year even if the Grand Chess Tour's rules continue to screw over players.
Yes, I think there should be many more 2650-2750, or at least more 2700-2750. It makes it more exciting for the fans, and gives more players a chance to join the elite, perhaps. My suggestions for others who are overlooked, generally, are Harikrishna, Rapport, and Nepomniachtchi
Well, first of all, I obviously think that, although players shouldn't wear overly ostentatious clothing and should comport themselves professionally, the current "dress code" is stupid. However, I disagree about writing moves down. I think that it, although perhaps an aid to calculation, isn't very different from just thinking about the move or taking a minute to breathe, if the pause given is objectionable. I agree that it is helpful, but I don't believe that it should be prevented, as it isn't, really, in my opinion, very important. That, or the penalties should be reduced. Let me know what you think.
