Antonio would still have a very good chance of getting a World Cup slot even if he loses his final round game, due to his good tiebreak ranking. Wesley is somewhat in the bubble with about half as much chance of making it with a draw, while Torre may have no choice but to play for a win on Saturday.

As is the case with any qualifier tournaments, It should not come as a surprise if most of the top boards (here involving players with 6.5 points or more going into the final round) end up in short draws.

With a must-win situation among the 6-pointers on the above list, only about the top half of them have a realistic chance of making it to the top 10.
