Dmitry Yakovenko, offers his own system of defining the World chess champion
He proposes to define not one, but three candidates. These candidates together with the reigning champion will compete for the crown in matches. Semifinal matches may consist of 6 or 8 games, and the final – of 10 or 12 games respectively. At the same time he believes that the best formula is 8-10. Candidates may be a World Cup winner, the holder of the highest average rating for the previous year and the winner of the Grand Prix.
In addition, Yakovenko discusses various pros and cons of his system.
