  zanzibar: This game was somehow missed...

Emms vs D King, 2003

A 4-player RR2 should have 12 games, not 11.

  zanzibar: Somebody needs to check me, I there's something partially wrong with what I said above.

That <Emms--King> game is part of the tournament.

But the last statement is right, and there still should be another game between the pair (i.e. <King--Emms>), from R5.

Jun-03-15  Retireborn: <z> Britbase has a downloadable pgn for this tournament here:-

King-Emms (r5) has a note explaining it was postponed from 30 Aug to 1st September ie it was actually played after r6.

  zanzibar: And more thanks <rb>.

That's a good piece of info, and might help explain why <CG> missed the game initially!
