  PhilFeeley: Yay! Elisabeth Paehtz is leading - according to this table. What a mess.
Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: Somebody should be more on the ball. They're only in round 5.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <PhilFeeley> I really (also) do not understand the PGNs from Iceland.

According to Reykjavik Open (2016)/Elisabeth Paehtz Ms Paehtz have played Thorgiersson 5 times and all as black.

Would you be kindly enough to volunteer to and get this tournament in order? We also have the Women Chess Championship and the Men's Candidates to worry about.

Be a nice chap, this would help out CG a lot, and I'll nominate you for Most Helpful Caissar in 2016


Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: Volunteer? Every other place seems to have no problem with results. Did Reykjavik send them a file with more than one PGN for some games?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <PhilFeeley> Click on that link for E. Paehtz in my last post and see.

I really should get some sleep... Gotta head to work in about 6 hours here.

Mar-12-16  morfishine: FWIW: I pointed out error over at forum and BTW, at least before yesterdays game, Ms. Paehtz was doing well with 3.5 pts after 4 rounds tied for second
Mar-12-16  Mr. V: Beliavsky never ages, it seems.
Mar-13-16  Shams: The hometown players are being gracious hosts this year if the random sample of games i just looked at is any indication:

H Einarsson vs D Di Berardino, 2016
R Rapport vs H Danielsen, 2016

  Robin01: I believe Awonder Liang also has 5 points in this event, but I do not see his name listed on the leader list.
Premium Chessgames Member
  jamesmaskell: <Robin01> You are correct. Looks like not all the games for this event have been uploaded. Liang's first round win against Frank Modder doesnt appear to be there.
Mar-14-16  galdur: Grigoriants - Rapport 1. Nf3 h6 2. e4 g5
Mar-15-16  Mr. V: We Andreikin fans wait many moons for a hero to emerge from the shadows.
Mar-15-16  Bruce Graham: <Mr. V> Andreikin drew with the delightful Ms. Tania Sachdev who is ranked at about 2370.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Robin01: Awonder Liang finished with 6.5, which may be enough for a GM norm.
Mar-15-16  weary willy: Excellent tournament for India - after 9 rounds, Gupta and Sachdev are playing well above their ratings
Mar-15-16  waustad: The last round starts early. They start at 11:00 local time, which is the same as British time. With DST active in North America and not in Europe, figure it out yourself keeping these annoying facts in mind.
Mar-15-16  waustad: BTW, with a win tommorow against Alexander Beliavsky Tanya Sachdev gets a GM norm. I haven't worked it out, but a draw would probably do it. Her tpr is so far 2596 ( and a draw with a 2630 might be enough. A win and it's nailed. I'm sure she has done the calculation that wasn't worth my trouble.
Mar-16-16  Mr. V: <Bruce Graham> Of course, no surprise, he draws with nearly everybody :) But he is a unique player, so us fans of his must maintain hope.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Bruce Graham....Even Robert Fischer is playing!>

Guess they let anyone in--this hasbeenusetawas could more'n likely have entered, too.

Mar-16-16  sonia91: <waustad> Tania already got a GM norm after 9 rounds: does not adjust the rating floor
Mar-17-16  waustad: <sonia> I eventually figured that out. I wish I'd have seen this earlier. Then again, I'll remember that for future reference and with the draw against a 2630 opponent in the last round, it should be a 10 game norm.
Mar-17-16  waustad: I don't know of any 8 game norm situations, but 7 game norms in continental team play are fairly common.
Mar-19-16  starry2013: Mr. V <Ms. Tania Sachdev who is ranked at about 2370.>

waustad: <Her tpr is so far 2596>

That's way above her rating. So from being 2370 she's now 2600?

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <waustad: <Her tpr is so far 2596>>

TPR= tournament performance rating.

Mar-19-16  waustad: Tania Sachdev has been busy with getting married and commentating and such. Her peak rating was in the mid 2400s, so a stronger performance shouldn't be that much of a shock.
