  Tabanus: <tournaments> Tournament!

Also, the seven separate CG pages for Champions Showdown 2017 should be merged into one.

  Tabanus: Fixed for 2019. No comments here? Lots of interesting games.
Mar-10-19  sudoplatov: I thought Caruana wasn't that good at blitz; he seems to have figured it out here. Fischer wasn't known as a great blitz player until later in his career.

  Count Wedgemore: <sudoplatov> Yes, for some reason he played much better blitz in this tournament than he usually does.

Perhaps a reaction after the tough match with Magnus !?

  Count Wedgemore: <moronovich> Yes, sounds reasonable. That match may have helped him improve his play at faster time controls.
