Feb-27-08  suenteus po 147: <Resignation Trap> This may seem like an odd question after your excellent photo post, but why is it so hard to track down round information for Soviet/Russian championship tournaments? All the PGNs I find online always have complete games, but never round information for any of the games. It makes it rather difficult to assemble tournament collections as a result.
Mar-03-08  Resignation Trap: <suenteus po 147> When PGNs were new, apparently it wasn't considered <that> important to record round numbers or exact dates of each game. The games generally were from tournament books or bulletins, and if you're lucky, you may be able to track down the round numbers by locating such publications. One source for these is: . Click on a publication date range, then click "Tournaments and matches".

Are there any specific tournaments which you have in mind? Perhaps I can help!

Mar-09-08  suenteus po 147: <Resignation Trap> I had in mind to collect particular Soviet Championships, such as ones where Bronstein, Petrosian, and Smyslov won. However, while complete PGN exist in multitude, and complete championships appear to be in the database, it seems futile to begin collecting the games if there's no easy way to organize them. I'm sure among you, <sneaky pete>, and <nescio> you have every bulletin and tournament book a soviet tournament collector could ever need. When I get some time I'll post some tournaments I'd like to organize, and if you find the necessary info we can begin working on them. Thanks for taking the time to address my inquiry!
