Feb-22-04  rags: GM Zhang Zhong losing to a 1900 rated player !? This doesnt seem true.. But a great game this was though.
Feb-22-04  PinkPanther: This has to be some sort of screw up on the scoresheet. A player like Zhong should have no player dusting off a 1900 in a simul, much less one on one.
Feb-22-04  PinkPanther: No, it's a mistake. I just looked it up and Andrei Kharitonov is a GM from Russia, who's rated 2561.
Feb-22-04  TrueFiendish: Yes, it seemed not so much that Zhong shouldn't have lost but more that black played amazingly well for a 1900.

  Honza Cervenka:, GM Andrei Kharitonov is the only "Kharitonov" on the list of participants of the 3rd Aeroflot Festival. Of course, he played this game.
Premium Chessgames Member Thanks Honza, we fixed the other games too, including the ones labelled "Ana (?) Kharitonov".

  Calli: <Chessgames> For some reason, the PGN headers often do not get fixed when corrections are made. Not good for downloads! This game still is [Black "Ana Kharitonov"][BlackElo "1935"] in the header.
Premium Chessgames Member <For some reason, the PGN headers often do not get fixed when corrections are made.> That's intentional. Because player names are the most difficult part of the database to normalize, this gives us a way to review what changes the administrators have made to the player names. This is very important in cases where games have been misfiled.

<Not good for downloads!> We're developing a mass-download utility which will normalize the PGN headers to the database automatically. That should solve the problem nicely.
