   May-22-17 Beetlestone (replies)
Tabanus: Perhaps especially in 1858, because his mother Martha Beetlestone died in 1856, and his father Sedgley Hayley on 11 Dec 1861. The two married 1815 in Wolverhampton, and had lots of children.

   May-17-17 Reykjavik Open (2017)
Tabanus: I quickly updated the standings table. Pigott has two missing games, whereas Kamsky, Movsesian, Kavutskiy and Almasi has one missing game each (incl. w/o's). These games (and many more down the list) are still not available on the ofiicial site, and may never be.

Tabanus: <CG> I don't know if possible, but perhaps it would be better if the software could pick the players with say 50% score or more. Just an idea.

Tabanus: Congrats on winning the Copenhagen Chess Challenge 2017! - 1,5 points clear of the rokle.

Tabanus: I searched in vain (incl. at ) for any connection to Ajax. But perhaps it was another club.
