   Jun-23-18 Biographer Bistro
Tabanus: Game Collection: Linares 1995 is up for voting.
   Jun-21-18 Beliavsky vs Illescas Cordoba, 1995
Tabanus: This round 9 game was postponed by one day because Illescas was "indisposed". It was played on the rest day March 12th. (ABC Madrid, 13 March 1995 p. 84)
   Jun-20-18 Altibox Norway (Blitz) (2018) (replies)
Tabanus: <Appaz> He's sometimes talking about "real life consequences", and I recently saw my real name posted by him in his forum. I'm not worried though. Just be observant.
   Jun-16-18 Your Next Move (Blitz) (2018) (replies)
Tabanus: it looks like the official site forgot round 18. Good chances my tables above are also wrong :) (fixable)
   Jun-16-18 FIDE World Championship Knockout Tournament (2000)
Tabanus: New link: I changed to those dates. At least they are more right than January 2000, which it has been until today.
   Jun-13-18 Gelfand vs V Gashimov, 2010
Tabanus: Video:
   Jun-13-18 Leffler
Tabanus: p. 184: Gothenburg CC is 20 years (= founded 1879). Speech by the founder dr. J. A Leffler, who is now living in Stockholm (in 1899). for sure.
   Jun-13-18 Zlatko Ilincic
Tabanus: And June 2018!
   Jun-12-18 R Cabrera Pando vs Gabriel Kimelman, 2018
Tabanus: This page will probably be deleted, as the game is an incomplete dupl. of R Cabrera Pando vs Gabriel Kimelman, 2018 . In case you want to say something that will be axed ;)
   Jun-12-18 K Mafra vs J Soto Vega, 2018
Tabanus: 0-1 in Chess-Results and by position (mate in one).
