  chessgames.com: <Tabanus> OK, sure. Stein vs Benko, 1962, Gligoric vs Stein, 1962, Benko vs Gligoric, 1962, Benko vs Stein, 1962, and Stein vs Gligoric, 1962 have all been pruned from Stockholm Interzonal (1962).

  Tabanus: <cg> Thanks! The introduction to Stockholm Interzonal (1962) now needs a slight change, I'll give it a try. I think the playoff crosstable can still be there.

  TheFocus: <Tabanus> When we vote in the play-off, just post a link to it in the Stockholm intro.

  Tabanus: Done. Not sure how successful, though. I had to delete this whole section which became meaningless:

"The play-off round numbers in these games extend to include the extra 5 of 6 rounds necessary to determine a clear winner of the double-round-robin playoffs (each player received a bye, which is why there were 27 rounds indicated in the total of 26 rounds played between some) as the two leaderboard tables of the single and double round-robins both have their games listed in this same tournament page index."

  FSR: <chessgames.com: ... I happen to maintain a secret list I call <Puns We Will Never Use>. Just to give you a tease, one of them is "Let's Talk about Sax." I hope I don't come across as sounding humorless, but I believe it's important to maintain standards.>

I am shocked and appalled to discover that you have used the "pun" <Come on Eileen> for E Tranmer vs M Karff, 1950. In <Come On Eileen>, the singer exhorts the eponymous Eileen to "take off everything," including her "pretty red dress," so that he may fulfill his "dirty" thoughts with her. http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/dexy...

  chessgames.com: We've also used "Me and Julio" for Kaplan vs Bronstein, 1975, a song that some people believe is about homoeroticism. If it was a top 40 song with an innocent sounding title we're OK with it. We're no prudes, but we try to maintain a facade of dignity :)

  perfidious: Never heard <that> about <Me and Julio> till now.

Maybe a case of some people projecting their tastes or fears onto others.

  Domdaniel: So, perhaps Chuck Berry's "I Want You to Play with my Ding-a-ling" (a hit song!) could apply to, say, Ding Linlin vs R Wang, 2001 ...??

  FSR: I hadn't heard that about <Me and Julio> either. (The Beatles' <Please Please Me> is another story.) From Wikipedia:

<In a July 20, 1972 interview for Rolling Stone, Jon Landau asked: "What is it that the mama saw? The whole world wants to know." Simon replied "I have no idea what it is... Something sexual is what I imagine, but when I say 'something', I never bothered to figure out what it was. Didn't make any difference to me." This implies that Paul Simon left the crime up to the imagination of the listener, allowing each person who listens to the song to draw their own conclusion from their own thoughts and experiences. This has not stopped speculation on a definite interpretation: commentators have detected references to recreational drug use, and believe that the mother saw the boy buying drugs. More recently, in October 2010, Simon described the song as "a bit of inscrutable doggerel."> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Me_an...

  chessgames.com: <My Ding-a-ling> I believe that very pun is buried deep somewhere in the Pun Voting Booth, where it should probably stay.

<Can we please have a forum for the upcoming <2014 FIDE WOMEN'S WORLD RAPID & BLITZ CHAMPIONSHIP>, which starts tomorrow?> Sure, it will be up soon.

  chessgames.com: On a more serious note, somebody has been playing Guess the Move and pointing out that a few games submitted are less than optimal.

A good example, on R Portela vs Capablanca, 1909 this user writes < white won but he was totally lost from about move 30. in a lost position it is hard to suggest good moves > After reviewing the game, I have to admit, he's absolutely correct. Capablanca had a rare lapse of attention and overlooked an elementary move sequence, beyond that he was up the exchange and a healthy passed pawn.

This is a horrible suggestion for Guess the Move, for as that user writes, it's hard to suggest good moves in a lost position. It's a good example why we can't just process "every game by Capablanca" (et al) in an effort to make GTM more powerful.

So we've implemented a new feature where admins can not only remove a game from GTM but also mark it as inappropriate for GTM, making it impossible to resubmit in the future. This game was the 1st to get the axe in that manner.

In short, don't be shy to tell us about games that have slipped into GTM that really shouldn't be there.

  WannaBe: Manually downloaded update 55 (offline version) installed for 64 & 32-bit browser version, verified both worked on Win7.

Last night, I tried the online install version and it did not work (I think it's happened before...) and I also had to install the offline version. Very strange.

Will verify Win8.1 later today.

  WannaBe: Win8.1 verified, 64-bit, 1.7_55 Java, was able to see Deluxe Chess Viewer.
