   Sep-19-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
Tabanus: He's here! :) Oh, wait..
   Sep-19-17 chessforum (replies)
Tabanus: <On Moscow Open A (2016) I can't see the trophy symbol> But now I can, after adding text (link to crosstable) in the bio. Heh..
   Sep-18-17 Bunratty Masters (2016)
Tabanus: G Jones vs J O'Connor, 2016 should be 1-0, else it looks fine. Malcolm Pein has only 5 games, for some reason, and perhaps an unplayed draw for (or between) Quinn and Rawlinson.
   Sep-18-17 IMSA Elite Mind Games (Women's Rapid) (2016)
Tabanus: The one missing game is Krush vs Socko 0-1 in rd. 5. Apparently it was not played.
   Sep-18-17 Aeroflot Open (2016)
Tabanus: Standings updated. Someone must have done a job here, I found only one wrong game result (correction slip sent).
   Sep-17-17 Reykjavik Open (2016)
Tabanus: Standings list updated for the 70 players with 6 points or more. One wrong game result found, two duplicate games, and a few mysteries such as S D Sigfusson vs D Dvirnyy, 2016 . Andreikin has 2 unplayed draws in rds 3 and 4 (and hence only 8 games), Mamedyarov and Movsesian 1 ...
   Sep-17-17 S D Sigfusson vs D Dvirnyy, 2016
Tabanus: Chess-Results has unplayed 1-0 for this last round pairing. Perhaps the organizer decided to create a "stub", so that we would not be fooled.
   Sep-17-17 Sigurdur Eiriksson vs H Baldursson, 2016
Tabanus: This game and Sigurdur Eiriksson vs H Baldursson, 2016 have same players, same round and date, but different games scores. I can't immmediately figure it out.
   Sep-17-17 Sigurdur Eiriksson vs H Baldursson, 2016
Tabanus: This game and Sigurdur Eiriksson vs H Baldursson, 2016 have same players, same round and date, but different game scores. I can't immmediately figure it out.
   Sep-17-17 Hasselbacken Open (2016)
Tabanus: Standings updated for the 50 players with 6 points or more. Three duplicate games were found, and one wrong game result (correction slips sent). The mysterious 5-mover E Thorn vs V Mikhalevski, 2016 I requested deleted, as the two did not play each other (in Chess-Results).
