<Doctor Tab>

I'm going to nominate Game Collection: Sukhumi 1972 today, and I'd like to do it without making a mistake.

Might you confirm how to fill out the fields?


<Field a Name of tournament> Sukhumi

<Field b Site> Sukhumi, URS

<Field c Year> 1972 is already in the box by default, so I just leave that as it is, right?

<Field d Scoreboard Style> Leaderboard

<Field e Include introduction> Yes


If there are any corrections please let me know.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <WCCEP> Great stuff! Site should be Sukhumi URS without a comma, else OK.

I wonder in the crosstable, the total scores starting with 9,5 etc. should be placed one space to the right? So that 9 is beneath the 0 in 10.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WCC Editing Project:

Thanks <Tab>.

I changed the crosstable like you said, and I nominated it now.

So temporary conclusion 10.b3 seems to work and it creates a range of diffrent tension filled/complicated postions where our hardware superiority should cause the GM serious problems...

<Tab> Quite right. I noticed earlier you had been finding tons of duplicates lately. I hope they fix the one you just mentioned. Maybe they'll fix it right away since <The Grand Piano> seems to be on the <Bistro> at the moment.

I was happy to learn that the "site" field corrections are given a lower priority. I hadn't known that before.

I'm not sure if that's a good idea. I guess I'm biased because the work I'm most interested in doing is researching and posting event records such as this- Game Collection: Tal's Tournament and Matches 1948-1975- that have tons of "side games collections." If the site field is wrong on any of the games it makes the collections look ridiculous.

On happy news, are you enjoying the <Olympiad> and the <World vs. Arcadia Naiditsch>?

Do you think another famous victory for the team is in store?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Hello Jess, the world team game is very drawish but a new glimpse of hope came today. If only Arcadia could make a mistake.

I'm enjoying the olympiad very much. No game collection voting the next two weeks!

The duplicate is removed already. I have one more (a complicated one) left, plus Washington de Oliveira!

Premium Chessgames Member

<Tab> Outstanding.

Yes it's especially encouraging that our webmaster listens to you and <Chessical> when you ask for something, since currently you gentlemen are the most active in creating new tournaments. Five years from now I will still probably be trying to "complete" this and it only goes up to 1975 as it is: Game Collection: Tal's Tournament and Matches 1948-1975.

I'm not sure why even the <Rusbase> webmaster can't find the dates and round pairings for more Soviet events. If he did, I could make more tournament collections too. Well actually anybody could in this case. But that's the only reason I could make <Sukhumi 1972> was because he did have all of the rounds and dates listed on those pgns.

Speaking of the Olympiad I'm guessing you saw this already? But just in case- Topalov vs Vallejo-Pons, 2014.

I wonder how much time <Arcadia> spends with his computer (computers)? One of my favorite parts of the world games is after it's over and the master explains how he/she actually played the game.
