  Tabanus: <Paint My Dragon: <WCC> <Tabz> Going quietly mad here. Bathroom ripped out today>

My neighbor did that some years ago, it cost him 100.000 NOK. I just took the old lists etc. down, scraped clean, used spackle, painted in three strokes (the pipes with metal paint is important), and put everything back. Since then I've been in the Bistro.

  Paint My Dragon: <Tab>. Beginning to wish I had done something similar to you. I am suffering a colossal case of confibularity right now.

<Wartime Comedy Coup>. Yes, really sad. Everyone still talks about that episode and how clever it was to respect the real horrors of war, within the bounds of a comedy.

<Paddington Bear> Well yes it certainly made an impression on me- unlike any other episode, and I have seen them all, I remember where I was when I watched it.

On a lighter note, I'd like to point out how much I enjoyed your books as a child.

<El Trejo>

I'm trying to Tabanize Game Collection: Korchnoi - Geller Candidates Quarterfinal 1971, and I'm a bit confused. Don't we put the country name in the header as well?

On Larsen - Uhlmann Candidates Quarterfinal (1971) you have:

<Real Club Náutico, Las Palmas, 13-30 May 1971>

Shouldn't Spain be included in the header?

This is what I put (so far):

<Moscow, USSR 13-31 May 1971> table[
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Pts
1 Korchnoi 1 ˝ ˝ 0 1 ˝ 1 1 5˝
2 Geller 0 ˝ ˝ 1 0 ˝ 0 0 2˝
]table

  Tabanus: <Spain> Yes maybe. I settled on no rule on this, depending on whether the country (Spain) is mentioned in the text, or how well-known the city is.

I've made a first version of Game Collection: Budapest Interzonal Playoff 1979, whaddajathink?

  Chessical: <Tabanus> I am preparing a first draft of Petrosian - Korchnoi, Candidates Semifinal, 1971.

If you would prefer, I can submit the draft directly to you by e-mail if you should wish to first edit it yourself (as with the WCC process).

Oct-30-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Hi <Chessical>, perhaps WCCEP would like to edit it. I can do it too, but first I have other matches on agenda. Anyway, could you please post it here in my forum? That's the easiest way for me (and her perhaps) to find it later.

<Chessical, Tab>

Posting it here in <Tab's> forum is a grand idea.

One of us will find time to work on it I'm sure. Maybe both.

  Paint My Dragon: <Tabz> Some suggestions for Budapest Playoff 1979.

<The match conditions specified best of six games, or the first to reach 3.5 points … from the Interzonal.>.

2nd para – it doesn’t feel right to introduce Sax in this way, unless he is then going to figure in the discussion. It gives the impression he is another contestant, or some previously mentioned assistant of one of the players. If it’s just meant to be an interesting ‘side fact’, then you could try something like … <Along with fellow grandmaster and olympic team colleague Gyula Sax, the players resided in the same square kilometre of Budapest>

<before meeting Ribli for the playoff> would be better to clear up any confusion that it might refer to them meeting during the izt.

<Game 2 was an uneventful Symmetrical English>. Words like 'boring' can be a bit too subjective, unless the actual quote of an observer reporting the event.

I may have misunderstood “Or Larsen was unfavorable:” I believe you are saying it may be ‘sour grapes’ from Larsen – i.e. he had been affected by a similar personal experience and felt bitter about it. How about … <However, Larsen may have been nursing his own wounds in this regard: Adorjan vs Larsen 1979 had ruined his chance to run once more for the title.> I might not have fully grasped what you meant though.

<The game was a morale blow to Ribli>

Grammatically better to avoid starting sentences with ‘And’ and ‘But’, if possible -

<Now it was he who had to win, and with the black pieces!>

<… before game 6, but it was not his day either.>

Such a pity there are no records of seconds, arbiters etc. I could imagine Sax and maybe Forintos being involved. Still … a good report nevertheless … and for me, more fun than leaking pipes!

  Tabanus: <PMD> Thanks, done! Better now?

Yes I meant that Larsen may have been sore, sad, unhappy, envious, or whatever.

  OhioChessFan: <This game was a morale blow to Ribli.>

This just doesn't sound right. Maybe "This game was a blow to Ribli's morale." Not sure on that either, though I think it's a touch better than the text.

Oct-31-14

  WCC Editing Project:

<Ohio> is right- "a morale blow" isn't idiomatic.

"This game was a blow to Ribli's morale." is just about perfect, IMO.

Oct-31-14

  Tabanus: Thanks, changed. Perhaps "<The> game was a blow to Ribli's morale"?

  Paint My Dragon: <Tab> Still looking at your link above, but I'm not seeing any changes to the original draft. Are you editing in some other space?

Oct-31-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Paint My Dragon: Thanks - no need for the name repetition or extra words here ...

<Before the playoff, Adorjan had defeated Ribli 2 to 0>.

But yes, reading okay to me!

  Tabanus: <PMD> I should have waited for your corrections before putting it up for voting!

A quick Tabanization question: do I write <Wijk aan Zee Hoogovens 1971> or <Hoogovens Wijk aan Zee 1971>?

Nov-01-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <WCCEP> Just Hoogovens IMO in the Event field. With Wijk aan Zee in the Site field.

Event: Hoogovens in the period 1938-1999 (with Beverwijk as site before 1968 and Wijk aan Zee after), then Corus 2000-2010 and Tata Steel 2011-2014.

Hmm. <WCCEP> You know I hate these Soviet matches. In fact, I'd like to leave Petrosian to you! As with Korchnoi - Petrosian q 1974. So that you get to know them real well :)
