<Tab> I just started JFQuizing Game Collection: Korchnoi - Petrosian Candidates Semifinal 1974 and I don't see the source listing for all that great information from

"Kazic:"

Is it on the draft but I just can't see it? If not, might you please post the source?

Sep-28-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Bozidar Kazic wrote the chapter "Tempest on the Black Sea coast" (pp. 94-97) in the book "Candidates' Matches 1974" which was written by Mikhail Botvinnik, Aleksandar Matanovic, Bozidar Kazic and Mikhail M Yudovich Sr. (Centar za unapredivanje saha/US Chess Federation, Belgrade 1974). The four are listed as authors of the book, and Kazic as editor of it.

Game Collection: Korchnoi - Tal Candidates Semifinal 1968 took place "in the lecture hall of the Central House of the Soviet Army" (http://www.chesslibrary.ru/publ/ehn...). Have not found arbiter yet.

  Tabanus: <WCCEP> I just found out that Yudovich and Kazic also wrote a book on the 1968 matches. Probably not in English?

Oh it's in English all right.

Outstanding work <Tab>!!

I'll be downloading all night. I live in constant terror that great web resources might suddenly vanish, so I try to archive it while I can.

I used to get a lot of good information from a very similar website as the one you gifted me, but was shocked when it became a "pay site."

I even tried to pay to join, but the "ROUBLE BOARD" wouldn't process my credit card.

By "English" I meant "Russian."

What I really meant was that the DJVU book files have good enough resolution so that when they are converted to word files they can actually be translated. Sort of.

  Tabanus: <WCCEP> Thanks for that! And on Game Collection: Tal - Gligoric Candidates Quarterfinal 1968, what's left there? Not much I think!

1) The table needs 1/2 signs if that's voted for. Plus round numbers and Pts (but I will not insist on that after all).

2) I recently started using <Karpova>'s footnoting system with small (x)'s (i. e. footnotes in parentheses) inside the text and always a space in front of the footnote! I like it more already than the tiny way.

3) <Wijk aan Zee 1968> --> Hoogovens (1968).

4) <Sousse Interzonal> --> Sousse Interzonal (1967).

5) last sentence: "a candidates semifinal match" can with ambition be replaced with "the Korchnoi - Tal Candidates Semifinal (1968)".

I found no pictures from the match.

Thanks Jean Taubenhaus.

I'm going to stick with the ENDNOTES until the end of time, but I added all your other suggestions, except for the small 1/2s- Maybe wait until somebody else might vote. You know <Z-dawg> raised a good point about ease of manipulating the data with the "=" signs- and he is creating many top secret chess search algorhythm method programs and such.

Ok back later-

Sep-29-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Hmm, I now see you have link to Sousse Interzonal (1967) on top, so perhaps just

"to whip him into shape for the interzonal."

<Tab's House>

I'm not against "doubling up" on tournament or match hyperlinks- in fact I prefer it.

I originally had two hyperlinks for the <Dr. Seuss Interzonal>.

  Tabanus: Semifinals 1974: If tied at 10-10, the outcome would be decided by the drawing of lots. Final: If tied at 12-12, then drawing of lots (Kazic p. 16). <WCCEP> See this? I'll delete my Game Collection: Korchnoi - Petrosian Candidates Semifinal 1974.

I ended up deciding on "1/2" and do you know why?

I spend a lot of time "counting" result markers on crosstables and it's much easier to count the "1/2" than the "=".

Game Collection: Hastings 1948/1949

Round Nine- Jan ?
W J Muhring vs P F Schmidt, 1948

This game was played earlier in the day on Jan 8, or was it played on Jan 7?

You make the call please-

  Tabanus: W J Muhring vs P F Schmidt, 1948:

"De Tijd" 10 Jan 1949 p. 5 (http://kranten.delpher.nl/nl/view/i...) says Friday (Jan. 7). I would bank on that, 99%!

Sep-30-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  WCC Editing Project:

<Tab> ok fixed- but does this mean Muhring and Schmidt played two rounds on Jan 7? Rounds 8 and 9?

It's 100 per cent for sure that <The Tide Shifts and Floods our Shacks> will be back online? http://www.schack.se/tfs/history/19...

Any idea when?

I downloaded tons of them, but not all of the years. I won't make that mistake again. When it goes back online I'm downloading every single one of them.

You never know when one of these sites is going to go down forever.

Did you happen to download any of them?

I have the TFS July 1950 with FIDE report, and I was looking on p.208 to see which players were awarded FIDE titles.

But the list looks incomplete to me?

I guess I will look in Gaige "Personalia" but I'd prefer a primary source to a secondary source.

  Paint My Dragon: <WCC> If I have it right, you are looking for the inaugural FIDE title awards of 1950? If so, a handy checklist that I've not found any errors with is given in the Kazic book 'International Championship Chess' if you have it. He lists all titles and years awarded in the section near the back. Kazic was in high office at FIDE when he wrote the book, so had good access to records. Alternatively, I can look anything specific up for you.

I would also vouch for the Wikipedia article 'List of chess grandmasters' which should be accurate for GM title awards up to around 2010 - not sure after that.

<Tabanus> Some editorial (Burt Hochburg) and Paul Keres commentary on the Karpov-Spassky Candidates match in Chess Life and Review - would you like a paragraph for your report? I can look in Levy and Botvinnik's book on Karpov as well.

<Jean Seberg>

Brlliant! I do in fact have that volume, but didn't realize it. That will do for now. I can check it in relation to Gaige, for example.

Ultimately, however, I'd like to source all of the FIDE title awarding information to a primary source. That's where <The Prince of Tidskrifts> comes in...

I trust they'll be back, because <Jean Taubenhaus> talked to them already.

I think the owner of the journal is his sister in law or something.
