Obvious copy/paste problem there but you might as well go ahead and pick all of the games.

  whiteshark: <OCF> No, I only have noticed that <Mame vs Mame> had played 30,31 and 33 moves during their last three Gashimov Memorial games. So I'm curious if there's a numerological pre-arrangement conspiracy going on. I'll keep it that way. ;)

And good luck to the rest of you. :)

Jun-22-18  paavoh: Hi <whiteshark>, what is your connection to Finland? You seem to know the language, if I'm correct. Thanks for your notes on Finnish chess players.

  whiteshark: <paavoh> I've no special relation to Finland, but once living in Lübeck and working there as shipping agent I have a 'special' relation to the Baltic. ;)

<You seem to know the language, if I'm correct.> All credit belong to https://translate.google.com/

It seems to me that Finnish chessplayers are a bit uncared for here at chessgames.com - I've purely accidental checked just two issues of the <Kirje Shakki> magazine http://www.shakki.net/liitot/skl/ for deceased players.

Jun-27-18  paavoh: Thanks <whiteshark> for the explanations. I should pick up the translator myself again, it seems to work much better than in the past.

And good luck for die Mannschaft today!
