|Nov-07-21|| ||Tabanus: Four wrong game results found and corrected. A little too many missing games for editing the standings table. |
The databases have a handful of games not belonging to this event, for example Pia Cramling vs Jon Arnason 1-0 - she did not even participate. Two CG games also not belonging I moved to Reykjavik (1986).
Probably not all the 262 games are right, but I did my best.
