  Richard Taylor: They are allowed to put any games up -
but Bjelobrk's game was brilliant.

I cant see Chandlers games.

  Benzol: <Richard> There are only three of Chandler's games listed. Mike Steadman on the other hand has eight games listed. It's a bit strange.
Feb-24-06  cuendillar: In many large open tournaments, only the top boards are recorded. In XXXV Rilton Cup (2006) for example, only the top 20 boards are registered. This was done by a carbon paper below the scoresheet, which the arbiter then gathered.
