Mar-31-14  zanzibar: Again, like my other comment, BritBase has all the missing games (colors/rounds/exact dates included).

This one is also in the first Hastings-1 zipfile.

Use the same links. I won't check the other Hastings you posted today until after you synch with BritBase.

Sorry if you already looked at BritBase and found problems. But if that's the case, I sure would like to know. I have a great trust for the info on that site, and regard it as "definitive".
